PROS

  • The Atlas Wristband is one of only a few devices capable of tracking strength-training workouts.
  • It recognizes a variety of exercises, and it features a useful Coach Mode.
  • The heart rate tracking is accurate.

CONS

  • The Atlas Wristband is bulky and oddly designed, with its display jutting out sideways from the band itself.
  • Battery life is short at just 7 hours, and the device is expensive.
  • The accuracy of the tracking features can be affected if your form is slightly off.
Fitness trackers are great at tracking a lot of things, such as your steps, but few of them can not only track your strength training sessions but also help you create your workouts. The Atlas Wristband, an oddly shaped device designed to make your time in the gym more efficient, does both. The Atlas Wristband tracks your reps automatically as you lift weights or do exercises such as burpees and pushups. When you are looking for inspiration, Coach Mode suggests workouts for you. The device analyzes your form and keeps a workout diary that includes reps and weight lifted.

It's a good starting point and the most reliable gym wearable I've used so far. If Atlas continues to improve the software, then maybe, just maybe, I can look past that ugly design.

Atlas asks you to input weight values for every set, a task that can't yet be automated but is perhaps too tedious for casual users. It's difficult to find value in a pricey tech solution when similar results can be achieved with a pencil and some paper.

The Atlas counted nearly every rep seamlessly, but it missed many of my push-ups and sit-ups. That's a little worrisome, considering those are pretty basic, fundamental forms of exercise.

If you prefer your trackers to be sleek and discreet however, look elsewhere. While the silicone strap is slim and feels comfortable to wear, it's the horizontal OLED display that sticks out like a sore thumb.

The Atlas probably won't replace most people's watches, but it's not designed to. We'd strap it it on when we're at the gym or recording a run, then swap it for an actual watch (or smartwatch) for general use.

... I tried push ups, lateral raises and bicep curls, but the Atlas can identify a far greater variety of exercises than just these. It has the ability to learn about your more unusual exercises, such as rope climbs, and it recognizes TRX routines.
