We see ChatGPT in more and more of our everyday apps. Microsoft implements it in search engine Bing, Snapchat has made a bot with it and the number of companies that say they will do something with it is growing and growing. A variant of ChatGPT for wearables has also been spotted: it is called WearGPT. Fitbit competitor Amazfit would also like to implement a chatbot on its GTR4 based on ChatGPT, called ChatGenius. But how exactly can such an AI interlocutor offer added value on a smartwatch?
There are many ways ChatGPT can help you on your wearable. Of course you can ask the same crazy questions, such as see if ChatGPT can make a nice silly joke, but there are also many applications that are more medical, sports and health. And they are perfect for a wearable. We mention a number of options:
Create a sports schedule
One of the most obvious things to ask ChatGPT is if it will create a sports schedule for you. It would be smart if the AI could ask if you do sports at home without attributes, how experienced you are, and so on. The AI has already proven that it can plan weekends away, so it should also be possible with sports schedules. This way you know exactly what to do on which day, and the smarter the AI gets, the better it can be applied to your age, experience, goal, and so on.
Help choose healthier foods
You’re in the supermarket and you’re hesitating between one or the other margarine. Suppose you want to lose weight or that you absolutely do not want a certain ingredient to be in the product, then you can just ask your wrist. ChatGPT could say, for example, that there are fewer calories in one tub than in the other. As an extension of the sports schedules, ChatGPT could also make diet schedules for people who want to eat more protein in addition to exercising or want to lose weight without having to open a Sonja Bakker book.
listening to you
Sure, a bot will listen to you anyway, but what if it did it in a more coach-like way? Not a psychologist, but ‘someone’ who listens to your problem, or just your story about how your day was. It is something that, for example, lonely elderly people can benefit from. It may not be a real person, if ChatGPT reacts a bit naturally (that’s the idea behind it), then you still have the feeling that someone has listened to you and hopefully you have talked it off a bit. ChatGPT on a wearable might even be able to lead a meditation or do other coaching-like things, but that would have to be closely monitored.
Giving tips about sleeping
In the example that Amazfit posted on LinkedIn, it was already visible that someone asked if ChatGenius had any tips for a better night’s sleep. Even if you don’t want the AI assistant to take over your life too much with all kinds of schedules and coaching, you can ask some smaller questions. So such a small question can be about your sleep. Maybe you want to know if there are any tips against sleep apnea, or if you want to know whether it is better to snooze or not. ChatGPT can answer it all, while all you have to do is talk. If you are already in bed, that immediately saves a bowl of blue light in your face.
As far as we’re concerned, ChatGPT is definitely an asset to wearables, especially if you can talk to it instead of just typing.
