Samsung Offshoot Makes Smart Belt That Monitors Your Overeating
This waistline wearable knows when you've been seated for too long and can stop you from eating an extra large meal
There’s a new product that transports the health wearable from the wrist to the waist. As a smart belt, sensors on the Welt measure your waistline, track your movement and monitor your progress against time.
The genuine leather strap of the belt has embedded magnets that can measure 28 to 44 inches. The battery lasts for 20 days so it can last for one month at the office.
Despite the rather sadistic name, the device has raised more than double it’s $30,000 Kickstarter goal. Pre-orders start at $99. Like smart golfer shoes that can coach players, the Welt began within the Samsung Labs before becoming an independent company.
