A Quick Update: New Firmware & The Road Ahead
We hope you’re motivated to make healthy choices and stay fit this summer! The beginning of a new season is the best time to start fresh and on the right foot – GoBe is here to help.
As you know, our team is always working on improvements to GoBe. The firmware update we released today, which is currently available for installation with the help of the Healbe GoBe App, will further advance the way GoBe measures your calorie intake, hydration level, heart rate and calories burned (steps/distance).
What’s New in Versions 1.0: 40605241, 1.1: 41605240
We significantly improved how GoBe measures steps when walking in an office, at home, and on your daily commute. Step up to a better you!
We also fixed some minor bugs affecting:
- Calorie intake measurement.
- Hydration level monitoring.
- Heart rate monitoring.
Now you can rotate your GoBe screen 180° (available for iOS only). Easily turn your wristband’s display for convenient viewing. Open your app settings and adjust the screen depending on how you wear your device.
Summer and beyond
The next steps on our journey to a healthy and balanced life include more exciting news that we can’t wait to share with you. Here’s what you can expect to see:
- An integration with Apple Health for our iOS users
- The official launch of GoBe 1.2 (we’ll announce that date soon)
Thank you for your help and feedback!
The Healbe Team
Here’s an easy, step-by-step guide on how to start the installation updates to your GoBe device:
IMPORTANT: Before updating, please make sure that you have installed the latest version of the Healbe GoBe app!
Also, please keep in mind that installing the update will erase any data your GoBe has collected for the day. We recommend installing first thing in the morning, or right after midnight to avoid data loss.
1. Hold your GoBe close to the device you are pairing it with.
2. Log in to your GoBe app and connect to your device.
3. Place the GoBe sensor unit on its charger (if battery level is lower than 50%).
4. Click the wristband icon on the app’s home screen.
5. Locate the Healbe™ logo.
6. The message “Update Available” will appear.
7. Click “Install.”
Please note that while the Healbe GoBe bracelet is designed to provide you with information about the conditions and trends in the physical state of your body, Healbe GoBe is not meant to be used as a medical device and should not be used to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease; also note that it should not be used as a substitution for expert medical advice. Healbe GoBe measures the basic characteristics of your body using unique technology and algorithms to provide you with accurate data (including consumed and burned calories, step count and distance walked, energy balance, sleep quality, stress level, and heart-rate), but the accuracy of the GoBe's readings depends on the accuracy of the personal data you put in your profile and whether or not you are using the GoBe correctly.
Healbe recommends that you always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health expert with any questions you may have regarding a health condition, diet, or physical fitness program.
