GymWatch is a tracker for people focused on building muscles, and definately one the more interesting trackers in my opinion. GymWatch goes beyond simply counting reps and steps, the GYMWATCH Sensor isn’t simply about motivating you to work out, it actually helps you perform your workout better by focusing on muscle building, strength and calorie burning. Strapped to your arm and/or your leg, the sensor measures the full range of motion you do in every exercise. Two sensors can be used simultaneously in a duo. GymWatch connectes to your iphone or android phone to give you real-time visual and auditory feedback on your posture and technique. It can detect incorrectly performed exercises and offer tips to improve them so you get the maximum benefit from your workout; pretty damn handy!
