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.
