Digital watches that track your fitness level and steps found to be bogus? Studies are coming out showing these wrist watches are not actually tracking your activities correctly. Folks are seeing data be lowered as the unit does not match everyone's movement as the product was designed. Colleges and schools are looking into these devices and posting the finding causing a stir.

So should you move away from the trend and stick with weighing in on a scale every week? If you can track your weight weekly and target a loss of 1-2lbs you are on track of what most people will achieve. Some may see a larger amount if they combine exercise and changing eating habits. Either way a slow movement in your weight is a more long term effect solution. Quick losses can trick your system and then the return can be faster and larger in pounds. Mix up your exercise so that you also gain lean muscle mass. Break out the DVDs and stream a variety of workouts from yoga, step and unconventional mixed fitness systems.
