Batch 2 Shipments Initiated, Batch 1 held up shipment clarifications, Product improvements and more.

We're glad to update that the second batch has been processed completely for shipping and is expected to be dispatched this weekend. We've tied up with DHL and seems about a week of delivery lead time. Hope to be able to share the tracking details by Monday/Tuesday. We've had a more stringent QC process with us founders getting more hands on and have set up a much more evolved and reliable logistics setup, as we've had a learning curve from our initial experience :)

For people who haven't still received the batch 1 shipments, or whose tracking have shown no progress, we're following up just as vigorously with SwissPost. We know some of you have suggested that we should ship out new units via more reliable carriers and keep a deadline to estimate the lack of delivery. Keeping that in mind, we have agreed to keep the end of next week as that deadline (i.e. April 23) and we better hope they are delivered within those dates, for our sake.

The last couple of weeks may have been the most crucial and the craziest weeks of our journey so far. We've had very very rich engagements with our users, which has led to a lot of initial issues being resolved very quickly with the product and its software and we commend you guys for your patience. We've already had a few app updates and firmware updates to take care of the initial feedback and are a lot more confident now. We will continue to work tirelessly and passionately by taking your feedback positively to make this the product what you want it to be :)

Some of the resolved issues within the last couple of week include integration of workout and 24 hour data, resolving steps mismatch, reducing syncing issues due to android fragmentation while we're continuously running a variety of test cases to understand more sync fail conditions as that seems to be the #1 problem now on highest priority, increasing user-friendliness / UX around exercise recording and training and improvement in actual identification and elimination of a number of bugs.

Lastly, I apologize for all tickets not being answered, we've missed a few in between, but we were swamped with a much higher number than what we expected, given which we've increased our efficiency and will revert back within the same day for any ticket and we encourage you guys to continue to raise tickets for any personal questions. Thanks again for being part of this journey with us.

Wearable Tech fitness startup Actofit 100% funded on Indiegogo

 

Actofit - The world's first fitness tracker that auto-tracks comprehensive indoor workouts and provides data driven actionable insight.

Actofit is an Indian wearable tech startup with a developed wearable wrist-wear and a complete software algorithm platform that tracks not only your steps & heart rate but goes deeper into advanced motion tracking to track comprehensive & granular workout statistics; creating seamless logs, allowing you to evaluate data to make informed decisions.

Through its versatility and innovation, Actofit is able to auto identify 75+ gym exercises, count sets & reps, measure continuous heart rate, estimate velocity, force and power for every exercise and can also be used for the rest of the day as a regular fitness tracker. It aims to help fitness enthusiasts track their complete workouts, evaluate forms and sessions, maintain optimum heart rate, and use the data to make informed decisions.

Actofit uses 9 axis motion sensors to track movement in the 3D space. Using machine-learning algorithms, Actofit has built an activity identification platform and has multiple pending patents. Although the product is launched in the fitness space, the software platform is capable and allows users to add or customize any kind of motion & track it, which has applications across different sports, yoga, physiotherapy and more.

The basic idea here is to eliminate the need for manual entry of workout logs in your apps as well as to provide more relevant information which was previously not available to the individual.Logging that happened manually, is now automated with data science. Where ordinary Fitness trackers with just step counters motivate users to take more steps and live healthier lives, will Actofit increase motivational levels amongst gym goers, where about 2/3rd of gym members are not regular gym goers.

To be shipped to the backers in Q1 2017, Actofit is more versatile and unique than anything that is available in the markets today. The wearable still tracks sleep, steps, running, continuous heart rate and provides for call/text alerts, notifications, calendar reminders, idle alerts and is designed to be water-resistant (IP67). It is designed to the perfect embodiment for an active lifestyle user. You can see the Indiegogo campaign at http://IGG.me/at/actofit

How exactly does Actofit Fitness tracker work?

How exactly does Actofit Fitness tracker work?

We truly believe Actofit is going to be a game-changer for the way workouts are tracked and analysed.

Tracking of exercises create awareness. Currently, members log their workouts on a clipboard or a mobile app manually. It's helps define the cause of progression or lack of it.

With Actofit’s activity identification platform, more than 75 exercises are recognized automatically; reps and sets counted, heart rate measured, exercise specific calorie burn calculated. Logging that happened on paper, is now automated with data science.

This allows us to evaluate what’s working vs. whats not; where we are against where we want to be.
We understand every individual movement is unique. Not only do Actofit trackers identify pre-trained exercise movements, they also allow users to customize and build their own database. Our machine learning algorithms adapt themselves to your individual patterns and track your sessions based on your form.

The gym industry and its use of technology is traditionally very rudimentary. As wearable technology clashes with the old fashioned side of the gym, there is an opportunity to extract value. Velocity output helps dictate how much load you should be adding or removing on a particular set, or if you should move on and try a new exercise altogether; using the measurement of the bar speed and work to understand the force production. Velocity Based Training takes the guesswork out of your training and is being increasingly used by more and more trainers off late. At Actofit, we are working on measuring set by set change in force, velocity and total work output of every session.

Nature has blessed us with amazing bodies. A majority of us want to exercise, yet only 3% of the global adult population are documented gym members and more than 50% of the gym members are not regular. Technology has started playing such a pivotal role in influencing our generation, right from having kids play more Wii than real sports, or most of us more active with friends virtually than in reality. Then why can’t we use some technology to get more users to go to the gym and more importantly go back for the next session and optimize their training and enhance their experience. With Actofit, we will make that positive impact and bridge the gap between gyms and wearables.
