How Does Healbe GoBe Automatically Track Calorie Intake?
Until now, keeping track of how many calories you eat has been a tedious, error-prone process. You log meals, weigh portions, scan bar codes, or just guess—and at the end of the day, you’re left with an inaccurate estimation that doesn’t truly help you find balance in what you eat.
Healbe GoBe™ is different. This wearable body manager is the first way to automatically track calorie intake—and it does it through your skin, with no logging or guesswork. Only GoBe uses your body’s own information to tell you how many calories you’re actually consuming—so you can simply wear it and go be you!
How automatic calorie tracking work?
To understand how GoBe automatically tracks calorie intake, take a look at this infographic.

- When you eat, food travels to your stomach to be broken down and digested.
- 10-15 minutes after you eat, your body starts converting the carbohydrates in your food into glucose. This process continues for up to 4-6 hours, depending on what you eat and your body’s unique physiology.
- As glucose concentrations rise, your cells absorb glucose and release water. Fat and protein in your food influences the rate of glucose absorption—leading to different shapes and durations of the “glucose curve,” which GoBe measures.
- GoBe uses an impedance sensor to measure the fluid moving in and out of your cells—continuously, around the clock.
- Healbe FLOW™ Technology uses an advanced algorithm to analyze impedance readings and calculate calorie intake based on your glucose curves, giving you a complete picture of your calorie and nutritional intake over time.
