You know what’s awesome? Belts! A belt makes it possible to keep your pants or whatever else in place. It’ also a fashion statement for many people, so it shouldn’t be an issue if belts transform into a fitness tracker similar to the watch.
Not everyone wants to wear a watch or even a band, so smartwatches and fitness bands won’t work for them. However, they would likely wear a belt, and that’s why we’ve decided to talk about a Kickstarter product known as the INIE BELT.
This product is designed to monitor the health of the wearer and to help with avoiding missed phone calls. Additionally, it’s ideal for those who tend to leave their smartphones in public areas. Basically, the INIE BELT is a smart belt, but not as bright as a smartwatch.
The INIE BELT has five key features
If health and fitness are important to you, then you’ll enjoy the Walking Tracker feature of this smart belt. It counts and records every step the user takes, and all statistics will show up on the smartphone app.
For those who want to make sure they do not sit idle for too long, the Idle Alert feature could be a wonder here. This belt will tell the wearer how long they have been sitting down, which is a sign to get up and stretch the legs for a bit.
Have you ever went to a restaurant where the food tastes like heaven? You’re sitting down, eating a tasty dish of Ackee and Saltfish with dumplings, boiled green bananas with boiled yam (it’s a Jamaican thing). During this time you’re playing with your phone, but after finishing your mean, you accidentally leave it on the table.
With the INIE BELT’s Phone Loss Notification feature, users will be alerted should they find themselves in this unfortunate situation.
Prone to missing phone calls? You’re not alone. With the Phone Call Alert feature, the smart belt aims to make missing important calls a thing of the past.
Every feature spoken of here needs to be active throughout the day, and that’s why this product comes with long battery life, well, at least that’s what the creators have said.
Additionally, the battery is rechargeable and can last up to 30-days on a single charge. Most importantly, the authors made it possible to replace the battery, but if everything goes well, it will take up to two years before the need arises.
“It just looks like a normal belt but more smart and fashion, it is designed to be worn for both causal and formal outfits. INIE Belt will be offered in variety styles to suit for both men and ladies,” according to the creators.
What is INIE BELT’s Kickstarter goal?
The guys behind this product are seeking a pledge of 80,000 HKD ($10,300). So far, there are 46 backers with 51 days to go.
