7 Sport and Well-Being Startups That Look Mighty Healthy 

Some of these products wouldn’t have been out of place in our article about wearable tech, but these startups go beyond just the wearable. From helping sports enthusiasts socialise, to keeping your mental well-being in check, to simply saving you time, these startups are making waves (ever so funny when you see the final entry...) in the sports and well-being market.

 

Checkmylevel

Checkmylevel is an assessment device and mobile app, and checks your muscular and peripheral nervous system readiness before you begin training, thus allowing you to get the maximum out of your training sessions while minimizing the risk of injury. Checkmylevel makes its assessments based on your own base level, rather than an average that may not even apply to you, making it an ideal tool for anyone in training. And with it having attracted teams from the likes of the MBA, NHL, and NFL, you’ll be in good company.

Yogaia

Yogaia was our Startup of the Week in April, and it remains a healthy looking startup (too many health puns already?).  Yoga has been a popular method for keeping fit and healthy in mind and body for a long time, but there are plenty of reasons that people might not be able to get to a yoga studio or gym - not enough time, there simply aren’t classes in your area, or maybe you’re not a fan of being around other people. Enter Yogaia. Simply turn on your webcam and join a yoga class from your own home, garden, office, or wherever you feel most comfortable wearing lycra. Convenient and accessible for beginners to the advanced, Yogaia is looking strong, as evidenced by the 3.5M € of funding already brought in.

Ocean Survivor

Not so much sport, but certainly well-being, Ocean Survivor is an Irish startup conceived on the idea that more needed to be done about hypothermia, cold-water shock, and secondary drowning. The idea is to mitigate the effects of hypothermia while promoting comfort and mental well-being in a cold water survival situation. The product, Hydros, is a three-piece personal floatation device that prevents core heat loss while actively transferring heat to the upper chest area. The design for Hydros was shortlisted in the top 20 of the 2014 James Dyson Awards.

Find Some Buddy

Berlin-based startup Find Some Buddy is coming close to launching their sports app, designed to help you find suitable sports partners anywhere and at any time. Whether you are into running, football, basketball, or any number of other sports, you can use the Find Some Buddy app to find others nearby who may already have a game or training session going, or are looking to join one. It’s a good way to meet new people with the same interests as you, while avoiding the lack of motivation that can come from training alone.

Activetainment

Anyone who has been to a gym knows the difficulty of using exercise bikes. It’s not the burning legs and lungs so much as the boredom. You have nothing to distract from those pains and the machine’s timer seems to stop every time you’re not looking at it. Activetainment is addressing this with their first fitness solution, the ebove b/01 bike. This machine is an exercise bike that integrates virtual reality. Why stare at a wall or the terrible music videos on the gym TV when you could be cycling through a forest or up a mountain? The ebove b/01 moves in real time according to the terrain in the immersive 3D environment you’re riding through, giving you a better, more entertaining work out.

Moodmetric

Another Nordic startup, Moodmetric is the mood ring for the 21st century. This one is looking to help improve mental fitness. We all know that our moods can rapidly change throughout the day, and there isn’t always a clear reason for it. Moodmetric is a ring that measures autonomous nervous system signals in an effort to help you understand emotional reactions and, ultimately, improve your everyday life. Data is stored on the ring to be viewed in handy graph form later, while the mobile app gives instant feedback on the wearer’s emotion levels and peaks/troughs throughout the day. By identifying times or situations in which your emotional levels are consistently good or bad, you’ll have a better chance of improving your days to come.

Radinn

Radinn is a startup consisting of extreme sports enthusiasts and founded on the dream of ‘shredding across the water independently from the wind, waves, or boat’. Radinn’s first product is the fancy and very fun looking Wakejet. Part bodyboard, part surfboard and with all the agility and speed of wakeboarding, the Wakejet is self-powered and controlled by a wireless speed controller, meaning the board can be used in any kind of water, regardless of waves and wind. Now we want a few and somewhere warm to use them.
