Maharashtra Police became the first batch of frontline warriors in the world to use remote tracking technology to track COVID-19 cases as well as manage their own health. Akshay Kumar donated around 1000 GOQii smartwatches to Mumbai Police and 500 to Nashik Police.
Now, a virtual event titled Nashik City Police Online System to Monitor Health of its Personnel will be held on June 11 at 3 pm to 3:30 pm that will be addressed by Akshay, Nashik City Police Commissioner Vishwas Nangare Patil and Vishal Gondal, Founder and CEO, GOQii.
Vishwas Nangre Patil, Nashik police commissioner had previously said, “We are grateful to Mr Akshay Kumar for donating 500 smartwatches, which will be utilised by our frontline workers who are above 45 years of age.” The Commissioner had also explained how these smartwatches work. He revealed that the watch collects the data of body temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure on its COVID dashboard and this data is centrally monitored by the police. There are two more dashboards on the watch – health and wellness that also track Body Mass Index and the footsteps.
This is the first lot of the bands that are being manufactured by the German health tech startup. The devices will be available in India in phases. However, before the general public can avail these, these bands will be provided to the frontline workers first.
