Do you have a wearable, but do not know what to do with the data? Perhaps the reason you have not opted to buy a wearable is that you cannot see how simple data like counted steps and heart rate will actually help you in your workouts?
Well, now is your time to strike while Moov Now is at its early bird pricing of $59.99, and has not yet hit retail.
The Moov Now is a fitness tracker that aims at giving real-time feedback on the data it tracks—not unlike having a personal trainer inside a wearable. It fits like a watch on your hand or ankle, and syncs via Bluetooth to your smartphone. From there, Moov Now will give you advice or direction on the screen of your phone, or through headphones.
In addition to providing real-time feedback, like adjustments to running form, Moov Now can guide the user through workouts. It comes with five different apps for five different activities—running, swimming, cycling, boxing and timed workouts.
The Moov Now is a second-generation product, preceded by the simply named Moov. Much between these two is similar, but the Moov Now comes in a smaller package—a less bulky device with a more breathable band. The battery lasts for six months, and is completely waterproof and dustproof.
Apart from the hardware, the update also includes an increased database with workouts, feedback, etc. It is improved in all manners, but the concepts are the same.
Moov credits much of its success to athletes and trainers that have added their input. During the development stage, the creators of Moov brought in a number of coaches and professionals to partake in workouts using the wearable. They then collected that data and used it to track how those people moved, adding that information to their device.
As well, the fitness tracker comes from a considerable amount of research from the founders, along with Harvard, Stanford and US Army researchers.
