The Apple Watch is considered the most in-demand wearable with a stunning 1.25 million preorders on the first release date alone and claims an exceptional design and revolutionary technology. Kudolife’s adoption of the Apple Watch SDK will allow it to expand its service offering to the millions of users waiting for their watch.

“Our proprietary diet and fitness app Kudolife has reached all-new levels in mobile and web user experience with the Apple device,” says Co-founder and CEO Zeeshan Hayat. “Kudolife’s visually striking, remarkably intuitive, and astonishingly accurate Apple Watch update will make achieving a healthy lifestyle easier and more convenient than ever before.” Kudolife’s refresh allows users to view their calories in, calories out, and see nutritional suggestions in real time on the wearable interface. Further updates include iPhone and timepiece notifications like push reminders, encouragements, progress summaries, and an enriched redesign that will help motivate users to make healthy choices.

Crowdfunding campaign Launched for Worlds First Anti-Loss Smart Watch


Shenzhen, China (PRWEB) May 06, 2015

Chinese technology company, Elink-IOT, has launched a campaign on the crowd funding site Kickstarter to raise AUD$ 150,000 to finalize development of Watcher, the world’s first anti-loss smart watch.

Watcher is a smart watch designed to help the owner keep track of important items by vibrating to inform the wearer when the item is out of range.

Using a special patented technology, Watcher vibrates to inform the wearer and sends alerts on its E-paper display, and also features a fitness tracker and thermometer. The device carries an accessory that can be attached to a wide range of items including keys, wallet, camera, luggage, or a pet.

Watcher will vibrate to remind you to take care of your belongings, once the accessory moves beyond the range of 10 meters.

Watcher can work with up to 5 connected accessories simultaneously, and, when connected to an iPhone or Android smartphone by Bluetooth, the GPS location will also be recorded by the Watcher app.

The accessory is equipped with a rechargeable Lithium battery, which when fully charged can work for up to two weeks.

“Wouldn’t it be great to never lose your keys, bag, phone or anything ever again? This innovative device is useful in many situations, even helping to keep track of your children in a large crowd and avoid the stress of frantic searching. With Watcher, you will be able to neutralize the panic with the press of a button to lead you directly to them, saving valuable time and unnecessary stress,” the company spokesperson said.

After two years of research and development, the prototyping and FCC/CE certification phases have already been completed. The company is now ready to introduce the Watcher to the global market, and will use the funds raised to begin mass production and marketing in Aug. 2015.

Weekend Warriors: Watch Your Back


West Orange, NJ (PRWEB) March 25, 2015

Spring’s imminent arrival – despite frigid temperatures over much of the United States – undoubtedly has many “weekend warriors” itching to return to outdoor exercise and activities. But weekend warriors – who take part in strenuous bursts of activity only on weekends or certain times of the year – need to be especially cautious of how an abrupt return to vigorous movement can injure their spine, according to Pain Management Specialist Brian Bannister, MD, with Atlantic Spine Center.

Despite minimal activity during the week, weekend warriors often plunge into recreational sports at week’s end, sometimes with perilous results. A 2014 study in the Canadian Journal of Surgery (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4035407/) found that significantly more weekend warriors sustained injuries than everyday athletes during mishaps while hiking or rock-climbing (15.4% of accidents), skateboarding or rollerblading (12.3%), hockey/ice skating (10.3%) and water-related (7.7%) activities. About 35% of the 351 patients analyzed in the research sustained a spinal injury, and more than 8% required spinal surgery.

“Overall, a weekend warrior’s commitment to demanding exercise is a good thing, health-wise,” says Dr. Bannister. “But it can also place their backs, in particular, at risk since their bodies are no longer as flexible or quick to recover as when they were younger.”

