Guys! You know how much I love ALDI! I basically share about it weekly on my FB page. Alex makes fun of me because I go there (almost) every single day. I’m not kidding. I live about 2 minutes from our ALDI and I stop there before I go home from work to grab whatever veggies we will need for our meal that night. So needless to say, I feel that I know the ins and outs of the store & always notice if there are new products!
THIS product is one that I am SOOOO excited about! I know most people think about saving money on food at ALDI, but I have noticed so many other great things at the store I shop at. There are always great healthy living products if you just look! The “Special Buy” items are my favorite and are available for a limited time only! And the reason I am writing this blog is no different. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!
One of the top 5 questions I get about healthy living is what activity tracking device I use. I have used so many different ones throughout the years. Some I have loved, some I haven’t. And I’ve been pretty vocal about the ones I love & ones I don’t. Well, on May 6th, ALDI will now have a brand new Bluetooth activity tracker, heart rate monitor, and diagnostic scale as Special Buy items! YES! AT ALDI!!! And you know ALDI is known for its wonderful prices, & this is no different! You get all 3 Bluetooth items (each sold separately) for only $104.97. The activity tracker alone would be that with any other brand.
ALDI sent these products to me to test out & share with you all whether I loved it or not. I have been using this product for the past week & I must be honest with you…it is one of the best devices I have used! It is a Crane product & it has its own app just like other brands & it is so easy to use! I love that it all connects right to my phone, which is something that is important to me especially when I’m on the go (and I usually am). You can also wear it as a watch or clip it on if you don’t like the watch look. The armband I got came with both a black armband AND an aqua armband (duh)! I love it!!!
The activity tracker tracks daily steps, distance, calorie deficit, & also has a sleep tracker. You can set up to 3 alarms on it for anything you might need as well. The battery lasts up to 7 days & you can easily charge it with a USB port that is included. If you want to wear the heart rate belt, you have that option too as it comes with the activity tracker. You can track your heart rate, training zones, duration of activity, distance covered, speed, and it even has GPS tracking. I use mine during workouts and absolutely love it. I think heart rate is so important when you are training.
Last but not least, the third part of this special buy is the diagnostic scale. I have to tell you, I am very particular when it comes to the scale I use. I have used the same scale for the past 5 years and I don’t like change very much so I was skeptical! But this scale is AWESOME!!! And I have never said that about a scale before. Just saying. It measures your progress with not only weight, but fat percentage, water percentage, muscle percentage, bone mass, body mass index, basal metabolic rate (calories burned while inactive), and active metabolic rate (calories burned while awake). It weighs up to 396 pounds as well, just as an FYI!
SOOOO…as an exciting extra to all of this, ALDI has graciously agreed to give away one prize pack of these Special Buy items to one of YOU!!!!! All you have to do is leave a comment below as to why YOU want/need one of these! And then just SHARE this blog post on Facebook with all of your friends so they can come try to win a prize pack too! We must be able to see the share! It’s very simple & well worth it! The winner will be chosen on May 8, 2015.
If you go buy one of these bad boys, PLEASE tag me in the pictures! I would love to see you all using/wearing the same thing as I am to keep us accountable!
Good luck on the giveaway!!!!
