Atlas
www.atlaswearables.com

Atlas is a wearable watch that tracks your daily fitness routine. What makes Atlas a standout among other fitness watch products is its extreme sensitivity. Atlas is able to detect your workouts with such precision that it can tell the difference between a regular push-up and a triangular push-up. Once the type of exercise has been identified, Atlas starts counting reps and then logs them on their mobile or web app for future reference. Not only can Atlas detect the type of exercise easily but it has also been programmed so that it can sense the weight input of each exercise without any manual effort, making weight resistance tracking a breeze. Atlas also monitors your heart rate and tells you what cardiovascular zone you are in all the time. This is helpful for workouts involving many repetitions because Atlas will suggest the best moment to start your next set based on your heart rate. Programmed Bluetooth smart and with a micro USB connector Atlas is the fitness watch to watch out for this Christmas 2014.
