Hydration Patented red light scanning technology
The Story of LVL The LVL band was initially created by Dustin Freckleton. Throughout his life, he had always known the importance of hydration, but never practiced staying hydrated consistently. One day, Freckleton, 24 years of age at the time, was going about his normal daily routine when he suddenly had a stroke. At the hospital, his doctors explained to him that the stroke had been caused by extreme dehydration. After this life-threatening event occurred, he had temporary partial paralysis and had to spend the next three months learning how to walk again. During this time, he questioned what this incident had taught him and how he could translate that experience and the importance of hydration to the rest of the world. Hence, the creation of the LVL hydration monitor.

LVL Hydration Monitor Band of your choice Charging cable Mobile app (iOS and Android) Color & Materials: Silicone Black, Space Cadet Leather Black, Brown Band Length Sizes: Small, Large
The overall design of the LVL hydration wristband is quiet simple and extremely easy to use. The companies designers created an OLED touch screen that displays results in color and additional buttons were included on the side of the screen for any extra information. The company collaborated with world-renown design company, frog, to create the design for the wearable. Currently, LVL provides three different designs for their costumers to choose from; Silicone, Brown Leather and Black Leather. In the future, the company plans on expanding the design options that their costumers can wear to coral (pink-red), aqua haze (blue-grey), uni (yellow-green), and space cadet (navy blue). The physical size of the device is 17MM X 45MM and the screen size is 12MM X 24MM.
The Future for LVL
Red Light Technology In order to obtain the most accurate results for consumer’s hydration levels, LVL spent over four years brainstorming, creating, experimenting, and developing the best possible technology that would be able accomplish those goals. After years of hard work, the company delivered a red light technology, which is a close parallel to infrared light. This technology has the power to measure 10 times deeper into the human body, which greatly enhances the accuracy in comparison to the green light technology that other wearables in the industry use. According to LVL, “the red light shines into the body using specialized and consumer grade LED’s. As the light passes through the body, each wavelength is absorbed and reshaped in a unique way that allows us to generate a spectrographic ‘picture’ of the water content and other physiologic activities happening in the body at that point in time...the accuracy is +/- 2.7 bpm compared to the average 14 bpm in other wearables.” The band is as accurate as urine, body weight and blood tests. Simultaneously, it is able to measure a person’s dehydration levels, as well as accurately assessing ones’ heart rate. In order to obtain this information and validate the technology’s success, the company endlessly tested over 250 subjects in what they call their sweat lab. In this unbelievably hot and dry environment, LVL asked their subjects to workout for 5 hours in an atmosphere of 102-105 degrees F and 60% humidity. The athlete remained dehydrated for over 2 hours of the workout. Once the subject reached a certain percentage in body weight loss, they were then hydrated over 100% of what they lost during the workout session.
BSX exceeded its $50,000 Kickstarter goal on the first day of the campaign.
Mission Located in Austin, Texas and founded in 2012, BSX Technologies is a wearable sensor company with an integrated optical sensor that simultaneously measures the body’s most critical bio signals including hydration, heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen and more. At BSX we believe that everyone can improve how they feel and how they train. It all starts with measuring what matters.
Before LVL was created, BSX launched their business by selling a separate piece of fitness technology, BSX Insight, that industry experts predict can increase an athletes performance by 25%! Similar to the LVL band, it uses LED lights to look into a user’s muscles and patented lactate threshold technology that has the ability to measure aerobic and anaerobic fitness. The ultimate goal of this product is to allow users to optimize their training and workouts, as well as record improvements.The results have the same accuracy, if not better, as blood tests. The product is target toward both training and racing.
Competing Brands in The Market
HALO The only reason HALO is included as a top competitor is because it is the only other wearable on the market that has hydration monitoring as a feature on the technology. But when a consumer really looks into the overall features and benefits included in the band, there are a very minimal amount of both. Although HALO provides hydration monitoring, the technology lacks smart buttons, call/text notifications, a heart rate monitor, activity tracking, water resistance, and has a short battery life. The price of the band is $149.99, the current price of the pre-sale price of the LVL band. The HALO edge is the only product the company currently produces, there are no current reviews on the band, and the only place to find any information on the wearable technology is on HALO’s website. No fitness or heath companies are currently talking about HALO, which leaves consumers with many unanswered questions, but also a sense of wariness about the overall accuracy and value of the wearable. According to HALO’s website, their hydration monitor system is presented as this: Phase 1:Baseline Calibration Athletes wear the device for a few days during low activity periods to collect baseline data. This allows us to calibrate the initial hydration baseline for each individual. The baseline will refine over time as more data is collected, but this initial calibration gives us a great starting point. Phase 2:Daily Monitoring After the calibration we’ll lock in that baseline range, which will establish three player hydration zones: Euhydration (green) Zone, Hyperhydration (blue) Zone and Dehydration (red) zone. The H1 wearable device will display for your athletes in real-time which hydration zone they are in, allowing players to properly prepare for practices and games, and recover afterwards. Phase 3: Hydration Analytics Over time we can begin to analyze an individual’s overall hydration management. Are they improving or getting worse? How do they best recover, or what conditions cause them to dehydrate more easily? Halo’s hydration experts will help you analyze each of your players to discover their specific hydration needs.
