Smart Kettlebells: Are They a Thing?

Smart phones, smart fridges, smart homes; it seems that none of us can escape the smart revolution that’s taking over the world. One area that is completely new in its use of smart technology is fitness, and more specifically, the beloved smart weights superstar, the kettlebell.

The Consumer Electrics Show is a great place to showcase what amazing innovations have occurred in electrics, and there seems to be a huge focus on health and fitness at the 2019 event. One of the coolest inventions was the smart kettlebell, and it has the potential to change the way we work out.

CES Kettlebell

We might never have imagined a time when a kettlebell could benefit from technology, but that time is among us. The CES 2019 was the first to feature this amazing new device, so we want to find out exactly what it can do.

What Does A Smart Kettlebell Do?

The launch of the smart kettlebell at CES 2019 was certainly a game changer. Developed by JaxJox, this amazing new device called the KettlebellConnect features adjustable weights that let you change your workout without doing anything but pressing a button. The adjustable weight kettlebell will change in 6-pound increments to suit your needs, and you can see it all happening on the screen.

Like any good piece of smart tech, there’s also a customizable app that comes with the Kettlebell Connect. You’ll be able to track your complete workout, check your reps, find your recommended kettlebell weight, and make a specific routine that will help you reach your fitness goals. As far as exercise goes, this seems to be the way of the future.

Currently, the JaxJox Kettlebell Connect is still in the early stages and so the price is quite high. The base model costs around $350 and is pretty basic in what it can do, but it’s a good sign of the times. You can adjust your workout and kettle weigh with the touch of a button and log everything you do so you can analyze it as you need.

The Workout Of The Future

Smart technology seems to be infiltrating just about everything we do these days. The addition of this tech to our everyday workout routines and accessories means we can transform the way we exercise, and often for the better.


Although it’s still early days for products like the JaxJox Kettlebell Connect and other related smart gym equipment, it’s a good sign of what to come. This takes away so many of the problems and annoyances that come with working out with a kettlebell and makes them easier to use, so anything that can do that is sure to be a game changer.
