Tech Culture: Get in shape with fitness tech

1:26 /

Brian Tong shows you CNET's top picks for wearable fitness tech that you -- and Cee Lo Green -- can use to reach your fitness goals this summer.

All right, guys. We wanted to talk about fitness wearable tech. It's a huge trend that's really hot right now. And we wanna show you two of the best that will help you track and improve your overall activity level. Now, the first one, this is called the Fitbit One, and is 99 bucks. It's a product you can clip on. And during the day, it tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and stairs climbed. Now, during the night, it also measures your sleep cycle and syncs that data wirelessly to your Smartphone or computer, so you can keep track of it and set goals. And it's really one of our favorite fitness devices. Now, the other product we like is the Jawbone Up, and it's not a clip-on but a wearable bracelet. It comes in a variety of colors, and we know that style is important, and it's 129 bucks. This gadget also tracks your steps, distance traveled and calories burned, and syncs this information by plugging it into the headphone jack of your phone. What sets it apart is its app that really has detailed charts and good-looking graphics that showcase your activity level and your friends', so you can compare-- and you can tell here that I had a healthy four hours of sleep, and I wasn't even in Vegas. Another cool thing about these devices is that they both have vibrating alarms inside of them, so you aren't waking up suddenly to a blurring radio. And trust me, it's more pleasant. So, there you have it. You may not have thought about fitness tech, but these are our top two picks we're checking out.
