After having witnessed a diversified range of wearables in the market here we are with Boltt, one of the first wearable that would use Artificial Intelligence. The makers of Boltt claim that they have carefully knitted the ecosystem consisting of AI Health Coach and wearable hardware.


Boltt has joined hands with Garmin, a company that has been leading the wearable seen. The synergy between Boltt and Garmin is to ensure that the unique sensor they are working on will not just capture all the data but do so in an intuitive manner. As it is evident the volume of data collected from the sensor is useless until and unless it shapes up into crucial information.

As of now wearables mostly measure up the data and then represent the same via the companion app but leaves out the rather crucial step of making sense from the data to the users. Boltt aims at changing this by trying to deduce your activity and then further suggest users on how they can better their lives. In essence, the Boltt wants AI to pilot the scene instead of actually hiring fitness trainers, something Goqii (physical trainers) has been doing all along.

If scaled accordingly the Artificial Intelligence can make the wearables so much more sensible, for instance, the wearable I am using doesn’t take into consideration the inclination of which I am cycling, a very important piece of information that could make a difference. It will also take into account daily routines and then suggests the users on whether they have to make some amends in their nutrition intake. The virtual Boltt trainer simulates the human coach and guides the user at every step of his daily workout. Additionally, a wearable like Boltt can shape up as a great tool for sportsmen to get insights on their practice and maybe share the same with their coach.

Boltt plans to launch the product across 13 countries and is currently calling out for the consumer previews.
