Are you looking to get in shape? Or have you recently started to get into shape and are looking for a tool to help make your life easier? Maybe your New Year’s resolution for 2016 is getting in shape. If any of these apply to you, or if you are just looking to improve your health, you should check out the iHealth Edge.
iHealth Edge is an activity and sleep tracker that keeps track of the exercise that you do while tracking your sleep at the same time. A healthy body and a good night’s sleep go hand and hand, and the iHealth Edge combines both into one simple to use device.
For those looking to get in shape, the iHealth Edge tracks steps you take similar to a pedometer, but also gives you other readings that a pedometer doesn’t like the total distance you’ve walked and the number of calories you’ve burned. The more active you are, the more you’ll find yourself using the iHealth Edge to help improve your day to day life.
For those looking to get a better night’s sleep, the iHealth Edge has a sleep tracker that helps keep track of how long you sleep, how many times you wake up during the night, and what time you wake up. There’s even a personal alarm that wakes you up in the morning without waking your partner. The iHealth Edge presents you with a sleep efficiency score which is a quick and easy way to judge your sleep quality. Knowing your sleep efficiency score will help you make changes to your routine to ensure a better night’s sleep. A better night’s sleep is something that we all need!
I, Jeni received the iHealth Edge device to test and review.
I love the iHealth Edge. I wear it primarily as a watch around my wrist, and it has a very modern look and feel to it. It’s super comfortable and stays put while I’m exercising without sliding up and down my wrist like other similar devices do. If you don’t like wearing a watch, you can also wear the iHealthEdge as a clip and clip it to the belt loop on your shorts or jeans. The versatility makes it easy to take with me regardless of what activity I’m doing.
One thing I don’t like about devices that help with your exercise program and keeping track of your activity, is how much programming is required to make them work. There is virtually no programming at all with the iHealth Edge. It’s ready to go in minutes, and it knows when I’m exercising and when I’m resting. It keeps track of the time I spend exercising and the calories I’ve burned. When I’m done exercising, it gives me a report letting me know how I’ve done for the day. It makes it super easy to keep track of my exercise goals.
The iHealth Edge stays on 24 hours a day. I don’t have to press a lot of buttons, or change settings, or anything else that’s complicated with the iHealth Edge. In fact, there are no buttons to fool with. When I go to sleep at night, the iHealth Edge keeps track of how long I sleep, when I get up to go to the bathroom or get a drink of water, and when I wake up for the day. It shows me how well I’m sleeping, and shows me what I need to work on to get a better night’s sleep.
All of the information collected by the iHealth Edge is quick and easy to access using my cell phone. The iHealth Edge can be synched on both Apple and Android devices, and I can share my information directly with my health care provider, who can make suggestions on how to accomplish my exercise goals.
I love that the iHealth Edge takes all of the computation and calculation out of exercising. I no longer have to worry about counting steps or counting calories, because the iHealth Edge takes care of all of that for me, and I don’t even have to tell it that I’m going to exercise.
The iHealth Edge includes 2 wristbands, one black and one grey so that it will match any outfit. It also includes an ultra comfortable sleep wristband, a clip to allow you to hook it to your belt loop, and a charging dock.
The iHealth Edge retails for $69.95 and is available at stores such as Walgreens and Best Buy. It’s also available on the iHealth website which is currently offering free shipping on orders of $25 or more!
