CNET First Look
Basis Peak aims to track your health and heart rate, all the timeA whole new design, improved heart rate tracking, and you can swim with it: the Peak aims to fold sleep, fitness, and even phone notifications into a single super-watch.
[MUSIC] The Basis Peak aims to continually track your fitness and it's waterproof too. I'm Scott Stein and this is a look at the new Basis Peak, a watch that's going to be available in early November. Basis which is now an Intel company is incorporating technologies that not only track your heart rate but do it continuously and aim to coach you as well. The watch is also able to notice when you're moving and on a bicycle. When you're doing various activities, or even tracking water resistance while swimming. The watch is made of guerrilla glass and brushed aluminum. And has a variety of regular watch bands. The previous basis watch had to work more like a watch that had to be paired with a computer. And wasn't meant to give you notifications as smoothly. The new Basis Peak will give you coaching suggestions right on the watch, and pair with Bluetooth 4.0. The Basis Peak can track sleep, including toss and turn, REM, interruptions. And for a heart rate monitor, you not only will it continuously track what's going on to tell you whether to stand or whether you're getting enough exercise. It will also be used for more intense fitness workout regimens as well making this a watch that could be used for hardcore workout people and those who just wanna get a little healthier. It'll work with android or iOS. The [UNKNOWN] is coming soon. We tried one on our wrist, but stay tuned for a full review at CNet. I'm Scott Stein. [MUSIC]
