Claim:Tracking technologies help people to maintain and improve wellness.
Rob Portil used a tracking device called the Fit Bit to track the amount of calories he burned, and to track his quality of sleep. He was also able to track his weight and the calories that he was consuming by using the Fit Bit website and its I phone application. Rob Portil reached his goal of going from 166 to 155 pounds, and this gave him even more motivation to keep advancing, and improving his health even more. He stated that “tracking alone creates mindfulness.” http://quantifiedself.com/2012/01/rob-portil-on-weight-loss-and-muscle-gain-with-fitbit/
