Redefining Fitness Tracking:

At Amiigo we wanted to create something that would allow people to track the details of an exercise routine & how it affects the body. We wanted to allow users to track specific things like; exercise type, reps, sets, duration, speed, and intensity. Amiigo also tracks heart rate, blood oxygen levels, skin temperature, overall activity level, and calories burned. 

 

How is Amiigo different?

Activity Recognition & Physiological Data. Amiigo provides a more personalized fitness tracking experience because we can detect exactly what you are doing and how your body is responding. For example, Amiigo can determine whether you're using the elliptical, running, swimming, doing bicep curls, squats, etc. Amiigo can track & identify different activities and then correlate these activities with physiological information such as heart rate and blood oxygen saturation.

Create and Record. Users can create and record new exericises that might be unique, abstract or specific to them. After a user records an exercise, it will be recognized in future workouts!

The Wrist Bracelet & The Shoe Clip

Two devices, one purpose = unlimited tracking potential. The bracelet captures the movement of your upper body, and the shoe clip captures the movement of your lower body. The shoe clip enables detailed tracking for cycling, certain leg exercises, and other activities where arm movement is not present. For the most ideal tracking experience use both devices. But, they can function independently, for times when you're not wearing shoes or can't have anything on your wrist.

The bracelet is micro-adjustable allowing for a perfect fit on even the most unique wrist sizes. The shoe clip slides onto any shoe lace and even some shoe straps. Working alone, both devices can track overall activity level and calories burned. For storage and simple portability, attach the shoe clip directly to the bracelet. Both the bracelet and shoe clip are completely waterproof.

Wireless Connectivity 

Using Bluetooth 4.0, the bracelet and shoe clip connect to iOS and Android phones. Amiigo has memory and can store data for hours. A constant Bluetooth connection is not required.

Amiigo allows you to compete with friends, share on social networks, achieve your goals and earn points. So whether you’re a runner, swimmer, cyclist, weight lifter, crossfitter, golfer, out-door enthusiast or just an active person... Amiigo has something for you. Our goal is to make fitness more fun, simple and social.
