    While many devices are focused on fitness "tracking," Moov has catapulted into a different arena: fitness coaching. Moov is a highly accurate, lightweight Bluetooth 3D-motion sensor that is worn on your wrist or ankle. When paired with one of Moov's free downloadable apps, it becomes a personal trainer that will correct your form, encourage you to run harder, and even teach you how to throw a proper punch. Unlike any other wearable fitness tool, Moov not only tracks your workouts, it also improves their quality, because the feedback is based on real-time analysis of your performance. We have found the apps to be not only highly accurate but also addicting! Each app is a different workout or sport (Run & Walk, Swim, Cardio Punch, 7 Minute Workout, Cycling) and each has increasing goals for subsequent workouts.

    The device itself currently costs $70; for a superior Cardio Punch experience, 2 devices are recommended. The apps are free and available for both iOS and Android.
