I recently had a running assessment done and one of the things that we talked about was the amount of time I sit at work. I thought I was at least 40/60 with walking and sitting at my desk or in meetings. As it turns out, with one week of wearing the Orbit to work, I sit at my desk or in meetings a whole lot more than I walk. The impact of more sitting than not throughout the day was surprising and even more surprising was the impact on running form and alignment.
A sample of what the Runtastic Orbit can do:
STEPS: You can set a daily “step” goal and when you hit the 50% mark it will vibrate and again when you hit your goal 100%. On this day I exceeded my step goal. This was, in part, due to an early morning run around 5:30.
SLEEP: One of the coolest and most unique features is the sleep tracker. I’m a little embarrassed and a lot concerned about my 76% sleep efficiency. As you can see by the red I was up past my bedtime and started to wake up around my usual 4:00 a.m. I woke up 3 times during the night with the second time being the longest. On the graph, the red indicates “awake,” the yellow is “light sleep” and the green is “deep sleep.” My sleep efficiency hovered around 75% throughout the week.

I have since started walking everyday at work during part of my lunch break.
More movement and less sitting!
Now, I need to work on more restful sleep and a higher sleep efficiency.
The Runtastic Orbit is available for $119.99 which is comparable to most wearables on the market and includes 2 color band options (black and blue) along with an easy-to-use USB. Additional color options for the wristband are sold separately: orange/yellow/red and green/white/steel.
What do you think your sleep efficiency would be? A lot of red or more green?
With a 24-hour wearable what would you track most often? Steps? Sleep? Calories? All of the above?
