Fitrus Plus Holistic Fitness Band

Your weight is only one measurement of your total health. For a holistic view of your overall health, you’ll need more than a scale because lbs don’t represent that much. Other key health metrics to measure your health can include muscle mass, body fat percentage and BMI. And now there’s a device that can provide all of this information in one place. Meet the Fitrus Plus, a hand-held gadget that leverages Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) in order to provide its user with a number of body metrics.

So how exactly does it work? The palm-sized device has two imprints on each side for you to place your thumbs. Once you’re properly holding the device, a tiny electric current will be sent through your body. The BIA method then determines the opposition, or “impedance” to the current’s flow. The current will make its way through hydrated tissue much more easily than it will through tissue that does not contain much water. And  because muscle holds around 75% and fat holds very little water, BIA is able to determine your body composition quite accurately.

In a few seconds, your readings will be sent via Bluetooth to the companion smartphone app. It’s recommended that you take your measurements early in the morning before you’ve eaten or before you’ve engaged in any activity. If you work out or have breakfast before pressing your thumbs against the Fitrus Plus’ electrodes, you may end up with skewed results. But when used correctly, the Fitrus Plus supposedly is 99.8% accurate.

Fitrus Plus uses BIA

The Fitrus Plus also provides oxygen saturation, stress, skin temperature, basal metabolic rate and number of steps you’ve taken. And thanks to the app, you can see how your readings change on a weekly basis. If you’re consistent about logging your results, the Fitrus Plus app can provide you with customized exercise and nutrition plans.

Fitrus Plus ships in September

With less than 3 weeks left in its campaign, the Fitrus Plus has already surpassed its fundraising goal of $30,000. Fitrus Plus is offering early bird pricing of $129, and delivery is expected for September 2018.
