Sometimes it seems like there’s insufficient time in the day to enter a fitness workout so on those days, I have to remind myself that something is preferable to nothing. There’s always time, no matter how active you and I are, to squeeze in a few maximum effort isometric contractions.
Maybe one minute is all I have. That provides me the required time to perform 5 sets of the maximum-effort isometric contraction. The next circa-2007 vintage video originates from the huge archives of Pierini Fitness and demonstrates a maximum-effort pectoral isometric contraction. While this one works your pectoral muscles, it will work your whole body if done properly also.
Integrates with smart home via IFTTT and Alexa suitable. Sometimes, errors relaxing in bed as sleep. Doesn’t always record bed exits if they don’t last long. Hard to start to see the exact times that resting stages happened on the graphs, and requires careful tapping on the graph to talk about more data.
I experienced high anticipations from a rest tracker that was developed in partnership with Nokia. The features it includes sounded promising, and I had been expecting the accuracy would be a noticable difference on similar under mattress trackers. After using it for 2 weeks and comparing the data with my very own notes, however, there have been more inaccuracies than I had been hoping for. All trackers have a hard time distinguishing between sleep and quiet relaxation time, and the Withings seemed to struggle with this as much as the Emfit QS really.
It was very good on the evenings when I tried to sleep straight away, and when I acquired up as soon as I woke. But for more difficult nights, with multiple wakings, the accuracy was questionable. Where it does win over me was with some of the sleep training App functions.
I liked the public jet lag program and think that’s a genuinely useful feature. I also liked the clean user interface, even if the graphs are a little fiddly to dissect. One final positive is that I only snored once within the last 2 weeks apparently, which may very well be accurate from what I know about my silent sleeping. So I’m sure people with a serious snoring problem will be thinking about this feature.
I’d be skeptical that this was possible if it weren’t for the fact that RedMed is a well-known rest technology company which makes sleep apnea devices. Where it shines is in gathering a wealth of information about what you did throughout the day, bedroom environment and sleep, and combining all the data to give you customized sleep tips then.

And the quantity of data it provides every morning is interesting, with rest graphs filled with useful information. However, I came across it a bit strike or miss for even the basic sleep tracking points that I possibly could confirm myself, such as the right time I woke up or escape bed, and if I was reading or asleep. Which doesn’t bode so well for the more complex sleep stage tracking. Detailed tracking of light, deep and REM sleep wakings and levels. Compares your rest score against the common for your gender and age. Measures light, temperature, and sound in the bedroom.
A nightly questionnaire about factors like alcoholic beverages, caffeine, activity, and stress levels helps correlate your daily behavior with your rest. Encourages you to leave a text or tone of voice memo to clear your relax and mind before sleeping. Synchronizes with your breathing to try out relaxing sounds through your phone. Smart alarm wakes you lightly throughout a light stage of rest.
