Moov launched its first fitness tracker a little over a year ago, and now the company’s back with a new model called MOOV NOW.
The wearable fitness tracker can monitor a lot more than your steps, and the updated version is smaller, offers longer battery life, and has other improvements.
You can pre-order the MOOV NOW for $60, which is $40 off the eventual retail price.
The MOOV NOW lasts up to 6 months on a charge, thanks to a non-rechargeable watch battery. It’s also available in a range of colors. The new model can also work with third-party heart rate monitors.
And even at full retail price, it’s cheaper than its predecessor, which sold for $150.
What really sets MOOV’s devices apart from the competition are the ways it can monitor a range of activities and pair with a smartphone app to basically act as a digital coach: strap it to your ankle when you’re running or cycling and it can provide tips about your stride or motivation to reach your goals. Put it on your wrist while you’re swimming and it can offer advice then too (since it’s waterproof).
You can also use two MOOV NOW units at once: Put one on each arm, for instance, and it can do a better job of tracking your movements while swimming or cardio boxing. The full retail price for 2 units will be $198, but you can pre-order a 2-pack for $100 or get 3 or more for $50 each.
