NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Slendertone, the world leader in developing advanced technology products that improve muscle tone, today announced Android compatibility for its Connect Abs. The Connect Abs is the first smart toning ab belt to actively engage and tone core muscles by delivering clinically proven technology to help men and women tone, firm and strengthen their core muscles in 6-8 weeks.
The FDA-approved Connect Abs helps users achieve their fitness goals of building a stronger core by employing Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) toning technology to create a gentle current that engages abdominal muscles, mimicking the body's natural muscle movements. Slendertone's patented gel pad placement targets and activates all three major abdominal muscles simultaneously for maximum toning, activating even the most difficult to reach core muscles responsible for defining the body's shape. "We recognize that a strong core is the center of a healthy body and are thrilled that the Connect Abs is now accessible to the ever-growing, 1.8 billion strong Android market," said Mike Nohilly, Vice President, Slendertone North America. "We realized Android users' demand for versatile health and wellness products, and are excited for them to incorporate the Connect Abs into their fitness product ecosystem." The Connect Abs utilizes the convenience of modern-day wearable technology to offer better compression and supplement users' regular fitness routines, allowing them to wear the ab belt while exercising at the gym, running errands or completing daily tasks. The Android companion app acts as a virtual trainer by offering five goal-driven programs: Essential Toning, Upcoming Event, Post-Natal, Fitness, and Advance Toning. Each program offers customized user feedback, tracking, motivation, and content. Users can also access the app to track and share data points, including intensity levels, program and toning progress and F.I.T. scores - a weekly power score measuring a user's progress against their individual toning program including Frequency, Intensity and Toning, keeping them motivated to achieve their toning goals.
