When it comes to augmented reality (AR) based wearables, we’ve mostly seen them come in the form of smart glasses. However, the problem with such devices is that they’re big and sometimes a bit bulky, making them something you wouldn’t necessarily want to wear all the time.
If you own a Fitbit device, you might want to check for a software update because according to reports, it seems that the company has quietly enabled blood oxygen tracking on some of its wearables. This includes devices like the Fitbit Versa, Ionic, and Charge 3, where some users are reporting seeing the new feature.
Chronolife was back at CES 2020 with its biometric T-Shirt Nexkin launched in November 2019, a consumer version of Chronolife’s medical solution that is expected to launch as a remote health monitoring product in 2020, with FDA and CE class 2a certifications. In 2021, the company will add to the lineup a patented predictive solution for Chronic Heart Failure with its proprietary HOTS algorithm for mobile phones.
In this day and age, no longer is it necessary to wear chest straps in order to measure your heart rate. Our heart rates can be measured by using devices like fitness trackers and smartwatches, or to a certain extent, even our headphones are capable of tracking our heart rate.
One of the features of the new Apple Watch is its always-on display. This might seem like a drain on battery life, but Apple has managed to balance it out by using an LTPO display. The good news is that this year’s iPhones could also end up using similar technology, resulting in potentially better battery life.
Our smartwatches and fitness trackers these days come with built-in heart rate sensors. While these might be useful for tracking our workouts and maybe even saving our lives, they can also be used to solve crime. This is how police figured out that an alleged victim of an anti-semitic stabbing might have been lying about the attack.
We’ve seen how Apple has created (PRODUCT)RED devices before, like with the iPhone. However, according to a report from WatchGeneration.fr, they claim that Apple could have a new (PRODUCT)RED option for the Apple Watch Series 5 in the works that could be announced soon enough.
One of the newer features in the Apple Watch is the ability for it to check whether or not the user is experiencing Afib. This is thanks to the built-in ECG monitoring tool that according to reports, has saved quite a number of lives ever since it was introduced. However, it seems that not everyone is enamored by the feature.
CES 2020 will be taking place next week. This is an exciting time of the year because CES is easily the largest consumer electronics show in the year. Many companies usually take this opportunity to announce new products, show off prototypes that they’re working on, along with various concepts and ideas that they are working on.

If you’re in the market for a new smartwatch, you might be interested to learn that Honor has announced that its MagicWatch 2 is now available for purchase in the UK where it is also expected to eventually find its way to WEU markets in January 2020. The watch is priced at £159.99 and was released on the 20th of December, meaning that you can go out and buy it […]
The problem with wearable headsets is that it can be cumbersome, especially for those who already wear glasses. This means that the added weight of the frame and the glasses could make it too heavy to be used for extended periods of time. However, it seems that Apple could have a rather unique and novel solution to that problem: holographic imaging.
Like with a lot of exercise, there’s no point in doing it unless you’re doing it properly. This is because sometimes using the wrong form can actually lead to injury which in turn could make things worse or not as effective. However, since not all of us can afford to pay for classes and personal trainers, this can be a bit tricky.
When you think of Apple, what do you associate the company with? Depending on who you ask, the answer could be computers, smartphones, tablets, the iPod, and so on, but apparently that’s not necessarily the legacy that Apple’s CEO Tim Cook wants for the company. Instead, it seems that Cook is hoping that Apple’s legacy will be a more lofty one: health care.
If you’re trying to track a workout with your Apple Watch, you’ll have to manually select the activity from the watch itself. However, it seems that in the future, you may no longer have to. This is according to a recently discovered patent where it suggests that future Apple Watches might be able to tell if you’re indoors or outdoors.
