UNITY™, the world’s most advanced console, is an open platform that integrates with third party apps including Google Glass
Equipment, Mobile and Technology Converge to Create Seamless Transition for Consumer Physical Activity, Inside and Outside the Gym
Technogym will be showing at the CES 2015, from January 6th to the 9th in Las Vegas at Booth 74125 at the Sands Expo, Tech West, Level 2. Technogym will be focusing on its mywellness platform and how it fully integrates into the Technogym ecosystem.
Technogym’s mywellness cloud is a revolutionary new open platform that allows wellness enthusiasts to measure and aggregate all of the data surrounding their physical activities, both inside the gym and out, along with their daily movements and their evolving body measurements. With the mywellness cloud, consumers can manage their workouts in the gym (in concert with Technogym equipment & UNITY™ consoles), outdoors on their mobile devices, at home via personal computers or Technogym home equipment, on holiday or wherever they train, for a truly personalized and seamless wellness experience.
All of this ladders up to Technogym’s “Wellness on the Go” philosophy, which is at the heart of everything that Technogym strives to achieve from a technological, lifestyle and holistic standpoint.
Made possible by the UNITY console - the Android-based display for cardio equipment that allows users to customize the information and entertainment options on Technogym cardio equipment, much like you customize the screen on your mobile devices – in combination with Technogym’s mywellness app - which stores physical activity in the mywellness cloud on a variety of devices - Technogym provides a fully integrated personal health and fitness system for everyday use on the mywellness cloud.
All of these components are integral parts of the Technogym Ecosystem, the first integrated system that incorporates interconnected equipment, services, content and programs.
Through the mobility and interconnectedness inherent in all these products, fitness facilities can now offer their members “Wellness on the Go” packages and connect with them on Technogym equipment anywhere in the world, whether inside or outside of the gym.
“We believe in providing our clients with the best fitness experience, regardless of whether they are in the gym or not,” said Nerio Alessandri, President and Founder, Technogym. “The mywellness cloud solely exists to promote a holistic fitness lifestyle amongst consumers and make it easier for them to fully realize their training potential through our integrated technology platforms and partnerships with some of the top health and fitness apps today.”
To connect consumers to their health regimens and personal habits, Technogym has brokered partnerships with key technology apps and products so that personal health and workout information will be seamless across multiple platforms.
Technogym’s mywellness cloud can now be integrated with a suite of popular products, including Fitbit, MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal, Polar, RunKeeper, Strava, Withings and Garmin.
Furthermore, Technogym has created MyRunning Logbook, a revolutionary new feature in the ecosystem designed particularly for casual and hardcore running enthusiasts. With MyRunning Logbook, consumers can track any of their outdoor runs using their favorite mobile training device, such as RunKeeper, MapMyFitness, Strava, Polar, and Garmin, and make it available to replicate on any Technogym treadmills with the Unity console.
With this technology, users can fully recreate the outdoor runs indoors, including intervals, pace and speed, which is a perfect for runners who want to improve on their daily runs, or for those training for a marathon for example.
