boAt and KaHa partner for smartwatches that help monitor and diagnose patients

India’s top wearables brand, boAt, has partnered with Singapore-based KaHa Technologies to create state-of-the-art smartwatches that offer primary, preventive, and customized healthcare data.

These wearables use an AI-based algorithm to track critical health data and provide insights into one’s health, using unconventional data that is not typically collected in a hospital setting.

boAt, in partnership with KaHa Technologies, has developed smartwatches to help monitor and diagnose patients, offering primary, preventive, and customized healthcare data.

Recently, the companies partnered with Jalan Kayu Community Health Club (JKCHC) in Singapore, providing newly developed smartwatches to club members for regular vitals monitoring.

Health partners such as Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) and Pinnacle Family Clinics supported this project, which will soon extend to General Practitioner Clinics. The Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong, hosted a formal ceremony to mark the occasion.

boAt acquired KaHa Pte Ltd, a Singapore-based smart IoT product development company, in 2022 to create IoT-Enabled Wearables. With expertise in building IoT devices and a technology-focused platform for wearables, KaHa offers proprietary AI and machine learning capabilities, as well as end-to-end smart wearable solutions. They’ve received the prestigious Clarivate award for Innovation for two consecutive years, 2020 and 2021.
