Today, Tempo has announced a new improvement for their smart home gyms: range-of-motion form feedback. This feature measures how far you can safely move through an exercise and provides real-time visual feedback to help guide you to your ideal zone.
While we have not tested it out yet, Tempo says this new range-of-motion form feedback should be available on both the Tempo Studio and Tempo Move. The company also describes in their latest blog post, how the new feature will work:
Using 3D Tempo Vision, we can help you move with a full range on every rep. We’ve trained our AI to recognize what an ideal squat should look like, which is where the knee angle is at or below parallel to the floor, and have incorporated different environments, body types, and circumstances into our development.
In your workout experience, you’ll see a new meter that tracks your ROM in real time and guides you to an ideal zone. You’ll be able to see if you’re moving well and, if not, get help correcting it. Along with our existing metrics and form feedback, this meter is the next step in creating a workout experience that helps you improve.
EDIT: Tempo is currently testing this new feature out with a small group of members. It should roll out to everyone in the near future.
When I reviewed the Tempo Studio and Tempo Move, I had a lot of positive things to say about both. However, the one thing I did not have much positive to say about was the implementation of their AI form feedback.
Tempo’s form feedback always seemed like it had unfulfilled potential. This is why I am very happy to see this new range-of-motion feedback feature be implemented. Hopefully it works well for a variety of body types and fitness levels. We will report back here at Connect The Watts to let you know our thoughts after we test it out.
