Where the wearable really stands out, thought, is in its claim that it can accurately measure metabolic rate. It does this by using medical-grade EKG. Your metabolic rate falls fast when you are training hard and rises in recovery phase, while you are sleeping or eating. RocketBody uses this information to calculate something the company calls “supercompensation”, i.e. it works out the perfect time to train. Armed with this information, your workouts become significantly more effective.

Furthermore, this information is combined with a users training goals, heart rate and heart rate variability to design a set of customized exercises. The fitness band will even advise you when to eat to enable you to have the healthiest lifestyle possible. And, to help you stay worry-free, the wearable combines HRV and EKG data to warn you of oncoming stress.

“It is not just a fitness tracker and an app but wholesome integrated fitness approach that will change the way fitness is perceived.”
