Its being a while I start writing a post. But because Brunei now facing economics and high numbers of jobless problem. A lot of locals now desperate finding ideas, sell and startup business. What many do not know, the multi-level marketing are now taking advantages of such situation especially on health and make its way to technology category. The HELO Wellness Band is one of them.
I was at first curious about these band when I heard from my colleague asking me if I am programmer and then introduce me about this HELO Wellness Band thingy. It advertises as health and fitness technology product that have many features you don’t find by most current wrist band in the today market. Like measuring breathing rate, heart rate and able to send emergency SOS alert to your family or friends members if detect abnormal health activities. All this great stuff will cost you US$199.00. Not only that, Germanium Kit US$180.00, the band kit US$150.00 and lastly, the Helo LX Charger Adapter cost only US$10.00! OMG! The cheapest one!
Indeed, the technology these days without doubt able to perform such futuristic function. Sadly, I see Helo wrist band is nothing a more overpriced band trying to categories itself as luxury brand and trying to advertise its superior health monitoring features. The price of the separate kits are already a joke. The more I research this, the more shit shows up. First, let the Helo App speak for itself.
There you go, for entertainment purpose only and measurements are based on estimate calculation. So you are spending either US$199.00 or bundles that cost you from US$744-$1999.00 based on entertainment for an estimate measurements gadgets that may not be accurate? Don’t forget, you have to pay for Helo Pro plan for US$12.00 monthly to unlock bio analysis (*upcoming and not available, mind you). FISHY!!!
Obviously, Helo wrist band is just a piece of same fitness hardware sold in the market. You can even buy less than US$100 that possible come with same features if you look hard. Seriously guys, stop falling into the MLMs. Their pyramid structure will never disappear no matter how hard they try to cover. If you are so desperately for money, just be careful not to lose family and friends going that route.
