The GOQii Life fitness tracker provides a personal fitness expert to keep you motivated
Bangalore, May 18 2015: Personal fitness is a priority for most of us, but a strong fitness goal comes needs a lot of self-motivation, adherence to targets and the will to just keep going – day after day.
This is not an easy task -- and the main reason why fitness goals fizzle out. The folks at Indian startup, GOQii, claim they have a solution:
The GOQii Life fitness tracker comes with a certified, fitness coach, accessible 24/7, whom you can personally choose based on your fitness goals. The coach monitors and analyzes data feed from the wearable band, like hours of sleep, number of steps taken, calories burnt, etc. You can also manually fill details of your daily food and water consumption through the GOQii app. There is a chat option, which lets you interact with the coach and get real-time advice. We found this pretty interesting, as it nudges you stay to motivated and clear doubts.
The app also comes with a unique concept of karma points. Those of us who feel motivated towards social causes can burn these Karma points for donations to various organizations.
The health band comes with a rubber strap and a removable OLED display, which tells you the time, number of steps taken, distance, and calories burnt with a single tap on its head. The rubber strap is minimalistic and light, but some might argue that it can be a wee bit uncomfortable after longer wear. There is also the chance of the display falling off from the strap if it’s not properly fitted. But we are happy to overlook these , considering, it is one of few health bands in the market with a live human being at the end of it, monitoring your goals every minute.
Priced at Rs. 3,999, the GOQii LIFE comes with 3 months subscription to the fitness expert. Other subscription packs are also available.
