The purpose of design team 08’s senior design project is to create and implement a workout device that will be able to calculate the caloric expenditure, repetitions, and length of a workout. Once the duration of a workout is completed, the user metrics will be communicated from the kettlebell system to a user application via Bluetooth. The caloric expenditure will be used using the data that is provided from the accelerometer. The duration of the workout will be controlled using a push button that is connected to the kettlebell system that will allow for the start and stop of a workout. A repetition will be calculated using the accelerometer in which a count will occur once a threshold acceleration is reached. In addition to the features stated above, the system will be recharged wirelessly through inductive charging. Overall, this product will be quite useful for its user as it will be able to keep track of workout metrics and accurately measure the caloric expenditure throughout the duration of a workout.
