Form introduced the goggles in 2019, after spending two years experimenting with silicone rubber and 3-D printing to ensure the product not only worked, but was versatile enough to fit most faces.
The company has shipped 45,000 units so far this year, Mr. Eisenhardt said.
Fit Like a Glove
A former member of the USA Boxing team, Tommy Duquette, and his five partners spent nearly three years creating a device with a proprietary algorithm to detect punches. Called a punch tracker, the finger-long unit not only counts punches, but captures their volume, speed and output.
It remains at the heart of FightCamp, an at-home boxing-centric fitness system that includes a free-standing heavy bag; quick wraps for the hands, which have pockets for the trackers; and custom gloves (from $1,219). The program has three-minute workouts followed by one-minute rest sessions, grouped as in the form of four, six, eight or 10 rounds to give users plenty of options.
“Boxing is such a cathartic exercise,” said Mr. Duquette, chief content officer for FightCamp, “but not even a fighter is going to hit the bag every single day of the week.” As the brand has grown, workout diversity has become an important theme in FightCamp’s app ($39 a month), which now includes drills, core and recovery content.
Classes may create stamina, but the live leaderboard and versus mode, which allows a person to challenge others, keeps users returning, Mr. Duquette said, adding, “How cool is it to find a friend and challenge them to a workout?”
