Made by Samsung, WELT is the wellness Belt that makes wearables fashionable. WELT tracks key health data and provides tips and warnings for your health.
The device is made by a team within Samsung’s Creative Lab, which is an in-house incubator that lets company employees play with ambitious ideas and turn them into full-fledged startups.
WELT can track the three main general health indicators: waist size, activity and food intake. For activity, WELT’s pedometer tracks steps taken while the belt also tracks sitting time. As the first belt wearable for everyday use, WELT is the first health tracker that can integrate all four of these functions.
Waist size is a key starting point for gauging overall health. WELT’s magnetic waist sensor is embedded in the buckle and tracks your waist size in real time. Monitor your progress over time as WELT can sense waist sizes from 28 to 44 inches in circumference.
