VimoFit Turns your Smart Watch into a Personal Trainer

VimoFit hopes to be the one fitness app to replace all the rest. Stanford electrical engineering Ph.D. and co-founder, Huan Liu said at the Disrupt NY that VimoFit is different from other apps in that it is completely automatic yet it can track a wide range of physical activities. VimoFit depends only on sensors built-in to the Apple Watch and Android Wear devices.

There are many apps in the market that can track workouts, but VimoFit has an advantage over them. It is flexible across settings and can work both indoors and at the gym. VimoFit can also automatically pick up on what physical activity you are involved in and can monitor things like calories burnt and reps.

There have been many attempts to bid an app that could function like VimoFit, but the problem is that they have always focused on a dedicated hardware. VimoFit works with the devices that the users already have. Meaning, if you already have an Apple Watch or an Android Wear device, you will just convert it to a fitness tracking gadget using this app.

Users will, therefore, not have to add any more weight to what they are already having. Many people currently use a pedometer to track their exercise, but they don’t like it because it is cumbersome and bulky. The pedometer is also not able to monitor a wide range of physical activities like VimoFit.


VimoFit is not just a dashboard for sensor data. It also offers users some guidance to help them get the most out of their training. For example, the in-app video helps users with how to do exercise. And after the user answers a few brief about their activity level and needs, they will get personalized recommendations about which physical activities to take on. VimoFit also keeps a record of user’s calories, reps, sets, and time spent working out.

VimoFit is hopes that its automatic exercise detection can help it stay ahead of the curve because of its ability to learn and increase its range of detected activities over time.

The health and fitness tracking market is big and is still expanding. As time goes, the market will get more and more competitive as Apple is also expanding its native fitness features. Third-party service providers will also have to do a lot to remain in the market.
