While the Yu Yuphoria was the star of the show at the New Delhi launch event, two other products were launched which offer health tracking at incredibly affordable prices. First we have the YuFit Band that goes head-to-head against Xiaomi’s Mi Band. The YuFit fitness band costs Rs. 999 and offers several advantages over the Mi band. The waterproof YuFit sports an always-on OLED display that shows not just your daily step count but also time, physical exercise records and notifications from your smartphone. You can shift through display messages with the help of a tiny button attached near the display. Like any garden-variety fitness band the YuFit pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth and shows your daily fitness progress on the Healthify Me App that has been released for Android smartphones for the time being. The smartphone app offers diet, weight and exercise and sleep tracking. The Healthify App lets you interact with dieticians and fitness trainers for an as yet unspecified cost. The YuFit band goes on sale on the company’s official website sometime in the month of June and the first 1000 buyers will get a chance to interact with fitness trainers for free up to an unspecified period of time.

Next in line we have the HealthYU. This is a particularly interesting health monitoring gadget as it can monitor major vital signs such as heart rate, ECG, respiration rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, and skin temperature. This one too pairs with your smartphone using Bluetooth and results are displayed on the Healthify App within 30 seconds. As you can see from the image below the user has to place four of his/fingers on various sensors on the HealthYU cassette to measure his/her stats. The HealthYU can be attached to any smartphone’s back with the help of its suction caps. The data taken from HealthYU can be shared with medical professionals for further analysis. We are a bit sceptical about the HealthYU because no one has yet verified the accuracy of the readings of the product. Still the product is a steal considering its Rs. 4999 price tag. This one too will go on sale on the company’s website in the month of June and registrations for the flash sale are now open.
