WELT can track the three main general health indicators: waist size, activity and food intake. For activity, WELT’s pedometer tracks steps taken while the belt also tracks sitting time. As the first belt wearable for everyday use, WELT is the first health tracker that can integrate all four of these functions.

 

 

Waist size is a key starting point for gauging overall health. WELT’s magnetic waist sensor is embedded in the buckle and tracks your waist size in real time. Monitor your progress over time as WELT can sense waist sizes from 28 to 44 inches in circumference.

 

 

Given the work-centered nature of modern life, it is difficult to find time to get up and move. Staying active is essential to a healthy lifestyle. With its embedded pedometer, WELT can track your Calorie burn by counting the steps you have taken.

 

 

WELT can also track your inactivity by calculating your sitting time throughout the day. WELT regards your stationary movement as sitting. Even with exercise, prolonged sitting has been proven to have associated health risks. WELT will ensure that both activity and inactivity periods are for healthy duration.

Note: sitting detection will include any stationary state such as standing

 

 

Abdominal fat is a product of excess calorie intake. Based on calorie intake, your waist can expand and contract over a duration as short as half an hour. WELT keeps track of these rapid variations in waist size to monitor patterns of overeating.

 

 

20 DAY BATTERY LIFE  

WELT's unbelievable battery life allows you to stay in style without having to charge constantly. Charged through a micro USB port, one full charge lasts for more than 20 days (varies by usage).

 

ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS

Taking all of this data, WELT curates personalized health guidance that can be seen using WELT’s mobile application.

 

ONE SCREEN FEEDBACK

Intuitively organized into one screen, there is no need to stress your brain over raw data that isn’t meaningful. WELT does the analysis for you and provides health insights and warnings so you can focus on staying active.

 

RESUMMARIZED DATA

Track your steps, sitting time, big meals (caloric intake), distance travelled, and caloric loss on one screen. All off these health factors are displayed through graphs and can be tracked daily, weekly and monthly.

 

AUTOMATIC GOAL SETTING

WELT’s health goals are personalized to YOU based on YOUR health data. Every body type and lifestyle pattern is different and WELT takes into account these variations. As more individualized data is accrued, WELT will become even more fine tuned to meet your fitness goals.

Risks and challenges

With WELT we have taken every step we can to ensure that we can deliver on everything that we have shown on our campaign page. Not only have we developed the sensors but we have also chosen the belt designs. Yet, with any new technology or fashion, unseen circumstances can arise during the mass production stage. We will do our absolute best to ensure that WELT not only performs but also looks as we have presented it.
