Although a lot of what I love about fitness is that it boils down to nothing but you and your body, there’s no question that fitness and tech go hand in hand. Many of us who are fitness fanatics often tend to be quite competitive, and I love that the new tech-focused fitness products that are currently out on the market not only help track your performance and progress, but can help you become a healthier person and a better athlete too.
Last week in Toronto I had the opportunity to visit Best Buy Canada’s second annual Life & Tech Expo at Dundas Square. Myself and some fellow bloggers were introduced to some of the newest and most innovative tech products available at Best Buy Canada that can help you integrate technology to enhance your everyday life.
