The road to fitness is one that is driven by desire, devotion, and a lot of passion. Take it from Colleen Augustin, a vegan MMA fighter and flag football youth coach, who maintains a healthy lifestyle with the latest Samsung Galaxy Watch5.
“The new Samsung Galaxy Watch5 is ideal for me as I can check if I am getting the right amount of recovery for my training sessions and I keep track of my physique progress with the smartwatch, which is very convenient,” Colleen shared. She also finds it especially fascinating that the watch does not slip off her wrist in the middle of extreme activities.
The Galaxy Watch5 Series is innovated to enable users to follow holistic health practices. Through a single chip, the watch combines powerful health sensors, including the cutting-edge Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) sensor, and Optical Heart Rate (HR) sensor, enabling users to monitor their Body Composition, heart rate patterns, and blood oxygen level, and gain a deeper understanding of their overall health and fitness. According to Colleen, she was taken aback by how quickly and precisely her portable analytical device could assess her body with key measurements like skeletal muscle mass, basal metabolic rate, body water, and body fat percentage.
As an MMA fighter, she needs to continuously improve her power, strength, stamina, thus heart rate monitoring is one of the metrics she focuses on the most. Thanks to the Galaxy Watch5’s over 90 unique workout modes that track and report insightful workout analysis, including workout duration, calories burned, heart rate zones, and sweat loss, Colleen can easily keep track and evaluate her performance to work out how she can improve and achieve her ideal body stats.
When asked to share tips to stay healthy as a vegan, Colleen said, “Be aware of what you put into your body. Not everything vegan is healthy especially if it’s processed. Find ways to make it easy and affordable for you to stay fit and healthy. If you’re a busy person and have no time to cook, find a way where you can eat affordable nutritious meal on a daily basis.”
“Although being a vegan is a lifestyle decision, it has truly benefited me with my athletic performance, as well as how I feel mentally and physically,” she added. Despite Colleen’s tight schedule, she is able to input her daily meals on her Galaxy Watch5, which convenient her journey to her health goals.
Touching on health goals, Colleen revealed how the Samsung Health app has helped her in tracking and managing her nutrition intake. “With Samsung Health, I can record the calories or nutrition I have in every meal through my watch. This feature helps me to strictly monitor what I have eaten,” she said. “I think that the Nutrition Intake Monitoring makes it easier for people to track their meals without much hassle, especially for those who are extremely busy,” she added enthusiastically.
Having good sleep is crucial for health and well-being. Another favourite feature of Colleen’s, which surprises her at how beneficial it is, is the sleep tracking technology. Colleen dislikes sacrificing her beauty sleep and consistently strives to gain sufficient rest. “My sleep quality is everywhere at times due to the hours of sleep. I might be sleeping seven hours, but due to the previous day’s lack of sleep, it might affect my sleep cycle,” she shared.
Colleen added “The Galaxy Watch5’s Sleep Coaching Program tracks my sleep stages and matches them to a unique Sleep Animal. According to Samsung Health app, my sleep patterns are identical to a Nervous Penguin, which indicates that I frequently have difficulty falling or staying asleep. Thanks to the analysis, I’m currently undertaking the app’s personalised, advanced Sleep Coaching Program to gradually improve my sleep quality and habits.”
To Colleen, the Galaxy Watch5 is the ideal fusion of practicality, toughness, and design that gives users the capacity to take control of daily routines and improve every fitness endeavour. So start your wellness journey with the Galaxy Watch5 Series now as the New Year approaches.
