At the CES 2017, Boltt, a new fitness wearable technology company, announced the launch of advanced fitness wearables and an AI-enabled mobile health app. The range of products include connected shoes, stride sensors, fitness trackers, and a virtual health assistant named ‘B’. The founders – Arnav Kishore and Aayushi Kishore – aim to solve lifestyle disorders in youth due to lack of awareness & knowledge around health.

Boltt mobile app brings together the wearables and advanced analysis to enhance health, lifestyle, training, and sports performance. The application comes along with a virtual assistant that interacts with the users and gives real-time voice coaching and interactive feedback on health and training, throughout the day.

Our triple-threat fitness systems have been demonstrated at CES for the first time. Our vision is to change the regular fitness regimes and upgrade it with a combination of new-age thinking and technology. Boltt will be a one-stop solution place for the user’s health and fitness needs.

– Arnav Kishore, CEO and Founder, Boltt Sports Technologies

The flagship product of the line-up is the connected shoes that come equipped with functionalities like energy bounce back, impact absorption, supportive cushioning balance, and balanced gripping ground control for a comfortable and natural movement. The Stride Sensor that comes embedded inside the shoes can be clipped on any shoe or be worn with the help of an ankle band and can analyze performance metrics for sports like soccer, rugby, hockey, and other field sports.

Mark Steele, a Sports Scientist and Biokineticist from South Africa, shared that the company has created a powerful tech-enabled sports training platform called Specialised Sports Performance (SSP) that will analyze data from the Boltt Stride Sensor and provide real-time feedback by displaying essential metrics of training and well-being for each player for coaches to observe.

The products will be available for pre-order later this month as part of the company’s Kickstarter campaign after which they’ll target direct offline and online retail channels across the US, Asia, and Europe.
