Voice Of the Body


Samsung believes in creating a common platform base stencil that will allow developing wearables at a quicker pace. The first challenge was to pick a comfortable location for the wearable tech. The wrist was the best location to track and improve health care. The Simband is a watch that takes full use of the band and includes sensors that monitor blood and oxygen levels along with heart rate, blood flow, and water hydration continuously.

ECG and PPG sensors measures blood flow through an electrical impulse within the artery located in the wrist. This allows developers to develop new software and applications that will benefit our health and well-being. One of the fundamental problems with wearable gadgets is power. The Simband charges with a miniature sized battery pack that clips on the back on the watch, thus excluding the need to take off the gadget to charge. The watch also includes bluetooth and wifi to allow developers to get instant access to cloud. SAMI is like a bank that stores and controls your data that is only accessible to the user safely. Not only will the watch count calories and offer personal coaching, but it provides a wellness score and insights to keep track of your wellness. Samsung plans on partnering up with several companies this year to continue innovating health wellness.

FiLIP Smartwatch Helps Parents Keep Track Of Kids While Making Them The Coolest Parents Ever

As parents, we want to be sure that our kids are safe and where they are supposed to be. If you want to accomplish this without putting a cellphone in your kid’s pocket (as we know how big of a distraction that can be), then the FiLIP Smartwatch is a great alternative. Plus, it will make you the coolest parent ever.

This smartwatch can pinpoint your child’s location using GPS and is also a super cool looking watch. What kid wouldn’t want to wear this thing?

You can also program up to 5 numbers into the watch. Kids can then call those numbers with the touch of a button. Using the FiLIP app, parents can make calls, track their child’s location, send texts and even set “Safe Zones” so parent’s will know that their kiddo is at school and safe. The FiLIP will then send notifications to parents letting them know when their kid leaves and enters safezones.

The smartwatch is super simple to use. it has only two buttons. A red and black button. The red “Emergency” button will make a phone call to the first person on the list, if no-one answers it calls the remaining four. It also sends a notification with the child’s location to the first contact and even plays a calming melody.

Each gadget costs $199 and can be activated for $10 a month through AT&T. That includes unlimited GPS location and unlimited calling.
