New fitness device Moov aims to coach instead of merely track

03/01, 12:30pm

Device aims to instruct on form, efficiency and help avoid injury

A new fitness device that acts more like a fitness coach and less like a tracker is looking to change how a workout is approached by offering more than just numbers. The Moov, created by a team that boasts a former Apple engineer and a pair of Microsoft researchers, uses a smartphone connection to instruct users on how to improve their workout rather than merely quantifying it.

Mio enters tablet arena with Moov V780

Mio V780 borders on GPS, MID, tablet arenas

Mio today helped kick off CeBIT by launching an unusual crossover device. The Moov V780 offers the customary GPS navigation but carries a 7-inch, 800x480 display that turns it into a media tablet. It touts a web browser with Flash support as well as Exchange-capable e-mail, multi-touch capable music and photo browsers, and a dedicated YouTube client. A relatively fast 600MHz processor and graphics give it enough power to decode 720p video at native resolution through an HDMI output.

Mio Moov S401 S501 for US

Mio today upgraded its Moov GPS units with a pair of large-screen but low-cost models. Falling in line with a late rumor, the S401 and S501 both have Mio's more recent Spirit user interface, which brings both clearer navigation and unique tricks such as "docking" point of interest searches for quicker access, mixed-term keyword searches and the ability to memorize certain routes and places for later. Owners can also convert locations from Google Maps on a computer to a GPS-friendly format.

Mio Moov S401 and S501

Mio is preparing to launch another set of navigation devices in the North American market, the S401 and S501, as indicated by leaked images posted on Engadget. The S401 offers a 4.1-inch touchscreen and four million loaded POIs. The S501 variant features a larger 4.7-inch display paired with 12 million POIs. Both navigation devices run on the company's Spirit interface, with a side-screen feature that allows users to slide out of view by dragging off-screen to view other POIs or maps. A capture button records favorite routes, locations or voice memos.

Mio intros Moov GPS units on US shores

Mio Moov for US

Quickly following its European launches earlier this month, Mio today launched its Moov GPS units in US-friendly versions. The 3.5-inch Moov 200/210 and 4.3-inch Moov 300/310 are the first Mio navigators to include Mio's own mapping software and also integrate SiRF's newest InstantFixII receivers to provide a fix in as little as five seconds -- an important factor in downtown driving where a dropped update means a missed turn, Mio claims. Both Moovs also provide text-to-speech conversion to speak street names and come preloaded with maps of the entire US and Puerto Rico.
