LAS VEGAS--Fitness gear and wearable tech are one of the burgeoning trends of this year's CES, and Fitbug was at the CES Unveiled press event previewing scale, heart rate, and blood-pressure monitoring gadgets.
The Fitbug Orb is a $49 wearable device with both clip-on and watchband attachments, competing in an increasingly crowded space. It uses the same technology and infrastructure as Fitbug's other wearable tech including the Fitbug Air, and works with the iPhone 5, 4S, fifth-gen iPod Touch, third-gen iPads and higher, and the Samsung Galaxy S3. Bonus: it has an "underwear clip" for discrete wearing while wearing dresses or other sheer clothing. It'll be available this spring.
The Fitbug Luv is a blood-pressure monitor that supports recent iOS devices (iPhone 5/4S, fifth-gen Touch, third/fourth-gen iPad and Mini), and will be available the second quarter of 2013. It'll be competing with Withing's iOS-connected blood pressure monitor that's already on the market.
Finally, the Fitbug Wow scale Bluetooth-connects with the same batch of iOS devices and costs $79.99, and will also be hitting around the same time frame.
All devices work together in one ecosystem -- a part of mobile health tech that seems to be a big part of the equation lately.
