Overview: With Apple Watch building its focus on fitness, it’s kinda given that regular fitness gears should adapt to the Smartness revolution. Keeping in pace is the ‘Smart Rope’, which is a LED-embedded jump rope. It syncs with your smartphone, creating an “anywhere, anytime” fitness experience.


  • There are 23 high-quality LEDs into a proprietary, patent-pending FPCB (flexible printed circuit board) design.
  • These LEDs can display up to four digits with clear visibility even in bright rooms.
  • In the future like icons and emojis will also be displayed.
  • As you jump, the LEDs display your progress right before your eyes.
  • They’ll also illuminate as you power on and off the Smart Rope, and provide information about battery life.
  • Aside from all the digital technology involved, the designers have elevated the physical design of the jump rope in a many ways.
  • The rope is positioned at a 45-degree angle to the handle to encourage effortless, natural motion.
  • Ball bearings are used to ensure fast, smooth revolutions.
  • All materials are of premium quality and finish.
  • The Smart Gym app works seam­lessly with Smart Rope with two-way com­mu­ni­ca­tion.
  • Jumps counted and work­out times are broad­cast to the app for track­ing and mon­i­tor­ing, while BMI data and work­out goals en­tered into the app are broad­cast to Smart Rope to craft your cus­tom work­out.
  • Smart Gym works with mul­ti­ple Smart Rope de­vices, al­though Blue­tooth won’t al­low si­mul­ta­ne­ous pair­ing of mul­ti­ple de­vices. This means your fam­ily (or your Cross­Fit team) can use dif­fer­ent Smart Rope de­vices with a sin­gle Smart­phone.
