How Does Healbe GoBe2 Automatically Track Calorie Intake?
Until now, keeping track of how many calories you eat has been a tedious, error-prone process. You log meals, weigh portions, scan bar codes, or just guess — and at the end of the day, you’re left with an inaccurate estimation that doesn’t truly help you find balance in what you eat.
Healbe GoBe2™ is different. This wearable body manager is the only way to automatically track calorie intake — and it does it through your skin, with no logging or guesswork. Only GoBe2 uses your body’s own information to tell you how many calories you’re actually consuming—so you can simply wear it and go be you!
How automatic calorie tracking work?
To understand how GoBe2 automatically tracks calorie intake, take a look at this infographic.
When you eat, food travels to your stomach to be broken down and digested. 10-15 minutes after you eat, your body starts converting the carbohydrates in your food into glucose. This process continues for up to 4-6 hours, depending on what you eat and your body’s unique physiology.
As glucose concentrations rise, your cells absorb glucose and release water. Fat and protein in your food influences the rate of glucose absorption — leading to different shapes and durations of the “glucose curve,” which GoBe2 measures.
GoBe2 uses an impedance sensor to measure the fluid moving in and out of your cells — continuously, around the clock. Healbe FLOW™ Technology uses an advanced algorithm to analyze impedance readings and calculate calorie intake based on your glucose curves, giving you a complete picture of your calorie and nutritional intake over time.
Between October and December 2018, the Red Cross Hospital (in Guangzhou, China) also validated the GoBe2 ability to track energy expenditure (or calorie burn) accurately.
The energy expenditure tests were performed on 13 healthy volunteers between the ages of 20 and 50 years. Each completed two test sessions. Tests included typical physical activities (sedentary state, walking, and running). The study confirmed the GoBe2’s high level of accuracy related to energy expenditure (or calorie burn) estimations during a treadmill activity and routine activity measurements.
