Moov – Multi-Sport Fitness Coach
There are lots of fitness bands that track walking and running, but the Moov Multi-Sport Fitness Coach and Tracker does just what its name suggests, tracks and coaches movement in running, swimming, biking and cardio boxing. The Moov is made to strap to your ankle and is dustproof and waterproof.
Rather than being just a tracker, Moov is a trainer who wants to help you improve, giving real time advice as you work out. Moov tracks your stride, cadence (steps per minute), and impact with the ground and helping the runner to improve and reduce the risk of injury.
Moov starts with the app asking questions and then suggesting a level for your training session. The session starts after a five minute warmup, and then the fun begins. For example, if you tell the app that you want to run an 8 minute mile, it will tell you to speed up or slow down to keep you on pace.
It will also suggest, “swing your arms faster”, “straighten your back”, and if you do slow to a walk, will ask if everything is okay. If you fail to make your goal, Moov will suggest an easier level. There are 46 levels, so it is easy to find one that is a good fit for every activity level.
Moov is now in its second generation with Moov Now available for preorder. The improvements are great. It is about a third of its original size and the band is much better. The app has all the different sports in one app rather than a different app for each sport.
The downside to Moov and Moov Now is that it needs your phone for coaching and GPS tracking. Also, you have to wear headphones of some kind to get the coaching. The coaches voice is robotic, and can be annoying when you are tired and trying to finish a workout.
Overall, the Moov and Moov Now are some of the best fitness band, especially if you do multiple sports and want the help of a coach.
