iFit reveals the Internet of healthy things

Interconnected products aim to improve your sleep, exercise, and more

Published: January 08, 2015 06:00 AM

Don’t know what to do with all that health and fitness data you get from your fitness tracking device? At CES 2015, we’re seeing that companies are finally realizing that, and they're doing something about it.

Playing off this year’s CES theme, “The Internet of Things,” iFit showcased the Internet of healthy things at its booth. The company has a line of Internet-connected—and interconnected—products designed to help you live a healthy life, including a bed, a kitchen appliance, a scale, a treadmill desk, a treadmill, and a strength-cardio workout machine.

Here’s an example of how they work together: The bed will track sleep patterns and sense if you’re too hot or cold, then adjust the mattress temperature to help improve your sleep.

And if you tossed and turned all night, the bed will send a message to your iFit treadmill, which will recommend a workout that matches your energy level. Look for the products to be available in the fall of 2015.
