InBody Band puts body composition at your fingertips


Now you can measure your body fat, muscle mass and so much more anytime, anywhere. 


It was nearly impossible to walk around the CES 2015 show floor without coming across some sort of fitness tracker or smartwatch. In such a competitive market, companies are continually looking for new ways to differentiate themselves from the wearable pack. And, while a vast majority of fitness trackers let you monitor caloric intake, steps and sleeping habits, a new gadget has set out to measure a user’s body composition as well.

BodyBand

Recently launched on Kickstarter, the InBody Band is a snap-on device that features a simple touchscreen display and four sensors located on its front and back. Users simply place their fingers on the front-facing sensors and, combined with the data from your wrist, retrieve a reading in just seconds. The wearable uses a series of electronic pulses, and some proprietary algorithms, to analyze metrics such as muscle mass index and body fat percentage, while simultaneously clocking heart rate and tracking movement with the aid of its built-in 3D accelerometer.

Like other smart bands available today, the device can monitor real-time activity and sleep habits, as well as help set specific goals to achieve. Furthermore, the InBody Band is capable of distinguishing between walking and running, thus providing more precise information and feedback on your daily routine. It is also water-resistant enough to withstand some hand-washing or a quick shower even, however is not recommended for the pool or any other aquatic activities.
