It is a personal training device and a collection of sports and fitness game applications that analyze your form (posture) and give you specific, real-time instructions on how to improve your motion and movement efficiency. Depending on the type of exercise, attach Moov to the body part that you would like to measure during your workout.
For instance, wear Moov on your ankle or shoe when running, wrist while cardio-boxing.

Feedback is provided in two ways: visually via your mobile device and orally via your earphones.”
