Losing weight before your wedding is a tradition as deeply held as the weddings themselves. Brides and grooms make a big fuss about being “picture perfect” for the big day, which usually equates to being slimmer. Losing weight is not easy for most people, as it requires an incredible amount of time, consistency, restraint, and dedication – things hard to come by when you have to juggle a full-time job, family, and a myriad of fast food options that are cheap, convenient, flavorful, and fattening! Lucky for you, the 21st century has ushered in an era of health technology designed to help us focus on our weight-management goals. From watches that track your footsteps and heart rate to yoga mats that help guide your movements, there is guaranteed to be a device or app that will fulfill your needs.
If you’re obsessive about the details of your activity, this is the gadget for you. In addition to tracking your heart rate, footsteps, and calories burned, the FitBit Charge HR also tracks your sleep patterns and provides you with caller id, all on your wrist!

The app can also trigger an alarm on your phone to scare-off an attacker.
