Turn Your Smartphone into an Accurate Walking and Fitness Device

Turn Your Smartphone into an Accurate Walking and Fitness Device

We welcome this guest post from Chel Aisha, thank you for this great contribution to our blog...

The capabilities of smartphones are steadily growing. Before the turn of the century, most handsets performed only the most basic of functions – calling, sending sms and emails, as well as a bit of GPS and WAP features. Today, however, smartphones can take high resolution photos and videos, play HD TV shows and movies, transfer money, create office files, and more. Some even have fingerprint sensors, as well as waterproof and dustproof ratings. Due to the convenience and assistance these gadgets bring, they are now used in a wide range of activities, whether professional or personal. In this article, the use of a smartphone for one personal activity that’s important to everyone will be discussed: exercise.

Why walking and camping holidays are becoming more popular

Why walking and camping holidays are becoming more popular

If you’re a regular visitor to iFootpath then it goes without saying that we built this website because we have a passion for walking and hiking across the UK. But over the last couple of years, the willingness to increase participation in walking as a form of exercise has also been under the spotlight, what with the increase rate of obesity in the UK.

The current economic struggles has also caused many families to tighten their expenses and look for less extravagant holiday options as well as hobbies that the family can do at a small cost. Walking or hiking obviously gives families time to bond while also taking in the sites of the countryside. Yes, the UK may not have the vast forestry of North America but there is a plethora of beatific spots across the UK that should be considered when planning your next camping trip. All of which you can look at more extensively in our browse walks section of the website.