FIBIT Comparing the Competition in the Market This dominating wearable company provides a total of 8 different technologies for their consumers. As quoted from their website, their mission is, “To empower and inspire you to live a healthier, more active life. We design products and experiences that fit seamlessly into your life so you can achieve your health and fitness goals, whatever they may be.” Fitbit offers wellness programs for their users such has, Fitbit Group Health, Fitter Personal Trainer, and PurePulse (heart rate technology). They supply to dozens of retailers such as Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Amazon, REI, Dick’s Sporting goods, and many more. Some of the features on a number of their wearable consist of call, text & calendar alerts, reminders to move (coming soon), up to 5 day battery life, music control, sleep tracking, and activity tracking. Like most wearables in the industry, they offer a phone app to go along with their bands that is updated consistently via bluetooth. Due to the vast popularity and house-hold name that this brand carries, Fitbit is undoubtably our biggest and most intense competitor. With the predication of the growth in the wearable technology industry, Fitbit is expected to continue to thrive and succeed. But the main feature that their technology lacks is the hydration monitor that leaves LVL with an enormous competitive advantage.
Looking at the comparing attributes between companies, it is important the note the highlighted sections that represent the added value the customer can recieve when purchasing the LVL device. LVL and Halo are the only devices on the current market that have hydration monitors. When comparing the two, LVL has an activity tracker, sleep monitor, heart rate monitor, and suffiecient battery life that Halo does not. Althoguh Halo specializes in hydration, the monitor technology is 10x less accurtate than LVL’s and we there for don’t find it to be much of a treat. Fitbit, however, already has the brand awareness and recognition that LVL is not close to. We argue that the additional $50 that LVL charges over both Fibit and Halo is meaningful because it gives the customer greater value through this extreme accurate technology of measuring hydration that no one brand has. According to BSXTechnologies, “A recent survey by the MEMS and the Sensor Industry Group polled 706 US consumers and showed that 63% of respondents believed that accuracy was a highly important feature and 74% would consider buying a new wearable if the accuracy could be shown to help them better manage their health”.

How to Reach Baby Boomers
DMN3 July 2015
Baby Boomers and Social Media Usage
Analyzing The Data - Babyboomers are most influenced by search engines when learning about a company. Search engines are the main source og building brand awareness. This stresses the importance of online pressence through company website along with press and article shared online regarding the company. - Aside from search engines, Babyboomers are most effectied by word of mouth and how that is shared in their personal social media platforms (predominately in Facebook). These influencers will give Boomers that extra nudge to look up the brand or even to make the final purchase.
DMN3 July 2015
From a survey of 1,000 people 84.9% of Boomers said they use or belong to Facebook.
Facebook marketing includes sponsoring on sidebars, creating an intreging home page with brand updates, and forming eye-catching videos or articles are can be shared to go viral. According to Larisa Bedgood from DataMentor, â€œOver 27 million social networking users in the U.S. are over the age of 55, with almost 19 million of them active on Facebook specifically... They also prefer having one-to-one interaction with retailers and will use social sites simply to find contact information to get in touch with retailers through alternate channels such as phone or emailâ€?. It is crucial for LVL to make their online pressence on Facebook to be as clean and clear as ever so the target market can find the information the need easily. DataMentor 2016

Fitbit Marathon Promotional Event
Opinion Leaders The amount of brand and product awareness/recognition that can come out of collaborations and fitness events can cause the success of a business to skyrocket. In this specific example, Fitbit collaborated with the one of the worlds biggest fitness events on the planet, New York City Marathon. Not only does this partnership produce an immense amount of promotion for the company by simply having their name associated with the event, but also by Fitbit actually advertising their brand, products, and services at the race/fitness event. This type of event can get participants thinking about the product and later purchasing it to use while training for an upcoming event(s). By having company vendor booths placed within the race environment it provides them the opportunity to spread word of mouth, but also allows the business to make a substantial amount of sales during the event period. This is extremely important because it gives businesses the opportunity to directly interact with consumers who are interested in their product and want to learn more about it. Not only is sponsoring an event a great opportunity to interact with and meet new customers, but it is also a good way to meet other businesses that are not direct competitors. The best characteristic of being a sponsor is that most likely all of the people at the event are potential target customers. Due to Fitbit’s major success in the wearable industry, they have been able to fund their own fitness event called Tiberon for the past few years. It is a half marathon/5K race that takes place every year in California. They are sponsored by numerous health-promoting companies and donate the event’s proceeds to a handful of charities. This type of event promotes their business and product in an extremely positive manner and enhances the reputation of the company by being associated with these other businesses involved in the health world. In the future, we see BSX being able to create events similar to Fitbit’s Tiberon in order to promote the importance of hydration, staying active, and leading a maintaining a healthy life.
