Are you ready to run for your life all over again? Season 4 of Zombies, Run! will be launching this Spring! The update will come with 40 new missions and a huge number of new options.

You'll be able to edit and delete run logs from inside the app and sync with the website, see your estimated mission duration, set your difficulty, and autoplay next mission if you find yourself ready to run two back to back. Six to Start has also improved the music playback so now it is even easier to use Spotify, Pandora, and other streaming music services. In addition, there will be a new user interface, in-app mission synopses, a Halfway-there notification, and more.

You can download Zombies, Run! for $3.99 on the App Store to start training.

Had a Few Too Many Christmas Cookies? Atari Fit Has You Covered

Posted by Jessica Fisher on January 7th, 2015

Atari has announced the new Atari Fit: a fitness app that uses games to encourage you to work out. The app includes more than 150 exercises, including full-body circuit workouts, running programs, and custom routines. You can workout on your own or challenge yourself against your friends to see who can rack up the most points, which can then be traded in for classic Atari games like Pong, Centipede, and Super Breakout.

Atari has also partnered with Walgreens so that users can utilize their Balance Rewards to allow them to spend their loyalty points from within the app.

“We look forward to welcoming Atari into our Balance Rewards for healthy choices program,” said Adam Pellegrini, Vice President of Digital Health, Walgreens. “Atari’s knowledge of gamification will bring a new dimension to our program.”

The Atari Fit is compatible with many fitness devices such as the Fitbit, and works in conjunction with other apps like Google Health. With the gamified workouts, multiplayer options, online leaderboards, and social media sharing options, the app aims to help you shed those winter pounds and get you back in shape for summer.

Atari Fit will be out later this month.

“Flash is the only fully featured activity and sleep tracker in the world for under $50, making it an incredible value,” said Tim Golnik, VP of Product and Design at Misfit.

The Misfit Flash will be available in October, but you can pre-order yours now on the Misfit site for $49.99.

CES 2014 - TAO Wellness Announces the TAO WellShell Exercise Tool That Whips You Into Shape With "Variobics(TM)"

Posted by Rob Rich on January 6th, 2014

It can sometimes be tough for people to make time for exercise. Maybe they work long days or have to spend too much time sitting at a desk. Perhaps there are other physical limitations that are preventing them from going for a jog or a bike ride. Well now there's TAO to consider as an alternative.

The TAO Wellness fitness program, along with the TAO WellShell, promote a brand of exercise know as Isometrics. Isometric exercises are basically the application of pressure at certain points of the body, for certain lengths of time, and at certain strengths, in order to improve circulation and tone muscles. The WellShell and Tao Wellness system work together to not only present you with Isometic exercises but to create an entire program for you to follow; complete with reps, coaching, and so on. "Variobics(TM)," they call it.

The WellShell will measure and track your progress, then give you the results through the TAO app (coming soon) and allow you to see how far you've come. What's so interesting about it is that the exercises are largely comprised of squeezing the device from various angles - all of which will work different groups of muscles - so there's nothing really holding you back from using it whenever you have a spare moment but can't manage any major physical activities such as running, pushups, and so on.

If you're headed to CES you can check out the TAO Wellness system and the WellShell January 7-10 at Booth #26712 in South Hall 2. If not, you'll have to wait a bit longer (and keep an eye on the website) to get your hands on it.
