Fitti Guard – fitness tracker with environmental measurement

fitti-steelWith so many fitness trackers on the market, it’s hard to imagine how a new player will differentiate themselves from established players like Fitbit and Jawbone. GNS GmbH has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Fitti Guard.

The Fitti Guard has ten sensors for identifying and avoiding ultraviolet light exposure, poor indoor air quality, radioactivity and noise nuisance. A vibrating alarm and specific warning icons inform the user as soon as a predefined threshold of exposure is exceeded.

Fit Guard’s promise is to improve the health and well-being in your daily life.

The Fitti Guard bears a passing resemblance to the Pebble – arguably the smartwatch that started the wearable tech revolution. As well as counting your steps and calculate the distance and calories, an activity recognition algorithm based on a neural network detects the kind of activity you are performing. The integrated GPS and a barometric level sensor measures covered elevation and there’s a sleep tracking function a well.

GNS says the Fitti Guard has up to 21 days of battery life.

Fitti Guard can be pre-ordered from March 30th on Kickstarter and shipment is planned by the end of 2016.
