Putting Under Armour Gemini 2 Fitness Tracker Sneakers to the Test | Mashable CES 2016


So many CES attendees are wearing
wristband trackers on their wrist to keep track of how much they’re walking
all around Las Vegas. But my wrists are wristband-tracker free. But, that’s only because I’m wearing them on my feet. These are Under Armour’s Gemini 2 sneakers. They have tiny sensors built into the bottom of the shoe that connect to an app. Whenever you walk, it tracks how far you’ve walked, calories burned, anything that a traditional fitness tracker would do. The shoes store up to five runs, so if you’re not bringing your phone with you, you can transmit all that data later on. One really great feature of the app is it tracks the life cycle of the shoe. Under Armour says you can get about 450 miles on the shoe before it needs replacing. The battery life is pretty decent too, in fact, Under Armour says it will outlast the shoe. So if you’re going for a run or if you’re walking around like everyone else behind me, why not
just wear your fitness tracker right on your feet.

  1. Now this is practical smart. Simplicity while technologically advanced. Ugly is relative, hope they improve the tech.
