Top Fitness Accessories For iPhone 6

fitbanner

The iPhone has become a multifunctional computer that can be used in a zillion ways. The fact that it fits in your pocket is a part of what makes iPhones and smartphones so versatile and useful. One of the most popular uses of this portable super computer is health and fitness tracking. Apple realized this a few years ago and has since been aiding in developing technologies further for even better tracking of health and fitness data. Nowadays, one can combine the iPhone with a myriad number of accessories together to create a holistic view of all that data so you can continue to improve in any area you want. DailyAppShow has selected a few of the most useful and high quality iPhone compatible health and fitness accessories below:

 



FitBit Flex

The Fitbit Flex fits a lot of cool tech in a minuscule package. This wrist-mounted bluetooth enabled device keeps track of step count and movement with a nifty 5 LED screen that shows you how far you’ve gotten to your step count. With Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, the Flex keeps going for up to five days. Once you sync with the FitBit app on your iPhone, you can see stats like your step count by day, week, and month, how long you’ve been active, and more. The Flex even has a sleep tracking mode, so that you can track and optimize how well you sleep, and you can set a vibration alarm so that you’re gently woken up. I wear the FitBit Flex everyday, and it works like a charm.



Withings Scale

withings

Having a scale is one thing, but having a digital wifi and bluetooth scale that keeps track of your weight, body fat percentage, and even the air quality in your home is a wholly different thing. The Withings Scale does all that and more. With a handsome design that will fit in with any decor, the Withings Scale automatically syncs all it’s data to your phone via bluetooth and wifi, so you will always be able to keep a close eye on your fitness goals.



Belkin Slim-Fit Plus Armband

Few things are more annoying than an iPhone waving around in your pocket while you’re running or cycling. That’s why you need a way to keep your iPhone safe and secure when you’re out getting sweaty. Belkin provides just this functionality in their Slim-Fit Plus armband. Slip your iPhone 6 into the armband, strap it to your arm and you’ll be good to go. The comfortable band will fit practically any arm (Mr. Universe competitors might have to look elsewhere though), and the cord keeper is perfect for tucking in your extra headphone wire.



JayBird BlueBuds Bluetooth Headphones

If you are like me and you love listening to music (and a virtual coach) while running, but hate that wire flapping all over and getting caught in stuff, JayBird’s BlueBuds are a solution to our problems. These bluetooth headphones have a surprisingly small form factor that keeps you looking like a dork, secure fit cushions that keep these buds in your ears, a custom Bluetooth codec for high quality audio that doesn’t lose connection, and even a lifetime warranty against sweat.

The past few years have seen massive improvements to micro-sized cameras used in smartphones and tablets, causing point-and-shoot cameras to begin going the way of the dodo bird. Not that that’s a bad thing: the latest crop of high end mobile cameras have proven to be more than adequate everyday shooters for millions of people. The fact that the iPhone is the most popular camera in the world is indication enough that smartphone photography has moved beyond a useful convenience to professional quality work good enough for commercial production. And the momentum of improvement does not appear to be slowing anytime soon.

With the advent of high quality cameras in more hands than ever, a cottage industry has arisen to help those who want to take their photography to the next level. DailyAppShow has gathered and reviewed the most effective and useful of those products. Read on for awesome smartphone accessories to bring you even closer to expert level photography.



Sony QX30

The Qx30 is a completely unique device that essentially attaches a high-quality lens to the back of your smartphone, and connects via NFC, Bluetooth, or Wifi. Once connected, your smartphone acts as the camera controls. Using your smartphone as the viewfinder, you adjust focus, exposure, shutter speed, and composition using touchscreen controls. On top of a great quality Sony lens, you also get up to 30x optical zoom and a built-in tripod mount. Feel free to stick the QX30 on top of a tripod  while holding the coupled smartphone or tablet to get the perfect shot. Combine the QX30 with one of the PlayMemories apps, and you can enable awesome camera modes like time lapse and stop-motion photography.



Gorillapod

If you’re at all serious about photography, you’ll need a tripod. One of the most versatile tripods today is the Gorillapod, with gooseneck legs that let you mount this tripod virtually anywhere.

Nova Wireless Flash

There is no getting over it: the flash on your phone sucks. The light is harsh and too close to the camera to be effective. Luckily there is a solution, and it works great. The Nova Wireless flash connects to your smartphone via bluetooth and provides clean, diffused light for your photos. The flash has 40 LEDs that are color temperature adjustable, charged with a USB cable, and is small enough to easily fit in your pocket. The Nova flash is a must for any serious portrait photography or lowlight scenes.



Glif

Glif

Studio Neat’s biggest claim to fame is the Glif, a slick little tripod mount that was originally for the iPhone 4 and 4S. The Glif now works with any smartphone and provides even more functionality. You simply slide your phone into the Glif and screw it onto any 1/4″ screw attachment (the standard for most tripods). Combine with the above Gorillapod and you have a kit that will enable stable mobile photography from practically anywhere.
