Chip uses ECG to monitor heart, improving wearable accuracy

Samsung’s  Bio Processor uses ECG  to continuously measure the electric activity of the heart, improving its accuracy.  It must be worn on the skin near the heart, and includes built-in flash memory and Bluetooth for connecting to one’s phone.  The chip can also monitor PPG, ECG, skin temperature, GSR and body fat. The company describes this as a breakthrough in wearable accuracy.  While not yet available to consumers, it will be used in wearables for health, fitness, or biometric identification purposes.
