There are many of us out there who want to get in shape and while we do hit the gym, we’re sure there are many who are clueless as to what we need to do. Sure we can run on the treadmill, use the rowing machine, hop on the bike, but what about other activities? A personal trainer is a great way to go about learning the right moves and right exercises, but they can be pretty expensive which is where the Gymwatch comes in.

Unlike most wearable devices like smartwatches, the Gymwatch will offer more than just your typical biometrics sensors like a pedometer, heart rate sensor, and so on. According to the description, the Gymwatch is “basically a personal trainer shrunk to the size of a watch.”

The Gymwatch will come with a bevy of your usual sensors and in Free-Mode, it will be able to collect and measure data so that you can track your own progress. However if you wanted a little guidance, Guide-Mode comes into play and will link up with an app on your smartphone in which the app will not only help keep count during your exercises, it will also be able to tell you if you’re doing the exercise wrongly based on the measures of your movement.

Of course we can’t speak as to how effective the personal training mode will be, since there’s really no substitute to an actual personal trainer with years of experience, but if you don’t want to fork out for a personal trainer, perhaps the Gymwatch could prove itself to be a viable alternative.
