Innovative projects are underway on all sides of the planet. From smart watches, fitness bands, smart shoes and jewelry that tracks your heart rate.
Without surprise, another company inspired by wearable tech has aimed to help athletes in their training. Kenzen Wear has shown amazing results with providing data which no other activity tracker can provide. Kenzen Wear created the Echo H2 patch for monitoring hydration, lactic acid, and glucose levels.
- Monitoring hydration levels will help athletes know when to drink or if they are hydrated/dehydrated.
- Lactic acid is naturally released in muscles. During exercise, higher levels are produced and from my understanding high levels appearing in your blood or sweat can indicate exhaustion. Reading these levels will help you learn when you can push harder or to ease it up.
- Glucose levels in sweat show real calorie measurement. Even an approximate value can reveal your level of metabolism. Given this information athletes will know if they need nourishment.
Manufacturing is set to begin early this year “2015”, and will be bundled with the following:
- Universal health monitor
- 20 H2 disposable Patches
- Kenzen mobile app
- USB charging cord
IndiGoGo campaign ended February 3rd. Raising 31,000 of the 75,000 goal will mean the charities will be returned. Despite the turn of events, the company is still working with partners and investors for manufacturing.
“ECHO H2 product development continues, and we’ve been in conversations with various partners and investors to get our manufacturing line started. We are still targeting a 2015 product launch, and will be setting up an online store at Kenzenwear.com for ordering.” Said Steve Pecko on IndieGoGo
