Joining the wearables revolution is Amiigo, which unlike other fitness tracking devices has two components, a wristband (or bracelet) and the shoe clip. This, according to the company behind the idea, should enable much better tracking of one’s activities.
Aside from regular step counting, Amiigo can recognize different activity types and track specific things like exercise type, reps, sets, duration, speed and intensity. Moreover, it will also add heart rate, blood oxygen levels, skin temperature, overall activity level, and calories burned to the mix.
For the most ideal tracking experience use both devices, but they can function independently just as well.It is said that the two device design allows better tracking. The bracelet captures the movement of your upper body, while the shoe clip captures the movement of your lower body, and can be used with such exercises as cycling, certain leg exercises, and other activities where arm movement is not present. For the most ideal tracking experience use both devices; though they can function independently, for times when you’re not wearing shoes or can’t have anything on your wrist.
The bracelet is micro-adjustable allowing for a perfect fit on even the most unique wrist sizes. The shoe clip slides onto any shoe lace as well as some shoe straps. For storage and simple portability, attach the shoe clip directly to the bracelet. Both the bracelet and shoe clip are completely waterproof.
The two devices connect to the iPhone and Android devices via Bluetooth, presenting the results of an exercise in an easy to grasp manner. The accompanying app also allows users to compete with friends, share their achievement on social networks, hit goals and earn points.
Amiigo is looking to raise $90,000 in an Indiegogo campaign. A single unit goes for $99.
