Samsung's wellness belt - WELT, that can tell you when to stop eating
This year Samsung has really outdone itself with a smart belt that analyzes things like waistlines, eating habits and physical movement. The so-called WELT - which stands for 'wellness belt' - is described by the company as a "smart wearable health belt."
At the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung unveiled a new "smart belt" called WELT, short for "wellness belt." WELT monitors your eating habits and can help you lose weight.
It looks like a normal belt, but it's loaded with sensors and pairs up with your phone so it can tell you things like how long you've been sitting down, or how many steps you've taken that day.
In addition, the belt also pairs up with an app which receives a constant stream of data about you. The app analyzes this data so it can tell you things about yourself, like whether you've overeaten, or your waistline size.
The WELT was made by Samsung's Creative Lab, which is more of an experimental department within Samsung. The WELT is a prototype as of now, though it looks like a fully functional (and even stylish) normal belt.
The WELT is still in development, a Samsung rep at CES told us, and is not currently available for retail.
The Verge got a video of Samsung's WELT, which you can watch below:
