On January 28, fitness expert Lorna Kleidman responds to the announcement of a recent fitness gadget: a wristband that tracks your progress throughout your workout.
It’s called the Amiigo bracelet and it’s a small bracelet that can track various cardio workouts as well as weight lifting exercises. “Rather than having to manually log exercises within fitness software, the Amiigo tracks over 100 common exercises and logs interesting data such as number of reps and sets, speed of completion, duration of the exercise and overall intensity,” stated an article from Digital Trends.
The gadget is great for measuring progress over time. According to the article, weight lifters will be able to compare how much they can lift today as compared to a month ago, whereas swimmers and runners can track their progress in distance. Additionally, the Amiigo can upload to your phone for more tracking and for adding workouts that it may not recognize.
But what can the Amiigo offer for workout enthusiasts that they couldn’t manually record themselves? The gadget can measure heart rate, core temperature and blood oxygen levels. So even if you don’t meet your goals in terms of losing weight or increasing run distance, you can still see how your body is dealing with the workouts as you advance along an exercise routine.
Lorna Kleidman applauds the new fitness tracker. “It would be great if this new device specifically recognized exercise using kettlebells as well as traditional lifting exercises,” said Kleidman, who praises the new fitness tracker’s ability to monitor the body. “This could be a great form of motivation for people who have a keen interest in fitness.”
Kleidman adds that one of the best parts of the Amiigo is the ability to set fitness goals. When people have clear, defined goals, they are much more likely to keep at their workout routine, and therefore see better results much quicker.
