Apple’s online and retail stores in some countries have started selling a smart skipping rope called ‘Tangram Smart Rope’ at a price of $90.
Embedded with 23 LEDs, the rope displays the user’s fitness data mid-air. Further, a dedicated Smart Gym Pro app shows the user’s jump count, calories burned and other fitness data on the iPhone or Apple Watch.
The Smart Rope sold in Apple Stores is available in an exclusive white color, comes in four sizes (S, M, L, and XL) to meet different height needs. Jump rope is one of the most efficient cardio workouts around, burning twice as many calories as running – but offering a more total body workout and less impact to your joints. While jumping rope is easy to learn, it’s challenging to master, and it’s difficult to track your progress because intervals go into the hundreds and thousands of reps.
