Kito Health Tracker Review
FITNESS TRACKER OR HEALTH TRACKER: WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?
With the popularity of fitness trackers on the rise, it’s no wonder people are becoming more concerned with whats going on the inside of their body. Personally, I had never understood or felt the need to know things like my heart rate and respiration levels but apparently it is quite a handy thing to keep track of.
There is a wealth of smart technology devices on the market now that claim to keep track of your calories burned, steps, distance etc, but one product which I have tried more recently has been focused on a number of different aspects. The Kito phone case by Azoi tracks your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, respiration rate, skin temperature and ECG. The important thing to remember is, Kito is not a fitness tracker, it is a health tracker,
The health vitals Kito tracks span a wider spectrum than what standard fitness trackers provide
BENEFITS OF KITO
Tracking your heart rate with the Kito phone case can help you analyse how healthy you currently are, based on your BPM. The average adult heart rate should be around 60-100 BPM. When I used the Kito I used it a couple of times and 1 time I got 73 and another around 78. Kito+ is a bit different than your usual fitness trackers. It is more of a health tracker. The health vitals it keeps track of cover an extended variety of health aspects than fitness trackers do. It’s not just about the users heart rate and respiration rate, it also tracks other important health vitals namely, skin temperature, blood oxygen level, and your ECG.
Being able to keep track of your ECG (electrocardiogram) is useful for many people, particularly people with high blood pressure and a history of heart attacks. Usually a person would have to physically be in a doctor’s surgery or hospital to have an ECG administered but Kito allows patients to measure it from the comfort of their own home, or anywhere in fact, and all they need is their smartphone. They can then have this vital information ready to send to their doctor which is much more convenient for both patient and doctor. It is particularly useful for people who care for elderly relatives.
When I used the Kito health tracker, I found that my blood oxygen level was 98%. After further research, I found this is a normal rate. If it is any lower than this, you could be suffering from hypoxemia which means your blood is not supplying the body with enough oxygen.
WHO IS KITO FOR?
Kito is aimed at people with all different needs and from various backgrounds. For example, a health fanatic who wants to gain a better understanding of what’s going on inside rather than just their physique. As previously mentioned, this device would be really useful for someone caring for an elderly relative. It allows you to monitor crucial health benefits that could be detrimental to a person’s health who suffers from high blood pressure or has a history of heart problems. With the Kito you are able to test these vitals from anywhere so you’ll always have the most up to date info about your loved ones health.
It is useful for people like me, who aren’t exactly health and fitness fanatics but do like to keep track of health levels. I do regular exercise and eat quite healthily so it was interesting to find out my heart rate before and after workouts. It was useful as I was able to see for myself what the numbers actually were. I had only ever had these type of things measured in a doctor’s surgery where they don’t really tell you what the numbers are they just say if its good or bad.
THE PHYSICAL DESIGN
In regards to the Kito’s physical appeal, it is of good and sturdy quality. The case fits iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6/6s Plus perfectly. It comes in three main parts – phone case, charger and the health tracker pad.
The only negative thing I noticed was that the square charger slips out easily, literally by a tiny bump to it. Other than that, there is nothing wrong with the design itself as far as I can see. Although it is a phone case, you probably wouldn’t walk about with it attached to your phone all day. You would only have it attached when using the tracker.
WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO OWN A KITO HEALTH TRACKER?
Devices like the Kito, are helping to drive the health technology market forward by allowing patients to keep track of their health vitals which they can pass onto their doctor at a later date. This adds value to both patient and doctor’s lives, something that the health IT industry is moving towards.
