COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - It's now a daily accomplishment you celebrate along with millions of other people who track their activity with a wearable fitness tracker.

Fitness trackers come in a variety of options and they all start with the amount of movement the user is doing.

The drawback of the device is that it is used as a crutch and not a way to properly exercise.

However, the heart rate tracker is a big bonus for this device. 

According to Columbus Regional’s Dayton Preston you don’t always need a gadget to tell if you're healthy because we need to listen to our bodies and respond appropriately.   

The good part about the fitness trackers is that it does help get people off the couch and moving around more.
