Forget about just tracking steps and heart rate, this new fitness band can tell you what your body composition is. That’s right, it knows how much lean body mass you have and how much fat you’re carrying around. It’s from a company called InBody and it’ll go for $179.
Who needs a high-tech pair of running shoes to analyze their running style? These high-tech socks measure everything from your gait to how you strike the pavement. They explain the socks like this,
“Sensoria® socks are infused with proprietary 100% textile sensors. They are paired with a Bluetooth Smart cool and detachable anklet that not only delivers superior accuracy in step counting, speed, calories, altitude and distance tracking, but goes well beyond that to track cadence, foot landing technique as you walk and run.
Sensoria® may help you identify injury-prone running styles (heel striking, ball striking, etc), then leverages a mobile app to coach the runner in real-time via audio cues. The Sensoria® dashboard can also help achieve goals, improve performance and reduce risk of gravitating back to bad tendencies. ”
Sensoria socks are from a company that also makes other types of sensory gear from shirts to bras. Interesting stuff at Sensoria’s Web site.
