New BodyMedia Technology Does Vegas
BodyMedia set to debut the BodyMedia FIT™ Mobile Platform and New Technology Partnerships at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas
The BodyMedia FIT Armband BW is a ground-breaking wakeup call that takes the information collected from users’ Armbands and literally puts it at their fingertips by communicating directly with their smartphones for extra motivation to make healthy choices throughout the day. The product tracks calories burned, steps taken and physical activity in real time and allows users to log food while on the go. The new technology is a finalist for the Bluetooth SIG Best of CES Award program in the NEXT category.
Get With the Band
To demonstrate the power and uniqueness of the new Mobile platform, BodyMedia will debut the Armband BW with a bang, instituting a number of experiential initiatives that will showcase the powerful (and fun) ways in which the product makes fitness and nutrition goals accessible and attainable. Conference participants can follow Nic the Intern – a living, breathing product demonstration – as he explores and experiences the city – and tracks it all on his Armband BW! From racing and running to skydiving and clubbing – and hopefully sleeping – his antics and activities will be interesting and informative.
