One Device. Two Tablets.

CLMBR early on knew their product would pull double duty as an at-home and gym device. This made the need for two, built-for-use tablets. For the at-home version an expansive size plus premium audio was a must. For the gym, a smaller, commercial use unit with specialized connection features were the focus. Starting with industrial design to match the beautiful aesthetics of the climber, SweatWorks was challenged to design and build both devices, at the same time.


CLMBR approached SweatWorks with a fully designed climber and software UI. After the discovery sessions, plans were laid out to explore the industrial design for two tablets. The need included the creation of an MDM solution, connection strategies and internal build engineering. Industrial design iterated on designs for both exteriors of the tablets that included a custom mount that would work for both applications, directional grill design, and material exploration. Meanwhile, our hardware engineers were busy sourcing, speccing and creating POC’s for internal boards and components. Digital engineers wasted no time integrating music via and formulating Apple watch compatibility.
