This Kickstarter of the Week brings us back to the newest product-type in the fitness realm – the fitness tracker. Goccia (Italian for “a drop of water” is billed as the “world’s smallest and simplest activity tracker”, which is hard to argue with at only 7.2 mm thick and 17.9 mm wide, it is a miniscule product that can pack a punch.

goccia-sizeThe goal of this tracker is to provide a sleek and subdued style to accompany its technology.

The idea of an activity tracker is to improve the lifestyle of its wearer, yet after trying many available trackers, we were left unsatisfied. Wristband-shaped trackers were bulky and uncomfortable, limiting day-to-day activities such as typing. Also, many were not water-proof and the large size and fixed designs were unappealing to the fashion-conscious among us. 

It claims to be able to provide readings for a wide array of activities.

Goccia is capable of not only monitoring your daily steps and expended calories, but the algorithm can adapt to many different activities, such as hiking, biking, swimming and more! 

Overworked or not sleeping enough? Track your sleep quality and patterns with Goccia. The tracker will automatically switch between modes to give you the most effective and detailed analysis of your lifestyle.

There are a lot of other great features, including: short wireless charge times (25 minutes), 100% waterproof, lasting 2 weeks on a single charge, amongst others. Check out the Kickstarter or webpage for more info. You can get in on this product at the Early Bird special pricing of $60. There is still some work to be done to get it funded, so back this product now to ensure you get one!
