Adidas has today unveiled a new wearable fitness tracker that has been created in the form of the Adidas ZONE, that has been specifically designed to help young students stay fit and healthy during physical education classes in school.
The wrist worn wearable fitness tracker is equipped with a heart rate monitor that uses cloud technology to share the students personal fitness data with teachers. Enabling teachers to tailor workouts to individual students rather than use a one size suits all approach.
Adidas explains that the ZONE Britain’s tracker has been created to provide schools with an alternative solution to track individual students health and can also offer NFC synchronisation technologies as well as providing enough memory and power to last a busy school schedule, say Adidas. Jen Ohlson, co-founder and president of Interactive Health Technologies explains more about the new device and the IHT Spirit System :
During the 2015 school year, 600,000 children were connected to the IHT Spirit System, a 140 percent increase in student engagement year over year. With the help of the new Adidas ZONE for IHT Spirit, IHT is on track to hit their 2016 target of daily interactions with one million students nationwide.
