Elevate your athleticism – CES 2016

Elevate your athleticism – CES 2016
Ryan Loebe

Looking to take your athleticism to the next level? At CES 2016, tech companies showcased wearables to monitor your movement in several sports such as baseball, snowboarding, surfing or just plain ol’ jogging.

The Easton Power Sensor attaches to the bottom of any bat and tracks your movement as you take a swing. An advanced algorithm called Blast Factor helps batters gain a better understanding of their swing from a wide range of metrics captured by the Power Sensor.

The sensor also leverages video recordings from your phone while you swing to better determine the best way to develop your swing. The Easton Power Sensor’s adaptive slow-mo technology is unlike anything on the market as it analyzes the video to get insights and metrics like swing speed and time-to-contact. If you‘re working with a batting coach or you want to be social with your friends or family, the Easton Power Sensor allows users to send stats. The Easton Power Sensor is compatible with iOS and just launched their Android app this past fall. Available for purchase now retailing at $149.95.

Have you yet to join the fitness tracker community? No worries! Under Armor has created an all-in-one tracking system that is sure to impress and improve your athleticism. The Under Armor HealthBox Tracking System comes equipped with three new fitness wearables and gadgets; a wristband, a heart rate strap, and the UA scale.

The band helps you own your day as it tracks everything from your resting heart rate while you sleep to your heart rate during a rigorous workout. The heart rate strap pairs with the band and determines your heart rate zone at any time of the day. With the accompanying app, you can switch to “rest mode” which informs the HealthBox that you’ll be skipping out on the gym that day. The UA scale tracks weight, measures body fat content and gives an accurate calculation of where the user is at in terms of their fitness goals. Achieve your fitness with Under Armor’s simple all-in-one tracking system. HealthBox is available for preorder and ships on January 22, 2016 for $400.00.

Athletes that enjoy sports such as snowboarding, surfing or windsurfing can now track exactly how their board moves and what they need to do in order to improve their athletic adventure. The Air mounts to any sports board and is weatherproof. Shipping now around the world for $249.00.
