Moov might be the most advanced wearable yet! The fitness tracker works like a personal trainer but only costs you as much as any other tracker (from $79.95). Moov not only motivates you but teaches you and wants to improve your fitness activities with real-time feedback.
So far you can only pre-order your Moov and it’s supposed to be officially in sale starting this fall.
The Moov band can be worn on different parts of your body, like your ankle or wrist, depending on the information you’re looking to get out of it.
Moov was designed to allow everyone to understand and improve their biomechanics during exercise and physical activity. Moov can be your new artificial intelligence personal fitness trainer. This means that with its real-time AI powered feedback, you can maximize your every workout and help prevent injuries resulting from improper form.
Who else has the bad feeling they’re doing something wrong when going running? Would be great to have real-time feedback on the way you run and what should be improved!
Compared to other fitness wearables, Moov is not a passive activity tracker but an active coach to push and encourage you during your workouts.
