There are plenty of fitness tracker devices available that can be worn on your wrist or slipped into your pocket. However a company based in Nancy, France has taken a new approach to fitness tracking and has created the Digitsole.
The Digitsole is the very first interactive insole that can track your distance and calories burned as well as heating your feet when required on those colder days. Watch the video after the jump to learn more.
The Digitsole has been designed to be controlled by a companion smartphone application that links to the electronic insole using Bluetooth connectivity. The Digitsole project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $40,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain a little more:
“Everybody has suffered from cold feet, whether on their way to work, while walking, skiing, hiking, or even riding their bike or motorcycle. What if you could control the temperature of your shoes with a simple click on your smartphone and also keep track of the distance you have walked and calories burned?
This innovative foot product is designed for your health and comfort. Available on Android and iOS, the dedicated Digitsole app is connected to your insole with Bluetooth 4.0 so you can warm your feet and track your day with one easy click.
We have designed Digitsole with you in mind, so we want to ensure that it is very easy to use. Once you’ve got your Digitsole, download the dedicated app. When your Digitsole is fully charged via a USB charging device, simply switch the on/off button on the back of the insole, launch the app and connect it with your smartphone using bluetooth.”
