ANT+ technology was huge at CES 2011! Their slogan "If You're ANT+, You're Everywhere", proved to be true. A plethora of ANT+ compatible products were seen in the North Hall of CES, ranging from fitness GPS and smartphones to treadmills and scales.
ANT+ is the seamless collection, automatic transfer and tracking of sport, fitness and wellness data. This technology allows cyclists to monitor their speed and cadence or runners to control their music players and track their heart rate. Collected information can be sent wirelessly to and from compatible devices, including a bike computer, tablet, personal computer with a USB ANT stick or a smartphone.
The ANT+ technology also benefits health and wellness by providing blood glucose monitoring, blood pressure recording and the personal fall/emergency response. All of these components are helpful for rehabilitation, the elderly or those just beginning an exercise regiment.
ANT+ products can be found in well known brands like Garmin, Pioneer, Sony Ericsson, Adidas and Timex, giving consumers many opportunities to use this new technology.Whether you are a beginner runner or training for your 20th marathon, it has never been easier to keep track of all your fitness information.
