The Atlas is a marvelous fitness tracking wristband that has a feature that makes it stand out in the increasingly saturated market of wearable fitness tech -- it can actually recognize what exercise you're doing and provide more useful and individualized tracking data.

This water-resistant fitness tracking wristband doesn't merely note your steps or your heart rate, it can actually notice a number of weightlifting exercises including but not limited to pull-ups, dumbbell bicep curls and bicep curls as well as jumping jacks and jump rope.

The Atlas is embedded with special sensors that trace wrist motions through three dimensions and match each repetition with an exercising, allowing the system to track calories burned, repetitions and sets -- and of course provide feedback through a companion app.

As more and more fitness tracking devices enter the market, new entrants need to have extra features that make them stand out. With its ability to recognize weight-lifting exercises, the Atlas certainly does just that.
