Imagine you have a little dwarf sitting in your ear that tells you what to do. Well, this is kind of what the ITAMI FiTrainer is. Earlier this year Sega announced the Sega Body Trainer gadget in Japan. Now ITAMI USA informed us that they will market and sell the Sega Body Trainer under the ITAMI brand and the new fitness gadget is called Fitrainer in the United States.
The virtual electronic body trainer in the shape of a headset tells you exactly how you should exercise to achieve maximum results.

FiTrainer uses the Karvonen Method to determine your ideal “Training Heart Rate” (THR), a system that was developed in association with the IPA and recommended by the American College of Sports Medicine. Three exercise modes tailored for walking, jogging and aerobics. Varied workout levels test your physical condition.
Connect your MP3 player and listen to your favorite music during your routine. Easy to use; after you input your age and exercise mode, simply put on the headset and attach the Heart Rate Sensor to your earlobe. Press the START button to begin the warm-up exercise. Follow the narration from the speaker and move accordingly to the rhythmic beat and music. Try to stay within your Ideal Heart Rate Zone during the workout. When the routine is over, follow the warm down sequence.

Details on pricing and shipping dates are supposed to come soon. You can find out more about FiTrainer on the ITAMI site.
