Bloggers Take on Zombies Using Smart Tech



In celebration of Halloween, we invited fifteen daring fitness bloggers to test out the latest smart tech whilst running for their lives.

In celebration of Halloween, we invited fifteen daring fitness bloggers to test out the latest smart tech whilst running for their lives.

On a rainy, inconspicuous Saturday morning, the bloggers took part in "Apocalypse Allianz Park", road testing some of the best wearable technology on the market: the JAWBONE UP24 Activity Tracker, GARMIN vívofit Fitness Band and the WITHINGS Pulse O2 Activity Tracker.

Given the opportunity to track their heart rate, steps taken and distance travelled, who would be smartest - the bloggers or the undead?

"Craigy Boy and I, the Ginger Warrior, had freakishly good fun kicking some Zombie butt!  We'll be back next year to face the living dead once more! In short, We didn't like it.  We LOVED it!". - Ceri from the Ginger Warrior

" I've never had so much fun but been so terrified at the same time! My legs have been killing me since - but maybe that's because I got infected!" - Erin from Island Bell.

Of course, there was little risk of the world actually being taken over by Zombies this time, but being able to see how fast they moved and how long they took to escape means that if the bloggers ever encounter a real zombie scenario, they'll know what they need to improve on!
