With Lumen, one breath is all that’s required for you to discover how your body burns fat and carbs. Also, exactly what you need to do to lose weight.
Lumen is an interesting little gadget that measures your metabolism through breath. Each metabolism is unique and changes every day based on food consumption, fitness and sleep. Lumen analyses your breath on a daily basis, then connects to the accompanying app via Bluetooth, making meal plans and fitness recommendations to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Lumen takes the guesswork out of nutrition and helps answer those tricky questions you have about your metabolism.
The concept of measuring metabolism through breath isn’t new, but it traditionally required around 60-minutes of tests and a team of doctors or dietitians to measure the results. The science is known as RQ (respiratory quotient) and refers to the ratio of carbon dioxide (CO2) to Oxygen (O2) consumed. It’s a process commonly used to help world-class athletes reach peak levels of fitness. After 3 years of study and clinical trials, Lumen’s patent-pending technology is capable of reducing the time of measuring to a single breath.
Breathe into Lumen before a workout to see if you have enough energy or if you need to fuel up first. And afterwards, know the impact it’s had on your body. Get expert feedback and understand what you’re doing right and what needs to be changed for you to reach your goals.
Lumen is made from a combination of plastic and stainless steel and comes with a travel case and charging dock. The Lumen app includes its own sleep, activity and nutrition tracking and is also compatible with Google Fit and Apple Health. The rechargeable lithium battery lasts up to 2 weeks between charges.
The team behind Lumen have taken their nifty little gadget to the crowdfunding website Indigogo where it’s been an enormous success, so far raising over 671k or 1342% of the funding goal. Over 300 users around the globe received beta versions of Lumen, and during the first 30 days, each lost an average 3kg of weight.
