Health and fitness technology company Humon announced that the Humon Hex, the first clinically validated wearable device that measures the level of oxygen used by the muscles, is now available for order on Amazon.com . The innovative wearable device tracks oxygen levels used by the muscles in real time to personalize workouts to the correct intensity and pace, ensuring the wearer has the most productive workouts without over-exerting themselves physically.
Other wearable devices work by measuring heart rate that does not capture fatigue and workout intensity which are better indicators of physical exertion.
Athletes who are early users of the new wearable have already reported that the device has saved them up to 20% off their target time by providing optimized workout regimens. Focusing on intensity and the individual’s personal goal, Humon Hex provides the wearer with a better workout routine in less time.
The Humon Hex uses optical sensors to measure oxygen levels, and unlike other wearable devices that are worn on the wrist, this device is worn on the thigh. This is because studies have shown that athletes exert the most pressure on this muscle grouping, especially during high endurance training. Despite being designed for endurance training, the device is optimal for all athletes and focuses on all muscles.
The Humon Hex will be displayed at CES 2018 in the Fitness and Sports section of Eureka Park, from January 9-12 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The clinical validation study will be presented at the SPIE Photonics West conference on January 27th, 2018.
Humon is a Boston, Massachusetts based company that hopes to empower people to be the best versions of themselves through exercise. Four time Olympic medalist Alto Boldon serves as Humon’s advisor, providing insight into training at the elite level.
