Armitron Fitness Watch Review And Giveaway

I got a chance to sample a fitness watch by Armitron from Kohl's. I haven't worn a watch in years and to be honest I didn't feel a need to wear one because I usually use my smartphone.  I also use my smartphone when I train clients and teach my classes. This practice has gotten me in trouble a couple of times when I left my phone behind on park benches.

Last week, I decided to put away the phone and use the watch when I taught my small group fitness training clients. I loved it because it a little more practical and easier to keep up with, without losing it. When using my smartphone, the auto lock comes on after a minute and it can be annoying when teaching. I used my pink Armitron watch and it was easier doing the split timing using this watch. It helped me run the class because the class flowed and ran much smoother.

I also used the watch when I biked outdoors. I'm old fashion and I take my heart rate manually, hell, I have been doing it over 30 years now. I don't need a heart rate monitor or a fancy gadget to monitor my target heart rate.

I definitely recommend you check out the Armitron fitness watches from Kohl's. They aren't expensive and it is a great watch especially if you like something simple. Lovers of outdoor activities or fitness professionals should also check them out.

What Is The Best Activewear For An Inverted Triangle Body Shape


I thought I was a ruler until I really looked in the mirror and figured out that I'm an inverted triangle. I have broad shoulders with long arms, long legs and small sized breasts. Since I'm not a fashionista, I needed help on what fitness clothes to buy for my shape so I had to some research.

What are the attributes of inverted triangle or cornet shape? Inverted triangles have broad shoulders, small breasts, no waist or a slight waist, slim hips, and long slim legs.

Leggings and Fitness Pants

To create the illusion of hips, you should choose pants that light contrast stripes on the side, pants with side pockets, or pants with bright colors or patterns.

Fitness Tops

Keep your tops simple and choose ones that create an illusion of a waist.  Choose thicker straps, they  will take away emphasis from your shoulders.  If your stomach is flat you can wear simple tops that show off your great abdominals.


Choose an outfit with patterns, belts or ruffles at the bottom of the swimsuit. If you are only interested in a bikini, look for bottoms with tassels or side ties. For more information on what swimsuit to wear for an inverted triangle, check out A Designer In Fashion's article, The Best Bikini For An Inverted Triangle Shape.

Do you dress for your body shape? Are you a fashionista who knows what looks great on you?
