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.
