Excited to share good news about their new product, the German-based startup GYMWATCH announced it has surpassed its $85k crowdfunding campaign goal on Indiegogo and raised over $136k to finance the production of the GYMWATCH Sensor. The company developed the patent-protected sensor that measures strength and motion in every fitness exercise. The tracker will be available at the end of July and the first action of the team after reaching its funding goal was to order 2,000 circuit boards and 2,000 batteries for the first pre-orders.
The GYMWATCH Senor tracks every strength component, such as starting strength, explosive strength or speed strength, as well as the precise motion amplitude in every exercise. It can differentiate between full and partial repetitions and the time under tension of eccentric, concentric, and static muscle contraction.
The GYMWATCH Sensor is easy to use and is versatile applicable. The key features include tracking strength exercises with free weights, body weight or exercises on machines, as well as tracking cardio training; it automatically calculates the optimum weight to avoid overloading or under-loading, and to achieve goals as fast as possible; it has different models such as free-mode and guided-mode.
The sensor includes Bluetooth, Bluetooth smart and ANT. This allows the user to connect the sensor with the GYMWATCH iPhone and Android app, which gives the user visual and auditory, real-time feedback. The user can also connect the sensor to computers or other devices to show the training data and live feedback on every screen, even at home or in the gym.
The app synchronizes with a free web portal that supports the user with extensive functions for training and management. Scientific algorithms support the user in planning and analyzing fitness training by considering individual goals, personal data, and the training data calculated by the sensor.
