The 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was a hot bed of tech geeks, reporters, app developers and some of the most innovative consumer electronics companies in the world. We saw everything from a helicopter you could control with your thoughts to a fork that tells you when you’re eating too fast, and an ultra hi-def TV that blows current HD models out of the water. Inspiration at this year’s show was limitless.
There was also no shortage of fitness and health innovations. For hi tech fitness buffs, data is king, and being connected was the theme of this year’s show. Fitness brands showed off wireless data collection, sharing and tracking, then integrated the exercise information with the products we’re already using during our workouts, like smartphones.

At Life Fitness, we’re always looking to improve our products to fit what exercisers want and expect out of their workout experience. With the launch of our latest Discover tablet consoles, Android users will no longer be left out. Elevation Series Discover SE and Discover SI Treadmills, Cross-Trainers, and Lifecycle Exercise Bikes will now have a mini-USB connector for Android and Blackberry compatibility. We were the first to bring Apple connectivity to the market and we will now offer those great features to Android users.

Are you a focused exerciser, or a distracted one? Me, I need distraction. I don’t want to be alone with my thoughts—I think too much. I need the TV on, earphones in, and possibly a book to scan during commercials. Then, put me in a gym where all the energy around me keeps me motivated.
