More than one in five Americans owns a wearable fitness tracker, such as a FitBit or Apple Watch, and at least one in 10 wears the tracker every day.

Dr. Paul Rachal, family practice physician with Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group New Roads, says they can.
"These devices can help you to improve your health because they help you stay focused on your goals, and track your progress," said Dr. Rachal. "It’s important to remember that fitness is not one-size-fits-all, though."
