Biosensing (By EDA) is using ElectroDermal Activity or skin conductance to interpret stress. The high dynamic range of skin conductance provides much more detailed insights into current levels of stress, offering awareness and insight into your cognitive zone - something a heart rate based measurement can never do.
In today's distracted world, it's increasingly difficult to stay attuned to your body's signals, particularly around over- or under-stimulation.
NOWATCH’s prediction algorithm can determine your cognitive state or state of mind up to 60 minutes in advance.
The prediction, will give the user time to change his or her behavior for example by taking a walk, taking a break, or by doing some breathing exercises to better cope with the situation.
NOWATCH uses an infrared light photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor which reaches deeper than the green light LEDs found in most other wearables. We use this sensor for Heart Rate, Sleep, Activity and other insights.
With the PPG sensor we measure a range of factors around your heart rate (HR). Including resting HR and live HR. This serves as an excellent marker of individual changes in cardiovascular fitness.
For activity we look at energy expenditure. This is the amount of metabolic calories needed to sustain basal metabolic rate, thermoregulation, digestion as well as physical activity.
Measurements focus on accurate estimation of energy expenditure based on combining heart rate (HR) and wrist accelerometer output.
Regular temperature can not be measured at the wrist, therefore we use temperature deviation to detect significant difference up from 0.1 degrees celsius.
The temperature sensor can also help keeping track of the female cycle. After building up knowledge of the wearer we can detect small changes in the length of the cycle.
Magnetically interchange the central disc of your NOWATCH to suit your style and mood. Easily switch between beautifully machined stainless steel discs, and prehistoric stones which have existed for tens of thousands of years.
