New silicone tips, noise cancelling and transparency modes in a similar design

Apple has launched a new set of its popular true wireless earbuds with traditional silicone tips and noise-cancelling software.

The AirPods Pro have a similar design to the current non-isolating AirPods, complete with white stalks and an ultra-compact case. But instead of a plastic duct that rests in your ear, allowing sounds from the outside world to be heard over music, the AirPods Pro aim to block it all out.

The wearable LEX chair lets you sit where you want – but will it catch on?

A pair of aluminium legs that you strap to your bum could be the solution for people who find there are not enough chairs in the world. As long as they don’t mind looking ridiculous

On Wednesday night, the Tech Insider Twitter account made a simple statement: “This wearable chair could change how we work and travel.” The text was accompanied by a short video advertising the LEX bionic chair, a pair of £200 foldable aluminium legs that you strap to your bum and lean against whenever your legs get a bit tired. In the video, a man uses the LEX while sitting at a desk, waiting for a bus, and taking photos. It really does it all.

Skin-like sensors bring a human touch to wearable tech

Researchers have developed a super-stretchy, transparent and self-powering sensor that records the complex sensations of human skin. Dubbed artificial ionic skin — or AISkin for short — the researchers believe the innovative properties of AISkin could lead to future advancements in wearable electronics, personal health care and robotics.

New health monitors are flexible, transparent and graphene enabled

New technological devices are prioritizing non-invasive tracking of vital signs not only for fitness monitoring, but also for the prevention of common health problems such as heart failure, hypertension, and stress related complications, among others. Wearables based on optical detection mechanisms are proving an invaluable approach for reporting on our bodies inner workings and have experienced a large penetration into the consumer market in recent years. Current wearable technologies, based on non-flexible components, do not deliver the desired accuracy and can only monitor a limited number of vital signs. To tackle this problem, conformable non-invasive optical-based sensors that can measure a broader set of vital signs are at the top of the end-users’ wish list. Researchers have now demonstrated a new class of flexible and transparent wearable devices that are conformable to the skin and can provide continuous and accurate measurements of multiple human vital signs.

Dara Smart Scale

Posted on February 10, 2020February 10, 2020Categories Fitness TechnologyTags ,   Leave a comment on Dara Smart Scale

How Does The FitTrack Dara Work?

When standing on the FitTrack scale, a very low, safe electrical signal is sent from four metal electrodes through your feet. The electrical signal passes quickly through water that is present in hydrated muscle tissue but meets resistance when it hits fat tissue. This resistance is measured and input into scientifically validated FitTrack equations to calculate body composition measurements.

Weigh Smarter with 17 Health Measurements

Fat Mass

Get a clearer picture of your overall health.

Muscle Mass

Understand if you’re losing fat, gaining strength, or both.

Bone Mass

Discover your body’s foundational composition.

Weight

Accurate to +/- 300grams

Hydration

Maintain optimal levels of hydration every day.

 

Data can help you loose weight

Posted on February 10, 2020Categories Fitness TechnologyTags , , , , ,   Leave a comment on Data can help you loose weight

Most restrictive diets fail, which is a big problem for the millions of people who rely on them to lose weight and live their happiest, healthiest lives. The frustration of setbacks, combined with the dissatisfaction of not being able to enjoy some of your favorite foods can undoubtedly wear down your motivation.

But in our data-driven age, there’s a way to lose weight that doesn’t involve strictly regulating your diet or starving yourself of the foods you love.

This isn’t anything new. People have been counting calories, recording their exercise routines, and monitoring their body composition for decades.

But counting calories used to be a frustrating chore.

And knowing how many you needed in the first place used to be a guessing game.

Recording the effects of working out used to be tiresome and boring.

Monitoring your body composition used to be expensive and time-consuming.

At FitTrack, we understood that leveraging data is the most effective way to help people reach their weight loss goals. Our proprietary algorithm, designed by leading engineers alongside the FitTrack Medical Advisory Board, empowers users with more information, more easily accessible than ever before, that they can use to adjust their lifestyles so that they can be aligned with their goals. We’re proud to say that our device is within +/- 3% as accurate as a DEXA x-ray scan thanks to the hard work of our team.

HOW DOES DATA HELP ME?

The smartest decision you can ever make is an informed decision. Every time you step on the FitTrack Dara and record your smart body report on the FitTrack Pro app, you’re becoming more informed about one of the most important things in your life:

Your body.

By analyzing 17 different health metrics, you can learn exactly how your short- and long-term decisions are affecting your body, and adjust accordingly to align your decisions with your long-term goals.

Not sure how many calories you should be consuming?

Monitor your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) to see how many calories you’ll burn at rest, then factor in your activity levels to plan your meals throughout the week.

Gained weight, but you’ve been eating carefully and working out?

Instead of getting frustrated, review your historical progress to determine what’s happening in your body. Has your muscle rate increased? Since muscle weighs more than fat, there’s a chance that you can gain weight while simultaneously improving your health

MOST IMPORTANTLY,

Data helps you stay motivated. Before our smart body BMI scale, our users only had one metric to base all of their decisions on: their weight. That means that even though a diet and fitness routine might’ve been working, and they were improving their overall health (and on their way to their ideal weight, once their metabolism caught up to their efforts), many individuals might’ve quit.

That’s because it’s frustrating when we don’t see the results we want to see, but now, thanks to the FitTrack Dara, we can better understand how our bodies are working towards our goals so that we can stay the course.

Data makes us more informed, it also makes us patient

And patience is a critical ingredient to the recipe for a healthy lifestyle. Track your results, be proud of the progress you’re making, and use data to help plan your route to the lifestyle you’ve always wanted.

Speaking of patience, we’ve been listening to what you’ve been saying. We’re excited to announce a range of new products designed to help you take even greater control than ever before, including a massive update to our FitTrack Pro app.
