the New COGITO FIT

CONNECTEDEVICE Introducing New COGITO No-Charge Smartwatch

Keeping connections beautifully simple, the new COGITO FIT brings together fashion, fitness and freedom on the wrist

Las Vegas, January 06, 2015 — CONNECTEDEVICE, leading maker of fashionable connected watches, announces a range extension to its successful COGITO brand. The newest COGITO introduces a new fashion concept and new features, while staying true to the company's core design philosophy of merging classic analog movement with intuitive digital notifications.

Henri-Nicolas OLIVIER, CEO of CONNECTEDEVICE, says: "We're delighted to show our partners the new COGITO for the first time. It's the most personal, and most personalizable, watch we have ever created. The addition of activity monitor and IFTTT features means a closer fit with the user's priorities and lifestyle. The changeable plugin allows the user to mix and match different looks to fit their mood and wardrobe."

Henri-Nicolas OLIVIER continues, "We're calling this model COGITO FIT, taking inspiration from all these new benefits and playing on the multiple meanings for the word "FIT" — staying healthy, matching your style, adding new plugins and more. BEING FIT with Activity Monitor, a CLOSER FIT with changeable plugins, a GOOD FIT with your style, and the RIGHT FIT with your digital life. This is what COGITO FIT is all about."

COGITO FIT blends vibrant colors and trendy design with essential notifications from the smartphone. Created for maximum mainstream appeal, COGITO combines fun and functionality to make the smartwatch more accessible to a larger public and a more natural experience for the user. LED icons on the watch face alert users when they have a call, an email or a message on social media sites. The easy-to-use interface lets users manage not just calls, but also trigger their camera, control their music and locate their phone.

FASHION. COGITO FIT introduces a new fashion concept to the COGITO brand. Changeable plugins on the watch bezel bring a new level of personalization, allowing users to transform the look to fit their their mood, wardrobe and environment. Like other COGITO watches, the technology merges seamlessly on the watch face with beautiful analog movement.

Available in three collections, COGITO FIT offers colors and styles that appeal to all types of customers — men and women, students and professionals, tech savvy and fashion conscious, Android fans and iPhone enthusiasts. Color options range from timeless choices like deep blue and midnight black to a more glamorous color palette including gold and marsala, chosen as Pantone's 2015 color of the year.

FITNESS. The activity feature is designed for everyday usage, like the watch itself. Different from step-centric Fitness Trackers, COGITO takes a holistic approach to monitoring overall activity levels, providing valuable insights into the user's lifestyle. The activity monitor continues with or without the phone in your hands, and it does not require a recharge.

FREEDOM. Unlike other smartwatches, COGITO never needs to be charged. The button-cell battery provides uninterrupted power for months (depending on usage) without requiring an external charge. With the addition of the activity feature, COGITO continues to offer the full benefit of long-life, no-charge battery.

Water resistance up to 10 ATM allows COGITO to follow active users, even in wet situations when the phone cannot be in their hands. The watch can be worn in the rain, at the beach and similar activities without worry.

COGITO FIT will be available at retail starting in the second quarter of 2015. The range includes three collections — Sporty, Executive and Luxe — that feature different styles and colors, premium materials and fashionable plugins.

Game Changer: MobiCoach, The World’s First Real-Time, Remote Sports Coaching Service, Starts with Golf

 

Remote Coach Gives Golfers Live Analysis and Instant Feedback for Game Improvement


Santa Clara, Calif. January 28, 2014 – Sports training will soon never be the same. Mobiplex, makers of SwingTIP, are today introducing MobiCoach—the world’s first real-time, remote golf coaching and video analysis service. With the aid of the free SwingTIP iOS app, golfers can improve their game via a live lesson from a coach anywhere in the world. Launched today, the new MobiCoach service includes a growing roster of top golf coaches from institutions such as Nicklaus Academies, Troon Golf Academy and Jeff Ritter Golf.

Mobiplex has developed a powerful mobile, cloud-based software platform that brings coaches and students together wherever they may be. With the MobiCoach service, golfers can get high quality coaching in as little as 15 minutes be it at home or on the range.

 

“It is hard to overstate the disruptive impact this technology will have on sports education,” said Vijay Nadkarni, founder and CEO of Mobiplex. “This is the first time a sports tech platform combines man and machine to allow for instant feedback, analysis and improvement. Golfers can finally get coaching from the world’s best pros in a comprehensive, convenient and affordable manner. For example, a golfer in Australia can take a live lesson from a marquee coach in the States. And coaches can teach year-round, even from their home offices, without being handicapped by poor weather or fixed work hours.”

 

There are two ways for golfers to utilize the MobiCoach service: either as a free standalone SwingTIP iOS app; or by combining the same app with a SwingTIP motion sensor and the iOS app for richer analysis.

 

The free SwingTIP iOS app will include a coach-initiated video capture feature, where the coach can remotely record and view a live video of the golfer’s swing, while the golfer focuses on the instruction. Next, the coach can offer immediate feedback and continue to monitor and advise on the golfer’s swing or putt over the course of the lesson. And, by using the SwingTIP sensor, a more complete level of analysis is enabled.

The MobiCoach cloud-based service incorporates:

  • Live Voice Over IP (VOIP) – a live voice call between the student and coach
  • Auto-Video Sharing – records the golfer’s swing or putt; instantly displays to the coach
  • DisplaySyncmirrors the coach’s screen to the student’sfor visual instruction
  • Real-time Whiteboarding – enables the coach to diagram feedback instructions on the mobile display to further illustrate imperfections and corrections
  • Side by Side Comparison – coach can compare and annotate two swings concurrently
  • Comprehensive Backend -within apersonal MySwingTIP.com page, a golfer can choose an academy or coach, book lessons and pay securely (while coaches can also promote their services, as well as publish their calendar and coaching rates).

“To play their best, a golfer needs to be in regular contact with a qualified coach. Unfortunately, most golfers take infrequent lessons and bad habits can creep in between sessions,” said Mike Malaska, 2011 National PGA Teacher of the Year and the Worldwide Director of Instruction for Nicklaus Academies. “With MobiCoach, coaches can provide regular lessons to students at a distance, which can lead to measurable and consistent improvement of their game.”

“About 90% of golfers leave the academy brand within two weeks” said Tim Mahoney, Worldwide Director of Education, Troon Golf Academy. “The ground-breaking MobiCoach service allows continuing coaching from a distance, thereby maintaining their golf improvement plan in an enjoyable arena. With MobiCoach, we can take the Academy to the golfer.”

Craig Stadler, winner of the 1982 Masters and 13 PGA Tour events said:  “This development completely changes the face of golf instruction, and can greatly expand the reach of the coaching industry.”
