Walking on a treadmill can be boring, so some people try to prop a book on it so they can read while they workout. What do you do if you have converted to ebooks and read exclusively on your iPad or what if you want to watch videos while you walk? Scosche has created a mounting system to allow you to use an iPad or iPad 2 while you workout. The fitRAIL Exercise Mount for iPad and iPad 2 is sturdy; it’s made of aluminum and steel with a polished finish. It holds your iPad/iPad 2 securely; your device sits on a tray and is stabilized with stickGRIP material and secured with a clip-on strap that attaches to the top of the iPad. It has rubber feet on the back to prevent scratches to the machine, too. It folds up and fits into a storage bag so you can throw it in your gym bag. Scosche says fitRAIL is also a great way to use the Scosche myTREK pulse monitor and app during workouts. Simply attach the arm strap monitor to track pulse, calories burned and time on their iPad or iPad 2. fitRAIL will work with treadmills, exercise bikes, elliptical machines, and other exercise machines, and it will also work as a horizontal tabletop stand or a typing stand when you’re not working out. It’s $49.99 at Scosche.
