Tim Elizondo: mission to change tracking
A Scottish start-up, which has created a wearable fitness tracker, has received a six-figure investment from an investor group led by Gabriel Investment Syndicate.
Glasgow-based Attis Fitness has launched its debut product Stridesense after four years in development.
The product is the only wearable on the market which can analyse a runner’s whole stride without the need to visit a laboratory.
Other investors backing the product include Strathclyde University’s Strathclyde Entrepreneurs Fund, Shancastle Investments and Scottish Enterprise.
Founder, 26-year-old Tim Elizondo, said: “Our mission is to change the fitness tracking market for the better, by making professional running laboratory-grade technology accessible to all runners.
“In doing so, we’ll help people both improve their running and lessen the risk of injuries.
“As a sports engineer, I’ve been lucky enough to work with the latest sports lab technology and I wanted to make this technology readily available and accessible to all – not just professionals. “
