NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Slendertone, the world leader in developing advanced technology products that improve muscle tone, today announced Android compatibility for its Connect Abs. The Connect Abs is the first smart toning ab belt to actively engage and tone core muscles by delivering clinically proven technology to help men and women tone, firm and strengthen their core muscles in 6-8 weeks.
The FDA-approved Connect Abs helps users achieve their fitness goals of building a stronger core by employing Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) toning technology to create a gentle current that engages abdominal muscles, mimicking the body's natural muscle movements. Slendertone's patented gel pad placement targets and activates all three major abdominal muscles simultaneously for maximum toning, activating even the most difficult to reach core muscles responsible for defining the body's shape.
"We recognize that a strong core is the center of a healthy body and are thrilled that the Connect Abs is now accessible to the ever-growing, 1.8 billion strong Android market," said Mike Nohilly, Vice President, Slendertone North America. "We realized Android users' demand for versatile health and wellness products, and are excited for them to incorporate the Connect Abs into their fitness product ecosystem."
The Connect Abs utilizes the convenience of modern-day wearable technology to offer better compression and supplement users' regular fitness routines, allowing them to wear the ab belt while exercising at the gym, running errands or completing daily tasks.
The Android companion app acts as a virtual trainer by offering five goal-driven programs: Essential Toning, Upcoming Event, Post-Natal, Fitness, and Advance Toning. Each program offers customized user feedback, tracking, motivation, and content. Users can also access the app to track and share data points, including intensity levels, program and toning progress and F.I.T. scores – a weekly power score measuring a user's progress against their individual toning program including Frequency, Intensity and Toning, keeping them motivated to achieve their toning goals.
Slendertone's online portal serves as an immersive hub for users to track progress, and share content, including relevant fitness and exercise articles, videos and tips. Users also receive personalized communication including newsletters, content based on their motivation and usage behavior, and reminders to replace the patented gel pads after the appropriate amount of time.
The Slendertone Connect Abs is available now at www.Slendertone.com and in-stores and online at retailers nationwide including Amazon, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.
The Android companion app can be downloaded from Google Play. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bmr.slendertone

About EMS Technology
Slendertone products apply natural body science and deliver impressive toning results thanks to clinically-proven EMS technology. During exercise, your muscles naturally respond to signals sent by your brain and EMS technology works in the same way, reaching all targeted muscles in one short session while you carry on with your daily routine or as part of your exercise regime.
Slendertone's EMS technology is applied through pads positioned on selected muscle groups. The pads stimulate nerve endings that create deep, comfortable muscle contractions in all the surrounding muscles, not just those directly under the pads. As a result, targeted and neighboring muscles begin to strengthen and tone.
For maximum results, Slendertone products are to be used as part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
