LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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.
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.
