Newly launched Shapewatch offers 3D body visualization for powerful user motivation and transformation

Fitness industry's first augmented reality experience focused on changing body shape

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Newly launched Shapewatch, an innovative 3D body visualization tool, enables users to scan their bodies, monitor key biometrics and see their body shapes in 3D – making progress tracking toward fitness goals via the Shapewatch app more real, motivational and empowering.

The new Shapewatch 3D body visualization tool – which works through  a kiosk and app – enables users to scan their bodies, monitor key biometrics and see their body shapes in 3D so they can visually track their progress over time, empowering them to work toward their fitness goals in a more motivational way.

Backed by international market leader Global Scanning, with over 30 years of scanning technology experience, and private equity firm Procuritas, Shapewatch digitally delivers a relevant data rich experience to continuously motivate members throughout their fitness journeys.

Shapewatch includes a kiosk and app. The Shapewatch kiosk is an automated self-serve unit delivering scanning results in 60 seconds. The Shapewatch app – on the user's smart device – enables clubs to offer members detailed, accurate and visual accounts of key biometrics –body fat percentage, lean body mass, waist-hip ratio and more so they can track body changes as their workouts progress.

Shapewatch also motivates transformation through social sharing. With the app, users post progress to their social networks using the fitness industry's first augmented reality experience focused on changing body shape.

Flexible design architecture enables clubs to easily integrate Shapewatch's functionality into their own apps, ensuring a seamless member experience inside and outside the club, and provide inspirational content on the user's smart device. 

Unlike the existing solutions, Shapewatch is more efficient and effective – an evolution from the inaccurate, inconsistent, invasive measurements common to many health, fitness and wellness practices today. Advantages include:

  • Scanning results obtained in 60 seconds
  • Augmented reality avatars – the industry's first
  • User data access via Shapewatch app
  • Easy-to-interpret, recognizable measurements/biometrics
  • Motivational community building among users

Further, intelligent software predicts future changes users could experience, enhancing the motivational benefits of Shapewatch to a greater degree. This, along with body measurements and health data via avatar representations, makes Shapewatch the ultimate animated 3D selfie.

Launched for the fitness and wellness industries, Shapewatch increases member engagement by making users accountable for their goals through body composition tracking showing health data results over time. For the wellness industry, Shapewatch provides a discreet, non-invasive consultation with consistent, accurate results viscerally connecting body composition to overall health effect.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
