AIRO—The Breakthrough Health Tracker I Can't Wait to Try

Donna Cleveland

The tech product I'm really excited about right now is AIRO. This health tracker not only detects your activity, stress, and sleep patterns but will measure what you eat by shining LED lights through the wristband to detect metabolites in the bloodstream to assess the quantity and quality of your meal. With fitness bands from Fitbit, Jawbone, and Nike, you have to manually enter your meals, which takes a lot of work. AIRO is still in development, so we probably won't see it until next year.

Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    Very interesting. I'd be curious to find out people's reactions to this device as an internal implant.

    Personally, while I find data metrics and analytical tools regarding my health and fitness to be interesting, from an aesthetic/practical I wouldn't wear a tracking device like this unless it could be implanted/removed as an outpatient procedure.

    I think I'm probably in the minority on that but I'd love to find out where others stand.

      Interesting point. I personally wouldn't be up for implanting such a device, but I do agree that wearing a wristband at all times might not be comfortable for everyone. I'd try it though!
