Stealthy smart jewelry is coming to take care of your Vitamin D levels #WearableWednesday

30104 95c78a8e10777af73b8559d463116c4b

With the tag line “Stay Stylish, Stay Healthy” Stealthy hopes to create fashionable wearables that monitor health. Via Wearable.com:

So what does Stealthy do? The collection includes a necklace, bracelet and a hijab pin. The final devices will have sensors which monitor levels of Vitamin D by calculating how much time is spent outdoors in adequate vitamin D level sunlight during optimal hours. The wearable is paired with a companion lifestyle app which makes activity suggestions and encourages users to share the data with their doctor.

Siddique has working prototypes for the bracelet (pictured with the founder) and says she is working on a new design with a smaller module plus bangle form factor (pictured in the CAD mock up images below).

One potential customer is women pre and post pregnancy but the team isn’t narrowing itself when so many people could benefit from being more in tune with Vitamin D levels.

“We believe wearables are the future and will fast become integral to the future of personalised medicine,” says Siddique.
