Startup GestureLogic Wants to Put Current Fitness Trackers to Shame with Advanced Wearable Tech

Posted by Rob Lewis

Hailing from Ottawa, the crowdfunded LEO is "the only wearable device with true fitness intelligence," claims the Canadian company.

LEO integrates biosignal monitoring technology with the capabilities standard best fitness wearables to measure muscle activity, heart rate, lactic acid, hydration, technique, and more.

"Using intelligent sensing, LEO extracts complex biosignals directly from your body, providing an unparalleled level of insight into your physiology and performance," the company behind the project, GestureLogic, explains. "LEO refines this knowledge into simple recommendations and notifications for people of all skill levels, while still providing the raw numbers for detailed analysis."

 

 

Current devices track their own movement, says GestureLogic, and use that to estimate what you are doing. ("Try putting an activity tracker on a bumpy washing machine or throwing it down a flight of stairs—you’ll be amazed at how many calories you’ve burned," the Ottawa startup quips.) LEO actually monitors you, understanding the difference between a living breathing human being and a washing machine.

The campaign, which is off to a very promising start, offers a leg band, an app, and cloud server access. So far LEO has raised $22,000 of $50,000 with 40 days left.
