Hi everyone ! I'm Anthony, co-founder of One X One X is a patented biosensing device that understands how healthy your diet and lifestyle are. One X measures your skin antioxidant level, directly and non-invasively from the palm of your hand. Your skin antioxidant status constantly changes in response to your diet and lifestyle habits. With One X, you can track how these habits impact your body, enabling you to make better, more healthful choices. One X supports multi-users thanks to fingerprint recognition. One X is currently available for Pre-Order on Indiegogo https://www.indiegogo.com/projec... Looking forward to your feedback and to answer your comments.

The "science" link on your site shows some very general information/research on a topic basis, but not on RS as a correlating measurement. To date, RS has been shown to be a good measure of fruit and vegetable intake (which I already know since I am the one eating them). I do not believe that there has been positive research showing RS results correlating to overall health, do you have this research?

@airjoshb what is RS?

@airjoshb Hi Joshua. Thanks for your comment. Let's break it in two parts: 1) Skin carotenoids as a surrogate marker of oxidative stress, Our website in "SEE THE RESEARCH" section links dozens of reports. But we have prepared a special blog post that reviews the existing literature: https://goo.gl/QKJ01H. You can dive even further in this exhaustive review we worte regarding non-invasive assessment of skin carotenoids: https://goo.gl/fKI0Oh. Although One X is not making any medical claim, hundreds of peer review studies have shown the prevention role of carotenoids on cancer, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative diseases, obesity, and even association with longevity markers, skin health and eye vision. 2) Skin carotenoids and healthy nutrition. As mentioned, carotenoids are the best biomarkers of fruit and vegetable intake which is a very interesting biomarker to track to assess the quality of your diet and above all to understand the interaction between your diet with other lifestyle habits. Skin carotenoids measurement are also way superior (vs. blood) because they ultimately reflect what your body is able to absorb (skin is a tissue). Conversely, junk food can lower the skin antioxidant level through oxidation but also because your nutritional / antioxidant intakes are too low to be transported to the skin that constantly regenerates. If you go through our blog post relating our 40 days experiment tracking skin carotenoids every 3 hours, you'll see that skin carotenoids reflect very significantly specific antioxidant and vitamin intakes such as Vit. A, E, C carotenoids but also some type of fatty acids that are necessary for proper nutrient metabolism. https://goo.gl/rG1MIz We've measured so many persons who though they were eating well but with low to average score. (People sometimes think that their lunch salad is providing them with enough nutrients but truth is that they usually need a much higher variety of veggies / fruits to increase their level, and with enough fat to ensure proper absorption) Let me know your thoughts

@hexsprite @airjoshb Joshua refers to Reflectance Spectroscopy (RS) which is an optical technique to measure skin molecules concentration such as carotenoids.

@hexsprite Reflective or Raman Spectroscopy. Basically the method they are using to analyze the skin
Anthony Weil
Anthony WeilMaker@anthony_weil · CEO / Founder @ One X
@airjoshb @hexsprite Actually Raman Spectroscopy use expensive laser beams while Reflectance Spectroscopy uses LEDs. The technology behind One X is called Spatially Resolved Reflectance Spectroscopy: a combination of optics and algorithms. We reach 90% correlation with Gold Standard Raman Spectroscopy, for 2% of its cost.

This looks like snake-oil, til I see warranted scientific evidence. This yells of Anat Baniel Therapy style tactics. Skin anti-oxidant level is irrelevant to overall healthy diet and lifestyle. Please show me clear and explicit evidence that skin-anti-oxidant level is relevant to health.

@datarade Hi Kumar, please read the comments on this page and you will see all the studies linked: We link all the scientific and technical evidences on our Indiegogo campaign page and website. If you want to dive into this, feel free to read our review: https://goo.gl/fKI0Oh In this blog post, different scientific studies regarding carotenoids and Health: http://blog.one-x.co/index.php/2...

Hi Anthony, this looks really cool. Can you integrate other data with One X? For example, if I use a Fitbit daily, can I incorporate the data/steps there within the One X app?
Anthony Weil
Anthony WeilMaker@anthony_weil · CEO / Founder @ One X
@anthony_stylianou Indeed, One X app syncs with most wearables and lifestyle tracking apps to automatically gather and learn about your lifestyle habits without any input effort.

Hey team, I'm not that much into fitness. Is it still relevant for me to pre-order one?
Anthony Weil
Anthony WeilMaker@anthony_weil · CEO / Founder @ One X
@michaelohana One X is not into "step tracking" as most wearables are. Actually, by monitoring your skin antioxidant level, One X brings you a direct "big picture" snapshot of how healthy your whole lifestyle is. Your level measured by One X sensor is influenced by your nutrition and other lifestyle habits that can deplete or protect your skin antioxidant level (sleep, exercise, stress, pollution, alcohol, sun). Regarding Exercise specifically, regular and balanced training tend to increase your skin antioxidant status. But we've also noticed that high volume training (like marathon / long-distance triathlon) can exert too much oxidative stress and keep your skin antioxidant level lower.
