CES 2017: Boltt launches AI fitness coach, prepares for Kickstarter campaign

Boltt Smart Technologies started the new year off with a bang. The Indian outfit unveiled its new product portfolio at a press conference at CES 2017 on January 6th. It also provided live demonstrations of its AI Health and Fitness Coach, Connected Shoe, Stride Sensor, and Smart Band during the four day long technology show in Las Vegas.

“Our triple-threat fitness systems have been demonstrated at CES for the first time. Our vision is to change the regular fitness regimes and upgrade it with a combination of new-age thinking and technology,” said Arnav Kishore, CEO & Founder, Boltt Sports Technologies.

“Boltt will be a one-stop solution place for the user’s health and  fitness needs”

When it comes to activity trackers, there has always been something missing. Sure, we get lots of data, and trackers are getting better at churning out these statistics. But for the most part, we are left on our own to make sense of the data and draw meaningful conclusions.

Boltt wants to change this with its new ecosystem of products. To show they are serious, they’ve partnered with Garmin, one of the leading global wearables manufacturers. Together they are creating unique sensors that will capture all forms of mechanical and cardiovascular body data.

Boltt’s Connected Shoe is embedded with sensors to track advanced bio mechanical data, such as stride length, ground impact time, speed, cadence, distance, calories, steps and workout efficiency. The iOS and Android compatible Boltt Life App offers real-time coaching and useful insights and guidance, such as running form feedback, fat burn and injury prevention tips. In essence, it functions as a virtual fitness trainer that pushes and encourages you during your workouts.

With 24/7 activity tracking, the Boltt Smart Band measures your hourly steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned and flights climbed. The auto-sleep tracking measures your Deep, Light and REM cycles and gives insights to help you get a good night’s rest. The wearable also monitors your heart rate and keeps you updated on emails, calls and texts. When you’re not training, the health and fitness coach chats with you like a friend. It analyses your eating habits, sleep and activity patterns and assigns bite-sized tasks every day.

Boltt has created a bold vision – an ecosystem of advanced wearables and a virtual coach to help users improve their fitness & health. Can this startup really become a worthy competitor to Fitbit and the likes? Only time will tell. The team believes that the mobile application will be their biggest differentiator.

You can pre-claim the product now on Bolt’s website. The company will be launching on Kickstarter soon to raise funds for final production.
