Gesture Logic unveiled a new wearable fitness device called LEO. Worn as a band around the upper thigh, LEO is created to optimize a user’s workout while reducing risk of fitness-related injury.

LEO is connected with an iOS/Android app that lets the user customize a workout and understand results of the measurements taken during a workout.

Using biosignal monitoring technology, the device measures the following: muscle activity, heart rate, hydration levels, fatigue, calories, technique and lactic acid. LEO then takes these measurements and notifies the wearer if anything is off during the workout.

Additionally, the Gesture Logic device works to improve fitness routines and exercises by recommending ways to increase efficiency or better techniques, the company said.
