Smart Wristbands for Smart Gyms

Gym rats who appreciate a high-tech workout experience will be interested in Casio's development of an RFID wristband that can track members and enhance their workout experience. In addition to allowing seamless check-in and tracking for safety purposes, the wristbands can interact with workout equipment to display customized workout data and an overall fitness profile.

Because it is both waterproof and unobtrusive, the smart wristband can be used in any facility where physical activity takes place, such as swimming pools, schools, day care facilities, and spas.
