Let’s take a look at the biggest tech trends that will change the fitness industry over the next year.
Fitness in the Metaverse
Virtual and augmented reality workouts will continue to make waves in the new year as more people seek out immersive fitness experiences.
VR and AR workouts like Supernatural, Holoball, and Thrill of the Fightare not only fun and engaging, but they’re making exercise more accessible for people with disabilities or mobility issues.
This year, we'll also see progress on devices like cutting-edge AR contact lenses, which could provide heads-up fitness displays during workouts.
Mojo Vision is currently developing augmented reality contacts and is working with companies like Adidas, Trailforks, Wearable X, and 18 Birdies to figure out the best use cases and interfaces for this new tech.
Wearable technology like smartwatches and fitness trackers have been around for a while, but the next generation of wearables set to debut in 2023 will be even more advanced. The market for IoT-enabled health devices is expected to reach a value of $267 billion by 2023.
Wearables and sports apparel like smart shoes and socks can collect biometric data on body movement, distance traveled, muscle stretch, and heart rhythm to help people enhance and personalize their home workouts.
