Imagine that you can ask your dumbbells to adjust their weight according to your preferences. “Alexa, increase the weight to 15 kilos” and Voilà! All ready to continue training. The American manufacturer of training equipment NordicTrack has introduced the iSelect smart dumbbells, which are compatible with Amazon’s voice assistant and which promise to bring that curious idea to real life.
According to the company, the NordicTrack iSelect are ideal for those who don’t want to interrupt their concentration and training flow when shifting weights between exercises. Smart dumbbells do not require manual intervention. Are can increase or decrease your weight electronically through a knob located on the base or through voice commands.
Alexa, also on your dumbbells
When the smart dumbbells are connected to an Alexa-compatible device, they enable three categories of voice commands: set a specific weight, increase or decrease weight, or set a preset weight for any of the 15 specific exercises included. These range from biceps curl until french press, passing by rowing renegade.
NordicTrack explains that iSelects have built-in accelerometers that allow you to control the speed of the exercises and that the base has a stand to place a tablet or smartphone. This last feature can be a good option to complement training with an application such as Apple Fitness+ or other similar ones.
NordicTrack offers with the purchase of your new dumbbells 30 days free of the family plan of iFIT. Of course, it should be noted that to use the integrated functions such as voice control no subscription required, only a compatible Alexa device (to be purchased separately) and a Wi-Fi connection to the Internet are required.
NordicTrack smart dumbbells are available for purchase at Amazon United States at $ 429. However, if you order them from another country you will have to pay additional charges. In case of buying the product from Spain, Amazon adds 411.76 Dollars in concept of the shipment and the deposit of the import duties to the country.
