STM32L powered tiny and accurate mems heart monitor from PulseOn
PulseOn is a new wearable tiny heart monitor that tracks your heart rate continuously and suggest what your heart rate means. The optical sensor based wrist device does multiwavelenght measurement with builtin algorithms to extract and analyze heart rate for different conditions.
PulseOn uses STMicroelectronics's MEMS accelerometer and embeds STM32L microcontroller.STM32L is exclusively designed for extreme low power consumption, and also the MEMS used in this device is space and power saving.
ST supports PulseOn by praising the product for its heart-rate measurement accuracy and reliability at the level delivered by an electrocardiogram, which is proved using extensive scientific testing under all possible scenarios and conditions, from physical inactivity up to the highest exertion levels in various cardio-intensive activities.
“This small and fashionable device is set to watch the wearer’s heart and make a big difference to their life,” said Benedetto Vigna, Executive Vice President and General Manager Analog, MEMS and Sensors Group, STMicroelectronics. “PulseOn’s decision to rely on ST’s sensors and control chips confirms our enabling role in the development of innovative, people-friendly applications that contribute to improving healthcare and wellness.”
“The superior precision and performance of ST chips have enabled us to apply the strictest scientific standards to the PulseOnheart-rate measurement technology, producing reliable results that includes the beat-to-beat accuracy during rest,” said Jari Nousiainen, Head of Engineering, PulseOn. “Equally important, the minuscule dimensions and energy budget of ST ICs have been a competitive advantage by contributing to the creation of the market’s smallest and most accurate wrist-worn heart-rate monitor.”
The PulseOn heart-rate monitor is now available to order at www.pulseon.com
