Ep. 212 - Should You Use Wearable Tech?

On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio we discuss wearable tech, and it’s application to sleep, health markers and training readiness. With how much the wearable tech industry has grown over the past couple of years, we wanted to dissect the pros and cons of them, and whether getting a Fitbit, Oura or Whoop, as some key leading examples, are worth the money. Where we spend a great deal of time discussing is at the start, its application to sleep, and towards the end, whether its energy expenditure predictions are worth looking at!

“Just remember what you’re doing it for, and make sure it’s for the good reason.”
