LVL simultaneously tracks your hydration, heart rate, and activity to help you optimize every workout, training set and race. It then prompts you in real-time, alerting to exactly how much fluid you need ( based off of current levels and sweat rates ) and what type of performance boost you can expect. 

 

Sleep is one of the most important parts of your day. Research shows that people who sleep better feel better and think fast, and that hydration is one of the keys to unlocking a better night’s sleep.

LVL’s simple, clear interface provides the essential information at a glance on a rich full color OLED touch screen, with side buttons for additional input. It connects via BLE to your smartphone, sports watch, bike computer and other devices for a truly connected experience.

Word of mouth goes a long way, and we couldn’t have gotten where we are today without your passionate (vocal) support. So, to show our appreciation, we are going to give a FREE Kickstarter edition turquoise sport band to every backer who shares this project on Facebook or Twitter. Just click the button below to share!

The story of our beginnings is one of equal parts passion and obsession. It was one of those moments that’s terrifying when you’re going through it, but inspirational when you look back on it. The video below is of our founder and CEO who describes his inspiration for LVL and his shocking medical emergency that produced his passion for hydration monitoring.

LVL utilizes the same optical sensing technology that BSX developed for its first product, the BSXinsight, which measures lactate threshold in real time.

We've tested hundreds of athletes in our sweat lab for development of LVL–using gold standards in biometric sensing to refine the algorithms LVL uses to measure hydration.

We worked with frog, a world-renowned design and strategy firm, to translate LVL's technology to the wrist with an elegant design that is primed for mass production.

Unlike traditional devices on the market that use green light to measure heart rate from the wrist, we have spent the past four and a half years developing a revolutionary red light technology (actually near infrared light) that for the first time ever can measure dehydration, while also providing industry leading heart rate accuracy at the same time. Our red light sensor originates from the world of medical devices where accuracy is king. It can measure 10 times deeper into the body than green light can, which allows us to see more and measure it more accurate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It all started right here with these people—researchers, medical specialists, analysts, engineers, designers and most of all, serious athletes—who set out on a personal mission to make hydration a conscious part of our daily lives.

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We know we can't make a high quality finished product without strong relationships with our suppliers and manufacturing partners. We have already started to build that foundation with the successful launch of our previous product (also launched on Kickstarter) and have spent the past three years nurturing and maturing those relationships along with our own expanding internal team. There will be some differences as we move into larger scale manufacturing of a mass market device and are building a comprehensive team of mentors, consultants, and industry advisors to help guarantee our success.

We are incredibly proud to have shipped our first Kickstarter product on time. While there are always timeline risks with product development, we have fully validated LVL technology in functioning prototypes and are confident that we will deliver a high quality finished product on time and defect free.

Will there be issues and concerns along the way? Yes is the only real answer. Our supporters will continuously be informed on the progress we're making towards delivering their order. If an unforeseen issue poses a potential delay to our timing, then we will be transparent and timely in our communication to the people who are making our growth a reality.

The passionate supporters who support LVL on Kickstarter are our most important asset. Thank you for believing in us. We will do whatever it takes to exceed your expectations. Thanks!
