The wearable market has been flooded over the past few years with devices to measure your blood, track your activity and estimate your calories. However, there hasn’t been many devices to specifically help fighters with their punches and performance. It’s worth noting that Moov’s wearable supports boxing work-out.

Below is a list of our recommendation for you or your fighter friends.
