Say goodbye to charging cables and hello to endless battery life with Baracoda’s new health tracker, BHeart. BHeart is a health tracker that boasts endless battery life and universal interoperability with existing wristwear. It aims to make health monitoring and fitness tracking easier, more accessible, and more sustainable. The device charges itself using Baracoda’s Bmotion energy harvesting technology, which means it charges through motion, body heat, and environmental light, which means Bheart will run on literally endless battery life. Smart sensors are integrated throughout the bracelet to accurately track health stats, which can be accessed through a companion app on iOS or Android devices. BHeart offers readings on body energy levels, mental resilience, sleep quality, activity level, and health status, providing personalized advice for improvement on a daily and long-term basis. It can be used as a standalone bracelet, as a bracelet for an existing timepiece, or as part of the bracelet of an existing timepiece.
BHeart is a wearable health tracker that can be worn as a bracelet or integrated into a watch band for an existing timepiece. Despite its unassuming appearance, it contains a variety of sensors and energy collection technology. The data collected by these sensors is analyzed by Baracoda’s AIoT platform, which provides insights about the user’s body energy, health status, mental resilience, activity level, and sleep quality. This information can be accessed through the BHeart smartphone app, which also provides personalized advice for improving health. In addition to tracking health indexes, BHeart allows users to monitor the energy they produce each day and over time, providing a way to see how their behaviour impacts their health and encouraging them to make daily improvements.
“The first health trackers were important for establishing that wearable technology can encourage healthier lifestyles, but we must reach more than athletes to improve public health,” said Thomas Serval, CEO of Baracoda.
“People of all ages and fitness levels need easier ways to track their health, so we must design products that fit into everyone’s lifestyles, including people who don’t find today’s technology accessible or easy to maintain.” Baracoda’s BHeart aims to make health and fitness tracking easier, more convenient, and more widely accessible, all while offering a longer lifespan than many current smartwatches. Using Baracoda’s patent-pending Bmotion energy harvesting technology, the BHeart charges itself through motion, body heat, and environmental light. It is equipped with smart sensors that gather data on body energy levels, mental resilience, sleep quality, activity level, and health status. This data can be accessed through a companion app on iOS or Android devices and serves as the basis for personalized advice for improvement. Made of sustainable leather and high-quality alloys, the BHeart is available in gold, silver, and dark silver and will be released in April 2023 for a starting price of $100. The companion app will be free to download but will go live in June.
“Helping people become healthier shouldn’t demand they take on entirely new routines, and technology doesn’t have to be disposable to be low maintenance,” added Serval. “We can build tech that lasts to build habits that last. It just has to be designed to fit into our existing lifestyles.”
