If you’re like many people, one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2013 was to get in better shape. You’re in luck.
Among the estimated 20,000 new products that were expected to debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week (source), a number of companies – LG, Withings, Jawbone, BodyMedia, Fitbit, Nike, Basis – unveiled either entirely new or updated new wearable fitness gadgets.
LG and Withings, for example, each released their own Smart Activity Tracker at this year’s event (source). Withings separates itself from Nike and LG by featuring a heart rate monitor on the back of the device. The company is also promoting the Smart Body Analyzer, which will help people “live and sleep in a healthier environment” because of its ability to track temperature and carbon dioxide levels (source).
BodyMedia has proclaimed the Core 2 as “the smallest health tracker ‘of its kind’” (source). The size of a quarter, it’s been “designed to fit in a number of fashion-oriented interchangeable straps and cuffs” (source).
We predicted in our January 2013 newsletter that the notion of the “quantified self” would become mainstream this year. Perhaps one or several of the products talked about at CES will lead the way.
