Movo Wave Fitness Tracker Costs $30
The Wave, from a new startup called Movo, pack an impressive number of sensors and is really cheap.
The device itself is unremarkable in every way; design, functionality – but it’s nonetheless worth a mention, thanks to its super-low price of $30. In setting the price so low, Movo has managed to undercut out already-affordable devices like the Jawbone Up Move and Misfit Flash, both of which sell for $50.
The plastic, water-resistant device tracks steps, distance and calories burned, but it lacks a sleep or even an exercise mode. In other words, it doesn’t distinguish between time spent walking and time spent doing something more vigorous, like running.
The app, available for iOS and Android, is also stripped down. Unlike some other fitness applications we’ve seen, many of which are very graph-based, the Wave app has a calendar layout, where you can map your daily step count against a photo for that day.
Both the tracker and the app are available today.
