Finding the ideal, best fitness and health gift these days is extremely difficult given our online environment. It could be overwhelming. You see thousands of Instagram, Facebook and Google ads every day. Thousands of products online and in store. Not only is there too much of a selection, but also who can you trust? Today, we’ll try to help you find the best fitness gift for health enthusiasts and really anyone trying to live a better, healthier life in 2021.
The health market is by far one of the fastest growing markets in the world today. From supplements, to vitamins, equipment and health gadgets. It can also be a very complex industry to understand. There is tons of misleading, fake information out there and every year these companies make millions (if not billions) from it.
One of the subcategories of the health market that is growing like crazy is fitness and health wearable technology. You can’t know what goes in to the “supplements” you buy, but you can visually see what happens to your body by using some of these wearable devices. We’ll discuss why the AIO Smart Sleeve is the best wearable technology device for virtually anyone.
Here are 10 reasons why the AIO Sleeve makes for the best fitness gift:
1. THE PERFECT FITNESS GIFT FOR MEN
we’ll get to all of the great features later, but it all starts with the design, fit and comfort. The AIO Smart Sleeve is a unique compression sleeve, with material made in house at the Komodo Technologies’ facility. The fabric is anywhere from 20% to 40% lighter than typical compression and workout clothes you see today.
The device is small, compact and fits inside the sleeve and doesn’t get in the way of your workout. smart watches and bracelets are extremely bulky. For some exercises, they are horrible! If you are performing any kind of lifts where you have to bend your wrist, the watch will be a nuisance.
With the AIO Sleeve, you barely even notice you’re wearing it. As for the analytics tracked during your workout; you will see your average BPM, max heart rate, activity intensity (known as MET), and SPO2 (blood oxygen saturation). You simply start your workout, press the START button the AIO Health App and forget about it. Everything will save in your phone and you’ll be able to track your progress easily on the app.
2. ALSO, THE BEST WORKOUT GIFT FOR HER
Some of the best workout gear for women is already very similar to compression clothing, so the adjustment to the AIO Sleeve won’t be difficult. Most workout clothes and leggings are made from lycra, polyester, rayon, and modal fabric. These are very similar to the fabric of the AIO Smart Sleeve.
The sleeve hugs the skin making for a pleasant workout experience. Whether you’re a pro or just starting out, the AIO Sleeve is made for you. The app home screen features simpler analytics for you to track your every day progress. Head over to the details for an in depth look at your heart rate variability, SPO2, and activity intensity. No matter what level, it’s an extremely easy app to navigate.
3. THE BEST TECH GIFT IN 2021
If you’re a tech lover, and interested in your health the AIO Sleeve is a slam dunk, home-run! We’ve been told that our new version of the AIO Sleeve makes you look like the Terminator, so if that doesn’t scream ‘futuristic, tech gadget’ I don’t know what will.
The true tech genius of this wearable comes from a biomarker called Heart Rate Variability (HRV). One of the only tools we have today that gives you a true insight into your overall health. It gauges your stress level, workout recovery, food sensitivities, bodies behavior in particular environments and so much more.
HRV was discovered decades ago by studying heart patterns of horses and cows. They realized that the beats varied. In other words, the heart is sporadic and not like a metronome. This ‘variability’ is actually a good thing.
Instead of getting people to study what HRV is, we’ve made it easy on the AIO Health App by showing users their ‘Health Score’ in just 2-minutes. The score is based on 5 stars.
4. TRACK YOUR SLEEP
Sleep monitoring seems to be one of the most important features among consumers. So we couldn’t make a best fitness gift list without including this. The AIO Health App has sleep tracking capabilities and separates sleep stages into 5 zones.
Whereas most people take off their watch at night because it’s uncomfortable, the soft AIO Sleeve fabric will fit seamlessly into your nightly ‘fit’. And if you don’t wear anything, the sleeve will still feel that way as well. It’s the best sleep analysis wearable out there.
