Basis, the makers of a new health tracking watch, first unveiled its product in 2012 last year. During the launch, the band looked promising although the company hadn’t launched the mobile app for the device.
But yesterday at CES, Basis moved a step forward and gave a short indication of its app for Android devices. About the product, this band and dashboard allows its users to monitor their health such as skin temperature, heart rate, motion, calories burned and even their sleep patterns.
The watchband is also equipped with an LCD display to show the date and time. The device supports Bluetooth and is loaded with sensors.
To measure the sleep patterns of its users, the watchband includes a 3-axis accelerometer and an optical scanner to track blood flow and heart rate. The equipment uploads all the collected information into the cloud so that the users can view them later.
The Android app for the watchband includes automatic syncing that allows the users to sync data from the band to the dashboard. The dashboard is always up to date, and above all, the users can view their health habits from their mobile phones.
According to Basis, the app will be available by the end of March 2013. The company is also planning for an iOS version of the app and it is believed to reach this summer.
