There are plenty of smart wearables on the market. Not all of them are designed for athletes. Mbody is different. It is a muscle load tracking technology that helps you better monitor your workouts. It monitors your muscle load, heart rate, cadence to help you improve your performance. You also get real-time audio coaching. The Mbody Coach provides you with useful information such as muscle performance, overload warnings, and training instructions.
The Mbody Coach features training zone analysis, lactate threshold level, and information on recovery, technique, fatigue, and efficiency. You can analyze your exercises after you are done and even share your data to your favorite social networking site. Here are the parameters Mbody covers:
- muscle load
- muscle relaxation
- heart rate
- muscle coordination
- muscle profile
- Quads/Hams ratio
The Mbody Coach consists of MShorts for runners, MCell recorder, and an app. The MCell is lightweight and equipped with a 3D accelerometer, LED indicators, Bluetooth, built-in memory, and a rechargeable battery. MShorts have textile sensors, a UV resistant 3D-elastic fabric, and a flat seam construction.
The kit is expected to be compatible with iOS and Android devices. You can get it on Kickstarter.
