Flyfit is an activity tracker that is worn around the ankle instead of the wrist to more accurately measure leg movements during activities like running, cycling, and swimming.

Flyfit was developed by Jimmy Leu and Beatrice Chu, a husband-and-wife team who created the concept for the device based on their own needs. They wanted a small device that is easy to put on and remove, and that can accurately provide real-time data throughout the day and during workouts.

Many fitness trackers are wristband types, but may not be the best tracker for people who like leg-intensive activities like cycling and running. Flyfit is a good match for fitness enthusiasts who are more into sports or cardio activities that are powered by the lower body.



Flyfit has a stylish design and is ultra-lightweight and comfortable. It can be worn discreetly under the user’s socks or pants and doesn’t get in the way of everyday movements like writing or typing the way wristbands do. Wearers can easily forget they are wearing the Flyfit while it continues to track their movements throughout the day.

Flyfit syncs with an iOS app via Bluetooth to let the user view their data in real time. The creators are currently working on an Android version of the app.

The Kickstarter campaign for the device has just launched and backers can take advantage of the Kickstarter Special, which gets them a tracker and two colored bands for $99. The estimated retail price is $139. The campaign ends on March 25th.
