Previous CES Innovation Award Honoree (2017) HiMirror are expanding their range of smart well-being products with two new devices announced at this year’s CES. The handheld HiSkin rapidly analyses skin condition and the Smart Body Scale measures a range of body metrics from weight (mass) and BMI, through water level and muscle-to-fat ratios.
The HiSkin is a pocket size hand-held device which connects to the HiMirror (and smartphone) to provide rapid analysis of skin’s condition. By simply holding the HiSkin on the face, the unit analyses conditions that can’t be seen with the naked eye, such as hydration and melanin. For melanin, HiSkin allows for continuous daily measurements to help observe changes in skin colour and evaluate increases in hyperpigmentation. Meanwhile, for hydration, it monitors changes in the skins moisture and evaluates the effectiveness of skincare habit, i.e. is the moisturiser any good?
Through HiSkin’s analysis, users can understand how seemingly small changes in their diet and lifestyle impact their skin, helping them better protect and maintain good complexion. The device achieves this by combining electronic and bio-medical engineering to non-invasively analyse the facial skin’s condition in five parts: forehead, eyes, upper cheek, lower cheek and chin. The HiSkin also detects and analyses dark circles and acne scars.
Interestingly, it’s suggested that HiSkin can also be used while shopping. Users can try desired skincare products before they buy them by using HiSkin to help them know which products or foundation will work best for their skin.
The HiSkin communicates via Bluetooth and works with HiMirror and the user’s smartphone via the HiSkin app, which is available for both Android and iOS. HiSkin is available online from HiMirror for £49.
The Smart Body Scale helps users stay in shape by measuring weight, body mass index, basal metabolic rate, total body water, skeletal muscle and bone mass, as well as muscle to fat ratios. If available, all the data is uploaded to user’s HiMirror in real-time via Bluetooth, or else the data is sent to the HiFit app on the user’s smartphone (available for both Android and iOS shortly).
Using the data gathered, the Smart Body Scale can propose a variety of body improvement strategies and fitness videos on the HiMirror for attaining a healthier, more-toned body, all within the comfort of your own home. For use outside of the bathroom, the HiMirror Scale has a neutral coloured plush cover which lets it blends into any decor.
The Scale is a certified IEC standard medical device and is available online from HiMirror for £111.
Simon Shen, CEO of Taipei-based New Kinpo Group, which owns HiMirror, said: “We are elated to be exhibiting again at CES 2019, showcasing our brand innovations to some of the most influential and substantial names in the business. Our latest launches are elevating our product portfolio exponentially and filling voids in the marketplace. We strive to evolve with the ever-changing beauty/skincare industry and know these tools will enhance both the consumer and business experience.”
