iFit Active Tracker


iFit announced several devices at CES including an activity tracker, an Internet-connected fitness equipment offering, and GPS-tracking apps. The activity tracker is called the iFit Active Tracker. It can be worn as a clip-on device or on a wristband and it tracks activity, distance, steps, calories burned, and sleep patterns, sending the data to the user's phone.

iFit's fitness equipment makes use of a partnership with Google Maps to display moving Google street views as the user moves on a treadmill, elliptical, or stationary bike. The user can run or bike a pre-mapped route like the Tour De France or the Boston Marathon, or they can "record" a route via their phone's GPS and a special iFit app, then play it back on the machines later. The GPS app, connected app for the tracker, and the connected machines all use a shared login to allow users to see all their data in one place. The tracker will be available in April for $129.
