Venture-backed healthtech start-up Ultrahuman has acquired LazyCo, a wearables company, for an undisclosed sum.

With the acquisition, the company hopes to generate deeper metabolic insights and better overall health insights for consumers. 

Ultrahuman, which is available in a range of countries including the UK, provides intelligent nudges based on glucose biomarkers. This helps people optimize their exercise, sleep, and nutrition based on deep insights from the platform.

“We want to make it easy to get healthy. At Ultrahuman, we’re deep believers in passive personalized health, specifically in a health platform that requires very minimal effort from a user’s perspective. This perfectly aligns with the philosophy of LazyCo.” said Mohit Kumar, founder and chief executive of Ultrahuman. 

“Ultrahuman’s vision of making health more personalized and impactful for people syncs with LazyCo’s vision of building products that solve problems for people in the most effortless ways. Together, we can create a deeper impact on the overall health of the world,” added Apoorv Shankar, co-founder and chief executive of LazyCo.

Ultrahuman has raised $25 million to date.

Its investors include Alpha Wave Incubation (AWI), which is backed by DisruptAD and managed by Falcon Edge, Steadview Capital, Nexus Venture Partners, Blume Ventures and Utsav Somani’s iSeed fund, and a range of marquee founders and angel investors including Tiger Global’s Scott Schleifer.
