New Wave of Smart Fitness Tech November 14 2020
You’ve undoubtedly seen or heard about Peloton bikes. They’re part of an intricate system that lets you watch and interact with live spinning classes from your home while watching an instructor on the other side of the country or world. Peloton’s success has blazed a trail for other smart tech products that are already trending as fitness gifts this holiday season.
Claiming to be the nearly invisible home gym, Mirror is a standing, digital mirror that displays/projects the controls and the instructor’s video demonstrations on the mirror itself (no secondary screen) while you’re working out and comparing your own reflection.
Liteboxer is the punching bag of the future that lets you step into the ring without stepping out of your house. Its sensors will gauge each hit and provide feedback on how to improve your strike.
Hydrow applies many of the same features as Peloton to a rowing workout including on-demand video and daily live classes with rowing athletes while they're live and on the water.
KettlebellConnect 2.0 from JaxJox demonstrates that we can digitize anything - including something as simple as a kettlebell. The one kettlebell can weigh between 12-42 lbs. depending on its settings and can provide real-time performance tracking. Similar to the other devices on this list, KettlebellConnect 2.0 allows you to workout while viewing live or on-demand classes.
