Revolve Bluetooth Jump Rope: Float Like a Butterfly, Exercise Like a Geek

 |  |  |  |  |  |  December 16, 2012


Here’s an alternate take on activity trackers, courtesy of the Quirky hive mind. Instead of coming up with a device that can track multiple activities, the Revolve is a one-trick pony. It’s a smart jump rope that can track your progress and vital stats as you jump on said rope. *Cue Rocky theme music*

Together with a complementary mobile app, the Revolve can track how long you’ve been jumping, how many jumps you’ve made, your heart rate and more. It pairs with Bluetooth 4.0-enabled mobile devices up to 10m away. It has a power switch and a battery life of about 2 weeks when used and about 2 months when you finally give up and go back to movie marathons and training for eating contests and put the device on standby. But those who stick with their routine may appreciate the Revolve’s leather handles and 9ft. rawhide rope, which can be trimmed to adjust its length.

Quirky is currently accepting user feedback surveys prior to releasing the Revolve, so there’s still time to ask for Rocky-themed jump ropes. I pity the fool who wouldn’t like a Clubber Lang jump rope.
