The American company responsible for the Fitbit wearable fitness accessories recently did a study which has revealed that Pakistani men put in the least amount of time and effort into exercising.
The American company compiled the study using 150 billion hours logged by its users around the world. The study used collected heart-rate data as the research basis.
Anyone wearing the Fitbit accessory gets to record measurable data such as the number of steps walked, steps climbed, heart rate, sleep, and other metrics that are commonly involved in fitness.
Fitbit shared a graph in which average resting heart rate was revealed and Pakistani users had the least activity recorded with a high resting heart rate.
Why Fitbit data isn’t perfect
Although it is alarming to see Pakistanis on the top of the chart when it comes to least active, Fitbit data can’t be considered an accurate picture of how much active Pakistanis are.
First of all, the Fitbit study relied on data collected from their wearable fitness gadget which is an expensive accessory in Pakistan. Hence a lot of people, especially the youth do not own one.
The alarming bit, however, is that the ones who do own the fitness accessory, still fail to put in enough time for their fitness activities.
