Fitness tech company Tempo has released a large update, adding a number of features which leverage the capabilities of both iPhone and AI.

The main addition is the new Body Composition Scanner, which uses the depth camera sensors in an iPhone.

Utilising the iPhone's tech, the Tempo app can now scan the user's body and provide measurements for both body fat percentage and body circumference.

"The gold standard in body scanning technology is a DXA scan (Dual-energy X-Ray Absorptiometry), which uses low levels of x-rays to measure your body’s make-up." Tempo says.

"A DXA machine costs up to US$80,000, with each scan costing up to $150 and taking up to 30 minutes.

"Using the depth camera sensors in your iPhone, though, the Body Composition Scanner in the Tempo app provides results within ±5% for body fat percentage when compared to DXA results and ±3.1% for body circumferences.

"When scans are done consistently, our margin of difference drops to ±0.20% for body fat and ±0.45% for body circumference, as verified through studies with Texas Tech University."

Other additions include improvements to data gathering, in order to provide a more accurate, holistic picture of the user's fitness health levels.

Utilising the data, the Tempo app will be able to recommend the difficulty and intensity level for individual workouts, for example, which weights the user should be using.

According to Moawia Eldeeb, Tempo CEO and co-founder, the new additions are designed to optimise the workout experiences for best results.

“With the new Tempo, we’re creating training plans that put you at the centre and deliver an experience that’s even better than the world’s best personal trainer,” Eldeeb said.

“No matter your fitness level, every workout is optimised to your body’s changing needs, every time you come back to train with us.

"This level of hyper-personalisation is integral to effective training that keeps you engaged, challenged, and empowered with tangible progress. No more guesswork, no more plateaus—Tempo evolves with you to help you get stronger every day.”
