Basis is a self-tracking watch that is taking exercise and health monitoring to a new level. The watch has multiple sensors where it touches your wrist, which measure blood flow, perspiration, and even skin temperature. Heart rate, sleep and activity metrics can be synced and viewed online, and the Basis has a bluetooth chip that will be enabled with the highly anticipated release of the company’s mobile app. With all the extra sensors, the watch is bulkier than other tracking technologies but its sleek design makes it unique. If the company added a GPS tracker, this watch could start to substantially compete with Garmin watches.
The goal of the device is for the user to spot trends in their daily and weekly activities to help form and shape healthy habits. This is definitely a device to try and I’m interested to see how Basis evolves.
