Today Adidas unveiled a new wearable called the Adidas ZONE, specifically designed for use in schools, it is a fitness tracker that aims to help students stay fit and healthy during physical education.
To do this the wearable will show the user information about their fitness, as well as share that data with the student’s teacher to allow them to tailor workouts to individual students, using the IHT Spirit System.
Jen Ohlson, co-founder and president of Interactive Health Technologies explains more about the new device and the IHT Spirit System :
During the 2015 school year, 600,000 children were connected to the IHT Spirit System, a 140 percent increase in student engagement year over year. With the help of the new Adidas ZONE for IHT Spirit, IHT is on track to hit their 2016 target of daily interactions with one million students nationwide.
This should mean that schools will no longer have to use a single method for all students, and it should help their students in the process.
The band also features a heart rate sensor, alongside NFC technology and a battery life that is said to have enough memory and power to last the school schedule.
IHT is already taking orders for the Adidas ZONE, with the aim to get it across schools in the US, there’s no news on any other region launches yet.
