Lumo BodyTech which earlier came with a similar device called Lumo Back posture aid now for the second time came with a great wearable posture tracker called Lumo Lift which is unique in respect of design and effectiveness.

This square shaped device will not only prevent you from slouching but will also work as a total activity tracker with the capability to count steps, calories burnt in activities and distance covered.

Fluid Design

This wearable activity and posture tracker clings to your sportswear with a lapel-style magnetic clasp. Unlike the earlier wearable tracker from the company, it is designed to attach to your garment more simply. But just like the device launched by the company earlier it is equipped with the same powerful algorithm to track posture and activities throughout the day.

The entire device is basically built around an electroplated thermoset plastic tracker measuring 44.5 x 25.4mm with 12.7mm thickness.

While women can use a bra strap to make it cling to the body men can choose some tight t-shirts. The only minus point of the device is that it works with one recommended position.

By exercising the same process you can align the posture again as it suits you.

The connected app will also allow you to evaluate your daily activities and fitness quotients through distance walked, records steps and calories burnt.Compared to the most another popular activity tracker available presently in the market, it just works fine.
