We have recently seen a number of health trackers, such as a device that doubles as jewelry and an in-ear tracker that can measure eating speed. However, most do not provide a way for users to keep track of calories consumed as well as expended. A new calorie counting app aims to provide a complete health and wellness tracking service by determining the nutritional value of every meal you eat, using a photo. To use the Foodvisor app, users first take a photo of their meal using their smartphone. The apps’ food-recognition software will identify the food and produce a serving size recommendation and a detailed nutritional analysis, within seconds. Users can also scan barcodes of products, or manually input nutrition information, to create a customized food-diary that will help keep them on track with nutritional goals.
