New smart rope jumping beyond conventional jump rope "SMART ROPE"

Jump rope is an exercise that is also used for cultivating footwork and rhythm in fighting sports such as boxing, but it looks modest, but it is effective for diet etc as it uses the whole body. I adopted the latest technology in such rope jumping "SMART ROPE"New sports equipment that transcends conventional jump rope is born.


Jump rope is an exercise that you can easily do if you have just a little space anywhere and anytime, and you can consume 480 kcal if you do 3 sets of 10 minute jump rope. In addition, it is possible to train various muscles at the same time, and you can efficiently move the main parts such as the calves, the leg muscle, the shoulder, the abdominal muscle, the quadriceps muscle, and the hamstring at once. Moreover, it is easier exercise than jogging, and if you try to consume more calories than rope jogging, you need to run at a pace of 8 miles or more per mile (about 1.6 km). In addition, it also has excellent aspects that it is also good exercise for bone health, if continued, it also leads to an improvement in breathing efficiency.

It is SMART ROPE that raises the dimension of such jump rope by one step.

When you enter the height / weight in the special application, the calorie consumption and BMI value of the user are automatically measured, and the application records the number of jumps with the paired SMART ROPE. In the application, you can see how much calories are consumed for each jump, and you can have your own interval training organized from the BMI value and the user's ability.

You can also check the results of training with Smart Watch.

Moreover, the LED is embedded in the rope part of SMART ROPE, and the number is displayed in front of you every time it jumps.
