The Hungarian-developed HeartBit offers a medical-grade heart examination for its users while exercising. The wearable smart device has gone beyond simple heart rate monitor solutions to capture and analyze real-time ECG data, helping to optimize workout and workout efficiency.
According to the latest 2018 report from IDC (International Data Corporation), published in March 2019, while manufacturers’ sales of mobile phones have declined, the market for wearable smartphones – activity meters, smart watches and bracelets – has grown well.
Sport is an integral part of our daily lives, so it is no coincidence that the latest technological solutions are soon appearing on the sports equipment market. Activity monitors are gaining in popularity, and the market is expected to reach $ 34 billion by 2020.
HeartBit is a smart device that measures exercise ECG during physical activity in real time (most commercially available heart rate monitors do not measure ECG in the first place). It is able to select the relevant data from the measured data mass and draw real physiological conclusions. It helps to improve physical endurance without exposing the athlete to cardiological risk.
In today’s fast-paced world, it is not always clear where the line between safe training and cardiac overload is. By examining electrical signals generated by the heartbeat, the HeartBit device can detect signs of arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation and other abnormalities. The primary goal of the developers is to alert HeartBit to the user at the first sign of danger. In addition, workout optimization can improve workout efficiency. HeartBit’s algorithm offers a personalized workout plan for the sport, based on users’ physical fitness, sports habits and weather conditions, using artificial intelligence.
