"Beurer CosyNight" app wins gold at the German Stevie Awards 2018

Come home to a pre-warmed bed. It's not just nice and cosy, but also helps you get to sleep. With the "beurer CosyNight" app, Beurer’s UB 190 and UB 200 heated underblankets can be conveniently controlled from your sofa or on the move. The app was developed in cooperation with APPSfactory, a multimedia agency, and recognised as a "Gold winner" at the German Stevie Awards.

Since 2002, the Stevie Awards have been awarded annually in various business sectors around the world; the German Stevie Awards have been a part of this since 2015. Outstanding achievements are recognised in over 80 categories.

This top-class business award is regarded as a major achievement in the German business world. The "beurer CosyNight" app impressed in the "Experimental & Innovation" category. The award ceremony took place on 27th April 2018 at the Hotel Adlon in Berlin.

"The reviews of the Alexa Skill and the 'beurer CosyNight app' show how enthusiastically end customers are adopting voice and app control in the health and well-being sector – we look forward to carrying out more innovative projects for Beurer," says Dr Alexander Trommen, CEO of APPSfactory, in regard to the successful collaboration.

Product Design 2018: Beurer presented with a Red Dot Award

reddot Award 2018

The jury, made up of around 40 international design experts, have decided: after evaluating thousands of products submitted from a total of 59 countries, three Beurer devices have stood out. Due to their excellent design, the HC 30 hair dryer, the IH 60 nebuliser and the Velvet Skin Pro IPL device have been awarded the Red Dot Award, a globally renowned quality seal for design and innovation.

 

The HC 30 hair dryer – functional and stylish

The HC 30 not only ensures great looking hair, but it also makes for an eye-catching feature in the bathroom. The stylish matt black of the soft-touch surface is interspersed with high-quality chrome accents.

The IH 60 inhalation device – small, light and extremely quiet

Whereas traditional compressed-air nebulisers are often loud, particular attention was not only paid to form and function, but also to volume and weight during the development of the IH 60. The result is a very small, lightweight device that operates extremely quietly.

The IPL Velvet Skin Pro – a professional treatment for silky smooth skin

Smooth, supple skin for longer – the professional IPL device now easily makes this a reality at home. The IPL Velvet Skin Pro works with state-of-the-art light technology used by dermatologists and beauty salons for professional hair removal. In addition to clean, elegant lines, the product boasts safe operation, which can also be supported by the "beurer MyIPL" app.

Beurer invests in Health-Tech Startup Ovy

As a strategic investor, Beurer is investing a six-digit amount in working with the Health-Tech Startup Ovy. Ovy is an app that allows women to calculate their cycle. The app will be supplemented with the Ovy Bluetooth® Basalt thermometer which Beurer will launch together with Ovy in mid-2018. With the Ovy Basalt thermometer, the measured values can be automatically transferred to the app via Bluetooth®.

"In our opinion, Ovy is the leading app in the field of cycle control with rapidly growing user numbers. Young women in particular are increasingly using natural methods of contraception. In addition, the planning of pregnancy is becoming an increasingly important topic. The combination of apps with new product technologies such as Bluetooth basalt thermometers offers new possibilities here." says Marco Bühler, Managing Director of Beurer GmbH.
