(HealthDay News) -- You don't absolutely need a fancy gadget to help you get fit, but technology can make it more fun and help motivate you.
The American Council on Exercise mentions these examples:
- Heart-rate monitors that sync with other devices and upload your stats to an app or website.
- A smartphone app that acts as an online coach to offer feedback and suggestions during your workout.
- Apps that monitor exercise duration and distance, calories burned, workouts and more.
- Video games that encourage activity and help you have fun as you get moving.
