CNET First Look
Moov Now review: A fitness tracker and personal trainer in oneThe new Moov Now offers real-time coaching and feedback to help you get in shape. CNET's Dan Graziano gives you a first look.
[MUSIC] There are a ton of fitness trackers out there, but very few of them offer real-time coaching and feedback aimed at getting beginners in shape. That's where the $100 Moov Now comes in. This little device can help make you a better runner, a faster cyclist, a more efficient swimmer and help you lose weight. On top of all that, it measures your sleep at night Calories burned, and active minutes. Although as a fitness tracker, it's definitely not on the same level as a Fitbit or a Jawbone. The Moov excels when it comes to teaching you exercises. The Android and iOS app includes four coaching activities. There's one for running and walking, another for cycling, one for swimming, and one for at home coaching, which includes interval workouts you can do without weights, and my personal favorite. A boxing workout. The only downside is with this workout you need to purchase a second device, but all of the others work with just one. But rather than keep talking about the move now, I figured I should just show you. Next up is jumping jacks. Finish 10 in 30 seconds. Ready, start. One, two Three, four, five, six, seven, two more. Eight, [MUSIC] Heels on the ground. Keep it up. Four, awesome job. [MUSIC] For a guy who's in shape, at least I believe I'm in shape, it's it's pretty difficult. I'm sweating. I'm exhausted. Whew! For a hundred dollars or even two hundred dollars to the boxing, you can get your cardio. You can get your strength, especially if you don't' have a gym membership. That's such an easy way to workout. I can definitely feel my arm's already sore from it, but I, I don't know if it would appeal to me as an experienced If you're like my parents or you're someone who doesn't know what to do at the gym this is like a good tracker for you. It's got some quirks, but it'll get the job done.
