Are you bored with DVD-style fitness apps that dictates you what to do, but they don’t consider your body’s needs and don’t give you feedback whether you’re doing the exercise properly? Well, we are!
Appic Fitness is in so many ways different than any other fitness app you experienced before. It is…
– intelligent: because it adjusts the training program to your body’s needs
– interactive: because it tracks your body movements and heart rate to give you an instant feedback
– immersive: it shows you a live movie stream that compares your body posture with the trainer. It makes you feel like you’re part of the fitness video, consequently it keeps you motivated.
How do we make this possible? We use the motion sensors of the iPhone that is attached to the upper arm (e.g.with an armband) and optionally a Pebble smart watch at the lower arm. Our clever algorithms reconstruct the body posture and compare it with the moves of a professional trainer.
The launch of our prototype app for iPhone is coming closer and closer. Its functionality is straightforward: while you are training, the current exercise and a real-time animation of you performing the exercise is displayed on your Apple TV or iPhone screen. Additionally the number of executions and the remaining time is displayed.
Until then here’s a tech demo of an early prototype:
We are determined to make the first prototype available for testers at the beginning of April. Stay tuned, more news coming soon.
