Announcing GoLab: The Healbe GoBe Advisor Program

Healbe™ is teaming up with a hand-selected group of nutritionists, dieticians, and other health and fitness professionals to put GoBe to work in the real world. Together, we’re exploring the many ways GoBe can help real people live healthier, happier lives.

What is the GoLab GoBe Advisor Program?
GoLab is a program that invites selected health and fitness professionals to wear GoBe around the clock in their everyday lives. Our GoLab advisors give us valuable feedback on how GoBe helps them manage all the parameters of whole-body health, including automatic calorie intake measurement.

We work closely with the GoLab Advisors and use their input to help make the GoBe experience more informative and intuitive, so people everywhere can live happier, healthier lives.

Meet the GoLab Advisors
Our GoLab Advisors have one thing in common—they’re dedicated to improving whole-body health, both for themselves and others, and passionate about being part of the wearable body manager revolution.

GoLab GoBe Advisor Program FAQ

Q: How were the GoLab Advisors selected?
A: Healbe™ combed the blogosphere looking for people who are passionate about helping people improve their whole-body health. We narrowed the field to a group of 9 certified dieticians, nutrition coaches, and personal trainers who are enthusiastic about the potential of GoBe to change people’s lives—and eager to put it to work in their own lives. Our GoLab Advisors combine solid professional and academic backgrounds with plenty of real-life experience helping people meet their health and fitness goals.

Q: When does the program start?
A: GoLab Advisors will receive their GoBe body managers and begin wearing them shortly.

Q: How long will the program last?
A: Initially, our advisors will wear GoBe 24 hours a day for four weeks. After that, we may choose to keep the GoLab running for even more valuable insights!

Q: How will the GoLab Advisors use GoBe?
A: GoLab advisors will wear the device around the clock and give detailed feedback on how the device helps them manage their whole-body health. GoLab advisors will use independent methods to monitor calorie intake and burn, activity levels, heart rate, blood pressure, stress levels, and sleep, and compare those results to the insights they get from GoBe. They will also provide feedback on ease of use and how well the body manager fits into their daily lives.

Q: What will you do with the insights you get from the GoLab?
A: We will share what we learn from the GoLab on this blog and on our website. We will also use the insights we get from our GoLab advisors to continue to push the boundaries of wearable technology and improve the GoBe experience for everyone.

Keep an eye on this blog for updates and the GoLab program continues.

Real People. Real Results.

GoBe You.
