With innovation like Edgeless display trending in 2017, Jaima International Pvt. Ltd. has just unveiled a new bar phone from OTTO with a few trick up its sleeves. The OTTO Chekr is a device which can measure your glucose level and keep track of your steps.
Specs wise, the OTTO Chekr is your typical bar phone some with decent features. The device has a 2.0-inch curved landscape display. It is powered by a MT6261D chipset. The Chekr has a 1500 mAh battery which will probably give you a couple of days of battery life even under heavy usage. Other than these, the device supports wireless FM Radio and has a dedicated Facebook app for the social media lovers.
But what makes the OTTO Chekr stand out from other devices is its capability to measure blood glucose level. The changing lifestyle of people has resulted in an increase in the number of diabetes patients. And OTTO is playing its part by helping users check their sugar level in an instant through their mobile phone. To implement this technology, OTTO has paired up with Bioland technology to create something that has already been approved by USA’s Food and Drug Association.
When buying the mobile phone, customers get a separate box from Bioland Technology as well. This box, specially customized for OTTO, consists of a lancing device, lancets and a few packets of glucose test strips. Users will have to basically follow three steps in order to check their blood glucose level. I got to test it myself and found it to be relatively easy to use. One test strip can only be used for a single time, however. So, there is a hassle of buying a few packets of the strip every now and then. But Jaima will be soon selling a small customized box consisting of 25 test strips.
To measure the glucose level, users must firstly prick their finger through the lancet, and place blood on the test strip. There is a port on the OTTO Chekr which can house the test strip. Right after placing a touch of blood, the mobile phone measures glucose level after a couple of seconds. This is a fairly straightforward process that doesn’t take a lot of time.
Another major feature of the device is a Pedometer. The device can keep track of the steps taken by the mobile phone’s user. This could come in handy during your morning exercises. Also, it has an inbuilt K-Power sound amplifier for that crispy audio.
According to the officials at Jaima International, the OTTO Chekr is especially for the people aged more than 30 years who are prone to Diabetes.
The OTTO Chekr is exclusively available at Daraz Kaymu right now. It carries a price tag of Rs. 3,496. And being a medical student myself, I am quite amazed by this piece of tech!
