It does seem as though the market should prepare itself to greet the very first wearable activity tracker from iFit Active pretty soon. After all, the company first showed off their iFit Active wearable band at CES earlier this year in January, and it is nice to know that one quarter later, the device has made its way through the FCC, with expectations of it hitting store shelves later this spring for $129 a pop.
While iFit Active has released products that comprise of the likes of treadmills and exercise bikes so far, in addition to fitness-tracking apps on the Android and iOS platforms, this wearable band is different from the rest since it allows one to access the company’s ecosystem without having to fork out thousands of dollars in purchasing an expensive treadmill. It has all the necessary basic features to get you started, just as what you would find on the other offerings from Fitbit, Withings, and Jawbone.
This iFit Active wearable activity tracker is able to track your sleep pattern, distance traveled, steps taken, and estimated calories burned, followed by synchronizing such data with your smartphone. Using the iFit Active wearable band is a snap – you can place it on your wrist as a watch, or opt to remove it from the wristband and put the tracker into a clip so that it can be hooked to a belt or placed within a pocket.
