Technogym launches Google Glass controlled treadmill

Technogym launches Google Glass controlled treadmill
January 15, 2014

Leading technology-driven fitness equipment supplier Technogym showcased the first Google Glass controlled treadmill at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 in Las Vegas, USA last week, giving Show attendees the opportunity to interact with the treadmill using Google glasses and provide feedback on their training through the glasses lenses.

Thanks to the brand new UNITY technology, the android-based console display platform for cardio training equipment, Technogym equipment is open to any app or third party device. The features are designed to provide each user with a fully personalised experience on their personal training program, data and favorite entertainment options.

UNITY is part of the 'Wellness on the Go' initiative, that allows users to engage and connect with others on any piece of Technogym equipment, anywhere in the world. Moreover UNITY is the first and only console in the fitness industry that offers users the ability to communicate with their personal trainer or friends via webcam.

Explaining the technological advance, Technogym President and Founder Nerio Alessandri advised "with the look and feel of a tablet, Technogym's UNITY console offers a revolutionary, interactive training experience.

"It provides users with a personalised training program, favourite apps, TV programs, and entertainment and it's open to any third party app and device, like Google Glass or the many movement tracking devices."

UNITY is fully integrated within the Technogym Ecosystem; it is the first united system in the fitness industry comprised of equipment, services, and programs that connect to an overall platform mywellness cloud.

UNITY is an Android 4.0 open API platform with apps available in the Technogym App Store, a place where fitness and wellness operators and global app developers can connect. UNITY is already compatible with MapMyFitness, RunKeeper, and Withings the leading mobile fitness and lifestyle tracking apps providing users with real time connectivity.
