Runtastic launches fitness-tracking Moment wrist watch
Runtastic, an Austrian fitness company, has just launched a new fitness-tracker named the Runtasic Moment. However, unlike your common wearable, the Moment doesn’t have a display but an analog watch face, just like that Sony Wena watch.
As you would expect from a fitness oriented product, the Moment features a variety of sensors to help track various statistics. It doesn’t have a heart rate monitor, but the smartwatch can keep track of your steps taken, calories burned, minutes active and monitors your sleep patterns. The watch also features a vibrator motor to bring to attention to alerts. The Moment connects up to Runtastic’s fitness software via Bluetooth, which stores all of your fitness data over time.
As well as the analog watch face, the battery life is also quite a bit different to what we’re used to with a typical fitness tracker. Runstastic states that the watch should be able to last for around 6 months on a regular coin sized battery. The Moment is also waterproof up to 300 feet (100m), so makes a handy swimming companion.
The Runtastic Moment comes in four different models at two price points. The Moment Elite and Classic are the two more expensive options at $180/€199.00 each. The Classic comes with a black leather band and is available in your choice of silver, gold and rose. The Moment Basic and Fun are cheaper at $130/€129.00 apiece. The basic comes in a Stainless steel case, while the Fun is built from Aluminium but can be found in a range of colors.
The Moment is available to purchase directly from the Runtastic website, although demand currently means that shipping times may be delayed by 3 to 6 weeks.
Runtastic was recently acquired by Adidas at a cost of $239 million. Adidas is looking to grab a bigger share of the fitness tracker market in order to catch up with rivals such as Nike.
