Velocomp (http://www.ibikersports.com), a sports technology company, has introduced the iBike PowerHouse, an “intelligent” cycling computer that automatically adjusts to your exercise goals. It will roll out at this month’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Based on periodic assessments of your fitness improvements it works with your iPhone and iPod touch to measure, guide and motivate you to achieve important health, appearance, and fitness goals. The PowerHouse method is designed to maximize the benefit of each ride and shortens the time needed to achieve results.
To work out with iBike PowerHouse, you select a goal-based plan, from iSlim, Express Fitness, Brazilian Butt, Kid Fit, Weekend Warrior, Zero to 50 miles in 3 weeks, Healthy Heart, or other plans available through in-app purchases. Then, over a period of 4-6 weeks, iBike PowerHouse guides you through a series of 45-90 minute bike rides. During each ride, you are directed to pedal at specific levels of effort (power), customized to the plan’s goals and your measured fitness level.
Priced at US$269, iBike PowerHouse includes the case, electronics, PowerHouse app, speed/cadence sensor, iSlim Plan, and mounting system. Additional fitness plans are available in-app, priced at $9.99 each. The iBike PowerHouse is fully compatible with all bicycle ANT+ HR sensors. For more info go to http://www.ibikesports.com .