Ronda Rousey, UFC Fighter “People say this all the time and everyone like nods their head and is like ‘Oh yeah, totally,’ but no one ever does it, including myself. I can do better at it, is just drinking a lot of water, like a gallon and a half, two gallons a day, like straight water all day.”
Al Horford, Atlanta Hawks “I drink lots of water. Getting my rest; sleeping is very important. ... Those are things that allow me to work and prepare every day. ... It’s almost like a lifestyle. You have to sacrifice, especially the way that you eat. I think that determines a lot on how you’re going to perform.” Age: 27 Two- time NBA All-Star; two-time NCAA National Champion.
Jose Bautista, Toronto Blue Jays “My muscles get sore the next day if I don’t eat enough protein or drink enough water. Recovery time has a lot to do with diet.” Age: 32 Three-time MLB All-Star; two-time MLB Home Run Champion (2010-2011).
Sponsor Pitch 2016
Buzz Marketing is a great way for LVL get the word spread for them about their brand and product. Here is a great example of Buzz Marketing that has already happened to sponsor LVL from Bravo: “The fainting spell that Hillary Clinton experienced at the 9/11 memorial ceremony this year, and that made headlines worldwide, was actually a result of dehydration, not the pneumonia she’s been fighting. What could she have done to avoid it, besides remember to hydrate properly? And how can we remember to water ourselves throughout the day (or a night out), short of tattooing a reminder on both hands? A company called BSX Athletics has an idea: A new wearable hydration monitor called the LVL” - Aly Walansky

Value Added Pricing Strategy
Executive Salaries, Rent, Heat, Property Taxes , Insurance, Interest Expense
Because the LVL hydration monitor offers consumers an added bonus in features (wristband) and benefits (to their health), we have chosen to include the technology in the value-added price category. The reason we believe that it is associated with value added pricing is because it supplies customers with an entirely new set of health information that no other wearables on the market provide. Companies such as Fitbit, Garmin, and Misfit all present extremely similar features when compared to one another, which is why the hydration monitor puts LVL on a completely heightened â€œLVL.â€? This feature is able to differentiate the technology from the rest of the competitors to the point where BSX is able to raise the price of their product. The LVL user is willing to pay more because they know they are receiving more value, but also because they want a greater experience.
Appendix Total Economic Value
TEV = cost of the next-best alternative + value of the performacne differential
The next best alternative to the $200 LVL hydration monitor is Fitbit Charge2 at $149.95. The value of performance that makes LVL better than the Charge2 is the hydration monitor and the increased accuracy due to the red light technology. BSX technology claims that this advancement is 10 times more accurate than the competing green light technology. This added value makes up for the $50 extra cost that LVL charges its consumers.
Estimated Future Annual Revenues
Wearable Technology Opens Doors of New Benefits for Channeling
Wearable technology stands as its own emerging channel. Companies have an incredible new opportunity to really get to know their consumer by being with them as they move throughout their day. Not only do wearables create an immensely personal experience because the results are specific to the customer, but the companies are directly communicating with their end users. By these companies developing new features, benefits, and insights into their consumers lives, it throughly deepens that business to customer relationship.
“The sweet spot for wearables today is utility. There’s a stunning range of fitness devices that provide a flood of data like heart rate, calories burned, perspiration, movement, distance, location, and more. While the data itself might be interesting at first, people purchase those products to make a meaningful difference in their lives; to become healthier, fitter, better rested, happier. As Aaron Filner, a product manager at Facebook told me:
Kickstarter revenues since July (4 months) = $1,186,983
‘If a device doesn’t help someone change their behavior, how long will they keep using it? It needs to make a difference to be valuable over the long term.’ ”
One year revenue: $1,186,983 X 3(4 months) = $3,560,949
