One of the biggest occurrences in January is the Consumer Electronics Show or CES as it is commonly known. Among the big bendable TVs and the next generation computer consoles, the big focus at CES this year is fitness technology. In fact, the sheer array of fitness items is quite astonishing. So, let’s take a look at some of the best fitness tech devices from this years CES.

Fitness Tech From CES

fitness tech scandu Scanadu

The Scanadu is just one of innumerable health monitors at the show and this beautiful device is capable of measuring a huge range of health data. The Scanadu can perform heart rate analysis, is capable of measuring your blood oxygen levels and blood pressure and is even able to perform the less the lovely task of analysing urine. Don’t balk. The device has tests for glucose, protein, pH levels and whole lot more and is very beneficial for those who are really focused on their fitness goals.

TAO

Isometric holds are something that’s being gaining increased note in the weight building community as they are capable of adding more muscle fibres in the gym. TAO can be held outside the gym and is essentially a handheld activity tracker that also offers isometric technology. So, not only does it track sleep, heart rates, calories and other data, but it also helps build muscle – or so we’re told.

Reebok Checklight

You may have seen these devices if you’ve watched some rugby or are an American Football fan. The Reebok Checklight is worn beneath a scrum cap or boxing helmet and measures the impact of blows to the head. The current generation of these devices are capable of splitting the measurement into three groups – so light, medium and hard. However, expect the next generation to provide very accurate measurements. Ideal for those involved in competitive sports that involve hard hits.

Skulpt

This is one of the weight lighting communities. Skuplt can be placed on the muscle area being worked out and will calculate the quality of the muscle fibres in that particular area, amount of fat and also how hard the muscles are being worked during a workout. This allows you to see whether an area needs more work, whether you can push yourself harder and also whether you should stop training as you’re about to overdo it. We can see it being of use for certain people involved in specific sports at Detox Fit.

LG Life Band

One of the most touted items at the show, the LG Life Band provides smart watch features such as taking calls and stopping and starting music and also takes a lot of fitness information. This means it can calculate the calories burned, pace, distance etc. It can also measure things such as blood flow and a range of other data and works with both Android and Apple IOS phones. It’s just one of many devices like this at the show.

It’s good to see the world of technology pushing items like these forward. However, they will always only be supplements for a good workout and never a replacement for something like it.

    I do like the way you have presented this piratcular problem plus it does offer me a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, because of what precisely I have seen, I just simply hope when the actual feedback pack on that people stay on point and not start on a tirade of some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this excellent piece and although I can not really go along with the idea in totality, I regard your viewpoint.

    I had an ancient phone and I hated the idea of a smartphone that would allow me to be connected all the time. That is, until I got my iPhone a year ago. It totally changed the way I use technology and now I’m always on it – when walking, when waiting in line somewhere, at the gym.it’s getting to be too much! Thanks for the reminder to put it away and live in the present.

    Interesting to see your views on the Sherpa. I recently reviewed the Voltaic Systems’ 72W solution on my trip to northern Ethiopia and my final comments were less about the quality of the panel and battery (which was very good) but more about the ancillary bits. In my case the travel camera battery charger was so cheap that it failed early on and that would have been catastrophic had it nor been for someone else having a USB charger to hand. student laptops

    Technology is everywhere–entwined in almost every part of our culture. It affects how we live, work, play, and most importantly learn. With mobile and other wireless devices like the IoT becoming an increasing requirement across every industry today, it only makes sense that our schools are also effectively deploying mobile technology in the classroom. However, for many schools, implementing the latest technology is a difficult strategy to navigate.tech

    Tech has impacted our way of living nowadays big time. There are a lot of benefits we can get from there, but as great as those benefits are, we should also be aware of the danger they bring, no matter how minimal they are.4k

    I definitely need to challenge myself to be quiet more. I have forte a lot better but there is surely room for improvement! I feel like an old lady shaking my cane at a young whippersnapper when I say this, but what I wouldn’t give to have people in my real, every day, non virtual life who make it necessary not to spend all my time plugged in. Great post.Lisa

    This is seemingly where things are moving. Everyone will be able to just carry their computer around with them all day long, no more switching between multiple machines which all have their own ways of doing things. This certainly seems extremely convenient, though backup will become even more paramount in this situation. When you think about it, the way we do things now seems so primitive in comparison. The human-computer interface is still such a vicious battleground, with the computer often being the victor.bodrum kos feribot

    Whats funny about that is that Jack Eastman, one of the original creators of the Flying Toaster (After Dark, the first professional screensaver) was a old classmate of mine. One can look it up in the Wikipedia for After Dark… I noticed it one day while installing the software that his name was scrolling across the screen of the installer, so I call him up.lisa

    I am still a little bit skeptical about digesting nanomaterials, using it on your skin, etc. However so far there are no harmful side-effects. Truth be told quite the opposite. So far nanomaterials like these are often used in an industrial area but soon they are gonna be everywhere. From electronics to medical to cosmetics.Best Computer for Trading Stocks
