How far is your favorite trail run? How fast is your pace? How many calories did you burn on your last hike? A Speed and Distance Monitor or Heart Rate Monitor can help you answer all of these questions. The secret to optimal fitness isn't just the amount of exercise you get, but the intensity of the exercise (not too high & not too low). Join our technical experts to learn more about Fitness Technology components and their use and functionality in your exercise and fitness routine. Caution: Before initiating any exercise program, consult a physician to design a program that is well suited for your goals and current conditioning.
