MOOV is well known as fitness wearable which acts as your mobile personal trainer. The device tracks your body movements in 3D and uses the data to run the personal trainer apps. The company has now developed a new fitness wearable called the MOOV NOW. It is a sleeker and smaller device than its predecessor. The device has been developed by an ex-alumnus of Apple. It is meant to help you achieve the best workout. It is billed as the most advanced wearable powered by artificial intelligence which can analyze movement in real-time. Based on the data it can guide the users to perform better.
How Does it Work?
The MOOV NOW works in a similar way like the MOOV wearable. You can attach it to your wrist, ankle or arm and use different apps to track certain workouts. On the basis of your exact movement, you will be advised accordingly by a virtual fitness coach. For instance, if your swimming strokes are not strong or your running stride is too hard, you will be notified by the tracker. The MOOV NOW is around the size of a quarter.
Your performance will be better as your activity is tracked and actionable insight is provided into each workout. The device can record metrics like calories, steps taken and sleep statistics. If you wear MOOV NOW while running, it will notify you when you have to shorten your stride, land softer or pick up the speed. The device supports walking, running, cycling, swimming, cardio boxing and more.
