I was recently invited along to the #curryschristmaswalk where fellow press people embarked on an educating walk around central London and had the chance to try out different fitness bands that Currys currently stock. On my arrival I was given the Jawbone up 24 to try out and once I download the app, I was ready to roll. On our little walk we started at Hatchards, one of the oldest bookshop in London. It was lovely to have a look around the tall store and with so many steps and different sections, I really did clock up some steps on this first visit. After seeing Paddington bear and taking some snaps, we headed to James J Fox, one of the oldest cigar shops in London. It was a store that Winston Churchill used to order his cigars from and it was nice to see his own chair in the shop as well as some historic papers and how often he ordered. As well as popping to these amazing shops, we also walked around Piccadilly and Pall Mall(where I used to have an office for Carrot top PR) and I loved seeing all these magical places and the history they contained! It was great to see how the Jawbone band was working and since this walk, I have taken it on some long runs too! You can see (below) how detailed the log can be and it is great to see how many steps you take and calories you burn simply by popping down to the shops.
If you haven’t tried a fitness band yet, Jawbone is definitely one well worth trying and it great for monitoring walks, runs and even your sleep too!
