Last year, talks of HTC entering the fitness realm ran rampant online, as the company was set to launch a wearable in 2015. Those rumors died quickly once the company decided to cancel the project. Looking to get back into the game, the mobile giant has partnered with Under Armour to release a new fitness app dubbed UA Record. The app is said to work with Android and iOS devices, while working with other fitness devices to sync all biometric data to your phone.
Users can manually enter sleep and weight info, which allows the UA Record app to analyze the data and produce a detailed analysis. Social media features are also built in to share workout milestones and challenge friends as well. “We want our products to meet the needs of every individual,” says HTC CEO Peter Chou. “So far, no company has been able to deliver this level of support and we feel we have a tremendous opportunity to disrupt and accelerate the development of this market.”
The app is available for download now at iTunes and Google Play.
