Healbe GoBe Update, Firmware Improvements—and a Chance to Win FREE GoBe Body Managers!
What a wild ride! Taking Healbe GoBe™ from a few working prototypes to thousands of factory-manufactured body managers that make it possible for people everywhere to automatically track their calorie intake and other key body parameters has been challenging, educational, and inspiring—to say the least. We couldn’t have done any of it without the support of our IndieGoGo contributors, and we are thrilled to share what the next several months hold.
Eagerly awaiting your GoBe? Here’s the scoop.
As of today, 58% of our IndieGoGo perks have been shipped. If you haven’t received your body manager yet, you don’t have long to wait. We are currently manufacturing 800-1000 new devices per week, and each new batch gets shipped out as soon as they’re ready. We expect all our IndieGoGo supporters & all who pre-ordered via site to have their GoBe body managers within several weeks.

You helped make automatic calorie intake measurement a reality—now you can get in on the next phase of development!
The revolutionary Healbe FLOW™ algorithms that allow GoBe to automatically measure calorie intake and other health parameters were developed over the course of many years, by a dedicated team of researchers and developers. Now that thousands of people are using GoBe in their daily lives, our team is able to constantly refine the algorithms and improve the device’s accuracy in a wide variety of real-world conditions.
Thanks to the many supporters who have actively participated in developing the revolutionary technology inside GoBe, we have already made tremendous strides, including:
- Significant improvements to the algorithms to measure calorie intake for smaller meals. GoBe was initially developed in a laboratory setting using “average-size” meals of around 400-800 calories. Ongoing feedback from our supporters has allowed us to optimize the device’s calorie intake measurement for how people really eat! Thanks to this feedback, the Healbe FLOW™ algorithms are now able to measure snacks and small meals under 400 calories with about a 13% margin of error, comparing very favorably to manually logging calories—with none of the hassles. We are extremely excited about this progress, and you’ll be able to help us test the new algorithms starting in August.
- Fixed mealtime confirmation loop. A few users reported that they were being asked to confirm the same mealtimes multiple times. We found the bug, and the fix will be available in the next firmware update in early July.
- Fixed Android App bugs. We found and fixed a bug that was crashing the water balance function in the Android App, plus a bug that cleared some data from the nutrients burned summary, and another that compromised the sleep graph functionality. All three fixes will be included in the next Android App update, available in Google Play this week.
