China’s health and wellness market is expected to reach a value of around US$70 billion by 2020 as Chinese customers, especially those in cities, recognize the importance of a healthy lifestyle, according to a report by the Boston Consulting Group. This trend has created enormous opportunities for companies focused on health-related sectors.

Shanghai-based startup ChronoCloud Medtech is a wearable healthcare solutions developer and manufacturer. The company’s first product RyFit is a smart body analyzer that can record and monitor ten major health metrics including weight, body fat, body water, body mass index, basal metabolic rate, muscle mass, and bone mass, amongst others, introduced Guo Hui, co-founder of the company.

The data collected is uploaded to RySmart system, the big data health analytics system authorized by Minnesota University’s Chronobiology Lab, which crunches the numbers and returns insights and health tips. Guo explained that the system is based on data collected across the globe, including Asian and Chinese people. Users can read all the states and tips through an app on mobile devices. Instead of giving unvarnished statistical data of calories burned or distance travelled, RySmart gives users more actionable tips, such as to drink more water or get outside and start walking.
