Your customers count on the accuracy of your wearable devices to improve their health and fitness. Recent media articles have exposed the inaccuracy of several popular wearable sports, health and fitness devices, including some of the leading brands, but there are steps you can take to ensure your products deliver what they promise. Welltec can perform product testing, algorithm verification or validation and even compare your product claims against other devices on the market. Once we’ve completed our analysis, we’ll provide you with an evidence-based white paper you can use to support your marketing claims, promote existing and next-generation products, or even refute negative publicity. If your product does not perform to your requirements, Welltec can create a new algorithm or license an existing algorithm for your specific device.
As a credible, neutral third party, Welltec is ready to help you take the lead when it comes to validating the accuracy of your wearable health and fitness trackers.
By introducing sensors to the gloves and shorts, along with algorithms and custom hardware, New Mexico-based Welltec is able to measure fighters' performance as well as the details of their punches—including angle, velocity, and impact—in mere milliseconds. The data supplied by the chips is available instantly, and can be used to inform broadcasters and design graphic overlays in near real time, or to help coaches refine their training."

Welltec's favorite show of the year!
Some innovative products. Some not so much, but a great show again nonetheless.
Welltec practices what it preaches by supporting the lunchtime Welltec "Rattlesnake" ride and exercise classes at our Exercise Lab. This is a typical Tuesday lunch ride in sunny Albuquerque. If your thing is cycling, bring your bike on your next visit or we will arrange a loaner for the Tuesday, Thursday 1.5 hour ride or workout clothes for the M/W/F functional strength classes. Daily exercise is a corporate value and lunchtime exercise takes priority, so pick your activity! We think cycling is the new golf, so lets meet on the road!
