ProForm Vue fitness mirror undercuts its competition on price, throws in weights

ProForm is known for its sturdy, no-frills home gym equipment that won’t break the bank. Good news for people on a budget shopping for some new gear to add to their smart home gym. You can now jump into the fitness mirror craze with the new ProForm Vue. What’s important to note here is that it’s undercutting many of the other smart fitness mirrors on the market in price right now, like Mirror, Tonal, and Tempo Studio. If a mirror isn’t your thing, ProForm is also selling its new Studio Bike Pro 22 and the Pro 9000 treadmill.

Available now, the ProForm Vue is a full-length mirror measuring a roomy 58.2 inches tall by 20.4 inches wide. Like the Mirror and Tempo, the Vue gives the user visual feedback, allowing them to match the form and pace of the iFit trainer. The Vue is equipped with a 22-inch touchscreen display for selecting the workouts and watching the trainers. When doing mat workouts, the display can be tilted 60 degrees to the left and right.

Besides the mirror itself, the ProForm Vue also includes a 10-pound barbell, two 5-pound dumbbells, and four extra 2.5-pound weight plates. These accessories can be stored behind the screen when not in use. Like most interactive ProForm gear, the Vue is equipped with the iFit interactive training programs. iFit provides personalized fitness experiences with trainers who work alongside you.

Studio Bike Pro 22 and Pro 9000 treadmill

ProForm also is selling the Studio Bike Pro 22, a new iFit-endable bicycle trainer with a 22-inch HD display. The Pro 9000 also brings a 22-inch display, and adds Bluetooth connectivity to the company’s highly regarded treadmills. Equipped with ReBound Pro, the new Pro 9000 treadmill softens your landing and makes running and walking more comfortable. As a bonus, the treadmill folds out of the way for storage. Both the Studio Bike Pro 22 and the Pro 9000 treadmill use iFit software to control the resistance to match the terrain of the workout.

Proform Studio Bike Pro 22

All three trainers are available for ordering now from Proform’s website. The ProForm Vue costs $1,499, making it one of the least expensive fitness mirrors on the market. It’s on the lower side compared to its rivals, which is made better when the weights are included in the package — something that costs extra if you intend on getting the Mirror by Lululemon. The Studio Bike Pro 22 is equally affordable with a $1,499 price tag, while the Pro 9000 treadmill is priced at $1,799.

Huawei finds its niche with the sporty Watch GT Runner
Huawei Watch GT Runner on wrist.

By focusing on a specific niche, Huawei may have found an audience for its latest smartwatch, the Watch GT Runner. It’s a spinoff of Huawei’s classier Watch GT 3 smartwatch, but as the new watch’s name suggests, it's targeted squarely at runners.

It’s a technically impressive bit of hardware, and the software is very good, so when you consider it as an alternative to other running watches, the Huawei idiosyncrasies that frustrate on the Watch GT 3 become less of a problem here. I've been trying it out and here are my thoughts.
A light touch
The Huawei Watch GT Runner is light -- just 51 grams with the very flexible silicone strap -- and that makes it comfortable to wear all day. The 46mm case is quite big, but at 11mm thick, it never feels that ungainly. For comparison, the new 47mm Garmin Fenix 7 weighs 79 grams and is nearly 15mm thick. The lightness comes from the polymer fiber case, which is given some visual appeal with a ceramic bezel and titanium crown. It’s also worth noting the huge amount of adjustment on the strap that allows it to be worn both under and over clothing.

When will we come to a time when every accessory in our home is smart? Is there a limit to what should actually be smart? Let's talk about a category that may not be what you traditionally think of as a smart device -- the toothbrush.

I'm all for having smarter health products and having the best technology in our hygiene products (like bidets), but I've not put a lot of thought into how, or why, my toothbrush is smart. It's time to dive in and see if it's even worth it.

Football can be a tough sport -- and nowhere more than at its most elite level where highly trained players compete for gridiron glory. There is a lot at stake, and a lot that can go wrong, too. From calls that are tough to make in real-time to the ever-present risk of season-ending injuries, you need a whole lot of eyes on the game to ensure that it runs smoothly.

Hawk-Eye is a company that's there to lend an automated assist. Used in an ever-growing number of sports, including the NFL, Hawk-Eye's tech consists of synchronized multi-angle cameras that can help track large numbers of data points on the sports field.
