San Francisco, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/24/2018 --ShapeScale to leverage data collected by Atlas Wearables, Fitbod & MyMacros+ to be able to correlate users' workout and nutrition data with their body measurements and ultimately increase the comprehensiveness of feedback provided on users' health & fitness.
Shape Labs Inc., the San Francisco based innovative consumer electronics startup building a cutting-edge 3D scanning body scale, ShapeScale, announced their intent on future integrations with fitness tracking devices from Atlas Wearables, and digital health & fitness apps, Fitbod and MyMacros+. Shape's goal with the future integrations is to further enhance ShapeScale's value for their customers by creating an opportunity for users to integrate the data gained through complimentary devices and services with their ShapeScale app. This way customers will be able to access and benefit from a network of the most advanced health & fitness technologies today.
Atlas Wearables: ShapeScale will be working with Atlas Wearables in the future to import physical activity data collected by the Atlas Wearable devices to the ShapeScale mobile application and to export body measurements data captured and collected by the ShapeScale device to the Atlas mobile application. Correlating the users' workout data with their body measurements will result in both companies' increased ability to provide more comprehensive feedback and more accurate recommendations to their users. In particular, users will be able to see which exercises are yield the expected results and which ones are not based on how their bodies have been changing over time.
"A future app integration between Atlas and ShapeScale could be the perfect way to understand how your workout programs and the exercises you complete affect how your body changes and improves over time." - said Peter Li, CEO & Co-Founder or Atlas Wearables.
Fitbod: Initially ShapeScale will be partnering with Fitbod to provide their users with an accessible and highly advanced solution to strength training. ShapeScale customers will receive a discount on their Fitbod subscription to encourage the use of a tool - the Fitbod app - that can provide a perfect guidance for strength training.
Future collaborations with Fitbod will follow a fairly similar approach to that with Atlas Wearables. ShapeScale will import workout data logged in the Fitbod mobile application to the ShapeScale mobile application and export body measurements data captured and collected by the ShapeScale device to the Fitbod mobile application. This way users will be able to get accurate and timely feedback on their workout plans and see how certain exercises affect their bodies. Ultimately, users will be able to get a more detailed insight into the results of their training plans and follow more precise training regiments recommendations based on their body composition data.
"The initial integration of ShapeScale and Fitbod will be one of a complementary tool to help users of ShapeScale achieve the strength and weight loss results they are seeking, by offering them an inexpensive and easy to use peace of technology that uses AI to determine workouts for a specific person, not a general population. Further down the line, perhaps we can see our finalized workouts entered from a user integrate with the ShapeScale software to inform users, that they are hitting the target areas that they wish to see results in according to ShapeScale." - said Jesse Padilla, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Fitbod.
*MyMacros+: The future partnership with MyMacros+ will allow ShapeScale to import nutrition data collected by the MyMacros+ mobile application to the ShapeScale mobile application and to export body measurements data captured and collected by the ShapeScale device to the MyMacros+ mobile application. Correlating the users' nutrition data with their body measurements will enable users to get a detailed insight into how their diet affects their bodies. Users will be able to get a more accurate and faster feedback on whether their dieting efforts are paying off as expected and will be able to base their future decision on such feedback.
"As technology advances and becomes more accessible the possibilities for advanced health monitoring are immense. The more you are able to know and keep tracking about your body the more likely you are to thrive in whatever your goals may be. With the innovation of ShapeScale we are very excited to allow our users to track their progress in a new dimension" - said Jason Loewy, Founder & Lead Developer at MyMacros+
Ultimately, these future partnerships will allow ShapeScale to provide users with the most comprehensive and advanced solution for reaching their health & fitness goals, a tool-kit that will guide them from start to finish of their fitness journeys.
" ShapeScale is the most advanced method of personal health & fitness tracking today. We are providing our customers with a device that will allow them to measure their body composition in a fast, accurate and convenient way. However, we believe that these benefits can be taken even further by collaborating with other innovative fitness companies. Tight integrations with fitness tracking devices, like the Atlas wearables, and exercise and nutrition tracking services, like the Fitbod and the MyMacros+ apps, will enable users to get even better insights into their dieting and training programs.
Thanks to these integrations, users will be able to understand, whether certain exercises result in desired outcomes, and see if specific dieting efforts are paying off as expected. With such insights our customers will be able to get a 360 picture of their health & fitness progress and make smarter decisions than ever before." - said Martin Kessler, COO & Co-Founder of ShapeScale
