Enki Sports is bundling wireless sensors and the Web together into a real-time integrated training system that you communicate with via your smartphone.Tomorrow San Francisco-based
"The system will coach the athlete based on their training plan, monitor's the athlete's performance via wireless sensors and provide feedback during performance to help the athlete follow their plan," according to COO Jeff Broderick.
The integrated system runs real-time training data to a web site that is inflected according to that data and checked against a workout plan. Any modification is then "pushed back down to the phone in time for the next workout."
"One of the biggest problems we solve is to give each workout context within the athlete's overall plan and how it relates to their goals. Because our system knows the athlete's plan and listens to the athlete's body in real time, our customers are more likely to avoid fatigue-related injuries and performance issues," according to CEO Kirk Ewing.
The packages contain the wireless sensors to record heart rate and sport specific data, a phone application and a subscription to the MyEnki online training app. The first platform to be supported will be the iPhone. iPhone Sport Packages for Cycling will ship in June with Running following in August and Triathlon later in Q4 2010. Support for Android will arrive in Q4 2010 with Blackberry and other phones following in 2011.