5. MONITOR YOUR RECOVERY, IMPROVE ENERGY
Most people will feel sluggish during the day and not know why. When we say ‘recovery’ this doesn’t just mean workout recovery. Every single person on this planet needs to recover from something; whether it’s work, errands, stress, gym, you name it. This is where HRV comes in again.
Once you have figured out your baseline HRV, you’ll know when your HRV is low. If it’s low, depending on what’s going on that day, you may need some time to recover and reduce the stress running throughout your body. Some people meditate (which has been shown to increase HRV). No matter what your means of relaxation are, heart rate variability will show you exactly when you NEED to do it so you don’t exhaust yourself.
It doesn’t make you tough pushing your body when it just can’t go anymore, that makes you silly. Knowing exactly when to recharge your battery will allow you to push yourself more optimally in the days and weeks to come.
6. NO HIDDEN (OR ANY) FEES
Not only do people not like hidden fees, no one like ANY FEES AT ALL. It’s simply something people have made peace with, there’s monthly fees for everything. This is not how things should be. It’s not fair to the consumer.
At Komodo, we believe in a one-time purchase, and in the future, you will be able to pay monthly for additional features. While the AIO Sleeve and all of the features our customers love doesn’t include monthly fees. Unlike Whoop, we care more about the betterment of people’s health than charging monthly fees.
7. IT WILL NEVER GET OLD (AND LEFT TO DIE IN YOUR DROOR)
You probably have a drawer (or an entire basement) of old crap you bought and only used once. With the AIO Sleeve, that shouldn’t be an issue.
Our bodies are more complex than anything in this world. They change every day, week, month, and year. What you used to be able to do and eat 5 years ago, you probably can’t today. Monitoring your heart rate variability is not only important but also fascinating.
People often don’t know what’s happening internally, with their heart, brain, digestion system, lungs, etc. They get diagnosed with horrible conditions ‘out of nowhere’. But with HRV you can see trends. It’s one of few preventative measures we have today and is available for purchase. Studies show that HRV can be an accurate predictor potential heart failure, sudden cardiac death, and even cancer.
8. BEST KITCHEN GIFT
Kitchen gift? How? This topic actually came courtesy of a YouTube comment from one of our latest videos.
It’s a great question, because it almost seems too good to be true, right? Heart rate variability can detect many different forms of stress that occur in your body. One of those stresses is digestion. When you eat, you are putting your body under stress. Digestion is a process that takes energy. Now depending on what you eat, that process can be exhausting for your body.
Not all ‘healthy’ foods are made the same. It could be good for someone and be bad for you. By knowing your HRV baseline, measure before and after you eat a certain meal. Given how HRV decreases and how fast you recover from this meal, you will know your sensitivity to that particular food group.
9. BEST GIFT FOR WELLNESS AND YOGA LOVERS
Not only is yoga a great workout for your physical fitness, but it’s also good for your mental fitness. Practicing mindfulness and meditation is very important and makes you feel better. With HRV, you can see a visual representation of how well you feel.
With the AIO Sleeve, we ask our users to perform this exercise to illustrate how HRV works; record your HRV throughout the day. If you hit a point in the day where your under very high stress (low HRV), take another HRV test and perform deep breathing through you diaphragm.
Diaphragmatic breathing is known to reduce stress (in the short-term) and increase HRV. It’s a quick fix but will get you moving along with your day.
10. BEST FITNESS GIFT, PERFECT GIFT FOR ALL GYM LOVERS
Now to cap things off, what really makes the AIO Smart Sleeve the best fitness gift? Do you ever wonder why you like smart watches and bracelets? Do you actually like them or is it because the big brands have forced you to?
They have made you forgo the classic, beautiful looking watch for a lesser one. They have convinced people that this is the future. However, nothing beats a classic watch. No one wears watches and accessories to the gym. So if you’re talking about the best fitness wearable, Fitbit and Apple just aren’t it.
The AIO Sleeve fits seamlessly into your workout attire, provides more in-depth analytics than any other wearable device, and does it in a human readable format on the AIO Health App. With over 250,000 users of the AIO Smart Sleeve, you can’t go wrong.
