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.

Do you like simple fitness gadgets or do you love high tech models? Enter to win his and hers Armitron fitness watches from Kohl's.

  3. I like both high teech and low tech things. Its a tough question to answer. I like the new firness trackers with multifunctions, but nothing beats a good old fashioned walk and all you need is walking shoes (and a dog!)
