The only immersive fitness experience for use outdoors allows users to enter the metaverse.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, Nov. 18, 2021
ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE:EPY | OTC:EPYFF | FSE:2NY2) (the “Company”) today announced new augmented reality features to the recently released Klocked Fitness App. The new features include advanced audio cues not available in any other fitness app including place, placement, performance, and personal best. The Klocked AR audio features keep users motivated to stay on course and finish a new best. Klocked is the immersive fitness experience you can use outdoors that allows you to run / walk in the real world and power your avatar across hundreds of 3D/AR courses.
“ePlay is thrilled to build a community around gamification, out-of-this-world immersive experiences, real-time races, and key real-time information and sports science data to motivate users to achieve new accomplishments and personal bests,” says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay Digital. “Whether your goal is to finish your first 5k or your fastest marathon, Klocked helps provide the motivation, gamification, and real-time information to get outdoors and drive you to the finish line and climb that leaderboard.”
Klocked P4 AI
Klocked helps everybody to get outdoors and provides daily real-time motivation towards healthy living. The Klocked P4 AI system augments a user's experience with real-time and interval audio cues making fitness fun, competitive, and gamified. Klocked not only equips users with motivation, but with real-time information and data that is not available anywhere else. Klocked P4 AI includes Place, Placement, Performance, and Personal Best Augmented Reality (AR).
Klocked P4 AI creates real-time Place AR audio cues with landmark announcements. Major landmarks on hundreds of courses around the world are viewable to spectators and in replays / highlights, but while exercising Place AR lets users know about location and landmark information on the metaverse. The feature is free to all users and helps motivate athletes to make their way to the next landmark - coming up London’s Big Ben.
Placement AR announces current group run or race placement and placement changes in real-time providing up-to-date race information that is not even available in many physical race situations. So often in physical races the runners around you could be in a different event / distance. Not only do athletes know who is gaining and who is out front, pace change recommendations are available to push athletes to finish a new best.
Performance AR cues include interval pace, cadence, and other sports science statistics. Several competitor apps include performance cues, but with Klocked P4 AI these stats now have a context based on activity history, course history, and competitor performance.
Personal Best AR
Finally, no other running experience offers real-time analysis of current activity performance for the potential to achieve a personal best. Klocked P4 AI does real-time analysis against previous activities and if the current activity performance is within reach of a new personal best, the Personal Best AR system announces pace adjustment recommendations to the athlete through audio cues. No other running technology offers this real-time coaching.
Boston Common 5k Real-time Race and Virtual Run
P4 AI and AR cues are available exclusively in Klocked and the November 27 Boston Common 5k Hybrid Real-Time Race Experience and Virtual Run. All real-time and virtual participants will receive physical and digital race t-shirts, digital finisher’s medals, augmented reality race bib, and placement recognition for overall and division winners.
Klocked app participants will be able to choose between teleporting to Boston for the real-time race experience on November 27 or the virtual run from November 28 to December 12.
