In a bid to revolutionise the fitness wearable space, an Indian company, Boltt, has introduced smart shoes in the US which claims to scientifically improve running and fitness levels by giving real-time feedback to the consumer.
CEO and founder of Boltt, a Mumbai-based startup, Arnav Kishore introduced smart shoes, a range of smart bands, shoe pod sensor and wireless headsets at Tech Disrupt event in the Silicon Valley.
“Till now, all activity trackers and wearables gave data. We are conspiring to change that by inferring this data and giving it a meaning,” Kishore was quoted by PTI as saying.
This, he said will scientifically improve running, track and further fitness levels and show the consumer their health in a whole new way.
Playing with a combination of advanced fitness wearables, and an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Health Coach, the products represent a ‘connected fitness’ solution, accelerating quality of life for users, he argued.
Having partnered with Garmin, the world pioneer in wearable sensors, Boltt announced pre-orders for the wearables will open in October, followed by the commercial launch through credible e-commerce partners and strategic offline experience centers a month later. It plans to launch the products in 13 countries, in batches, through primary channels of sale.
