There are many fitness trackers on the market today, but its been a while since we’ve seen something truly new. A startup called Boltt wants to change all that. The company claims it is working on wearable and artificial intelligence products that could be a game changer for the connected health and wellness industry.
The Indian startup, which officially launches in October, is developing an ecosystem that consists of a connected shoe and wrist worn wearable that will be coupled with an AI health coach. To show they are serious, Boltt has 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.
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 then what? For the most part, we are left on our own to make sense of the statistics. Most of the data collected by fitness bands isn’t utilized properly.
This is the nieche Boltt hopes to fill. Combining science and technology, the startup has developed a Virtual Coach (called B) – an AI to replicate human thinking.
“Till now, all activity trackers and wearables gave data. We are conspiring to change that by inferring this data and giving it meaning. At Boltt, the goal is to deliver the next generation of premium, highly advanced connected technology, the world has not seen till now” said Arnav Kishore, CEO & Founder of Boltt.
The device and app will offer real-time coaching and feedback based on your movement. Which means the ecosystem will take the form of a virtual fitness trainer that pushes and encourages you during your workouts.
“B reads your Sleep, fitness, nutrition and activity data, stores them in one place; and give’s meaningful insights and guidance, on how to live healthier. Our wearable AI advancement is exploring the future capabilities of machines—the limits and extremes of their “intelligence” and their ability to replicate human thinking.” added Kishore.
