There is a Dutch company called TomTom which makes software for mapping, portable navigation devices and GPS watches. The company will soon roll out a software update for its wearable devices. This update will calculate all your fitness age. What the update will do is that TomTom will take the essential measurement of a metric that is already available on many fitness tracking watches and then compares that intel with a global average to calculate your “age.”
The TomTom Spark 3 Cardio and TomTom Adventurer watches, which is free software, it will measure your VO2 Max then go on to compare it with others belonging to your age cohort and gender group all across the world to give you a wider perspective. It even shows you how you compare. At that point, the software will provide you with incentives such as Fitness Points, as your progress in achieving your fitness goals.
It is also working to offer more workouts on its devices which are personalised to ensure that people complete their age goals according to them and with their comfort. It will work better that ways. Since Fitness age is a relatively new concept, people seem to be duly attracted to it and are trying more and more to understand the mechanisms of it.
After many companies incorporating this new feature, it seems that TomTom has come onboard as well and has worked to offer more and more wearable features through this software. It will come out and be available to the masses next month.
People will have to wait till then and anticipate over how it will work and function. I already am pumped up to get one for myself. Let us see if it is as good as it sounds like. Please feel free to send us your reviews about the Fitness age if you get to try it on. We would be waiting.
