Health Tip: Using a Fitness Tracker

Making the most of your device

(HealthDay News) -- A fitness tracker can help you realize how much exercise you're really getting and push you to move more.

Here's how to get the most from a fitness tracker, courtesy of Johns Hopkins University Medicine:

  • Wear your tracker every day.
  • Create a realistic goal. While a common milestone is 10,000 steps per day, talk to your doctor about what's healthy and realistic for you.
  • Choose fun activities that you will enjoy doing long-term.
  • Encourage friends and family members to wear a tracker, too.
  • Check your stats each day, and discuss them with your doctor.
