Late last week I took a look at Moov and its cycling app for Android. I had a few things to critique about the unit (which isn't unusual), like its inability to connect with external heart rate monitors. It appears that Moov was already working on something that would fix essentially everything I found "wrong" with the first one, because it just announced MOOV NOW, and it looks like it'll be better in basically every way. Here are just a few things it can do over the existing model:

Features and Benefits of MOOV NOW™:

  • Customizable: MOOV NOW™ is available in Stealth Black, Blizzard White, Aqua Blue and Fusion Red colors.
  • Social features: ‘Connect and Compete’ allows you to share your workout progress with friends, family and other Moov community members.
  • Activity tracking: Stand-alone daily activity and sleep tracking to monitor activity levels throughout the day.
  • Seamless suite of workout programs and levels: MOOV NOW™ is compatible with the original 10+ programs and 200+ variations and levels of Run & Walk, Swimming, Cycling, Cardio Boxing and 7 Minutes+ Workout apps, plus more workouts such as Spinning, Bikini Body, Tabata will be continuously added into the Moov app.
  • Affordable: Compared to competitor models that charge upwards of $150, MOOV NOW™ costs just $59.99 for a limited time, making advanced coaching more accessible.

It also has a six-month battery life, which is a huge benefit for a device that's meant to be an always-on wearable that tracks both steps and sleep. Another huge benefit of MOOV NOW is its support for third-party heart rate monitors.

For right now, you can pre-order MOOV NOW for just $60, or get two units (which increases accuracy during swimming and cardio boxing) for $99 - nearly half the price of the original. Personally, I can't wait to get my hands on a pair. You can find more info at the link below.

Press Release

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – July 16, 2015 - Steps, calories, and the prescribed hours of sleep are all well and good, but can a fitness wearable actually push you harder and to your peak performance? Moov believes so, and is the first wearable that provides real-time feedback with actionable insight into every workout so that you not only know the number of miles you’ve run, but how to improve every movement.

 

Dubbed the “Siri of Sweat” when they launched the world’s first AI-powered fitness device in 2014, Moov smashed crowdfunding records by attracting $1 million in just two weeks. Starting today, MOOV NOW™  is available for pre-order with the most advanced technology yet, six month battery life, third party heart rate monitor integration and a sleeker design.

 

The company’s latest and greatest wearable not only tracks your activity and form while you’re exercising, but also provides real-time audio and visual guidance through workouts. When you’re running, MOOV NOW™ tells you when to land softer, shorten your stride, or pick up the pace. With a brand new design, smaller size, unparalleled battery life, and suite of premiere workout apps available in one master app experience, you barely even notice that it’s there. Simply strap it on your wrist or ankle, throw in your headphones, and kick-off your ass-kicking workout.

MOOV NOW™ goes beyond basic data, and coaches users through every swim, run, training session and more,” said Meng Li, co-founder and CEO of Moov. “We’ve amassed over a year’s worth of data for even more precise and intelligent workout analysis, and we’re excited to introduce MOOV NOW™ as the next level of personal training.”
