Tushi Pal: track your fitness in style while helping out a good cause

crowdfunding-picTushi Pal is a stylish fitness tracker that provides careers to indigenous Mayan communities in Mexico. This innovative fitness tracker mixes technology, tradition, and design to create a one-of-a-kind product.

Each Tushi Pal comes with a beautiful woven case that is handcrafted by a talented Mayan artisan. There are three different designs to choose from: Jipi Japa, Sisal back strap loom or waist loom and Sisal Corchado. Not only does Tushi Pal have a distinct look, but no two cases are exactly identical.

In terms of actual fitness tracking you get fairly decent technology under the hood – but nothing really to write home about. In addition to the optical heart rate monitor, Tushi Pal also tracks activity with a pedometer, provides the wearer with information on calories burned and distance traveled.

The wearable will check in on your ticker once every 15 to 60 minutes (adjustable in settings), although you can long-press the OLED screen to get results any time. While you are exercising, Tushi Pal will monitor your heart rate more often and provide you with information on heart rate zones. The LED light will change colors to indicate whether you are warming up, fat burning, doing aerobic, anaerobic or strenuous exercise, which is a nice touch and very useful functionality.

The sleep tracker provides you with your daily sleep quality, awake time, light sleep time, deep sleep time and heart rate. There are call notification capabilities that display caller ID and phone number, and the tracker has the ability to connect to third party messaging services.

If you are a design conscious active individual and want to help out a good cause, you may want to consider contributing to this campaign. By purchasing a Tushi Pal, you are not only getting a stylish fitness tracker, but are also helping provide jobs to those in need.
