Smartwatches, health monitors, pedometers, activity trackers and virtual reality headsets continue to be a critical part of the emerging landscape of wearable technology, which promises to change the way we live.
A global Japanese corporation required the design and development of a new wearable electronic device that offers all the power and functionality of a smart device combined with the life-span of a less complex device.
With a quick turnaround time of only 3 month, Extel’s design and development team worked on the industrial, mechanical and electronic design of the product.
The wearable device went through various testing stages where the engineers evaluated its shape, design and functionality in order to create a product that could adapt to the users different purposes, with a focus on robustness whilst in constant use.
Product features included:
- Ultra-low power colour LCD
- Micro USB interface
- Heart rate monitor
- Temperature sensor
- Integrated buzzer
- 3D printed watch case
- Vibration motor
This market-first wearable technology offers a broad range of additional hardware features which makes it the perfect platform for consumer wearable device development.
