Cronovo: EKG technology on your wrist

crowdfunding-picCronovo is a new smartwatch that has purportedly taken complex hospital EKG technology and shrieked it into something you can wear on your wrist.

The device looks and feels like a regular smartwatch (classic steel band/face) but under the hood it is loaded with sensors including an ECG sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope and optical heart rate sensor.

In terms of functionality, you get the usual tracking of activity and sleep, as well as a daily calorie intake count. You also get social and text alerts. However, the list of its special features shows just how different this watch is from the pack:

  • Metabolism rate tracking to show the rate at which the body is losing or gaining weight;
  • Fitness rate tracking to show improvement over time;
  • Real-time training intensity tracking, providing coaching to meet each exercise goal;
  • Tracking effects of training;
  • Stress tracking;
  • Recovery tracking;
  • Continuous heart rate monitoring;
  • Heart rate variability tracking, which shows the unconscious system of your body which you cannot control;
  • Exact heart rate reading (within 99.9% accuracy);
  • Animated exercises;
  • Seven-minute workouts that provide coaching guidance to achieve a ‘double-calorie burn’ in minutes.

The watch can even issue instant email/text warnings to family members if readings indicate that there’s potential for a heart attack or stroke. The company says, the EKG monitor is the smallest of its kind, and it allows the wearer to see how their body is functioning.

This certainly is an impressive list, and we can’t help being a bit sceptical a startup can succeed where mainstream players have not. And we’ve all read some crowdfunding horror stories.

You also get custom fitness programs – offering workout tips while tracking daily caloric intake and the amount of sleep necessary to meet personal health goals. There are some other features as well that are detailed on their Kickstarter page.

Cronovo is water resistant and available in four designs – metal silver, black and leather strap editions, and a limited-edition rose gold style. Its power supply lasts a respectable five days.

This is certainly an innovative Kickstarter campaign that promises a whole lot. Can it really deliver? We will be very impressed if it does.
