Healbe GoBe™ Raises Over $1 Million on Indiegogo

The Original 100% Automatic Body Manager Joins the Ranks of the Top Crowdfunded Projects

SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Healbe Corporation announced today that its Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign raised $1,084,944 in support of GoBe – the first and only wearable body manager that automatically measures calorie intake.

The 42-day campaign – which began on March 5 – was a huge success, raising over ten times Healbe's original goal of $100,000. It made GoBe one of the top 10 most funded projects in Indiegogo history.

GoBe received enthusiastic support from 4,474 contributors on Indiegogo, as well as over 11,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter.

"We would like to thank everyone who contributed to GoBe on Indiegogo," said Artem Shipitsyn, CEO of Healbe. "The response confirms our belief that people are looking for easier ways to manage their health and weight. We are proud to be part of a revolution in wearable technology that will empower people to go be at their best, with less effort."

As the Original 100% Automatic Body Manager, GoBe goes beyond the capabilities of ordinary fitness trackers. GoBe uses Healbe FLOW™ Technology, the patented innovation that combines information from three sensors with an advanced algorithm to calculate calorie intake through your skin. It automatically measures calories consumed and burned during any activity, along with hydration, sleep and stress—with no logging. The body manager also provides continuous heart rate monitoring, and accurately tracks calorie burn during any activity, making it the first wearable device to automatically deliver a comprehensive range of practical insights to help people live happier, healthier lives. GoBe connects to an iOS and Android smartphone app via Bluetooth to give users easy access to information from their bodies.

Prior to the start of the Indiegogo campaign, Healbe™ developed a functional prototype and smartphone app. The GoBe Original 100% Automatic Body Manager has undergone extensive internal testing to determine its accuracy, and third party testing will begin in May 2014. All funds raised through Indiegogo will go towards manufacturing the body manager and finalizing the app. The first GoBe devices are expected to ship to contributors as soon as June 2014.

In May 2014, Healbe™ will be holding an exclusive media event in New York City to give the press the opportunity to speak to its developers and experience GoBe: the Original 100% Automatic Body Manager.

"Our Indiegogo campaign showed us just how much support there is behind our innovation. Now, we are excited to meet with the media and show them what GoBe is capable of," Shipitsyn said.

More details about the media event will be released when available.
