California-based fitness technology company GOQii (which has its Indian office in Mumbai) has launched its latest product, GOQii Heart Care, comprising the GOQii 2.0 band and a heart care service.
The GOQii Heart Care app will help people using the new GOQii 2.0 band, which has a heart rate sensor, connect with cardiovascular specialists. The company has partnered with Max Hospital for this service.
Once the user shares his or her health and heart rate data for analysis through the tracker, the doctor will go through the data and provide specific inputs. If required, they will refer the user to a cardiac specialist at Max Hospital or some other partner hospital.
The GOQii 2.0 band and heart care service will be available on Amazon from February 14, 2017 at a subscription rate of Rs 2,999 for six months and Rs 3,999 for 12 months, respectively.
GOQii was founded in 2014 by Vishal Gondal and has so far raised $13.4 million in funding from investors like Cheetah Mobile, Ratan Tata and Paytm’s founder, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, among others.
