I have just started using an apple watch, and am finding that it's "activity rings" feature encourages me to:
- perform more than 30 minutes of exercise a day (green 'exercise' ring);
- move around throughout the day to reach a certain calorific value (red 'move' ring);
- stand and move around for one minute every hour (blue 'stand' ring);
- the "breathe" app asks me to take deep breaths for about a minute every 4 hours.
Before giving it so much credence, I was wondering if there was any known scientific basis or consensus for health benefits from doing those things?
Or should I put it in the same category as the folklore about drinking bottled water instead of city water; putting soy milk instead of regular milk in my latte; eating British beef, and re-arranging my furniture to ensure prosperity...
Thanks in advance
