If you haven’t heard of Boltt, you’d be forgiven. The startup from India spent the last year working on their product and includes a collaboration with Garmin in the design of their sensors. They are now ready to show the world that the sky’s the limit when it comes to their wearables.
For a start, the company is peddling 3 products along with their proprietary AI coaching and analysis platform. There’s the connected shoe, a fitness tracker and a stride sensor for those who’d rather not purchase the shoe.
You don’t need all 3 products to use the Boltt ecosystem; just either one of the hardware and Boltt’s mobile app which is both Android and iOS compatible. As of publication, the mobile app is not ready for testing yet.
The Connected shoe tracks a myriad of data such as speed, calories, stride length and even running economy. The wrist band fitness tracker functions as an all day activity tracker which is capable of differentiating between light, deep and REM sleep! Lastly, the stride sensor functions identically to the connected shoe but with the options to wear it on user’s choice of footwear or tied around the ankle.
All the data is then synced to Boltt’s mobile app.
From a library of 200+ fitness workouts designed by global fitness experts, real time AI powered coaching over connected earphones, post workout analysis on how to improve performance, to recommendations on exercise and diet which are designed to fit your schedule AND weight goals; Boltt has basically curated the best of all the wearable features on the market for their own line of products.
And I’m just merely scratching the surface of what the ecosystem promises to do. The pièce de résistance of the entire ecosystem is an AI powered voice coach that dishes out real time dynamic feedback based on your performance. Sounds awesome doesn’t it.
Well the proof of the pudding is in the eating so we’ll wait for August 2017 for the initial reviews.
