Tracker from Geron Alexandria
The basis of any fitness tracker is a pedometer. The history of this device goes deep into history. The first inventor is Geron of Alexandria, who lived in the first century BC.But the account of the steps in antiquity was conducted not for fitness, but for determining distances.
Alexander of Macedon had a staff of pedometer people who allowed him to measure his empire. To facilitate this work and refine the data and tried the mechanics of antiquity. In the Middle Ages, the device did not lose its relevance and the great Leonardo da Vinci created his own version.
's new look With the development of science, the need to measure the ground by steps has disappeared and the device seemed to have lost its place. However, from non-existence he was drawn by the third US president Thomas Jefferson. He became interested in the device and even came up with his own design.
His interest was completely different, it was those who opened the pedometer to the wide road to the fitness president wanted to know how much he walks. The attention of such a public person has provided pedometers with great popularity on the threshold of new times( 1).

A simple example - during my career I have never met the New Year, because I always went to the regime before midnight. There is a special preparation, but there is a general one, which should lead you to having what to produce higher results. We liked this idea in the bracelet. The idea of an inconspicuous, but constant self-organization. The way it is implemented here is quite suitable for an ordinary person. If you are not going to participate in the Olympic Games, then you can set yourself the task of maintaining form and tone. This is a tool and it is completely in your hands »
