If you haven't gotten your fill of new wearable devices to track your fitness, make room for one more: the Amiigo. The fitness bracelet project, which is currently going the crowdfunding route, offers a distinguishing feature: it can track more than 100 different activities.

Amiigo's waterproof bracelet can track movements of the upper arm, such as biceps curls, while a shoe-clip, also waterproof, can track leg exercises. The Salt Lake City-based designers say their device can also capture specific data such as exercise type, repetition, sets, duration, speed, and intensity.

What's more, it can track your heart rate, blood oxygen and skin temperature data, and calories burned. Plus the system lets you share your data with social networks or organize competitions with friends to earn points, regardless of what type of exercise you're doing.

Both hardware components use Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to iOS devices (iPhone 4S and newer) and Android devices supporting BLE.

Backers will need to commit a minimum of $99 to get one of these devices in their hands. The product is set to retail for around $125.
