Boot Camp feature for Thursday, February 23, 2012

     If your New Year’s resolutions are fading, tech can come to the rescue.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Tech fitness gadgets are growing fast and a company called BodyMedia has become one of the most successful.   It is out with a new Core armband, designed to be worn just about all day and night.   And, says CEO Chris Robins…

“There’s a three axis accelerometer and then three on body physiological sensors that help us understand not only your motion but how your body is reacting to that exertion of energy or the sleep.  And then it’s paired with a software application.  You can experience the information on a Web application, on a mobile phone, even on a Panasonic TV.  And we help people understand essentially their calorie burn, the intensity of their activity levels throughout the day.”

And you can input what you’re eating.   The price, about 170 dollars and there is a subscription model for the online or smartphone tracking.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
