Popular fitness apparel brand Under Armour has launched a health and performance application called UA Record. They officially announced it at CES 2015, and I had to stop by and see what the app was all about.
The application will allow you to track your activity, log workouts, challenge others with their social component and more.
“UA Record offers everyone of all fitness levels the ability to proactively manage their health and fitness,” said Kevin Plank, Founder and CEO, Under Armour. “By syncing the thousands of fitness tracking devices and apps onto its open platform, and creating a visual dashboard of your data, UA Record is a simple and empowering tool designed to help people lead healthier and more active lives.”
Data features include motion and GPS activity tracking from mobile sensors and third party devices, analysis from individual workouts and a total snapshot of your progress – including steps, sleep, caloric burn, heart rate and weight.
Members can invite up to 20 friends within their network to compete in customized health and fitness challenges centered on specific goals. Challenges are based on workout count, total distance, total steps and calories burned. These daily, weekly or monthly competitions provide real-time updates, leaderboard progress and an open conversation forum for group participants.
The ability to share content, such as videos, photos and workout stories is built into the app along with access to original content on nutrition, training methodologies, injury prevention and more directly from leading health and fitness experts.’
