Review date: 11/02/2020

Working out at home is all the rage these days. So are new fangled home gym gadgets. This might be the weirdest one we've seen yet. A Bluetooth connected foam roller. Why does anyone need a Bluetooth connected foam roller, you ask? According to JaxJox, it’s so you can control the five vibration settings, three different massage zones, and use their algorithm to “recover with intelligence.” Hmm...feels like a bit of a stretch.

What could happen if something goes wrong

What could go wrong with a Bluetooth connected foam roller? Probably not a whole lot. JaxJox didn't have section in their privacy policy detailing exactly what data they were collecting, which is a failure on their part. But really, it's a foam roller, how much data could it really be collecting? Although the app does access your phone's camera and tracks location, so maybe more than you think. What could go wrong? Well, having your foam roller tracking where you like to stretch out your hamstrings probably isn't too bad. But really, do you need a connected foam roller in your life?
