I’ve posted before how I’m not quite sold on fitness trackers. However, I was impressed when I saw Atlas, a crowd-funded tracking device that boasts features like real-time exercise recording and repetition counting. If there’s one thing I hate after a workout, it’s recording all of my sets, reps, and weights used. However, that element is crucial for progress. Through inertial sensors in the wrist monitor, Atlas can actually track your movements and by analyzing data, determine what exercise you’re doing. It certainly seems like a promising advancement in tracking devices.
As of right now, the Indiegogo campaign is still running.
I also wrote a feature on DailyBurn overviewing the device after a chat with CEO Peter Li. You can read that post here.
