Samsung Simband First Look: Welcome to the Future of Wearables



Samsung Simband First Look: Adaptive Sensors

In case you didn't know, the new Simband from Samsung has been fitted with as many as six sensors. One of the major examples of multi-sensor modules is Simsense that have been developed for the product.

All in all, Simsense includes six different types of sensors: Electrocardiogram (ECG), Bio-Impedance (Bio-Z), Photoplethysmogram (PPG), Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), Accelerometer and Skin Temperature (thermometer).

Again, for example, the Electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor measures the electrical activity of the heart. For that, the electrodes are needed to be placed across the heart (meaning one on each side of the heart). On the other hand, the bio-impedance sensor, for heart rate measurement, aims at measuring the pulse wave of blood flow in an artery.

In a nutshell, the six sensors of the Simband are meant for keeping a check on your footsteps rate, heart rate, skin temperature, and more. It even helps you detect how much sweat your sweat glands are producing. In the end, all the six sensors combine to keep you up to date with all the information related to your health.

We haven't had too much time to play around with the Simband at the SDC, but we did manage to point out a few interesting features. And one of them being the optical sensors that track your blood pressure. The tech uses LED lights to track changes and "detect blood-volume change at microvascular level."
