Some of you might be familiar with Atlas, the company that came into the wearable scene a few years back. Their wearable then was capable of recognising exercises normally executed in the gym and can be customised to learn and track new exercises on top of a whole other list of metrics. The Atlas Wristband 2 did cement the company as a credible upstart capable of delivering on their promise. This week, the company commenced crowdfunding efforts for their new Shape all day fitness coach wearable.
The company’s new product looks interesting and I make no apologies for funding it as of publication. At $70 off the retail price plus nearly all the smarts of the Atlas Wristband 2, it’s a steal.
While there are dime a dozen activity trackers on the market, the effective crunching and analysis of the stats which is then presented in useful morsels is an art in itself.
Since Atlas was founded, their community of users have completed over 1.3 million sets of exercises. This experience and knowledge is tapped to find what workouts and goals work best to help everyone achieve greatness.

The Shape wearable will focus on equipment-less or bodyweight exercises for a start before expanding to the entire repertoire of the Atlas library.
With 30 more days to go, Atlas Wearables is just about $1500 short of their target. A fantastic response to their product if I might add. If you’re quick, you can still snag yourself a unit of Atlas Shape at $70 off the recommended retail price of $129, slated to ship in June 2017.
