Breathalizer Tells Users If They Are Losing Weight
Breezing measures your metabolism using indirect calorimetry and offers customized diet and exercise guidance.
- 5 february 2013
Breezing is a portable metabolism tracker that syncs with your smartphone or tablet and provides guidance for reaching your weight goals. Developed by a team of researchers and engineers, the small device measures your metabolism using “indirect calorimetry.” Metabolic information tells you how many calories you need to lose, gain, or maintain weight.
To use Breezing, you simply insert the sensor cartridge into your mouth and breathe. It then syncs to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth and sends information wirelessly to the Breezing mobile app.
This tells you the number of calories your metabolism burns everyday, whether you’re burning carbohydrates, fats, or a mix of both, the total number of calories you burn (metabolism + activity level) depending on how active you are, your metabolism over time, and your weight progress.
Based on your unique metabolic profile and individual goals, Breezing gives you diet and exercise advice customized to your needs. The app also lets you share your results through email, Facebook, and Twitter, so you can keep your family, friends, doctor, or trainer updated on your progress.
Breezing is currently raising funds on Indiegogo, where it is being offered in white, gray or red for $250. Watch the video below to learn more about the device:
