GOQii has today launched its upgraded smartband in India, which comes with a sleeker design and a bunch of new features. GOQii’s ecosystem too has been enhanced with partnerships with health-related services like Thyrocare, and Max Healthcare among others. The new GOQii band 2.0 is going on sale via the company’s website and select online retailers. GOQii has also slashed its subscriptions rates, which now start from Rs 1,999 for a three month plan. Like always, the band comes free and you just need to pay for the subscription plan upfront. Also Read - This under Rs 5,000 fitness band can measure your blood oxygen level, body temperature

The GOQii band 2.0 boasts a sleeker design, an improved touch OLED display, and an integrated charger that can be connected to any standard USB port to charge the smartband. This is a welcome change as the charger on the first-gen model was always in danger of being misplaced. GOQii also says the battery life too has been improved and on a single charge, the band can last up to 14 days.

One of the highlight features of the new smartband though is support for NFC contactless payments, which has been introduced in collaboration with Axis bank. One can essentially use the GOQii band 2.0 to pay for any purchase at select merchants that have contactless payments. For those worried about privacy, credit or debit card details won’t be stored on GOQii’s app, so there is no danger of it being hacked. The information is only exchanged between the NFC chip on the band and the merchant’s machine. At today’s launch event, GOQii founder and CEO Vishal Gondal also revealed that the company was in talks to expand the NFC functionality by partnering with more banks in the near future.

In addition to launching the second-generation smartband, GOQii has also made major improvements to its ecosystem. The company today announced partnerships with Thyrocare, Max Healthcare, and also introduced new services like GOQii Doctor, GOQii Diagnostics, GOQii Health Locker, and GOQii HRA.

As the name suggests, there is now a qualified physician onboard the GOQii ecosystem. A doctor will be able to consult a user based on their fitness data and suggest changes to lifestyle if need be for free. The GOQii HRA or Health Risk Assessment feature will monitor a user’s fitness data and lifestyle and generate a comprehensive report. Based on the report, a doctor could be assigned to the user. In case a doctor recommends a diagnostic test, a user will now be able to book a lab test from Thyrocare via the app. Alternatively, if the user needs to undergo a more detailed consultation, the app will allow one to book an appointment with any doctor at one of the Max hospitals.

All the user’s fitness data. Prescription history, lab tests and other health records will now be stored at one place called GOQii health locker. These records can then be easily accessed online via the app. All these new features will be immediately available for users of the new GOQii band 2.0. Existing users who have been using the first-generation smartband too will soon get access to the new features and services.

Speaking of subscribers, GOQii today also slashed the prices of its existing plans. Users can now subscribe for three months for Rs 1,999, six months for Rs 2,999 or a year for Rs 3,999. These prices are down from Rs 3,999 for three months plan, Rs 6,999 for six months plan and Rs 11,999 for 12 months plan.

Some of these new features and services are quite impressive, and could go a long way in shaping how we use a fitness band. Besides just tracking one’s activities, GOQii’s ecosystem is giving users access to healthcare services at just a tap of the button. We will try out these new features in detail for our review. Until then stay tuned.
