A new fitness toy has been developed for those of us who strive to make fitness fun. You must admit that a machine that tells you how fast you are going, what your heart rate is, and how many calories you are burning is much more motivating than just taking it for granted.
Impact Sports Technologies has developed a new way to monitor personal fitness goals and put all of the data in a glove. The Power Glove is a simple way of monitoring your personal data based on dynamic heart rate.
The glove weighs only one ounce so it is not only comfortable on but easy to keep tucked in the pocket of your gym bag. The sensor will provide on-the-go feedback on heart rate and calories burned during everyday used and is based on your own personal profile. Because the monitor does not require a chest strap it can be worn during your daily activities. The glove uses an embedded sensor and features an easy to read LED display on the back of the glove that can be seen day or night.
The glove is available online at www.impactsports.com and will soon be available at retail outlets. Future versions will also monitor blood oxygen levels and will interface with a PC- based fitness and calorie counting program. Who said working out couldn’t be fun?
