In the latest edition of our podcast , we answer the question of what tools are helpful in our opinion in sports . To put it bluntly – the benefits of all kinds of “sports” bracelets low, especially publicized and popular Fitbit and Jawbone ( regardless of model) , and if you really pay attention to something (assuming that you really want results , not mischief ) it is necessary to resort to more specialized products like Polar FT80. Nevertheless , the new Atlas, which is now actively collecting money on Indiegogo, attracted our attention , largely thanks to his ” mind .”
By the way , looking ahead, it is worth noting that the amount required to produce a fitness bracelet , already collected ( $ 196,708 at an estimated at $ 125,000 ), but continue fundraising campaign is still as much 17 days, so you have a chance to become one of the first owners of sports techno trends . But here, you have to pay for anything , because in contrast to the banal and limited pedometers and heart rate monitor Atlas offers a much more complex and purposeful decision – this “intelligent” bracelet is able to perceive motion in all three planes , making it automatically determines what exercise you do.
Range of exercises more than wide, it can be as lifting dumbbell biceps , bench press , squats, lunges , and jogging, swimming, jumping , push-ups and stuff. All information is updated in real time ( including your heartbeat ), and Atlas is able to recognize not only an exercise in general, but also to recognize its variations , for example, whether there is supination or pronation same during certain movements, swimming style , and lower upper point in pushups , ” chitinguete ” you – the list extends far , it can be and exercises with a rope , and TRX- loops , even if the exercise is not recognized , you can always teach bracelet new movements independently.
Depending on what you do ( and did) for a certain amount of time , you will be given advice on how to adjust the program is worth when it is best to rest, and when the opposite – ” to push .”
In all of this , announced new support at the moment three sports application assistant (MapMyFitness, Fitocracy and Lose It!) And has an open API, so any developer can include in your application support Atlas; present here and the social component – in your profile will be entered all your accomplishments and achievements displayed friends .
Sounds all very promising and tempting, but the developers have set themselves the task of considerable , given the fact that all people are different , and the style of exercise to determine its performance, not to mention the program and councils , the bracelet is sometimes quite difficult . But enough words – if you are interested, you should go to Indiegogo and spend between $ 159 ( do not forget the extra $ 15 for shipping to any country other than the U.S.) for this product .
