Leaked: Another Samsung Fitness Tracker That May Launch With The Galaxy S5

Sam Mobile says the images came from a leaked sales guide for the Galaxy S5. Unlike Samsung’s newly announced Gear Fit, which debuted at Mobile World Congress just weeks ago, the http://www.sbwire.com/press-releases/p90x3-reviews/sbwire-455028.htm S Band doesn’t have a screen.

You can choose to wear the tracker as a clip or in a wristband p90X3 results in various colors including white, yellow, black and orange.

New apps, digital fitness devices keep track of your workout

This free iPhone app from Puma helps track your workout, crunching the data into an overall score. The app also helps you figure out conditions that affect your workout, and the scoring system can be motivating.

(The conventional wisdom is that running in the same shoes beyond 400 or 500 miles can lead to injuries from shoe wear, so knowing the mileage on them is a good idea). Bluetooth-enabled, Milestone stores 20 hours of data covering mileage, pace, cadence, distance, number of runs, steps per minutes and time, which can be loaded onto your computer via USB. Week and month views let you track long-term trends. Also, you can input your blood type and medical data, which is useful for emergency responders.
