Reference design for “the world's most accurate” smartband unveiled
Whoa, yet another wearable got announced at CES 2014! Well, not exactly... Movea, a company that specializes in motion tracking equipment, has unveiled its own reference design for a wearable smartband, called the G-Series. This means that you shouldn't expect the Movea G-Series to hit the shelves before an actual manufacturer gets involved with doing such fitnessband. The reference design of the smartband is developed in collaboration with Texas Instruments and Xm-Squared, a design company.

What sets the wristband apart from the ever-growing competition? Simply put, precision. The Movea G-Series is touted as the most accurate wristband in the world.

The Movea G-Series will count every step you take, and it will count it good. Movea touts that the smartband made the least mistakes while counting the amount of steps taken in comparison with similar wristbands. What's more, just like the recently announced Garmin Vivofit and Razer Nabu, the G-Series will monitor your sleep patterns. The Movea conceptual wearable is said to closely mimic results taken by a polysomnography tool, which are generally used in hospitals.

Furthermore, the fitness band will be able to detect your current posture. According to the company, the gadget achieved a 95% success rate at the detection of the current standind position.

Who knows if the Movea G-Series will actually live up to its claims?

If it is so precise, then shouldn't it be able to be used as a gesture device? As in, if connected to your tv you could make gestures with your hand to control it. How about make a gesture to turn on your Hue light bulbs? If these bands could start doing stuff like that, then I'd be interested. A glorified step counter isn't that interesting to me.

This device seems to be quiet handy and reliable.So instead of wearing a watch,people will may wear this smartband and it will be a stylish throw.
