2020 has been a good year to punch things (not people!). FightCamp let's you do that and tracks you as you do -- for a price. For $439 plus a $39 monthly membership fee you get a pair of hand wraps that will hold a pair of Bluetooth punch trackers and access to FightCamp's modest library of workouts. Drop and extra $800 dollars and you actually get a punching bag and workout gloves. On the one hand, unlike other workout systems that include cameras and microphones, the Bluetooth punch trackers are privacy-friendly. On the other hand, you could buy a punching bag and some gloves off eBay for much less and still get your fight on. Android users beware, the FightCamp app is iOS only.
What could happen if something goes wrong
These are basically just Bluetooth trackers you wrap on your hands to track punches in your garage or apartment, so not much of a security threat there. If you sign up for their app, the company does collect some personal information they say they might share with third parties, which isn't awesome. What's the worst that could happen? Not a whole lot, really. Punch away!
