Oregon Scientific Targets Women With Gaiam Fitness Trainers
We’ve long known Oregon Scientific as an alarm clock and thermometer company. But in recent time they’ve expanded into the health category.
Yesterday, they launched 3 new products geared towards women, at least that is what their PR rep said, though I suppose they could be worn by any gender.
The Gaiam Fitness Trainer 2.0 is a $100 wrist watch that reads your heart rate without a chest strap. It also displays the time, calendar and includes a “tap on lens” that toggles through each mode.
For an additional $10 you can pick up the Gaiam Zone Trainer 3.0, which is essentially the same as the aforementioned device, but includes a chest strap with wireless heart rate monitor for more accurate heart rate readings.
Last but not least is the Gaiam Calorie Coach G1, a fancy smancy pedometer for just $40. In addition to a digital read out, it measures you calories burned, steps taken and can store up to 7 days of walking data.
