Lumo Lift

The Good The Lumo Lift goes beyond typical fitness metrics to measure your posture. It's also comfortable to wear and can even pass as an accessory.

The Bad The Lift app's offers too much design and not enough data.

The Bottom Line The Lumo Lift offers a fresh alternative to other fitness trackers, but its limited features will disappoint anyone who wants to track multiple metrics.

A posture tracker that puts design over details

The Lumo Lift addresses a metric that few other wearable fitness trackers up to this point have, that being your posture. It does this by resting against your upper torso (or décolletage), using hardware sensors and algorithms to measure your body's alignment. Every time you put it on, you calibrate it, telling Lift what posture you want to maintain -- whether that's perfectly upright, or slightly slouchy.

Then, throughout the day, the tracker keeps track of how often you stay in that posture and when you deviate from it. You can see your progress, as well as your step count and distance, in the Lift app available for iOS and Android.

Throughout my testing, I enjoyed wearing the Lift. However, be advised that it's up to you to tell the Lift what posture you want, and you don't get any data on how to improve your posture. The Lift also doesn't offer sleep or elevation tracking. The device did at least make me more aware of how I sit and stand, causing me to sit up a little straighter at my desk. And I agree with Lift that walking down the street with my shoulders back and head up made me feel more confident.