Common spine injuries for weekend warriors

What types of back injuries are prevalent among weekend warriors? Depending on how they get hurt, these injuries can run the gamut from mild to severe, Dr. Bannister says, including:


Muscle strain or sprain: This type of soft tissue damage – whether to muscles, tendons or ligaments – often occurs in the lower spine, known as the lumbar region. Muscle spasms may accompany pain and can be severe, but most strains and sprains just need time and rest to heal.
Disc herniation: Athletes engaging in activities requiring a lot of spine flexing and rotating – such as weight lifting, collision sports and bowling – have a higher chance of disc herniation, in which the soft center of a vertebral disc pushes through the disc’s outer shell. Pain can be intense and the condition may require surgery.
Spondylolistheses: When one bone in the back slides forward over the bone beneath it, that’s called spondylolistheses. Some sports, such as weight lifting and gymnastics, confer a higher risk of this problem by causing stress fractures in vertebrae. Pain relievers, physical therapy or surgery may be used to treat spondylolistheses.
Minor or major fracture: Major spinal fractures are uncommon except in high-speed collision sports such as skiing or motocross and typically require surgery. But small fractures, which can happen during a variety of activities, are usually managed with “conservative” measures such as rest, physical therapy and pain medication.

Tips for back injury prevention

What’s the best way for weekend warriors to prevent back injuries? “That’s easy,” Dr. Bannister says. “Stop exercising only on the weekend! Moderate-to-vigorous physical exercise should be something we take part in at least several times per week, spread throughout the week.”

But for those committed to their weekend warrior ways, Dr. Bannister offers these tips to help prevent spine injury:

Start slowly: Stretch and walk for 7 to 10 minutes to allow muscles and joints to warm up. Hold each stretch for at least 30 seconds, and be sure to stretch the opposing muscle group on the other side of your body.
Ramp up gradually: Increase the time or intensity of workouts, but not both at the same time.
Mix it up: Try cross-training, which involves participating in more than one type of sport or activity. Research suggests this approach results in fewer injuries than doing only one specific activity.
Listen to your body: If you feel pain or soreness, stop what you’re doing and take a rest. If the discomfort doesn’t gradually improve – or gets worse – see your doctor.
Remember the right gear: Depending on the sport, you may need a helmet, wrist pads or knee pads. Well-fitting athletic shoes that provide sufficient shock absorption are a must.

“Here’s what I propose to weekend warriors: Make physical activity an every-other-day habit instead,” says Dr. Bannister. “Not only will short workouts during the week help you enjoy your weekend workouts even more, but your back will thank you.”

Smart Watch / Wearables Gesture Control Patent Available from ICAP Patent Brokerage


New York, NY (PRWEB) March 12, 2015

ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale a means of activating audio time reporting through gesture control, available from Enbiomedic. This patent is offered as part of the Internet of Things IP Auction, with a bidding deadline of April 23rd, 2015.

“This is an important patent for companies involved in fitness wearables, smart watches, sport watches, electronic wristwatches, and app/software providers,” says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics & Benefits

The portfolio discloses a way for a wristwatch to use an accelerometer to detect the orientation and/or movement of a user’s wrist and subsequently activate audio time reporting, without requiring the user to find and push a small button. For example, a talking wristwatch can use this method to automatically report the time whenever a user moves or orients his or her wrist to a natural position for listening. A position such as that in close proximity to the ear can additionally facilitate private listening without disturbing others. Furthermore, the wristwatch can report time using personalized audio time components that the user has previously recorded, so that reporting is in a custom voice or language. In such applications, accelerometer-based control of audio-reporting watches offer significant advantages over conventional means of control including:

1. The available space for time display is getting smaller as wearable devices become smaller. This makes touchless audio time reporting an attractive alternative.

2. An older person may have difficulty seeing a small time display, whereas it would be relatively easier to hear the low-frequency sound of time reporting. Button-free audio time reporting would therefore be more desirable for an increasing number of older people in our aging population.

3. Under poor lighting condition, such as under strong sunlight or when a person wears sunglasses, it can be difficult for people to see a time display or locate a button. Button-free audio time reporting would be convenient in this case.

4. During certain activities including exercise (such as jogging), a person might not be able to place a time display stationary in front of the eyes or to find and push a button for time reporting. Button-free audio time reporting would be convenient in this case.

5. A person often requires using a finger to push a button for displaying or audio reporting of time, which would be inconvenient when the finger is not free, such as when it is holding an object or driving an automobile. Button-free audio time reporting solves this problem elegantly.
