Exercise fanatics who like to see their reflection in the gym’s floor-length mirrors will likely be thrilled about the latest trend in home exercise—smart fitness mirrors.


This article by Kitti Palmai and Will Smale, writing for the BBC, makes the following points:
  • The idea is to connect with an online trainer, who then appears in the mirror, along with your reflection.
  • The mirrors are approximately 6ft (180cm) tall, high-tech mirrors that contain a computer; hook up to the internet, and work as a video screen.
  • The mirror is fitted with cameras and speakers on the more advanced devices, so the trainer can observe your movements and suggest tweaks and feedback.
  • Whether you go for a higher-spec model or a more basic offering, you typically pay at least AUS$1,300 for the mirror and then a monthly subscription on top.
