Gesture controlled fitness experience for runners

Posted by on May 30, 2011 in Conceptual, Sports Tech | No Comments

Designer Adrien Guenette has envisioned a wearable experience aimed to help runners control their music through simple gestures during their run. “Technology is at its best when it feels completely natural.” Guenette says. The concept includes a fitness watch called the “beat watch” that pairs your music with your performance stats to help motivate you to perform better. Additional accessories that wirelessly communicate to the watch detects stride, heart rate and gestures that allow you to control the music.

I’m not a huge fan of having too many accessories during my work out, but the idea of controlling the experience hands-free through simple gestures is very appealing.
