Push fitness tracker puts focus on strength training

Smartwatches
[MUSIC] This is called the push, it tracks your power and and your velocity, while you're lifting. Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNet and were here to check out a brand new type of fitness tracker, you've seen a lot of fitness trackers that measure how much your running, how active you are throughout the day,. But here's one just for people who are professional athletes really tying to hone in on their strength training. A lot of times you want to know what your one rep max is. The core of everything really comes down to the app software. Based on what you're needs are, it'll you recommendations on how much reps you should do and how much weight you should be lifting. On the app you choose your exercise and set how much weight you will lift. The arm band tracks your precise movement and speed to calculate you power. Based on your speed, it may suggest you try more weight or if you're slow and unsteady, you could be close to your max. This was actually a crowd funded product. They were on IndyGoGo to meet their goal. Those who were the first people to donate are getting their units now. For those that preorder, they can get it for about $150. And it'll start arriving in August. And when it hits the market it'll go up to about $190. A lotta professional athletes are actually usin' it now. Many sports teams are starting to use it with their players. Like on hockey, the Dallas Stars, the Philadelphia Flyers. And even the Washington Redskins. So those are just some of the teams that are starting to incorporating this into their training route. This isn't going to be for the couch potato that wants to just get motivated. This is for people who are serious about really meeting their fitness goals and getting better. For cnet, I'm Bridget Cary with you first look at the push armband.
