Boltt goes all in on AI-fitness bet

We looked at Boltt during 2016 when they were just kicking off. At the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Indian start up put all their cards on the table, announcing their “triple threat fitness system”.

Arnav Kishore, CEO and Founder, Boltt Sports Technologies said “Our triple-threat fitness systems have been demonstrated at CES for the first time. Our vision is to change the regular fitness regimes and upgrade it with a combination of new-age thinking and technology. Boltt will be a one-stop solution place for the user’s health and fitness needs”.

The Boltt triple-threat system comprises of the Boltt Connected Shoe which can measure biomechanical data, a wrist-worn 24/7 tracker called the Boltt Smart Band, and the Boltt Stride Sensor that can be attached to any shoe to measure stride length, ground impact time, speed, cadence, distance, calories, steps and workout efficiency.

All of these come together in an app that integrates AI (articifcal intelligence) to create a virtual coach, called the Virtual Health Assistant, to guide your training.

“Our plan is to take the Boltt wearables mainstream by tapping major use cases across fitness chains, sports academies, corporates, schools and insurance companies. This will be in addition to the direct offline and online retail channels across the US, Asia, and Europe. We are looking at becoming a leading player in the digital health ecosystem. We will also soon be integrating other wearables with the Boltt Health and Fitness App. The mission is to make our AI as scalable as possible” said Kishore.

The Boltt products will be available through Kickstarter in the coming weeks.
