Wearables – Do You Track Your Steps, Workouts, Sleep Patterns and More?

Some people are not participating in the current wearables epidemic. Others are certain that this is only the tip of the iceberg and there are way more products to come in terms of wearables technology. Different kinds of products to wear and more that they can track.

The Apple Watch has been getting a lot of attention as it has been rolled out and covered by the media extensively. There are a number of other wearables which are not watches exactly yet, they track many aspects of the life of the person who is wearing them.

Some of the more popular are

These are just a handful of the bands you can wear. There are also a number of shirts which contain the wiring within their material to track you as well. The majority of these devices will download your information into a program you set up so you may track yourself over time as well. A recent article stated women under 50 absolutely love these wearables to track their steps, their calories burned and their sleep patterns.

As you may have suspected, this article is NOT about wearables. At least not these wearables. It is about Daily Productivity. How do you keep track of your Daily Productivity? A person who recently became one of my coaching clients shared her story about lost time on Facebook as she was exploring a quality coach to work with.

She would check email and Facebook the first thing every single morning and the next thing she knew three hours would be gone! Lost forever!

To my knowledge there is not a wearable to help you track what you should be working on and what you should not be working on. However, by working with a coach and designing a method of working which is highly productive and utilizes your time to the maximum, now that is a great start!

My new client is completing her first assignment from me right now as she maps out what she is doing each day for a full week. Every fifteen minutes! What did you do? Have you ever tried this out?

You might take a try and you will be amazed or shocked at what you learn about yourself.

  1. Mitch,

    Maybe you should invent the productivity monitor band? I don’t wear any of these but I do track my steps on my smart phone and strive to get my 10K a day in. As you know, it’s easy for busy entrepreneurs to get sucked into our work or play and let the day slip away without adequate movement.

    Write on!~


  2. I make a list of actions to do for the day, put an amount of time I plan to spend on each and set a timer. It keeps me on track, though sometimes I forget to schedule lunch breaks 🙂

  3. Mitch, first of all I simply use the step tracker on my iPhone since it is always with me. I do write down my steps every day and make sure I do at least 10,000. That said, I completely agree with the value and importance of measurement and goal setting. I am sympathetic to your client. I find Facebook to be a giant time suck if you are not extremely well disciplined with it! Like Jessica I make a list for the day (always the night before.)

  4. I didn’t even realize that my iPhone would track my steps – but then I don’t have it always with me, either. To me productivity comes from focusing on the RIGHT things. And like Jessica, I like timers, too.
