SINGAPORE - 31 October 2019 - Singapore smart wearables IoT platform company KaHa has announced a two-day roadshow on the 2nd and 3rd of November in partnership with JCube, a mall participating in the Health Promotion Board (HPB)'s Health Promoting Mall Programme. As part of its ongoing efforts under this programme to promote healthier lifestyles, JCube collaborates with KaHa to introduce rope jumping and its myriad of benefits to mall visitors and convey the importance of exercise and physical activity.
Guests will also have the opportunity to try out Lifeflow, KaHa's innovative smart jump rope and take part in KaHa's 1-Minute Challenge - the participant with the highest number of skips will walk away with a set of Lifeflow.
"KaHa is delighted to host these activities as a way to promote healthier habits and more active lifestyles to people of all ages and levels of fitness. Together with JCube, we are excited to let consumers experience wearable technology, encourage self-monitoring, and empower them to take charge of their own health," said Pawan Gandhi, Founder and CEO of KaHa.
With its existing health- and fitness-promoting mall activities such as weekly K-Kardio workouts, JCube has always been more than just a shopping mall. This partnership with KaHa exemplifies JCube's commitment to adding value for its patrons, as the mall believes in not only delivering goods, but also delivering 'good'. As a Health Promoting Mall, JCube is a strong and influential advocate for a healthier and more active lifestyle, and strives to create a tangible and positive health impact on its customers.
Offering tangible Health, Fitness, and Wellness solutions
According to a 2018 report by the World Health Organisation (WHO), 23% of adults and 81% of adolescents globally are not sufficiently active, resulting in an increased risk of various serious diseases including coronary heart disease and stroke, diabetes, hypertension, various cancers such as colon and breast cancer, and even depression.
Cognizant of this growing public health issue, KaHa has developed a range of wearable devices that will equip users with more control over their health and fitness than ever before - made possible by allowing them unfettered access to a treasure trove of health data. Combining KaHa's in-house COVE® technology and sleek, lightweight design for all-day wearability, KaHa's wearables provide the ability to monitor one's health and fitness conveniently. The less exercise-inclined will now have one less excuse to skip a workout!
Visitors of JCube will be able to check out some of these wearable devices, all thoughtfully designed and built with the company's proprietary COVE® IoT platform. With the user's health, fitness, and wellness in mind, these include a hybrid-display smartwatch that monitors blood pressure and heart rate and a range of smart fitness apparels and bands that make workouts both fun and provide the data one needs to stay on top of his or her health. Engineered to empower users with practical and actionable solutions for health, fitness, and overall wellness, the public will be able to touch, feel and even try on these technologies at the roadshow.
Get Fit, Stay Healthy
KaHa's health and fitness solution encompasses a range of tech features and functions across its various wearable offerings, including Lifeflow, a smart jump rope with fitness tracking and health monitoring capabilities; a blood pressure and heart rate monitoring watch; a smart fitness T-shirt; and a fitness band. These feature-packed devices promote healthier habits and empower the user with all the data and information he or she needs in order to take charge of his or her health and fitness.
These include features such as activity tracking (including steps, distance travelled, and calories burnt), sedentary alert, 'Nudges' and reminders to encourage physical activity, ECG (electrocardiogram), heart rate and blood pressure monitoring, as well as a means to contact a doctor or the emergency services, if necessary. The latter, in particular, ensures that KaHa's smart wearables provide not only information on a user's health and fitness, but also a tangible, workable solution to a potential health problem. Furthermore, the devices function as a Fitness Coach as they provide tailored training programmes for the individual based on personal needs and goals -- whether to shed a few kilograms or train for a cross-country marathon.
KaHa also offers a solution for a common complaint amongst the less fitness-inclined - the 'problem' of boredom in exercise. KaHa's COVE®-powered fitness band features an innovative Virtual Run function, which provides the user an immersive, otherworldly experience, allowing one to run through some of Singapore's most famous attractions, such as along the Singapore's heralded F1 Marina Bay circuit. From navigating the leafy avenues of Sentosa Cove to a beachside jog at Changi Beach, KaHa's Virtual Run will ensure that boring runs around the neighbourhood will be a thing of the past.
Unwind and Let Loose
However, true wellness is not limited to physical health and fitness. At KaHa, we are firm believers in the importance of a holistic approach to wellness -- particularly in today's fast-paced, high-pressure society.
To this end, KaHa has developed a wellness solution that is the perfect complement to its health and fitness offerings. As part of KaHa's Stress & Fatigue Management strategy, its smart wearables employ health monitoring functions such as ECG and heart rate monitoring to assess the user's stress levels.
Taking it a step further, KaHa's COVE® technology will then recommend activities or actions in accordance with the health data it has collected -- providing the user with recommendations to visit a spa or see a doctor, for instance. It doesn't end there: COVE® will even recommend nearby spas and other Wellness facilities to the user, allowing for easy and convenient access to relaxation and retreat.
Exciting new products on the horizon
Within the fourth quarter of 2019, KaHa is set to unveil a new range of fitness wearables that promises to be more than just your average smart device. Taking a holistic approach to health and wellness, they leverage on KaHa's cutting-edge COVE® platform to perform multifunctional roles, all from a sleek, lightweight device on the wrist.
