UA Band™: A sleek sport band packed with advanced technologies in a uniquely adaptive form-fitting design.
The UA Band fitness tracker, which tracks steps, distance, resting heart rate and sleep, is the latest entrant into the activity monitor market populated by the likes of Fitbit, Jawbone and the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) Watch.
UA Heart Rate, as the name suggests, is a sensor for detecting your heart rate during workouts.
Under Armour also hinted at employing machine learning tools to mine data and to provide useful insights back to users, maybe helping some loose weight.
Health and fitness management can be a challenge but HTC and Under Armour are set to deliver an easy solution in the form of this UA HealthBox. It is now available for pre-order, with an official release on January 22 in the U.S.
The first item included in the Healthbox is the UA Band fitness tracker.
Finally, HTC and Under Armour's partnership has yielded results.
"This system contains everything a consumer needs to better manage their health and fitness", said Wolfgang Muller, Executive Director - Connected Products, HTC. UA HealthBox will roll out internationally throughout 2016. Under Armour has identified four key "pillars" for athletes - fitness, activity, nutrition and sleep - and it has created a multi-device solution that covers all the bases.
More and more, if you use your smartphone to track fitness goals, you run into Under Armour. One feature I particularly like is how the display is completely hidden when not in use. The company is also making two headphones, including one that can measure heart rate at the ear. The UA Band comes in black with a red textured underside to allow for moisture wicking. Under Armour and HTC will sell the fitness tracker, scale, and chest strap separately as well-$180 each for the UA Band and Scale, $80 for the heart rate strap-but there are certainly cheaper devices in each category from other reputable brands. The chest strap and removable sensor help individuals monitor intensity during their training and calculate calories burned. UA Record is powered by the Under Armour Connected Fitness™ API/SDK platform (developer.underarmour.com), an open platform with more than 400 partner apps and devices. It has a metallic finish that looks svelte, a display that alerts you of your weight, body fat percentage, how many more pounds you need to lose until you hit your goal and more. Unlike many smart scales that are already available in the market today, HTC's offering is a bit different as it stores data of up to eight users and syncs every information with UA Record app. It tracks daily activity, workouts and sleep.
"For 20 years, Under Armour has changed the way athletes dress, and now we will change the way athletes live", Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank said in the announcement. Under Armour hopes to leverage its acquisition of apps like MapMyFitness and MyFitnessPal, while HTC is desperately attempting to spread its business chops beyond its shaky smartphone ventures.
