Lumo BodyTech, the maker of the slightly-awkward-but-still-a-good-idea Lumo Back posture aid, is back for a second bite of the cherry with the Lumo Lift.

Attaching to your clothes using a lapel-style magnetic clasp, the Lumo Lift, like its predecessor (which required strapping around the lower back), uses an algorithm to detect posture and vibrates if the wearer should be sitting or standing a little taller. It tracks core position, upper body position and other nuances of posture.
It‚Äôs definitely a unique addition to the lifestyle tracking genre and, if it works as well as its makers claim, could provide a wealth of benefits to the wearer.
‚ÄúThe Lumo Lift is a stylish device that empowers you to make small but impactful changes like pulling your shoulders back, engaging your core and lifting your head,‚ÄĚ said Lumo BodyTech CEO, Monisha Perkash.
‚ÄúWe have found that these minor changes in your posture increase confidence, build good muscle memory, and promote an overall healthier lifestyle.‚ÄĚ
With a battery life of up to five days, it‚Äôs not likely to worry the Misfit Shine in that respect but there is a nice docking station to make charging easier and you‚Äôll have a full battery with a two-hour charge.

There‚Äôs just 32MB of memory on board but that‚Äôs enough to store up to four weeks of data. There is, of course, an app you sync your data with too that offers all the usual goal setting features too.
The Lumo Lift will go on sale later this month, priced at a penny shy of ¬£80. You‚Äôll be able to get one from Amazon or from Apple Stores.
Wareable will be bringing you a full review very soon, so stay tuned.
