The idea is not new, there are other apps that try to do it, how well no idea, haven't see any testing by a 3rd party.

A more recent article that i still remember http://www.popsci.com/google-using-ai-count-calories-food-photos

Voila, Bert. You got it. It's about the biz model. And especially if you can sell this to healthcare providers rather than individual consumers, it's even better.

It looks like the innovation is reading your abdomen size. If it can do this accurately, I can see the benefit. Many health  officials like to use BMI, which is really just height and weight. While that works for many people, the problem is that if you work out in a gym, you can actually gain weight when you build muscle even though you are losing fat. An accurate abdomen measurement would be a much better way to determine your progress.

Of course you can also see if you need to use the next hole in your belt.

I think the main innovation here, other than perhaps additional bells and whistles comapred with the competition, is the infinite revenue stream to Kyocera. These "provide a service" business models seem to be on the rise. Even Windows 10 is built with this goal in mind.

The epidemic may have started in the late 1970s, with the advent of cable TV. You don't just buy something once, and use it many times. Instead, you get suckered into providing an infinite revenue stream for someone else.

The most telling thing about this announcement, I thought, was that although Kyocera unveiled a new wearable device, the Japanese company is pitching the new IoT/wearable device not as a standalone consumer product, but as a comprehensive healthcare service. The newly established partnership with healthcare providers seems to be the key.
