Under Armour just unveiled a device that's long been in the works. Created in partnership with the electronics manufacturer HTC, it might be the start of a new trend: the also-ran fitness tracker.

HTC announced its own fitness tracker, the HTC Grip, a year ago. That too was a joint effort involving Under Armour. But the ambitious concept (packing GPS and a touch screen) never reached the public due to a series of delays.

That isn’t to say the HealthBox—a $400 bundle that includes a fitness tracker, heart rate monitor, and smart scale—isn’t novel. It just isn’t that novel.

The three items come in a distinctive large red box. The Under Armour Band fitness tracker looks sleek, with a black-and-red color scheme and black-and-white OLED screen; the disc-shaped Under Armour Heart Rate is smaller than the ubiquitous Polar heart rate monitor; and the Under Armour Scale has a unique circular design that sets it apart from most smart scales on the market, including Fitbit's and Withings’ top-selling connected models.

These devices do what you’d expect: the Under Armour Band tracks your steps, sleep, and calories (sorry, no GPS here anymore), the Under Armour Heart Rate tracks your heart rate during workouts or runs, and the Under Armour Scale keeps an eye on your weight and body fat percentage.

All data gets funneled through Under Armour’s UA Record app, which aggregates fitness data from apps like Endomondo and MyFitnessPal (both owned by Under Armour), among others. Your health data gathered with HealthBox devices can also be imported into Apple’s Health app.

You can pre-order the HealthBox from Under Armour.

The HealthBox fitness system in a bundle is a great idea, but by now, most athletes are already tracking their workouts.

The products look promising, but companies have been saturating the fitness tracker market, with the biggest differentiating features being how they look and how long the battery lasts. Apparently, there are only so many things you can track on a wrist.

Fitbit makes fitness trackers along with smart scales that import your weight and body fat data, and other manufacturers like Jawbone, Polar, and Garmin have their own devices that track your movements.

Withings has its three fitness trackers, smart scale, infrared thermometer, and blood pressure monitor. They're all made to work with Withings Health Mate app, which can send data to Apple Health, just like Under Armour Record.

We can't predict whether the new HealthBox might push past its competition—after all, Under Armour has a dedicated fan base, and the company was a successful startup in the crowded field of workout clothing. But the release of yet another new set of devices that tracks basic fitness data and stores it in its own app raises the question: Do we need yet another fitness tracker?
