Claim of US Patent No. 11,027,172

1. An exercise device comprising:a body having a first end and a second end, wherein the first end is configured to receive a handle attachment;
a first connection component disposed at the second end of the body and configured to attach the exercise device to a first resistance component,
a sensor coupled to the first connection component;
a processing circuit disposed in the body of the exercise device communicatively coupled to the sensor; and
a rotatable display communicatively coupled to the processing circuit and configured to rotate along one or more axes and display information based on an output of the sensor,
wherein the processing circuit is programmed to:
detect a change in force during a movement of the exercise device;
subtract a hysteresis value from a target force once a detected force equals the target force;
while the detected force is above the target force less the hysteresis value, increment a time-under-tension clock; and
in response to detecting that the detected force falls below the target force less the hysteresis value, stop the time-under-tension clock.
