And a sneak peek at a trial user’s real data
We’re burning the midnight oil as we prepare Lume™ for you.
Lume is currently in the final stages of testing to become the world’s first personalized metabolic measurement system. It’s exciting to be the first, and we’ve heard from an unbelievable number of you who are equally excited.
We know you have high standards, and so do we—so we’re working to make sure Lume lives up to those standards.
You’ll be among the first to know when Lume officially becomes available. In the meantime, here’s a sneak preview at a Lume dashboard showing real information taken from a real Lume trial user.
Lume has been designed to provide you with powerful and personalized information to help you optimize calorie balance in support of a healthy life, and to give you a simple and sustainable experience that successfully supports your health and weight goals.
The centerpiece of that journey is the Lume dashboard. It gives you perspective on your journey – both short term and long term – in real time.
Think of it as a flight plan where you know at all times where you are at relative to your departure and destination, and how to make the course corrections you need to successfully reach your destination.
Here it is explained another way, in terms of our trial user.
(A) Calories Consumed: The “Cal In” portion of the Lume dashboard shows that our trial user consumed 2,390 calories yesterday. This information on calorie consumption came from the Lume Scale which converts daily weight measurements to calories consumed - without food logging of any kind.
(B) SmartCal™: The “SmartCal” value of 2,440 represents the projected number of calories that our trial user will burn by the end of the day. This is a “learned” value based on the SmartCal algorithm using prior weekday and weekend calorie expenditures.
(C) Calorie Burn Goal: Since our trial user has a goal to burn 325 calories per day more than consumed, the “Cal Burn Goal” of 2,715 calories represents the goal for today based on yesterday’s calorie consumption. And, to reach that goal, the trial user needs to burn an extra 275 calories today (the minus number under the dome).
(D) Actual Calories Burned: The “Actual Cal Burn” value of 516 represents the number of calories that the trial user has burned so far today. These are real calories updated in real time. But, as you can tell from the indicator on the dial, it’s early in the day with plenty of time to make adjustments.
(E) Actual Calorie Deficit: The “Actual Cal Deficit” value provides a 14-day perspective on the trial user’s journey. From this, you can see that, despite the daily ups and downs, this trial user did pretty well managing their daily calorie balance over the last two weeks—showing an average daily calorie deficit of 407 calories against a planned goal of 325 calories. That’s a strong and positive accomplishment!
(F) Calorie Deficit Goal: The “Cal Deficit Goal” of 325, the straight line on the graph, is the value that our trial user budgeted to achieve their designated weight loss plan.
(G) Deficit Trend: As you can also see, a drop in their calorie management on Friday-Saturday of last weekend took them off plan for several days. The trial user attributes this to a family gathering that included good food and lots of laughs, leaving little time for activity. But here’s where a long term perspective is important: there’s no shame in spending quality time with family and taking a broader perspective shows that it was just a blip on the radar of their long-term plan to be healthy. In fact, over the last 14-day look-back, the trial user remained ahead of their 325 calorie daily deficit goal by 82 calories per day (averaging a calorie deficit of 407 calories a day)—something to be proud of—and a reminder that one or two off-plan days doesn’t spell disaster.
(H) Calorie Intake (Goal vs. Trend): You can also see that the trial user’s average calorie intake trend over the last seven days of 2,418 has been higher than their goal of 2,068 —but so has their average calorie burn. So again, it’s no cause for concern.
(I) Calorie Burn (Goal vs. Trend): The extra calorie consumption is okay because the trial user continues to maintain a trend of burning more calories than they consume. In this case, the trial user has been averaging 2,627 calories a day over the last week – higher than their goal of 2,393.
(J) Average Calorie Burn Rate (Goal vs. Trend): You can see that the trial user is slightly ahead of their goal in terms of average hourly calorie burn—a sign that their dedication to regular activity is paying off. Nice!
(K) The Flame: What’s the flame for? It indicates that the Armband is measuring calorie expenditure, and the “OK” next to it indicates the condition of the Armband’s battery.
The second dashboard illustration represents a day when the trial user was ahead of plan for the day. See if you can use the information above to interpret that dashboard for yourself!
Soon, Lume will available for you to better understand your personal metabolism. And when it is, you will be the first to know.
