Many of us recognize that jumping is a great form of exercise, and the motivation to do it every day comes from a product like this synced skipping rope. The beautifully streamlined design keeps the piece of exercise equipment to as efficient a form as its low-tech counterparts; however, your feet may leave the floor when you discover the exciting features inside.

An optical module and a three-axis accelerometer are integrated into the Sophia Smart Skipping Rope, making it the most advanced product of its kind. A small digital screen counts your jumps, a USB port enables charging and the two handles are embedded with magnets to stick neatly together when not in use. The synced skipping rope relies on a Bluetooth connection to log hops and calories burned; it can facilitate live jumping challenges with your friends on the Sophia app, and it can share your statistics and it can help you reach your fitness goals.
