Fitness gadgets have been around for quite some time, the concept is simple, if you are into healthier habits, and need a companion to help you with your fitness journey, a fitness tracker is a great wrist-worn device that tracks your movement and other statistics throughout the day.

Every year, people call Xiaomi Smart Band 5 the “best affordable fitness tracker”, this fitness tracker enables you to monitor your heart rate, track menstrual cycle, sleep tracking, and it has a 20% larger AMOLED display at 1.1 inches and it can last 14 days on a single charge.

Like any other space, there are several types of impurities that can build up in a home gym. There are contaminants that are unique to spaces with gym equipment in them, such as toxins given off by some rubber and foam gym mats and the fillers used in rubber or vinyl weights. These impurities are bad enough on their own, but the exercise you do in your home gym makes them more dangerous. When you do an intensive workout, you will begin to inhale more air in order to deliver the necessary amount of oxygen to your muscles. As a result, you’ll breathe in more of whatever contaminants or impurities happen to be in the air around you. This increase in respiration is why it’s so important to have clean air in your home gym.

With the Philips 2000 Series Air Purifier, there are three purification modes, general for everyday freshness. An allergen mode that goes harder on pollen, dust, and smaller particles overall and a third mode that gets rid of the air of some bacteria and viruses. It is effective for a room with a size up to 79m², the machine is quiet, even when working on the highest fan speed. Your home gym provides you with a convenient and comfortable place in which to improve your health through exercise. If you want the space itself to be as healthy as possible, you can get it for the price of SGD 339 / MYR 1139, should you be considering using an air purifier in your home gym.
