The market for fitness trackers seems to be filled with lots of pedometers disguised as fitness trackers. Sure they can count steps, calories burned and miles ran, but can they tell you if you’re doing a work out correctly? The Atlas Fitness Tracker can! The Indiegogo project aims to be the “ultimate fitness tracker” since it actually tracks and identifies your different actives, can evaluate your form, counts your reps and sets, calculates calories burned and more. The wrist device is so precise that it can tell the difference between push-ups and triangle push-ups, bicep curls and alternating bicep curls and more. It can log your workout with practically zero human interaction and will keep track of your heart rate so you can easily see how each exercise affects your body to maximize results.
