Fitness isn’t just for those who are already in great shape, it’s for anyone and everyone who simply wants to take care of themselves and live a healthy lifestyle. There are many ways to get in touch with your fitness and one of those ways is now through the help of your smartphone or tablet as well as other connected fitness devices. Just about every major technology company who produces smartphones is developing other fitness-related products, this includes HTC who at CES 2016 back in January, announced and displayed their upcoming fitness system in partnership with Under Armour, currently one of the biggest fitness and sports companies around the globe.

The device is called the UA Healthbox, and includes the UA Scale, the UA Band, and the UA Heart Rate, which are a smart scale a fitness tracker and a heart rate sensor to help you stay in the know about your health and fitness activities. After a couple of months, HTC has now finally launched the UA Healthbox and it can be picked up from their website for a total of $400 which includes all three above-mentioned items as it’s being offered as a cohesive system for tracking and meeting your fitness goals.

The UA band is primarily your everyday accessory. HTC and Under Armour have developed it with a water-resistant feature so it can be worn all day every day, and the display stays on during workouts so you can quickly and easily glance at it for when you want to know any details about the stats that it’s tracking. It’s also Bluetooth compatible so it can connect to the UA record app on your smartphone. The UA Heart Rate is meant to be worn during exercise and can help you track your heart rate, heart rate zone, and workout intensity so you know how hard you’re working, allowing you to train smarter and prevent pushing yourself too hard. The last piece of the system, the UA Scale, is so you ca keep track of your progress like body fat percentage and body weight, and it’s capable of recognizing up to 8 different users so you don’t have to worry about it losing your data when someone else decides to track their own progress.
