Seeking to make the smart home gym more affordable, Tempo launched the $ 400 Tempo Move, a gym setup that uses your iPhone to provide real-time feedback during your workouts.
Tempo Move is designed to be a cheaper alternative to more expensive solutions, such as Peloton or even Tempo’s own higher tier options, which range in price from $ 2,500 to $ 4,000.
To save you money, Tempo uses a piece of gear that you probably already own if you’re reading this article: the iPhone. Specifically, Tempo Move uses the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera – the same that powers FaceID – to analyze your movements. This feature allows Tempo to provide real-time feedback while training you through over a thousand exercises.
Plus, it only requires a two-foot-by-two-foot square to house the equipment, making it one of the most space-saving smart home gym options.
Tempo Move is comprised of a weight storage cabinet that includes a stand for your iPhone, 35 lbs of smart weights and necessary accessories, as well as an HDMI cable. Users can add additional weight plates, training mats, or the official Tempo heart monitor for an additional cost.
You will need to provide your own iPhone and HDMI compatible TV and purchase a $ 39 per month subscription. The subscription plan can be used by up to six people.
To use Tempo Move, you’ll need an iPhone with a TrueDepth camera, which means everything from iPhone XR and later, but doesn’t include the second-generation iPhone SE. Tempo Move is also compatible with Apple Watch heart rate sensors.
Currently, the system only supports barbell workouts, but the company says it will add support for barbell and kettlebell workouts.
If you want to learn more about Tempo Move, you can head over to the Tempo website. Tempo Move is currently available for $ 395 during the launch period and will cost $ 495 in the future.
Apple also launched its own home fitness service, dubbed Apple Fitness +. Designed to work with Apple Watch, users can follow trainer-led workouts on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. Apple Fitness + is available for $ 9.99 per month or can be bundled as part of the Apple One subscription.
