CES 2015: The InBody Band fitness tracker also analyses body composition

Fitness trackers are all the rage these days, but don’t you think they should focus a little less on what your activity is and more on what it does to you as an individual? That’s what the InBody Band is here for.

InBody is a company that specialises in machines that analyse body composition, and it’s introduced the world to the InBody Band — that same tech shrunk down to a portable scale. This allows users to more insight into their state of well-being and how their exercise affects their body without having to resort to using bulky cumbersome machinery to find out.

The InBody band does comes with the basic features you’d expect from any fitness tracker like heart-rate monitoring, sleep quality, and how many steps you take. But the key here is that it will also let you track data like body fat mass, metabolic rate, and total body water. Oh and it’s all done automatically, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Plus, like any good wearable, it syncs to your iOS or Android smartphone to offer call and text notifications, as well as ranking users’ data against each other and introducing a competitive aspect to their exercise.

InBody has been showing off the InBody Band at CES 2015, and while pricing and availability has yet to be announced we’ll let you know when more information is available.
