Samsung revealed its health-tracking smart belt at the CES in January 2016. The smart Welt by the Samsung spinoff company, the Welt Corporation, has now launched its Kickstarter campaign.
You can get a wellness belt to keep a tab on your eating habits, tracking your waistline, step counts, and the time you spend sitting.
Welt is the perfect marriage of style and technology. The smart waist belt tracks data relating to your health and offers suggestions as well as warnings to improve your fitness.
Welt comes in a host of colours including beige, burgundy, blue, black, light brown, brown, cobalt sea, cerulean wave, and navy. Welt tracks three key fitness indicators: activity, waist size, and food consumption.
A magnetic waist sensor is integrated into the buckle of Welt to track the waist size in real time. Welt can record waist sizes from 28-44 inches.
The pedometer embedded in Welt counts your steps as well as notifies you about the time you spend in the chair. Increased waist size is a direct result of higher calorie intake. Based on the food you eat, your waist size can expand and contract in up to 30 minutes. Welt monitors these pattern to ensure you are not overeating!
Welt comes with an incredible battery life of 20 days. Once it runs out of juice, you can charge it via a micro USB port.
The accompanying app provides real-time feedback and offers actionable insights to the Welt users.
The Super Early Bird reward for Welt is all gone. But, you can still pledge for an Early Bird reward whereby you can get your Causal Welt for $99. The Classic and Premium models come in more dashing styles and are priced higher than the Casual version.
Since the Kickstarter campaign has already garnered more than $70,000, it will surely get funded, and you can have your Welt by January, just in time to keep track of those New Year Resolutions!
