About




The TYPE-S is LEOMO's latest product innovation in the wearable technology field for serious and committed athletes. The TYPE-S provides valuable insights that help optimize an athlete’s form, technique, and performance. This can also help in minimizing the risk of injury and maximize recovery potential. 

The TYPE-S itself is a remarkable and dynamic device. It is a compact device designed for the serious athlete and those with active lifestyles. Super smart not supersized, its 3.0-inch transreflective display provides the athlete immense clarity. 

The TYPE-S runs on the Android 9.0 operating system which provides an intuitive interface. This gives you access to LEOMO’s application to track activities. While also giving you access to the Google Play store to download your favorite apps to enhance your training/racing experience. 

Wi-Fi connectivity and integration of a Nano SIM card give you the ability to stayed connected wherever you go via 2G/3G/LTE connection. Whether you are sending an email to your coach, texting a training partner, calling a loved one because you got a flat on your ride or browsing the internet, the TYPE-S does it all. 

Athletes can capture their most valuable data in one location. ANT+ and Bluetooth sensor compatibility allow you to capture data and cross analyze power, cadence, speed, pace, heart rate, elevation, and more. The TYPE-S syncs with LEOMO’s five discrete rechargeable Bluetooth® sensors, each with a three-axis gyroscope and a three-axis accelerometer. The data captured from these sensors filter into MPIs (Motion Performance Indicators) which help the user easily quantify and interpret their motion. LEOMO understands the need for a reliable device because the data athletes are capturing on a day to day basis is invaluable. The TYPE-S comes with two Bluetooth® chips. One chip will allow for communication with general Bluetooth® devices (headphones, watches, power meters, etc.). The second chip will only communicate with the five Bluetooth® motion sensors. This increases the reliability of data recorded, decreases the chances of data dropping or sensors disconnecting.

With designated cycling MPIs (Motion Performance Indicators) established cyclists can immerse themselves in the new technology immediately. LEOMO is diligently working to finalize their run MPIs for the launch of the TYPE-S, and they can be expected in the fall. Their internal R&D team has been working with top tier runners and researchers to identify key metrics that impact efficiency and performance. These metrics filter into MPIs which gives the runner the ability to quantify their movement and make necessary changes to improve performance or possibly reduce injury. 


SOFTWARE

Android™ Operating System:

The TYPE-S runs on the Android™ 9.0 Pie operating system. You can access the LEOMO app as well as the Google play store to download your favorite applications to enhance your training/racing experience.



Calls + Text + Emails:

We understand that staying connected is important. Built in Wifi connectivity or a Nano SIM gives you that ability. Whether you are sending an email to your coach, a text to a training partner or calling a loved one because you got a flat on your ride, we have your back.  


PERFORMANCE

Two Bluetooth Chips:

We understand devices need to be reliable because the data you are capturing is invaluable. We have included two Bluetooth® chips inside the TYPE-S. One chip will allow for communication with general Bluetooth® devices (headphones, watches, etc). The second chip will only communicate with the 5 Bluetooth® LEOMO Motion Sensors. This increases the reliability of data recorded and decreases the chances of data being dropped or sensors disconnecting.


ANT+™ WI-FI Integration:

Athletes are able to capture their most valuable data in one location. ANT+™ and Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to capture data and cross analyze power, cadence, speed, pace, heart rate, elevation, and more. The TYPE-S also allows for 5GHz and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connections.


Motion Analysis Capabilities:

The TYPE-S is the first device made specifically for serious athletes which allows them to harness the power of motion analytics. Sync the 5, three-axis gyroscope and three-axis accelerometer LEOMO motion sensors, which provide immediate in depth motion data. This sensor data is filtered into algorithms and expressed in LEOMOs proprietary MPIs (Motion Performance Indicators).

CONVENIENCE

Everything In Your Palm:

Your digital life now fits in the palm of your hand. The TYPE-S is super smart, not supersized. Enjoy a host of features all in an ultra-mobile connected device that’s about the size of a credit card and weighs 110 grams. 


Flexibility:

The TYPE-S  Lets you connect on your terms. Use everyday as your primary smartphone, with your current phone number and data plan. Pop in a SIM card and use it as a secondary device for the gym, a bike ride, run or a weekend getaway. It is an excellent choice for your first phone and by integrating Google Family Link it is great choice for anyone in the family.


HARDWARE

Extended Battery Cell: 

Stay connected longer. The TYPE-S has an internal battery life of 11 hours and an extra power mount is available that extends the battery life to 18 hours. So whether you are on a long ride, trail running, hiking or traveling feel confident that the TYPE-S will see you though.

Risks and challenges

LEOMO has a team of developers and data scientists that are working around the clock to make the TYPE-S an industry standard for motion analytics.

There are always risks and challenges that come up when deploying a new product, and we at LEOMO have experience doing just that with the TYPE-R, and the Live Video Sync App.

The TYPE-S is currently in production as we speak, so we don't expect any changes to shipment or product availability. The team at LEOMO has done comprehensive product testing, we look forward to give our supporters a high-quality product on time.
