The contents of a gym bag are often predictable – a towel, a chilled energy drink and maybe a wrist or leg guard or two. But now you can add PowerDot to your accessories, the world’s first wearable connected muscle stimulator that can be used anytime and anywhere from your smartphone.
Developed by a local company Smartmissimo Technologies, PowerDot uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), cleverly mimicking what your brain does when it transmits nerve impulses to engage your muscles during a workout. Your stamina in the gym can get a major lift, with better endurance resulting in a firmer, taut body.
With its bluetooth enabled capabilities and support for both Android/iOS, gym junkies will find that workouts can easily be activated with just a mere tap on the mobile phone, to add that jolt of energy and aid in muscle recovery. This trusty buddy can be hidden underneath your business attire and work its magic during office hours, just in time for the evening’s cardio training!
Priced at $239, the lightweight PowerDot is a formidable device easy on the pocket, both figuratively and literally. It is also a breeze to activate for repairing and prepping your body for the next intensity workout.
PowerDot will be available from May 2015 at $239 – Challenger, Courts, Epicenter, Newstead Technologies and selected retailers.
