According to IMS Research, the wearables market is poised to grow from 14 million devices shipped in 2011, to as many as 171 million units shipped by 2016, and given this explosive growth, there is understandably significant interest from investors.
"Wearable computing enables a data-driven approach to managing healthcare and fitness," said Arvind Sodhani, President of Intel Capital and Intel Executive Vice President. "By collecting heart rate, skin and ambient temperature data along with movement tracking, the Basis multi-sensor band opens up opportunities for data analytics driving deeper insights into health and personal behavior."
The Basis band is now available for purchase, priced at $199. For more information on buying the Basis band, purchasing accessories and free web service, and for the latest product updates, please visit: www.mybasis.com.
