Boltt Beat HR Fitness Tracker Review

About Boltt

Boltt is a global wearable technology company headquartered in India that manufacturers smart shoes, fitness trackers, and sensors that work with the paired app to give athletes and their coaches valuable metrics to help make informed training decisions.

The company has been founded by the Indian duo Arnav Kishore and Aayushi Kishore. They have received a huge response from the Indian market.

“We have more than 700 workouts based on different principles of running. Those training plans are calculated on nutritional intake you’ll need, the amount of sleep required for recovery for example. There’s a voice coach and a wellness coach inside the app. You can chat in real time and it will take into account all of the data you log through the nutritional panel and the wearable. It doesn’t feel like a robot.”

– Arnav Kishore – Founder of Boltt

Boltt Product Offerings

Boltt currently has three product offerings for its customers

  • A smart shoe with an embedded stride sensor
  • Fitness Tracker for the wrist
  • The app which can also track your nutrition intake and other things.The App can be integrated with other fitness trackers if you would like to use just their AI platform with your Fitbit, Garmin, Tomtom, Jawbone, Polar or any other fitness trackers.

 

Design of Boltt Beat HR Fitness Tracker

Overall the tracker has a fairly good built quality with a unibody design which means it only has one piece.

The straps are rubberized and quite comfortable for normal users. At least we have not seen any complaints regarding the strap quality.

Screen is unibody and attached to the strap. It has a touch screen so you can toggle between various options by just tapping on the red button on the screen.

Display

Boltt Beat comes with an OLED display and the screen resolution is quite good. A little light in the direct sunlight and this is something the company needs to improve.

Battery Life

The company claims that the device’s battery is of around 7 days and after that it can be recharged. It varies from one person to another, based on their usage. If you switch on the Continuous heart rate sensor then the battery will last only 2-3 days.

How Boltt’s Coaching Methodology works for you?

The company states that they use artificial intelligence to track, monitor data and give advice to individuals depending upon their lifestyle.

Boltt Beat helps you to perform better during workouts. It tracks hourly calories, distance, step count, flights climbed, running, walking and active time.

Although there have been cases of buyers complaining about the accuracy of their tracker we really faced not much issues with their accuracy. The tracker gave us a 95% accuracy for step count and 98% accuracy for sleep.

Meet “B” – The Virtual Boltt Coach

Boltt has defined their coach that is named as ‘B’. It is Boltt’s Artificial Intelligence system that will interact with you daily as a 24/7 coach to give insights into nutrition, sleep and training.

Through the app, you’ll be able to talk to your coach ‘B’, log food from a million different types and take part in 200 different, guided fitness sessions that can give you real time feedback.

Its an interesting concept thats launched first time in the world in fitness trackers. Boltt has kept the price range very much affordable to tap the lower end of the customer base.

 

CEO Arnav says “one of the key features is how you can set priorities on the app on how you get data from the sources. “You can set the activities to come from Apple Watch and something else from the Fitbit,” he adds. And it is not all artificial intelligence, Boltt plans to draw on the knowledge of its “global board of influencers and advisers” ranging from marathoners, triathletes, data scientists and biokineticists, nutritionists and sleep experts”

Is Boltt Beat the right choice for you?

It is also ideal for people

If you are one of those people who have always wanted a coach to assist you and give regular feedback, motivation and data analysis then Boltt Beat is right choice for you.

Even for some people who play sports like football, basketball or any field sports this fitness tracker can be very useful for you.

Having said all this, in our opinion Boltt Beat is ideal for a basic level users who is looking to change his/her daily habits – eating on time, sleeping on time and working out on a regular basis. This tracker will help you to monitor your daily physical activities and get you disciplined. We have rated the Boltt Beat as one of the best budget fitness tracker in India.

Price of Boltt Beat Fitness Tracker

When you look at the price of Boltt Beat it is nowhere near the likes of Fitbit, Garmin, Tomtom and others. If you have a limited budget of less than 5K then Boltt Beat could be your ideal choice.

When you buy the Boltt Beat tracker it automatically comes with their coaching system that we explained earlier in this article. You have a choice to take 3 months, 6 months or 12 months coaching system.

While there is a very slight difference of price between 3 months and 6 months subscription you should ideally aim for 12 month subscription. This will save you the hassle of renewing it at a later stage and consuming your time and efforts.

However if you have some extra cash and want to go for a much higher end fitness band with extra features then you can look at some other high end smartwatches or expensive fitness trackers.

Boltt has been very successful so far in the Indian market. They are also targeting the international wearable market and are shipping their products to all parts of the world.
