Fitness App of the Month: The Prettiest Fitness Bracelet
While we respect the FitBit for its health insights and its ability to motivate us, we have never seen the FitBit as an object of beauty. Enter the Mira bracelet.
The new fitness-tracking technology is designed and marketed solely for women (sorry, gentlemen). All the tech components fit inside a shiny black opal, so while Mira offers similar data as FitBit, it’s oh so much prettier to look at.
The bracelet comes in five colors—we opted for the gold, but were seriously tempted by the satin rosé—or you can clip the opal as a brooch.
Here’s how it works:
Tap your finger on top of the opal to check the time, or pinch the two sides to see daily results, including steps, calories, distance and elevation change. You can even use it to monitor your activity from exercises like spinning and yoga. We loved that it told when we had the most energy in the day (8:45am), and when it was time to sleep (11:30pm).
The mobile app was minimalist and easy to navigate, breaking down our activity results in a few polished graphics. It also sends little “boosts” when you need them: One click can reveal a motivational quotation or tip on maximizing a workout. Our favorite? “When life gives you lemons, use them to add zing to your water.”
Bracelets starting at $169.
Why The Mira is the Perfect NYC Travel Companion:
New York is not a tracksuit town, so you’ll want to feel fashionable while you’re staying fit. The Mira bracelet does both, so you can pack less.
The Mira bracelet pays attention to your energy levels all day so you’ll know when it’s time to hit the city streets and when it’s time for an afternoon snooze in the hotel room.
NYC is the forerunner for the best exercise classes and SoulCycle is only a block away. Make the most of your class while Mira Bracelet does the heavy lifting – your stats will be ready when you’re done!
There’s no reason to limit yourself when New York restaurants are some of the best in the world. Your dinner reservation is the only motivation you’ll need to ditch the cab and walk instead!
