Smart necklace tracks your activities

By Jerry Odumbe | Dec 17th 2014 | 1 min read

Presently all fitness and activity trackers developed are worn mostly on the wrists.

Veari, a Mexican firm, has nonetheless changed the game a little bit with their novel smart activity tracking device known as Fineck.

Rather than wearing the device on your wrists or ankles, Fineck, as the name suggests, is worn on the neck and primarily targets those who frequently develop neck problems due to wrong posture.

The smart necklace monitors neck movements, posture and motion. Also, just like most fitness trackers, Fineck tracks distance walked and other subtle movements as well as health metrics to remind wearers of their health status by providing the information on various charts through the device’s smartphone app.
