For a relatively low price, you can purchase a wearable to track how many steps you take, what your heart rate is, what your sleep patterns are, and so on. Such functions are the baseline for current technology.
With baseline wearables it’s possible to gather a piece of the picture, but the whole picture of your health cannot be gained without more advanced features - say, such as an understanding of your body’s movements and metrics.
That’s where the newly developed Biostrap comes in. Biostrap developers assert that their aim is to change the industry standard and have created a product that purportedly uses the same technology as physicians to monitor patient’s physical health.
So, what makes the Biostrap a more accurate and dependable wearable?
Although it costs slightly more than your baseline device, its capabilities suggest that it is a worthy investment for people who are serious about their health.
For $249, users receive two different devices that work in tandem to capture all of the body’s efforts during exercise. Together, the wristband and the shoe clip create a precise picture of your every move.
In fact, the Biostrap is said to extract more than 29 parameters and in turn offer a reliable account of a user’s Heart Rate Variability, Oxygen Saturation, Respiratory Rate, and more. Additionally, it is programmed to recognise over 20 different kinds of physical activities, taking its tracking capabilities well beyond just “steps”.Will this be the next big thing in wearables? We can’t be sure, but it definitely takes things to another level! Have you tried the Biostrap yet? Either way, leave us a comment below with your thoughts, we’d love to hear from you.
