Hygear, a smart fitness equipment maker that launched in 2020, has introduced a smart jump rope that can give users real-time feedback. The Hyrope can be paired with the company’s official app to keep track of the user’s number of jumps, speed, pace and calories burned. Hygear’s app selects the interactive workouts to track based on their fitness goals and uses AI technology to adjust them based on actual performance.
While gyms have reopened in the last few months after the coronavirus restrictions were eased, some may still choose to keep exercising at home. After all, a lot of people bought expensive equipment last year in the middle of the pandemic and may have gotten used to watching video workouts from the growing number of digital fitness subscriptions. Hyrope may have been a little late in the game, but it could still find its audience with those who now prefer to exercise at home or who are just looking for a convenient exercise tool that they can take with them wherever they go.
The company says it chose to introduce Hyrope because “mixing cardio and strength training is one of the best and most effective ways to burn calories for weight loss,” and jumping rope “is excellent cardio activity that is based on limited space can be carried out “. “Hyrope is available on pre-sale now for $ 39. It comes with the device itself and a one-year membership in the Hygear app. The jump rope starts with a 90-day weight loss program accessible through the app, and that Company is also rolling out 45- and 60-day cardio programs in the coming weeks.
