Bio Processor chip from Samsung leaves current tracking limits behind

This could help to change the expectations that consumers can have from wearable technology.

Among the most popular uses for wearable technology at the moment is health tracking but despite the fact that it currently has its limitations, Samsung is hoping to change those restrictions using its new Bio Processor chip technology.

The current generation of wearables is limited to tracking functions such as heart rate, breathing, steps, and similar.

That said, with technology such as the Bio Processor chip, the plan is the bring the next generation of wearables up to an entirely new level of options for users. This will include a range of new options for health monitoring so that users can keep track of their vital signs in real-time. This will be possible only with new and improved sensors, such as those under development by Samsung, among others.

The Bio Processor chip is meant to have a range of additional benefits over what is currently available.

According to a recent announcement from Samsung, this chip will be able to collect a notably broader spectrum of health sensor data through improved built-in memory, power management, a digital signal processor and its micro-controller. What is considered to be exceptionally appealing about this new technology is that it can use the sensors to measure the data that is collected without having to rely on any other types of processors. This chip provides everything it needs to be self sufficient to that degree.

So far, this tiny little processor has been compared to heart rate monitoring chips that have been previously released. However, Samsung has differentiated itself by integrating sensors to measure additional functions as well. For instance, it is integrated with sensors that will measure skeletal muscle mass, body fat levels, heart rhythm, heart rate, skin temperature and even the individual’s skin temperatures.

Samsung’s Bio Processor chip is already in mass production and it is anticipated that this technology will start to be incorporated into devices as early as the first half of 2016. It will be interesting to see how rival companies respond to this new and advanced range of wearable technology tracking options.

Next smartwatch from Samsung now for sale in the US

The Gear S2 wearable technology devices have now been released onto American store shelves.

After the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch received a fantastic response from consumers within its own home marketplace in South Korea, the device has now traveled to the other side of the world where it has been released to shoppers in the United States.

There are two different models of the Gear S2 wearables that are being released for U.S. consumers.

The two models of the smartwatch that have been rolled out in the U.S. are the Gear S2 and the Gear S2 Classic. Both of those devices run on the Tizen operating system, which belongs to Samsung. The device, itself, features a 1.2 inch round Super AMOLED screen. It has a rotating bezel, a 360 x 360 pixel resolution. The predictions are that it will be the Samsung Gear S2 3G model. That gadget can be paired with all Galaxy devices, as well as any smartphones that aren’t made by Samsung but that are running on Android 4.4 or later and that have a minimum of 1.5 GB of RAM.

There are about 18 pre-installed apps currently added to the Gear S2 smartwatch, among which 12 are permanent.

Other applications in the Samsung Gear S2 include the “buddy”, which makes it possible to automatically favorite your contacts, as well as the “looking for my device,” which makes it possible to find out where connected devices are located, in addition to the “Syrup Wallet”, which is a mobile payments application through membership-based services.

When the Gear S2 was first launched for preorder in South Korea, it managed to sell out in a matter of two hours. Now the wearables are available to consumers in the United States and some are predicting that this will seriously cut into the market that had previously been led by Apple. In fact, there have been predictions that this could go so far as to take down the power of the Apple Watch.

The smartwatches are available starting at $299.99 and for as much as $349.99.
