Do You Use Technology For Exercise & Weight Loss? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week, following the much anticipated Apple event, we asked you what was your favorite release from that event. All in all, not many people voted, and out of those who did, a significant amount said they don’t care. Does this mean MakeUseOf readers don’t really care for Apple?

Out of 172 votes in total, 24% liked the iPhone 5 best, 15% preferred the new iPod Touch, 11% voted for iOS 6 (perhaps before the notorious Maps issue came to light?), 5% liked the new iPod Nano, another 5% voted for iTunes 11, 3% voted for something that wasn’t included in the list, and a full 37%, the majority of the voters, really don’t care about what Apple releases.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

The general disinterest in Apple aside, it seems that a surprising number of people are excited about the new iPod Touch. You can read more about what people think in last week’s comments.

Only a few years ago, exercise and weight loss had little to do with technology and gadgets. You ate right, you went out for a jog or a bike ride, or hit the gym for some weight-lifting. Today, there are a huge amount of web apps, mobile apps and online services that offer help with weight loss, ways to track the amount of exercise you put it, and even ways to share and compete against other users for extra motivation. Did you find an exercise companion in this volley of new services, or do you still go the old fashioned way? Or maybe you don’t watch your weight at all?

Tell us in the comments which app you like the best, and what makes it the best companion for you. If you don’t use an app, what do you use? And why?
