We are very thankful to our technology which has made everything easy for us by creating different sensors, apps etc. We are going to discuss use of fitness apps for healthy activities to lose weight and live a healthier life. We can track and record each and everything in our smart phones. When we are using these tools they are showing us the estimates which are not 100 percent accurate but these estimates are much better than manual assumptions. And if we know something, then it is much better than knowing nothing. But we must not completely rely on these tools.
