It’s almost time to ring in the new year and for many, that means making resolutions.
According to Offers.com, losing weight and exercising more are the top new year’s resolutions year after year.
“Plenty of gadgets help you stick to New Year’s resolutions. Fitbit is great in terms of being able to challenge other people to meet your fitness goal,” says Suzanna Kantra of Techlicious.
This year, Fitbit has two new models: Charge 3 and Versa. Both models track steps, heart rate, calorie burn and even sleep, but they’re also essentially smartwatches with the ability to get apps, alerts and even make payments.
Apps such as Nerdwallet, Acorns and Mint will help budget and track spending for money-saving goals.
“Goals change every year. One thing I like working with apps, is your data is saved and you can keep using it year after year,” says Megan Gorman of Chequers Financial Management.
There are even apps that will monitor screen time for people trying to use their devices less. Screen Time on iOS and Digital Well Being on Andriod are built-in ways to track screen time and set goals.
It’s also a good time to do an annual check-in by updating software, resetting passwords, and getting your free credit report.
