Helping Individuals Lead A Healthier Life By Providing Real-time Fitness Data
BodyMedia sought to provide live activity updates over a smartphone or tablet and to prolong battery life. They decided to add Bluetooth® Smart Ready technology into the CORE 2 monitor. Integrating wireless into a device can have its nuances in both hardware and firmware. Integrating a new technology such as energy saving Bluetooth® Smart Ready adds another layer of complexity.
With Digi's help integrating the new Bluetooth Smart Ready technology, the CORE 2 will enable body monitoring data to be captured on BodyMedia’s mobile app for Smart Ready-enabled smartphones and tablets, eliminating the delays involved in computer upload. This real-time data paired with data-rich mobile and online apps will assist consumers in making smart on-the-go food and exercise decisions.
Time to market was a key concern for Body Media and Digi Wireless Design Services exceeded project delivery expectations. Our engineering team’s deep expertise in connected product solutions enabled them to develop a robust, wireless solution that to help individuals lead a healthier lifestyle.
