SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aleda and Jonathan Schaffer, co-founders of PureCarbon, a wearable fitness technology company, announced the first availability of the Delta™ Gloves on Indiegogo. The proprietary smart gloves track strength training workouts and provide feedback to help users achieve their fitness goals. Through Indiegogo, PureCarbon hopes to raise $50,000 to bridge the fitness tracking divide for strength training with the Delta Gloves. Early adopters will enjoy a discounted rate of $99 while supplies last. Following the launch, the Delta Gloves will be available on the PureCarbon website for $199.
“Indiegogo is the ideal platform to launch this groundbreaking wearable fitness technology,” said PureCarbon CEO and co-founder Jonathan Schaffer. The market has long been in need of the Delta Gloves for fitness enthusiasts of all levels - from users who lift every week to those just starting out.”
Workout guidance from PureCarbon’s free app offers in-ear rep counts, exercise identification and tips on form. Whether at the gym or at home, users can choose curated workouts through the app, or use freestyle mode to create and track their own. The platform allows shareable data with friends or a personal trainer.
The Delta Glove’s patented and proprietary SoftSense™ technology enhances strength training by providing an accurate power output through printed pressure sensors in the glove’s palm and fingertips that detect weight when combined with exercise data from The Delta™ Puck. Powering the device, the Intel Curie Module has a dual core processor, neural network, accelerometer and gyroscope.
PureCarbon will eventually offer online trainers to customize workouts and additional wearable products for tracking different activities and athletic pursuits, enabling users to make the most out of every workout.
