Eight Gadgets That Help You Lose Weight
By: Robert P.
5. The EnterTrainer
The EnterTrainer turns your TV into a fitness trainer. If you're not exercising hard enough, the TV volume goes down. And if you don't get back on track, the TV turns off until you do. The EnterTrainer can be used with a treadmill, stationary bicyle, rowing machine, or any type of fitness activity. The only thing you have to do is wearing a wireless heartrate monitor.

6. Nike + iPod
The Nike+iPod Sports Kit is a device which measures and records the distance and pace of a walk or run. The Nike+iPod consists of a small accelerometer (a device for measuring acceleration) attached to or embedded in a shoe, which communicates with either the Nike+ Sportband or a receiver plugged into an iPod nano. If using the iPod, iTunes software can be used to view the walk or run history.
