Fitness Tech Companies Made Strong Showing at CES 2016

Several IHRSA Associate Members exhibited in Las Vegas last week at CES 2016—one of the biggest events in the tech and gadget world. Health and fitness companies took center stage at the conference’s Fitness & Technology Marketplace, which featured appearances by Michael Phelps, Tony Romo, Nastia Liukin, and Tony Gonzalez.

Here are some of the IHRSA Associate Member highlights from the CES exhibit hall.  

MyZone showed off its MyZone Moves heart-rate tracker and its MyZone Sports Bra. But perhaps the most exciting moment was when Shaq stopped by their booth.

Technogym unveiled its new music interactive treadmill, which automatically chooses songs based on the user’s number of steps per minute taken.

Life Fitness invited conference-goers to try out the Run Social virtual running experience.

Wahoo “wahooligans” challenged trade show attendees to a 7 Minute Workout.

Polar generated high foot traffic by prompting attendees to tweet a photo of their booth for a chance to win a Balance Scale.

Garmin announced four products, including Varia Vision, an in-sight display that helps enhance cyclists’ road awareness by putting information in their line of sight, and Garmin Connect Insights, which provides smart wellness insights to help Garmin Connect users beat yesterday and achieve their goals.

Mio Global introduced Pai, a fitness tracking system, and Slice, a sleek fitness band. Mio CEO Liz Dickinson explained the products from the exhibit hall in an interview with GetConnected TV.

InBody offered a body composition test and showcased its InBody Band.

Rice Lake Weighing Systems provided free fitness analyses to those who dropped by their booth.
