A Manchester-based entrepreneur is seeking to revolutionise the world of personal fitness with the first AI-powered smart watch app.
Saeid Jamali, 28, came up with intellithing while at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2017 and has since spent four years developing a product with a seven-strong team.
He’s now in talks with investors about raising £150,000 to go to market, and has already identified future use cases for the technology within healthcare.
The intellithing app, which is compatible with smart watches on both the IoS and Android platforms, uses AI to analyse the way a person’s body functions in real time.
It uses that data to guide the user through their personal fitness journey, coming up with suggestions that align with an individual’s goals and offering guidance on meal planning, fitness routines, sleep patterns and more.
The overall impact is the same as having a personal coach on every step of your fitness journey.
Founder Saeid Jamali said: “intellithing is the result of years of blood, sweat and tears. We want to revolutionise the health and fitness industry and believe that our AI-powered app will do just that.
“By reading and learning about your body and your daily routines, intellithing is able not only to guide you but to predict the future of your fitness, helping to stay on track and aligned with your goals.
“It’s been a long journey personally but we are now convinced that in intellithing, we have a truly ground-breaking product.”
Jamali is hoping to diversify into healthcare, where the AI technology could be used to predict organ failure or heart attacks, for instance.
