New activity tracker from SparkPeople

Boot Camp feature for Friday, October 25, 2013

A new activity tracker from SparkPeople.  I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     Fitness technology is moving fast these days….so it is almost surprising that it has taken this long for SparkPeople to come out with its own branded wearable device.   SparkPeople.com attracts more than 12 million unique visitors a month as one of the top weight loss and fitness destinations online.    About the new activity tracker, founder and CEO Chris Downie says…

“It has things like a battery that lasts six to twelve months, versus just a few days for many of the other ones.  One thing it does is recognizes incremental exercises.   So if you do at least ten minutes of continuous exercise, it’s going to reward you for that.   And it will know whether you’re walking, running, cycling.”

 

You can clip it on almost anywhere…but the recommended location is on a shoe.   The price…under 60 dollars…at Amazon and elsewhere.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.    I’m Fred Fishkin.
