Fitness trackers apparently useless in improving chances of losing weight, research suggests

According to a research the activity device you wear to count the steps taken by you apparently doesn’t enhance the odds of shedding weight.

Published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the two-year long study included roughly 500 overweight volunteers, who were being asked to go on diet and do more exercise.

Nearly 50% of them were provided with a fitness tracker to help them keep a check. The group including such participants had shed less weight in comparison to the other one by the trial’s end.
