Exclusive: YU’s YUFit Band To Go on Sale Starting 29th July, Registrations open on 21st July
YU Televentures is venturing into the wearables segment and is starting with the YuFit fitness band. The registrations for the band will start from 21st July and will go on sale on 29th July. The Yufit band has been priced at Rs.999 and will be available exclusively through Amazon India.
The YuFit has an OLED display that tracks steps taken, sleep cycle and alerts about incoming calls and messages. The fitness band comes along with an accompanying app called HealthifyMe. This app calculates the calories of any food material you click along with suggesting a healthier alternative. On the fitness front, it gives access to group coaching, social fitness, motivation and more.
The company will also offer a free personal trainer for the first 1000 YuFit users. Along with the fitness band, YU also revealed another device known as the HealthYU cassette. This device measures body vitals such as ECG, skin temperature, blood oxygen saturation, heart rate and respiration rate and is is priced at Rs. 4,999. This small device can fit into your pocket and has two suction cups that help in attaching the device to a smartphone’s back cover. The device then pairs with an app working on the phone with Bluetooth, and once the pairing is complete, you can keep four fingers on the four sensors on the HealthYu to start tracking the body vitals.
