Xbox One’s Kinect technology is stated to be able to monitor your heart rate, monitor your most engaged muscles by measuring power, force and transfer of weight in your body, and measuring your balance, temp and form.
“What makes Xbox Fitness so innovative is the feedback it gives you.” said Shaun T. “The Kinect sensor can evaluate your form, tell how high you’re jumping, how hard you’re punching and even read your heart rate. It’s that little missing piece of validation that hasn’t been possible for home fitness products before. Xbox Fitness completes the puzzle.”
