Form and function. Two once mutually exclusive worlds are now becoming increasingly blurred -- thanks to brands that are constantly striving to redefine sartorial rules. But when it comes to leading an active lifestyle, we get it: it’s not easy trying to strike a balance between keeping active and maintaining your personal style.
What if we tell you that you can now own a fitness gear that looks exactly like a fashion accessory? Something that you can actually wear straight from the treadmill to the sidewalk, from the swimming pool to that beach party? It’s hard to believe, but with the Fitbit Flex 2, keeping active in style is no longer an issue.
The Fitbit Flex 2 is more than just a fitness tracker. It not only features an all-day activity tracking, SmartTrack, and auto sleep tracking functions, it also sends you call and text notifications to keep you alert. The Flex 2 even doubles up as your fancy workout buddy by sending you reminders to stay active throughout the day.
On the aesthetics front? It boasts the slimmest wristband yet, and is available in three interchangeable accessories: bands, bangles, and pendants (yes, pendants!). To help us prove that point, we talk to two style and fitness trailblazers -- one classy with an edge, the other sporty chic -- about keeping active in style.
How do you stay active amidst your busy schedule?
“I walk around a lot because of my work -- in-between my modelling photo shoots and real estate job appointments -- and I always try to squeeze in a workout every now and then. Ideally I’d like to workout five times a week. But because of my current hectic schedule, I squeeze in a workout three times a week. When I commute, wherever possible, I walk instead of say, take a bus, to stay active throughout the day.”

“It’s all down to the right pieces and the right fabric materials. You’d want something that is breathable but still look good. Simply dress according to your style and mood, and where you’re going that day.”
