Breezing: Track your metabolism

Every runner knows that loosing weight is a matter of creating a unbalance between the calories that enter your body and those that you burn. That is to say less calories entering, more calories burned and not the other way around.

That is why regular running helps you to stay fit and in shape. You increase your metabolism. In general toning your body to a better shape than any given coach potato.

Of course this rough approach can be more refined. Everyone using an heart rate monitor during running, or a GPS watch (see my post on five of them) or an app on the smart phone knows that these devices indicate your calories burned during you exercise.

Apparently this is not accurate enough for some geeks. Thats why they came up with 'Breezing'. A small device analysing your breath, communicating with your (Andriod) smart phone app to display your metabolism. Giving you detailed feedback so you can fine tune your exercise. It analyses your breath on oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production.

Is this more accurate than a heart rate monitor? Can be. Every trained runner knows that with improved fitness you can run a given speed at a lower heart rate because your body becomes more efficient in the transport of oxygen to your muscles and burning the fuel in your body and turning it into speed. I have to say I am a bit sceptical. Just go out, enjoy the run, use your common sense and eat healthy and your scale will tell you the resulting weight loss.

The video below explains a bit more on 'breezing' although I have to say it is more 'features' than 'benefits' or 'practical use';
