Why is Lumafit Unique?


The Lumafit Vision.

Lumafit goes way beyond what’s possible with a wrist worn sensor.They wanted to know what exercise you are doing and how well you are doing it.

Identifying exact motion at the wrist is very difficult as the wrist goes through such large motions that are unrelated to core body movement.

The Lumafit tracks motion at the head rather than the wrist so it can precisely identify and rate cardio workouts. At home the Lumafit allows you to track bootcamp sessions including exercises such as lunges, sit-ups or squats. At the gym it tracks your workout with precision allowing you to own your stats and visualize progress over time.

The Lumafit provides medical grade heart data allowing them to develop apps that guide and analyze yoga breathing sessions.

They are developing three apps for iPhone and Android that link with the Lumafit and will help you build strength and stamina as well as improve focus and relaxation.

  • Gym Tracker:    Track your gym sessions with precision!
  • Home Fitness:  Interactive Bootcamp sessions: Burn 200 calories in 20 minutes anytime.
  • Yoga Breathing: Supercharge your mind with a 10 minute interactive mindful breathing session.

What’s Your Heart Age?

The Lumafit measures heart activity accurately throughout your workout. The response of the heart to exercise is different depending on age and fitness level. The Lumafit can give you an estimate of your heart age based on heart activity during your workouts. If you’re extremely fit you will see that your heart age can be significantly less than you actual age.

It takes real commitment to reduce your heart age. At least 4-6 months of regular exercise are needed to see a reduction of 1-2 years. If your looking to get fit setting a target to reduce your heart age is a great way to track real improvements in your physical wellbeing


Can’t make the gym today? Keep yourself on track with our interactive bootcamp application. Burn 200 calories in 20 minutes anytime. Lumafit can track individual exercises such as squats, lunges, sit-ups, push-ups, crunches, running on the spot, jumping jacks and even burpees.


The sensor tracks your heart rate as accurately as a chest worn strap throughout your exercises. It also measure calorie burn, pace and form. You can select from programs for all fitness levels or custom create your own. The apps let you review your session results and see your progress improve over time.


Ever go to the gym and wish you could take home your session stats automatically? Your Lumafit lets you do this with ease as it tracks your cardio workout with precision.

Whether it’s the rowing machine, treadmill, cross trainer, stepper or bike, the Lumafit measures your cadence, pace, heart rate, calorie burn and symmetry.


Set your gym goals, whether it’s running 5 miles on the treadmill within 6 weeks, or burning an extra 5000 calories in a month!

We’ll also let you sync your workout data with your favorite tracking apps. We’re now linking with MapMyFitness and MyFitnessPal. We’ll be adding others before launch so stay tuned for updates.


Keeping fit is important for overall health but so is the ability to relax. With Lumafit a ten minute mindful breathing session is all that is needed to relax, refocus and reboot.

The apps track your heart waveform as well as breathing rate and stress level. Our mindfulness apps aim to make a five or ten minute breathing session fun and energizing.


The Lumafit measures tiny variations in the beat to beat timings of your heart activity (called heart rate variability analysis) to measure stress and breathing activity.

Our app supercharger is similar to an iTunes visualizer, changing visuals in real time based on your relaxation and focus. It rewards you for regular practice by unlocking new visualizations. Lumafit makes it easy to relax or boost focus anytime.


  • Built with comfort in mind. Super soft spring technology means you don’t even realize your wearing it.
  • Sleek behind the ear design.
  • Secure fit. Designed to stay on during vigorous exercise.
  • Compact and ultra light design at only 38g.
  • Worn only when you need it for a workout or meditation rather than all day.

Medical Grade Heart Data

The Lumafit uses optical light sensors (Red and Infrared) to measure heart activity. The key to the measurement is the fact that hemoglobin in the blood absorbs light differently depending on whether it is carrying an oxygen molecule or not. Every time your heart beats it pushes oxygenated hemoglobin though the arteries. This waveform can be picked up in high resolution though our optical sensors.

The head motion is measured via  a 3 axis accelerometer. This allows the Lumafit to track head trajectory over time and identify specific types of individual motion (such as a sit-up) or continuous motion (such as on a cross trainer).

Real Time Access

The Lumafit SDK gives you access to the sensor data in real time. Data access includes the raw heart and motion data as well as processed output such as calorie burn and heart rate. Our SDK will be available for both iOS and Android.

Potential Lumafit Applications

  • Sports and Fitness Apps.
  • Gesture Tracking.
  • Biofeedback or Meditation apps.
  • Track stress during online games.
  • Head Tracking for Golf or Tennis apps.
  • Smart Watch Apps for Fitness

The potential is limitless and we are eager to work with the developer community to build fantastic new applications.
