First Look: The Lumo Lift is a fashionable posture-tracking wearable gadget

1:34 /

Track your posture, step count, and calorie burn with this small magnetic fitness device.

Hi, I'm Sarah Mitroff and today we're taking a look at the Boomo Lift, a wearable fitness tracker that tracks your posture. Most other fitness trackers on the market only keep tabs on your movement, such as how many steps you take or how much distance you cover. The lift which costs $99 does that too but it's main purpose is to pay attention to how you sit and stand. The device has a bit of fashionable flair with a magnetic clasp that can be worn on top of your outfit or hidden away. That clasp comes in silver and black and you can purchase additional colors separately. The Lumo Lift works like this, you attach the Lift to your clothing right below your collar bone using the magnetic plate. Once it's in place get into your desired posture then press the List twice to calibrate it and it'll vibrate three times. You can now go about your day and the lift will track your posture and movement. It sends all of that info to an IOS app where you can see your daily stats, including your activity levels and posture performance. Lift also has a coaching mode that will buzz you when you slip out of your prefered posture. Just press and hold the device to start a coaching session. And you'll feel the vibration each time you slouch. There are tons of fitness gadgets out there with the Fitbit, Jobonap and Basis Band dominating the landscape. Looma was hoping it's unique approach with the Lift would set it apart. Overall, the Lift is a well designed device for tracking your daily steps and body alignment. You can check out my full review of the Looma Lift on Cnet.com. I'm Sarah Michoff and as always thanks for watching.
