In 2005 I was medically retired from the Navy. I was angry and bitter that I couldn't continue my career so I began drinking more to hide the pain of the loss of my career and identity. I quickly found out drinking wasn't going to work for me as I got me into lots of trouble. So I quit drinking but replaced that habit with a new one, food. I ballooned to 315 and hated myself for it. I was constantly in pain and didn't know what to do. I tried diets to take weight off but didn't get more active.

In 2012 I got a diagnosis of Lyme disease and started seeing a specialist. A special diet and orders to take it slow on activity. I did but mostly because moving around still hurt. I dropped weight like crazy but still couldn't run very well for the pain in my knees, ankles and back. So I took up bicycle riding. I loved it in high school why wouldn't I have now. It helped alot. I kept shedding weight down to 215 lbs. I was proud to have lost 100 lbs. But running was still tough. I got into a car accident and hurt my back. As a result I gained 35 lbs back.

I went to physical therapy and got back on my feet again. During this time I kept seeing commercials for the MOOV Now. It looked awesome and I really wanted to try it. I read reviews and anything I could find about the MOOV. The more I read the more I wanted to try it. I used it to run a little and noticed it was very helpful right away. I also got a new bike around the same time. So I mixed it up with the workouts the on The MOOV app. I rode my bike mostly but I ran, and did body workouts.

The MOOV now helped renew my motivation after that car accident and put me back on track. Since getting the MOOV Now just over a year ago I have gone from limiting my running to running almost as much as I want. The MOOV Now coach helped me to change how I run so it doesn't hurt at much and I can run further distances and for way more time than I have ever before in my life. I never thought I would run 152 miles in one month but I did last month. I plan on running a half marathon in the next year and hope to complete many more events in my life. I really want to keep up with all of my kids and give them the best dad, the dad they deserve. I plan to keep this trend going with MOOV.

I first discovered Moov in July 2016 after being an active runner for many years because I was trying to widen my workout activities. My first real cycle was with a Moov coach and I found it vital to learn how to tackle hills when it told me to decrease my gears as my cadence had slowed down too much. Then I was able to use the work out to refine my cycling from a commuter to a competitor.

After I month I had the confidence to sign up for a lifetime goal of completing an Olympic distance triathlon. So now I had to learn to swim for a mile straight! I had never been in a pool with the intention to swim laps so this was starting from zero. Between youtube views and my Moov tracker I was able to get into a rhythm for my freestyle stroke and breast stroke.

In October 2016 I was able to complete my first tri!! My swim wasn't the strongest as I knew that was my weakest sport, however, I was able to catch up ground over the bike and run to finish top of my age class! And it's all recorded here on Moov!

"Well worth the money and hard to beat.

Even though I've upgraded to an actual smart watch that monitors biking, swimming, and running there are still things I miss about the moov. Among them are swimming stroke analysis, optimal peddling speed, and running impact scores. The moov was the perfect companion for tracking performance. It gave well received analysis of workouts that could be taken to later workouts. And it wss my primary training companion for the St. JUDE's Marathon. I now have the Garmin hr which offers GPS functions etc without my phone present (which was my only real Co plaintiff with the moov), but does not give the feedback of the moov. I really really love this device and still use it for biking and swimming since my phone is not necessarily an obstruction for these events."

"Lives up to the positive reviews!

My main reasons for purchasing this Moov Now - Special Edition were the price and "beginner" coaching feature. Before deciding, it was important that the sleep tracking had positive feedback from others, and once I watched many videos and read the rave reviews, I was sold! Moov Now really lives up to those positive reviews, too! I use it with my iPhone for walking, the included heart-based workouts, and circuit training. I'm planning on ordering another one so I can take advantage of the boxing mode. I love that it can track my sleep so well - it measures when I'm still or move while sleeping and gauges that as "restorative" or "light" sleep (hours, minutes and %). The bands I received are magenta, more than pink as it appears here on Amazon, but I absolutely love the shade. There are 2 durable stretchy bands in the package: 1 for the wrist & 1 for the ankle. The holes cover the entire length of the bands, so I believe the bands would accommodate almost everyone."

"Great Tech and Value

I was looking for wearable tech to help me with my running form. I chose the MOOV NOW based on reviews and I felt the price was reasonable. After using it for awhile, I think it is a great piece of tech and a solid value.

I was skeptical about what this button-less gizmo on my ankle could detect but once I used it, I was pretty much amazed. It can tell when your shoulders are slouching, when your head isn't upright, and even if you're holding you hands improperly.

I have found the coaching the app provides is useful and actionable. I am primarily focused on the running efficiency program and have "leveled up" over the month. As a result, my "baseline" pace has improved. Once the weather warms up, I will be using the MOOV NOW while biking with the hopes of improving that form as well.

While the "coach" helpful and pleasant, "she" can be a chatty. There is a switch to reduce the amount coaching but I wish I could shorten it even more. Instead of "Your pace is 161 steps per minute. For this interval it should be 166 steps per minute" I could work with "pick up the pace".

I am very impressed with this device and if I were a more serious athlete, I would buy the MOOV HR."

