The next time you work out, whether you’re running a 10K or hitting up the ski slopes, take some audible encouragement along with MotionLingo’s ADEO Fitness Companion — the first device of its kind to announce statistics such as your speed, distance, time, elevation and/or calories burned out loud. The product can be used alone or connected to an MP3 player like the Apple iPod or Dell DJ to allow updates to be delivered right along with the music.
Slightly smaller than an iPod, this talking fitness buddy continuously collects workout data utilizing embedded GPS technology and then audibly shares the results at intervals of the user’s choice. This enables users to hear real-time workout progress reports while engaging in visually intensive sports such as skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking without risk of injury or loss of focus. Different voices are available to suit different tastes, moods or sports.
The result: safer, more meaningful and more entertaining workouts, whether you’re a pro athlete, walker, runner, cyclist, or winter sports enthusiast.
Once the workout is complete, statistics can be uploaded directly to a PC or Mac by plugging the ADEO into the computer’s USB port. MotionLingo’s MotionTrack software, which is included in the package, can then be used to compare current and past workouts. Users can add workout-specific comments, graph performance results, track shoe mileage, and even check weather conditions from past sessions based on time and location. The software also is used to set update preferences and upload voices.
Users also have free access to a complete workout support system on the MotionLingo.com website, including the ability to plot an aerial view of any workout, set training goals and monitor progress toward those goals. The site includes sport specific communities, a contact manager, blogs, and user forums.
MotionLingo’s ADEO Fitness Companion retails for $149.99.
