From measuring athletic performance to tracking fitness, countless products offer personalized health and wellness feedback and data. This week’s startup wants to take that to the next level by providing a premium smart insole that can measure body weight and analyze your day-to-day behavior.
⚾ The Elevator Pitch:
We all love a good pair of shoes. They are an essential part of our lives. But when we think of shoes combined with technology, there isn’t something that comes to mind. Well, imagine if people could measure their daily physical activity and sitting time? Combine this with bodyweight calculation without standing on the scale? Sounds too good to be true? Embry is building just that.
Embry Insoles for shoes automate and register changes in the user's weight and analyze behavior based on different sensors, helping them reach their health goals.
