Samsung's Simband is Writsable With Interchangeable Body Sensors

By Mario Aguilar on at

In the last year, Samsung has released three different smartwatches, in an apparent attempt to iterate and get out ahead of the pack with a viable product that's actually useful. Today, Samsung's showing off a concept for another, the Simband, a wristable designed for interchangeable body sensor modules. This is future stuff, but Samsung thinks this is future of how we understand our bodies.

The Simband is a conceptual/reference device that's part of a new fitness and health data platform. The overall platform is supposed to encompass not only hardware but a standardized approach to numbers, that'll allow manufacturers to develop to a standardized way of collecting and processing data.
