This is a smart thing to do, but it’s a little hard to do in a busy environment, especially compared to other types of exercise. It is the only activity that’s allowed to enter your life for several days. Your brain is so busy that you can’t sit still for an hour or so without your phone plugged into your car. I think that this helps you to think about how you sleep and you can’t sleep at night.
For a while now, we have been seeing a new trend in fitness/workout videos that are using smart devices to control how they are moving. Instead of telling you to just walk, run, lift weights, or lift your heart, these videos tell you to perform specific exercises, and then set the timer on your phone so that you can be in the optimal state of mind for the exercise.
This new trend may be called “battery operated,” but it’s not exactly the same thing as an electric gym. All of the videos I’ve seen so far are using smart devices with a battery that is plugged into your phone or tablet. It’s certainly better than running on a treadmill, but the device does have a battery and you’re still supposed to be using it.
