FitRacers '360-degree' workout app targets Peloton and Fitbit customers

Largo Technology Group (LTG) is launching a gamified fitness application called FitRacers in Q1 2020.

App subscribers will have access to a 360-degree video feed which they view on their own device.

The feed is integrated with augmented reality elements to provide virtual cycling and running trails. The app uses 4k resolution ‘Bee Vision Technology’ to immerse subscribers in life-like surroundings, while using their own existing exercise equipment.

The patent-pending software is compatible with smart watches, smart TVs, Android and IoS smartphones, as well as TV boxes and Windows 10 laptops.

The FitRacers app also provides an artificial intelligence coach and racing forum to connect the community of subscribers around the globe via a live racing engine.

Using smart watches, the app is capable of tracking biometric data and has its own integrated fitness application for following physiological metrics.

LTG founder Herman Miranda said: “Anyone can enjoy using FitRacers to explore. The visuals will transport you anywhere in the world.

“Our 360° video technology will create a lifelike experience that will make working out fun and exciting.”

Largo Technology Group claims the launch of FitnessRacers will disrupt the fitness software industry, with its price point of US$9.95 a month and is actively targetting Peloton and Fitbit customers in its marketing.
