Implications - The mass consumer concern with health increased simultaneously with consumers' digitization, resulting in a slew of technologically savvy exercise pieces such as this JumpSnap ropeless jump rope. Not only do technological exercise pieces offer more convenience and enhance at-home workouts, they present an opportunity for added devices and functions, like the JumpSnap's ability to count calories. Those in the fitness or technological industries can surely benefit from this movement while it's still new.
