ObeEnd is the world’s first smart wristband that utilizes targeted neuromodulation and closed-loop feedback technology to help manage weight.

The step counting, heart rate monitoring, and fitness tracking functions are all blended in the main unit of the device. ObeEnd is made of hypoallergenic medical grade silicone, and offers IP65 water resistance.
The HD touchscreen and user-friendly interface offer users a straightforward way to operate the device and to monitor their exercise progression. The mobile application offers additional long-term data tracking, and helps provide feedback for its users through a closed-loop system; by monitoring exercise routines and physical activities, personalized exercise goals can be generated. ObeEnd is the first wearable device to combine the therapeutic aspects of neuromodulation with fitness tracking utilities.
