The fact that the Trasense wearable fitness tracker can monitor wearers' steps, calories and sleep cycles is not revolutionary. Nor is the fact that it can compile all of this data into a meaningful visual for user comprehension. But the fact that this "wearable fitness guru" offers these abilities for a mere $18 is pretty remarkable.
Fitness culture is on the rise, but exercise remains almost a luxury for those who can't afford expensive boutique gym memberships or professional apparel and equipment. Not everyone can own a higher-end product like the Fitbit, but that doesn't mean they aren't concerned with their health and wellness.
Trasense is ultimately disruptive in its attempt to "democratize the daily tracker industry" by creating wearable fitness products that are low-cost and accessible to all.
