Keep, which started as a fitness application, developed its first smart treadmill, the K1, "and as of December last year, we have been topping the 'sports and fitness app user penetration rankings'. The 130 million registered users and 30 million monthly active users, from which we have obtained more than 900 million accumulated data, are precisely the basis of our product development and our advantage." Wang Liang, Vice President of Keep Sports Product Division, said.
In March this year, K1 debuted in Jingdong, and the first physical shop "Keepland (fitness space)" opened in Beijing Huamao Center at the same time. ...... This series of offline actions are aimed at the indoor fitness and outdoor running crowd, which has a huge population.

The company from Shenzhen specialises in the development and production of sports watches, "We have photoelectric heart rate watches, triathlon watches, mountain climbing watches, fishing and diving watches, we have them all. 2013 has been the year when these products were available in China, but the growth has been rapid in the past two years." Chen Wei said.
Undoubtedly this is related to the continued rise of outdoor sports represented by road running, cycling and mountaineering, driving the consumption of sports equipment to explode. According to the 2017 China Sports Development and Consumption Report, statistics show that the scale of domestic road running event participation in 2017 was close to 5 million people, and the regular participation in the mountain outdoor population exceeded 60 million people.
Running shoes and sports watches have become the standard for road runners. "I used to run with a heart rate band, it was strangling, now I want to buy a piece with photoelectricity, it saves me time and is comfortable." The young man said this.
Since 2014, wearable devices represented by smart watches have become the new darling of the sports and health market. Ups and downs, like the production of sports bracelets Nike FuelBand, Fitbit, Jawbone up in a predicament, but sports watches, smart clothing is still growing promising.
