Health and physical performance depend on our ability to maintain proper hydration. Knowing exactly how well hydrated you are at any given time, however, remains an elusive goal. B60 – Nobo’s first product – ls the first wearable device that assesses the full spectrum of hydration status in real-time. By monitoring for both dehydration and over-hydration, B60 provides insights into health, cognitive ability and physical performance that have never been available before.
it’s more than drinking a glass of water
Ensure teams perform at their peak...
Trainers responsible for the performance of their athletes understand that maintaining proper hydration is a critical proactive step. Athletes, however, often don’t pay sufficient attention to this simple nutritional factor, putting themselves at risk and jeopardizing their team’s success. Nobo helps determine if athletes are prepared to practice and compete at their best, no matter what environment they’re participating in.
...while keeping them safe
Dehydration among athletes can lead to elevated body temperature, increased heart rate and substantial risk of heat-related illness, while severe over-hydration can also lead to life-threatening complications. Nobo’s B60 can quickly assess the hydration of an entire team of athletes, allowing trainers to intervene before significant health problems occur.
Fluid balance affects outcomes
Research and anecdotal evidence indicate that optimizing the care of neonatal, surgical, septic, oncologic and many other patients often depends on maintaining precise fluid balance end points. Unfortunately clinicians don’t currently have accurate and reliable fluid status indicators to help guide their patients’ therapies. Nobo is developing a quantitative, non-invasive, continuous and direct fluid balance monitor intended to help those clinicians care for the most fragile of patients.
Keeping workers safe
Maintaining the health and safety of workers in any harsh environment is critical to all employers. Whether those workers are on the battlefield, fighting fires or building the country’s infrastructure, the safety of women and men performing arduous tasks is paramount. Continuous hydration monitoring can help ensure optimum health, decision making ability and productivity.
Make your training count
You train hard and pay close attention to your nutrition. And while you know that staying properly hydrated is a key to making that hard work pay off, how can you be sure that you’re hydrating correctly for your body and activity level? Nobo’s B60 continuously measures and monitors your hydration to help you understand if you’re on track towards the safe and successful competition you envision.

[B60] monitors a user’s hydration levels in real-time, and tells them if they are dehydrated, overhydrated or are at their optimal hydration level…
Current hydration assessment methods are invasive: it requires blood tests, urine samples, or measuring body weight changes. What’s more, existing equipment does not have scientific evidence suggesting that they work accurately. In this environment, the B60 offers a convenient alternative for measuring hydration.
…the idea is for the device to have a simple display that tells the user if he or she is over- or under-hydrated.
Knowledge of adequate hydration can be very useful, especially when combined with other data
L’avenir? B60 de Nobo – un capteur four connaitre son niveau d’hydratation.
(The future? B60 from Nobo – A sensor to know hydration levels)
For everyone from elite athletes to consumers to critical care patients, Nobo is introducing B60, its non-invasive hydration & fluid balance monitoring wearable…
Fluid management is not only about detecting dehydration, but is an infinitely more nuanced problem of maintaining the proper fluid balance in the face of physical exertion, trauma and disease…
While Nobo will preliminarily be focusing on athletes, they see a broader application for the device. For instance, it can help doctors monitor hydration in critical care patients and help those working in fields that require physical activity (say, firefighters) stay on top of their health.
The B60 monitor is geared more toward athletes to give them live updates about whether they’re de-hydrated, or over hydrated.
