Is wearable technology useful for Business Travel?

 

The last two decades of technological innovation have raised the bar for comfort in traveling. Of course, when you travel for business, you may find that your technological needs aren't about comfort: they're about usefulness. Whether you need to track your heart rate, keep a tally on the number of steps/miles you've walked in a given day, or ensure that you keep on task and on schedule, there's tech out there for you.

When you're traveling for business in the Big Apple and need reliable NYC ground transportation, we're the optimal choice. Our New York car service, staffed by a team of elite, professional chauffeurs, will get you where you need to be in luxury and comfort.

Here's our rundown on the top four wearable devices for your business trips:

Fitbit Alta HR

The Fitbit Alta HR is a great buy when your goal is fitness. With a sleek, 25% slimmer design, extended battery life, and all the same features of the revered Charge 2, the Alta HR is an unmatched fitness companion. Touting a seven day battery life without sacrificing any core features, it's a great choice whether you're looking to upgrade or enter the market of fitness technology for the first time.

JBL UA Sport Wireless Heart Rate Headphones

Maybe you're looking to track your heart rate while you're traveling and ensure that your workout abroad is meeting or beating your workout at home. What's better than a good run? You guessed it: a good run with good music. These wireless headphones, paired with a completely free app, track your workouts with exceptional detail. They also provide audio cues for things like pace, distance, heart rate and heart-rate zones, to ensure that you're not falling behind just because you're traveling. Best of all, these headphones—unlike many wireless headphones—actually stay in while you're working out!

Apple Watch Series 2

The ubiquitous Apple Watch! While its predecessor failed to impress the market, the Series 2 sports waterproofing and GPS, not to mention much faster load speeds! The Apple Watch is the perfect addition to any busy traveler's load-out, ensuring that you can receive calls and texts even if your phone is stowed in your carry-on. The Apple Watch can also be synced to your iPhone calendar if it's tethered to your phone so that you can make sure you're on schedule and on time for any lunches, meetings, or calls that you need to make!

Garmin Forerunner 235

Whether you're a serious or casual runner, the Forerunner 235 is an excellent choice for an all-in-one watch and fitness tracker. It boasts incredibly accurate GPS tracking for steps taken, as well as a 24/7 wrist-based heart rate monitor. Besides that, it can easily track activity throughout the day, whether you're walking or sleeping, and deliver accurate feedback to iPhone and Android devices. Best of all, unlike the Alta HR, the Forerunner 235 is waterproof, so you can take it with you in the shower or while swimming!
