As health sensors are increasingly integrated into everyday items, Samsung has announced a multi parameter monitoring belt, which will debut at CES next week. WELT records one’s waist size, eating habits, steps taken, and the amount of time spent sitting. Data is sent to an accompanying app. It is speculated that the smart belt will use the Bio-Processor described by ApplySci last month.
The belt was developed in Samsung’s Creative Lab (C-Lab), where employees are encouraged to pitch ideas with creative or altruistic elements. Winners are given time off to develop their ideas.
Other C-Lab releases will include TipTalk, which allows smartwatch listening from touching a finger to the ear, and rink, a VR motion controller.
