It’s that one time of the year when industry leaders all get together to showcase their best designs, and this time around was no different. From a fitness watch that charges via solar to a home boxing set-up that will make your friends envious.
If you want to get fit but do not look forward to signing up at a gym, then this one is for you. The “workout from home subscription packages” are getting increasingly popular, despite the high price tags.
To set up your FightCamp will cost about $1,000. The package includes a pair of boxing gloves, freestanding punching bag, mats, hand wraps and an electronic tracker to monitor your movements. There’s an added monthly subscription of $39, which gives you access to live training in your living room.
If you already have a boxing set-up at home, you can skip the package and just go for the electronic trackers and wraps. That will save you about $600.
If boxing is not your thing, the Jaxjox might be your saving grace. It’s an adjustable kettlebell with different weight options so you basically just need the one kettlebell, instead of a shell filled with various sizes.
The kettlebell comes with sensors to track your movement, including the intensity and duration of your workouts. At a premium price of $350, you get access to hardware that will take your workout session to the next level.
In a world filled with Garmins and Fitbits and Jawbones, you might think that we don’t need yet another fitness watch. But you would be wrong. The Matrix Powerwatch 2 is not just another watch.
Gone are the days when your fitness watch’s battery runs out because you forgot to charge it. The Powerwatch 2 “draws the power it needs to run from your body heat and ambient light.” It also has a built-in GPS, heart rate monitoring, calorie count option, and can be linked to Google Fit or Apple HealthKit.
Are you under pressure? Do you need something to boost your rational thinking and restore calmness to your life? TouchPoint stress relievers promise to do just yet. The non-invasive neuroscientific wearables “are said to relieve stress by over 70% in just 30 seconds.”
The wearable utilises a technology called BLAST which uses “gentle, haptic micro vibrations to alter your body’s natural stress response and keep you in a calm state of mind.” This will lead to mindfulness, improved quality of sleep and better performance.
This nifty innovation is basically a barbell rack that sets resistance automatically. It features two large side supports and a weight lifting bar. You can choose at which resistance level you want to train.
The machine’s creator explained that it has an intelligent control system “based on advanced training methodology.” The technology was invented by highly respected sports trainer, Kazuo Higa.
