GOQii, a fitness wearable by an Indian start-up has been around for some time with its offering of a virtual personal trainer to help you achieve your fitness goals. The company recently announced the GOQii 2, which comes with few additional services and a new band.
Along with its primary offering of a fitness coach, the upgraded GOQii 2 comes with health care facilities that include doctor consultation, diagnostic services, HRA (health risk assessment) and a health locker to store medical records. Users can consult a qualified physician for general medical and lifestyle related issues through an app-based service over chat and voice call. The app also allows you to book an appointment for diagnostic services, if required. Once the diagnosis has been done the reports will get stored in a health locker, which can be accessed by the user, fitness coach, and doctor. The doctor and your personal coach would work together to help you achieve your fitness goals by giving health and lifestyle based advice. One more interesting feature is the addition of NFC support for payments.
There aren’t many changes to the hardware design of the fitness tracker. It comes with the similar rubber strap and a removable OLED display. Only this time the band is slightly sleeker and comes only in black. GOQii has added an integrated USB charger, a convenient feature as one need not have to carry a separate charger. The new upgraded battery is said to last for 14 days.
The GOQii 2 is slightly cheaper when compared to the previous version. You pay for the services and the band comes free. The subscription cost starts from Rs 1,999 for 3 months, Rs 2,999 for 6 months and Rs 999 for 12 months.
