iFit® introduces its wearable iFit® Active band and features an internet–connected treadmill and stationary bike at booth #25933 in the Fitness Tech Zone at the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall #2. The online press kit is here.
iFit technology is a leader in The Internet of Things, with iFit on internet-connected treadmills, stationary bikes and ellipticals. Consumers draw their own map, then watch Google Street View on the treadmill's tablet console. Runners feel the road when iFit technology automatically adjusts the treadmill's incline and decline to match the geo-tags in the map. @iFit booth #25933 #InternetOfThings (Photo: Business Wire)
The iFit® booth has two mega-trends at the Consumer Electronic Association forecasts for 2014: Wearable fitness and the Internet of Things. The CEA predicts the market for personal health and wellness products to grow 142% by 2018 to $8 billion. Running, walking and treadmill activity are the top three participation activities in the 2013 Tracking the Fitness Movement, published by the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA).
At the iFit® booth, CES showgoers can ride the internet-connected ProForm Tour De France bike and run on the ProForm Boston Marathon treadmill to experience iFit® in person, including watching Google Street View™ as the fitness equipment inclines and declines to match the geo-tags in a mapped route.
iFit’s complete approach to fitness has expanded to an entirely new way to work out: with Internet-connected fitness equipment, mobile apps and now wearable devices.
iFit® is the first-ever technology to unify your fitness activities at home, in the club and outside, all with a single login. With more than 15 million miles logged on fitness equipment in 2013, iFit® technology is continually growing and evolving to create the most interactive workout experience possible.
iFit® technology is covered by 22 patents and has several patents pending. iFit® is a registered trademark of ICON Health & Fitness, the world leading fitness innovator. ICON is based in Logan, Utah. For more on ICON, click here. The online press kit is here.
