boAt has developed next-generation smartwatches with Singapore-based KaHa Technologies to offer primary, preventive, and customized healthcare data. These wearables can consistently track critical health data which will provide insights into one’s health, through AI based algorithm using data that is vastly different from conventional data that are all collected in the hospital.
Recently in Singapore KaHa partnered with Jalan Kayu Community Health Club (JKCHC) – a one-stop platform where senior citizens can have greater access to health talks, health coaching sessions, health screenings, fitness, and wellness programs in their neighbourhood. The newly developed smartwatches were provided to the club members for them to monitor their vitals regularly. This project was implemented with the support of health partners such as Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) and extend soon to General Practitioner Clinics starting with Pinnacle Family Clinics. A formal ceremony was also hosted in the august presence of Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong.
