Cyclists: Get a Coach in Your Ear with Audible Updates on your Workout by MotionLingo's New ADEO Fitness Trainer
World's First "Talking" GPS-Guided Product Pairs with MP3 Players or Stands Alone
The next time you take to your bicycle, be sure to take your "coach" with you. MotionLingo's ADEO® Fitness Trainer is like having a private coach in your ear and a flight recorder on your arm, giving you data on demand, including speed, elevation, pace, calories burned, and a lot of other customizable data.
MotionLingo's ADEO Fitness Trainer is the first device of its kind to announce out loud statistics such as your speed, distance, time, elevation and/or calories burned. The ADEO can be used alone or connected to an MP3 player like the Apple iPod® or Dell DJ® to allow updates to be delivered right along with the music. The ADEO will turn your music down slightly to deliver an update while still playing your music.
Slightly smaller than an iPod, the ADEO Fitness Companion utilizes embedded GPS technology to continuously collect workout data, which it then announces at intervals determined by the user. This enables cyclists to hear real-time workout progress reports while biking, without risk of injury or loss of focus. The user can even select from a variety of voices to suit different tastes or moods.
MotionLingo's ADEO Fitness Trainer allows for safer, more meaningful, and more entertaining workouts for cyclists.
Once the workout is complete, statistics can be uploaded directly to a PC or Mac by plugging the ADEO into the computer's USB port. MotionLingo's MotionTrak software, included in the package, can then be used to compare current and past workouts. Users can add workout-specific comments, graph their performance results, track mileage, and even check weather conditions from past sessions based on time and location. The software is also used to set update preferences and upload voices. An online demo of the MotionTrak software is available here.
As an added benefit, users also have free access to a complete workout support system on the MotionLingo.com website, including the ability to plot an aerial view of any workout, set training goals, and monitor progress toward those goals. The site includes access to a community of cyclists who encourage each other and share their enthusiasm for the sport, as well as blogs, and user forums.
