It’s getting hard to go for more than a few minutes without seeing someone sporting a Fitbit or Jawbone fitness tracker on their wrist. But to make sure you can count all your strength training reps in addition to getting those 10,000 steps in, Delta Gloves are smart enough to help keep track.
Currently available for preorder and in the middle of a crowdfunding campaign, the smart gloves promise to replace average weightlifting gloves with ones that go beyond enhancing your grip on the barbell. Delta Gloves have built-in sensors to determine the amount of weight lifted, gyroscopes and accelerometers to recognize exercise, and Bluetooth to sync with a smartphone to program workouts and track progress.
It’s unclear whether wearing high-tech gloves will actually “turn reps into results faster,” as the website promises, but they will probably give you the smartest hands in the gym.
