TrakBug

Background

Imagine a complete fitness monitoring system that can track every aerobic and anaerobic exercise you do. System capable of monitoring reps of every exercise, calorie burned, vital signs such as heart rate and skin temperature. Such a system could revolutionize health and fitness industry. We could help fitness enthusiasts optimize their training to maximize output of their work out. This is the goal of TrakBug.
