Get a Moov on

Our daily lives are ruled by technology. Now ingrained in our lives, it’s no surprise that technology has also invaded the fitness world. Today, countless apps and wearables are available for every type of fitness enthusiast. There are wearables that will simply measure your heart rate, distance traveled and calories burned. Then there are more sophisticated gadgets that can track your sleeping and fitness habits, and even gently coax you to exercise if you miss a workout. One wearable making waves in the market today is Moov. What makes Moov interesting is it can provide real-time audio coaching just like a personal trainer. It works by tracking your motions and suggests ways to improve your form. Designed by former Apple engineer Nikola Hu, Moov’s algorithm and ideal forms are based on collected data from a number of elite athletes and trainers. To efficiently track body movement, Moov uses 3D mapping to understand how your body is moving without the use of a camera. And since the entire body is being tracked, Moov can be used in different types of fitness activities such as, running, walking, swimming, weight lifting, boxing, golf and even yoga.
Being initially financed by crowdfunding, Moov has recently received funding from Banyan Capital. You can read about the funding here.
