Coming Soon To Indiegogo: LEO, An Intelligent Fitness Wearable By GestureLogic

Comments

Leonard MacEachern is a professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. His company, GestureLogic, is showing off a new wearable that is soon to arrive on Indiegogo.

The wearable, called LEO, is a band of silver-woven fabric that wraps around the user’s thigh and measures hamstring movement, hydration and heart rate. The device is not named after Leonard MacEachern, but rather Leonardo da Vinci, as the man embodies the science behind the product.

Where LEO differentiates itself is that the cloud is used to gather data and send recommendations back to the user to help them train more effectively.
