It’s already hard to surprise anyone with smart shoes, however, the developers of Altra Running presented their Altra IQ sneakers, which should be appreciated by fitness fans and athletes.
The model is designed with an eye on professionals.
Built-in sensors record the contact force of the feet and heels with the road surface, the contact area, the rhythm of movement, the number of steps taken, the distance traveled, as well as many other parameters. The collected data in real time is transmitted to the smartphone in the proprietary iFit application, which allows you to quickly adjust the technique of walking or running.
Synchronization with mobile devices is via Bluetooth LE.
Any gadgets running iOS and Android are supported, including chronometers. Sneakers have protection against water, so long walks in the rain they are not afraid of. The start of sales is scheduled for next spring. Estimated cost of the Altra IQ is $ 199.99.
