Xbox One Reinvents The Fitness DVD

With the host of sophisticated fitness trackers from Fitbit and Jawbone, Kinect on Xbox 360 can look obsolete only supporting large movements like jumping jacks. Yet, it appears Xbox One’s fitness initiatives will pick up the pace for Microsoft. Leveraging a new Kinect sensor, fitness apps will support more precise tracking like muscle mapping, balance calculations, and limb orientation detection. This enables feedback of your form and intensity. What’s more is their partnerships with major fitness celebrities like Tony Horton and Jillian Anderson to support their signature workouts. It’s a great way of reinventing the fitness DVD and tapping into a large existing audience.
