[CES 2014] Basis B1, a $199 health tracker watch, was introduced to the market a little over a year. On Monday, Basis Science showed its new model at CES, the Basis Carbon Steel Edition with its new Advanced Sleep Analysis feature, which is accessible from the iOS and Android companion apps.
Basis Carbon Steel edition features an elegant chassis with polished chrome details and a stretchable, silicone black strap. The Basis Health tracker is equipped with four type of sensors, including an optical blood flow sensor that keeps track of the heart rate.
Besides heart rate and motion, the sensors placed in the band capture perspiration and skin temperature. The Body IQ technology collects and analyzes the data captured by the sensors to calculate steps taken, calories burned and sleep quality, and it is able to monitors activities like walking, running and biking.
Basis multi-sensors allows Advanced Sleep Analysis to automatically identify and monitor the sleep phases REM Sleep, Deep Sleep and Light Sleep and the various events occurring during the night such as sleep interruption or toss-and-turn. Unlike other wearable devices, there is no need to press a button to start recording your sleep that is great!
All the information related to sleep quality alongside activity tracking and physiological metrics is displayed in web-based and mobile dashboards that will be available on January 21 in the version 2.0 of the Basis app for iOS, Android and Web. New features include REM Sleep, Deep Sleep and Light Sleep Tracking, Personal Sleep Score and Automatic Sleep Capturing. By comparing daily sleep scores, users can track their progress and improve their overall sleep quality.
The new Basis Carbon Steel Edition is available now for $199 on the Basis website, the previous model, Basis B1is still available for purchase, priced at $179, at the Basis store and on Amazon.
