New Fitness Tracker Helps Athletes Push Their Limits at the Gym When you're lifting weights and not sure you can do one more rep, it either means that you can still do 10 more — or that you're putting yourself at risk for injury. In fact, there's a trend in exercise science towards prescribing a velocity of weight lifting rather than a number of reps, as it allows for optimal workload but still lets the body recover between trainings or competitions. But you can't log velocity with a pen and paper. PUSH, a wearable fitness gadget that launched on Indiegogo last week, will retail at $149 and is the first device to measure strength marketed to consumers (i.e., affordable).

Five Best Fitness Tracking Appliances I have one, and I can say it's epic as long as you pair it with a heart rate monitor. I paired mine with Garmin's heart rate monitor, but Polar should work too (any ANT+ fitness device will pair). The real bread and butter for the MotoACTV comes from tracking performance via heart rate. You can play music through the device's headphone jack during a workout - it measures your performance via heart rate and pairs that up with the music that is playing. Later, when you have the music playing in a shuffle mix, if your performance drops it will "shuffle" to a song that you have historically done well on. I think of it like detecting when you're slowing down and playing a song to pump you back up for the workout.
