Your clients may soon be able to use a shirt or pair of pants as an effective alternative to a wrist-worn activity tracker.
Researchers have developed a system of leg trackers, in contrast to those worn on the wrist, that’s more accurate at monitoring activity.
Researchers have developed a method to leverage fitness tracker data to create tailored digital messages specific to the wearer.
A research breakthrough increases the likelihood that sensors in smart workout clothes will soon provide valuable performance data.
If you’re a coach or trainer, getting your clients’ blood tested with the personalized performance platform, InsideTracker, is a no-brainer.
A new wearable tracker can measure—in almost real time—multiple metabolic markers and metabolite levels, formerly measurable only in a lab.
Innovations in soft and wearable electronics will soon make personal fitness monitoring possible in all types of conditions.
Some people with darker skin tones have experienced inaccurate heart rate readings when using HR monitors.
New research shows that, while increasing steps to 4,400 steps per day enhances longevity (and walking more does have numerous health benefits), adding steps without increasing intensity or changing other lifestyle habits may not lead to weight loss.
Our heart’s physiological response to changes in exercise intensity during physical activity can be both monitored and measured to better manage a cardiovascular training (CVT) experience. A heart rate monitor is an accurate tool for measuring these changes. According to cardiovascular expert Sally Edwards of Sacramento, California, author of The Heart Rate Monitor Guidebook to Heart Zone Training (Heart Zones Publishing 2010), “You only need two pieces of gear to work out: a good pair of athletic shoes and a heart rate monitor.”
