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.
