Samsung released an electronic bracelet Simband with six sensors to monitor the health status
The project SAMI Samsung introduced a modular approach to hardware. At a conference in San Francisco, the South Korean manufacturer introduced a “smart” bracelet Simband, which can be integrated with a variety of sensors that control the state of health of the user.
Accessory that looks like Samsung Gear S, capable of tracking multiple dimensions of the human body. On the inside of the strap is a sensor system that remove ECG parameters were analyzed galvanic skin response, is used to read indicators sweat, determine the level of carbon dioxide in the blood, body temperature. Photoplethysmography method heart rate monitor watch. The device is able to determine blood pressure.
Using ECG sensor device can predict the onset of arrhythmia or angina, and possibly in the future, and heart attacks. Bioelectrical sensor makes it possible to perform analysis of body mass index. Full battery will last for one week battery life and recharge Simband possible even in a dream, without removing the wrist.
The bracelet is equipped with a built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. In addition to information about health, Simband shows the current time and date. Supports three modes of operation: collection of information, trends and Spot Check. The latter allows you to gather information about the current heart rate. With the first mode it can be seen how the day varied frequency heart rate, blood pressure and the number of steps.
The modular design allows developers to use new items each sensor Prototyping own wearable devices. All the collected sensor data is stored on the cloud platform SAMI. At what price will be available Simband, is still unknown.
Wearable electronics ─ is a modern trend. According to forecasts IDC, sales of devices of this type in 2014 will amount to 19 million units. However, most modern companies derive a significant portion of revenue from software solutions. Creating a platform for health monitoring potentially allow corporations such as Samsung and Apple, to make a profit at the expense of services that are based on data from wearable gadgets.
