Samsung announces the SIMBAND at the "Voice of the Body" event today

Samsung today made an announcement for SIMBAND at the "Voice of the Body" event. This band is like a reference platform for health sensors and with its design and work, the company hopes to achieve the new generation of fitness gadgets. The prototype has already been prepared and from its image we can see that it has been adorned with multiple sensors.

The sensors have been built into the device and some of these include an optical light sensor that can detect the variation of light absorption through the skin in order to come up with your pulse and other data. You will also be thrilled to find an ECG sensor on the wristband and every time you touch the clasp, an electrical route will be completed. According to Samsung, the SIMBAND is going to have a couple of different models because they aim to make it in a way which is suitable for advanced customization; the optical, electrical and physical components can all be swapped out.

With a new shuttle battery, the device is meant to be extremely power efficient to make it perfectly portable. A stronger battery doesn’t necessarily have to take a lot of space and the prototype watchface on stage is only about half the size of an SD card. Other basic features of the wristband include a 1GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 28nm chip along with WiFi and Bluetooth technologies.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
