Moov Now Review: Our favourite fitness tracker gets an upgrade

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Moov be sure to read our full review of the original Moov here.

Moov, which launched its first generation fitness wearable with a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter met its goal in just 90 minutes, goes back to pre-orders to fund it’s new band. Backers who jump in early and make a purchase during the pre order will be able to grab a Moov Now, a huge discount off of the proposed retail price.

The first generation Moov saw pre-order sales of more than one million dollars and still continues to do extremely well on Amazon, where it stays at the top for the most popular fitness trackers. The Moov team are back with a sleeker and more stylish model called the Moov Now.

Moov Now gets a replacement battery that lasts a massive 6 months; they have achieved this by ditching the original battery and swapping it for a coin battery, like what we would see in traditional watches. While this approach does significantly improve battery life, some users may find it annoying to have to manually swap the battery when it dies instead of simply charging it for a few hours.

In a similar, familiar approach to the original the Moov Now is still first and foremost a coach, which we hear through the voice of Siri, and instructs you while you work out and makes suggestions on how to improve your form. If you prefer listening to music while you exercise, Moov Now works seamlessly and integrates itself with Spotify so your music fades in and out when the coach is speaking to you.

The device stays connected to your phone even when you aren’t near it, which makes tracking activities like swimming and climbing a lot easier.

Moov Now supports running, walking, swimming, cycling, cardio boxing, and other activities. A new feature added Moov have added is the ability to ramp up the intensity of a workout, or turn on a “reduced coaching” mode if you desperately need a breather. This new function really highlights the niche that Moov claimed, the real time digital fitness coach.

The Moov Now’s new design is best described as webbed. The soft, stretchable rubber band is interposed with a hollowed-out dot pattern that makes for a much more breathable wear and the Moov Now has a much smaller footprint than its predecessor.
The company will be launching an upgraded version of its app in conjunction with the Moov Now release, which includes new sports like spinning, which users have requested. They’ll be rolling out social features as well, such as a stats leader board and a live competition option that lets you challenge other users in real time.

Strap the Moov Now on your ankle and the AI will offer specific suggestions on form, like when and with how much force you should push off the ground. And boxing, thanks to 3D depth sensors in the Moov Now, can be tracked with a high degree of accuracy — it recognizes the difference between a hook and a jab, a punch and an uppercut. Swimmers get an upgrade as well, the Moov Now can now differentiate between strokes offering a wider field for data capture and offering more information for swimmers to access.

Moov Now isn’t just a fitness wearable for people who want to count how many calories they are losing – it’s for people who want to actually improve their form and track that improvement.

Good news is that with the release of the Moov Now the original Moov has dropped in price. To buy the original Moov click here or click here to see the full review.

    Sad thing still seems to be: lack of Android support.
    The stuff you read and see is for ios only – as the android development is far behind and new releases come for ios first.
    You can read this everywhere (in comments): their uservoice/knowledge base, facebook, amazon, review comments.

    Also for the moov now the new app won’t be available for android when it is available. On facebook they write: only ios when launched.
    On the last device it took nearly half a year to be able to use it at all.
    Boxing for example still is not available for android at all.

    I am thinking about buying the new one – but lacking support for the most used os around sounds like a dealbreaker.
