New Bluetooth 4.0 Heart Rate Belt Will Monitor Heart Rates
Posted Jun 10 2011 2:56am
Here we go with one more blue tooth connected device. The information will sent to a Smartphone and has a new type of chip from Nordic Semiconductor. I have written several times about the blue tooth inhaler which came on the scene almost 3 years ago so it looks like blue tooth mHealth devices will be growing.
There’s also a blue tooth water bottle out there too that will tell you when to drink.
There’s more here about the blue tooth inhaler including a video that shows the whole data collecting side of the device.
What is interesting about the belt is the the “industrial” company that will be making the device, not a healthcare company. BD
OEM/ODM specialist Dayton Industrial is set to commence volume production of a low energy Bluetooth 4.0 heart-rate chest belt using Nordic Semiconductor's new µBlue™ nRF8001 chip.
