Geekery Announces a Kickstarter Campaign for Skiper - the First Smart Jump Rope With Music and Personal Training Features
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, March 15, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Geekery, a company of experienced sports equipment engineers have taken a new approach to an old classic – the jump rope. Adding intelligent features and modern tech they have created an entirely new exercise experience for rope skipping training.
Training with a jump rope has long been considered one of the most convenient and efficient workout techniques. Not only is it a great tool for weight loss but it has proven advantages such as improvement of coordination and balance for sports, greater cardiovascular efficiency for health, and benefits for bone density. The Skiper team wanted to create a product that encouraged healthy lifestyles but also added fun and convenience to exercise.
Skiper looks like a regular jump rope but its modest exterior hides high-tech goodies and practical features. The device uses a built-in 360-degree smart motion sensor along with a Bluetooth module and the FITMIX APP to record activity and create a customized exercise plan for its user. This precise analysis of activity and data lets users realize their sports potential and achieve fitness goals faster.
With the included Personal Trainer smart feature, Skiper can provide a standard or customized workout plan to help achieve goals faster and it also includes the ability to invite family and friends to fitness challenges. Fitness goals are easy to set up and Skiper records accurate data and tracks progress conveniently by smartphone.
The Skiper training system also allows users to share their workouts, goals and achievements on Facebook and Twitter, a well-known method for positive feedback and exercise accountability. It also makes workouts fun with built-in speakers and Bluetooth streaming of music to power and motivates exercise sessions.
Although Skiper is packed with tech power it’s still a piece of sports equipment and because of that it is built to last. It uses an 8-strand knitted metal wire encased in silicone as a flexible and durable, tangle-free core that can handle years exercise training. The team spent a great deal of time on the design and it shows in the comfortable ergonomics and smooth functionality. It’s waterproof and workout ready anywhere, anytime.
Proving that innovation can add value to any product, the clever Skiper jump rope is one of the first smart products to hit the sports market and has garnered interest and accolades from casual users to professional trainers during beta testing. Now Skiper is available for pre-sale to the public with special pricing for Kickstarter backers.
