WELT looks like a normal belt but can monitor a wide range of health data. The device tracks waist size, activity, and overeating to provide comprehensive health analysis while also providing health guidance via the smartphone app.
For activity, WELT’s pedometer tracks steps and calorie burn taken while the belt also tracks sitting time. Abdominal fat is a product of excess calorie intake. Based on calorie intake, your waist can expand and contract over a duration as short as half an hour. WELT keeps track of these rapid variations in waist size to monitor patterns of overeating.
As for charging, the battery is rechargeable through a micro USB cable and can last an impressive 20 days with just one charge.
Welt Corporation has certainly come up with an original concept. The project has definitely captured the public’s imagination as indicated by the amount of money raised to develop the product on Indiegogo.
