0

SAN FRANCISCO: Intel on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) announced it has bought fitness-tracking band maker Basis Science as part of a move into the hot wearable computing market. The California-based chip maker did not disclose how much it paid for Basis, which makes a strap-on wrist band that captures data such as heart rate, activity, and sleep to help people live healthier. Information is synched wirelessly with applications on smartphones. Wearable computing has been a hot trend thanks to inexpensive sensors that can be built into formerly dump items and to increasingly powerful smartphones that can be used to analyze data collected.
