A new smart gadget that utilizes the internet of things are smart shoes designed by Under Armour. The apparel company has created a pair of shoes that have fitness trackers inside of them. Think about fitness wrist trackers that track data such as distance, heart rate and even location via GPS. Now imagine that these features are inside a shoe through the use of smart technology and the internet of things. This is exactly what Under Armour has created.
The new smart shoes not only track distance and heart rate, but they also track and record your location on a map with GPS technology. This is done through proprietary technology from MapMyFitness, which is a company that Under Armour recently acquired. You will be able to see where you jogged and the routes you took during your workout. Under Armour also said that changing batteries will not be required in these smart shoes. The battery life in shoes is said to be much longer than the lifespan of the shoes before they will be thrown away. So people will not have to worry about changing batteries.
Another nifty little smart gadget is a smart ice cube. These cubes will literally help you track the number of drinks you consume. They will also change color as you consume more and more drinks. This is a way of telling you that you are consuming multiple drinks and perhaps it is time for you to stop. The smart ice cubes will not only count the number of drinks you have and warn you that you are getting drink, but they can also notify friends or family if you have consumed too much. So if you have drunk too much, a smart ice cube will let a family member or friend know that you need a ride and are not fit to drive.Jason is a technology investor, writer and philanthropist from Tempe, Arizona.
