This in-ear fitness tracker can play music and track your body temperature
For professional athletes (and overly-zealous amateurs), measuring your core body temperature or CBT can offer useful information about workout performance and recovery from injury. Usually, though, tracking this bit of diagnostic data can be a bit tricky, relying on intrusive methods like ingestible pills. Bodytrak, a UK startup, has a neater solution: a wearable gadget that uses an in-ear thermometer to measure CBT as well as handling a range of other fitness-tracking tasks. The gizmo, also named Bodytrak, can connect to your phone or smartwatch via Bluetooth to transmit data in real-time. As well as CBT, it measures heart-rate and oxygen consumption (VO2) and the usual metrics like speed, distance travelled, and cadence (for runners that means how often you take a step). And because this thing is in your ear the whole time, it'll also be able to play music and be used for augmented audio — processing ambient sounds to improve “hearing and situational awareness.” To top that all off, it comes with Bodytrak's own software platform for tracking and exporting health data.
