You can set goals and the five LED lights show your progess.Users can sync the data with their PCs, iPhones or Android devices through Bluetooth 4.0 (needs to be turned on for instant updates). You can also connect with friends to share and compete for extra encouragement.
Flex comes in different colors – Slate, Black, Teal and Tangarine to meet the desires of users. The Flex is available for pre-ordering at $99.95. The product is expected to be released in this Spring.
