This is going to be a quickie… I just wanted to share a fun new use for the Amazon Echo Dot that I discovered yesterday. Easy workout timers! What’s that? If you workout and need to do timed exercises, it’s a pain to use a stopwatch. In the past, I’ve either tried to count in my head which isn’t very accurate, or I’ve used my phone’s clock app to count down the time. Getting the phone where I can see it while trying to hold the exercise position can be a pain (literally). Yesterday I started working out again after a 2.5-week layoff due to my back going out (ouch!). I’m trying to focus more on core strength and wanted to do some plank exercises. It suddenly occurred to me that I could just ask Alexa to set a timer for 30 seconds as soon as I got into the position. This worked perfectly and may become one of my favorite uses for the Amazon Echo Dot. What is your favorite use for the Echo?