"Fantastic value for the price paid

This is a fantastic product at the price point it sells for. I have just had it a little over a month and i am very impressed. I am training towards a 5K swim event and this has been a constant pool companion for all my swims. I am just amazed at how accurate this device is. Kudos to the person who has designed the swimming algorithm. I have taken it for a few bike rides as well and have been very impressed with this devices tracking prowess. All in all a great buy for the price it sells for when compared to the likes of the Fenix3's and the Apple watches of the world. Keep up the good work team Moov team."

"A little, straight forward to device that simply do the job.

I'm what you called weekend warrior. Usually after workouts, I feel tired, exhausted and satisfied knowing that I already burn a good amount of calories. BUT Moov give me a hard slap in the face! Moov brutally shows how little calories I burned after a 30 minutes (as I remember) swim. Not only moov shows accurately how long I swim, stroke/m and stroke cycle but moov show i only swim for 10 minutes instead of 30 minutes. Looks like I need to work harder next time. The shadow boxing and circuit training is also fun to do! A great gamification for working out. For all of this, I give this device a solid 5 stars. Great product!"

"The Moov absolutely makes you crush workouts and if you want, you can have some absolute killer workouts. As someone who often workouts alone (read always alone), having something pushing me during workouts is huge."

"As a runner, I really liked being able to see how my cadence, range of motion and pace changed on my runs. Unlike trackers from Fitbit and Jawbone, the Moov Now can measure a far wider range of motion."

"I really like the fact it can be worn on the ankle or the wrist depending on the exercise you are doing as many other fitness trackers don’t have this capability. It makes me more confident in the accuracy of the tracker. It tracks movements really well and gives you instructions to better your workout, it can tell if you’re not moving correctly and gives you encouragement as your workout."

Jeff Donaldson

For most of his adult life, Jeff Donaldson struggled with being overweight. His diet, fueled by processed foods often left him with stomach pain. One year ago, in April 2015, Jeff felt an uncomfortable bulge in his stomach which brought him to his doctor. The stomach pain was the result of a hernia that needed operation. However, his doctor informed him that no surgeon would perform the operation in the current shape he was in. The doctor suggested Jeff enroll in Weight Watchers. So the next day, that’s exactly what he did.  
Although changing his diet was hard, Jeff stuck to the plan. He told us, “the pounds kept coming off. 10 pounds one week, 5 pounds another, up 1 pound the next (oops).” He also started walking 80 km a week and running, which helped him lose weight even faster. By changing the way he ate and increasing his physical activity, Jeff shed 50 pounds in just 8 months!  
This weight loss meant Jeff was able to have the operation in November. The surgery was a success, but during his two month recovery, Jeff was told that he’d have to limit his exercise to walking. For Christmas, his wife gave him MOOV NOW which he tried out right away and realized it was the key to help him get back into his fitness regimen post-surgery. “I used Moov as a healing tool,” Jeff said. 
“Once I was cleared for running, it was like having to learn all over again.” Jeff used Moov Running Efficiency to get himself started. Within a few weeks, Jeff excelled in his running. He went from Speed Endurance level 1 to level 5 and was running up hills! He also felt less pain in his knees, patellar tendon and IT band and no longer experienced shin splints like he had before. Moov taught him that his impact was too high and he needed to land lighter and on the ball of his foot.

“With Moov’s cadence I’ve learned how to pace myself. Moov taught me to lower my steps per minute a little bit and now I’m able to run 1.4 km without stopping.” Besides being able to run farther and longer, Jeff has now completed his fastest mile at 10:16, which is incredible since he told us he was not able to walk well this time last year!
As Jeff continues his fitness journey, he plans to participate in races and cross train with PiYo (pilates and yoga). He recently ran a 5K in 40 minutes and is determined to finish one within 35 minutes (Wish him luck!). When we asked him what advice he has for others trying to reach their goals, he said “start slow, don’t expect to be a marathon runner right out of the gate. Take it slow and you will reach the finish line.”

"Wowza, the feedback about swim stroke & run cadence/impact is terrific. I can see this helping a lot to improve performance & fitness."

"I completed my longest run ever of 14.5 miles with an avg. pace of 8:30/mi. It was the lowest average impact I've ever had! I'm less sore than I think I should be and feel great! I love my MOOV NOW!"

"I have been able to improve my running technique and time thanks to the app and has allowed me to track my performance while swimming. Since the last Android update, everything works perfectly. Really, go for it. It is an amazing gadget :) "

 

This thing is freaky good! My favorite aspect of this is definitely the rep counter; I tried it out the first night I got it and both my husband and I couldn’t believe how accurate it is! The design is just great. It looks fashionable worn on both the wrist and the ankle and it is easy to get on/off, but secure enough that it won’t just fall off. I’ve seen some other reviews about losing the sensor but from my experience, I really have no idea how that would happen. It’s in there very securely! The device is light-weight and comfortable as well. The personal coach aspect of the app is SO helpful. I use this most for running. I am not a trained runner, so having those personalized tips on how to improve my running is really helpful. It definitely helps keep me on track! Some fitness apps can be confusing but the MOOV app is extremely user friendly and easy to navigate. I really like the sleep data it provides. It shows sleep time as well as restorative vs light sleep. I sometimes struggle to get a good night’s sleep so having something that will show me how my sleep changes with different variables is very helpful to me. I’ve only had this for just over a week, but it has already helped me lose a little weight as well as deepen my sleep. I’m definitely a fan of MOOV NOW!
