Samsung gets down and dirty with Tough Mudder
What are you doing this weekend? Well, if you’re the kind of person that likes to push their body to the limits, then here’s an idea for you.
Samsung kicks off its partnership at the Tough Mudder Yorkshire event tomorrow, July 29th, at Broughton Hall, Skipton. The partnership will run through to the end of the 2018 event season.
Samsung will enable participants to live life unscripted and use the technology in their Gear VR headsets, Gear 360 portable cameras and wearable fitness devices. Driving all of this will of course be the Galaxy S8 smart phones.
Let’s face it, if you’ve ever seen one of these courses you know they need all the help that they can get.
Samsung will also be developing training programmes across its best wearable fitness devices.
If you have survived a previous Tough Mudder, then Samsung has something just for you. Sammy is sponsoring the new-for-2017 Finisher obstacle Kong. This has been developed exclusively for Tough Mudder Legionnaires (those who have participated in at least one previous event).
Samsung will also be providing exclusive VR footage in the ‘Mudder Village’.
Also in the ‘Mudder Village’ everyone gets the chance to capture a memento of their Tough Mudder experience in 360. You will have the opportunity to be photographed hanging from the side of the container on ‘Kong 360’. At least it will look like you’ve had a go at an obstacle most participants cannot attempt.
