Billed as a tiny gym in your pocket, the Activ5 is a next-generation smart fitness device that pairs Bluetooth capability with a sophisticated set of force sensors to help you maximize your isometric workouts. A fitness tool that fits in your work bag or suitcase, the Activ5 fitness device lets you work out and practice hundreds of unique and effective strength-training exercises anywhere.

Building on a long tradition of isometrics found in Yoga and Pilates, the Activ5 and Activ5 companion app enables a workout regimen proven to increase strength in key muscle groups. While it’s long been a workout-sales cliche to suggest you get “real results” from only fifteen minutes per day, there is a scientifically valid case to be made for the effectiveness of brief isometric workouts. And the Active5 fitness device goes further, with sensors capable of measuring 200 lbs of force as well as giving feedback on individual muscle group strength and precision.

Based on the inputs you give the device during isometric workouts, the Active5 is able to make recommendations and encourage particular routines. Using a simple Bluetooth connection, the smart fitness device connects to the Active5 Companion app on your smartphone and gives you access to a wealth of routines, data and personal training advice.

The app also allows for customization and lets you input your own personal goals, whether you’re looking to reduce stress at your desk or build up your core. The Activ5 has been tested for durability and its versatile design lets you practice either seated or standing.
