CCMOSS (Cambridge, UK & Premstaetten, Austria) has disclosed that Chinese wearable device manufacturer HiCling is using its ultra-low power gas sensors to enable the new Cling VOC smart fitness wristband, exploiting the CCS801 and CCS803 sensors’ small size, high accuracy and very low power consumption.

The CCS801 gas sensor can detect low levels of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) typically found indoors. In the Cling VOC wristband, these VOC measurements are used to provide an indication of air quality on the band’s display. The wristband can also provide alcohol breath analysis on demand, as the integrated CCS803 gas sensor with algorithms is sensitive to ethanol on human breath. The small footprint and low profile of the CCS8xx family of gas sensors mean that they can easily be accommodated in the slim enclosure of the Cling VOC, which is intended to appeal to fashion-conscious consumers.

ams’ Paul Wilson, Senior Product Marketing Manager for environmental sensors, comments, “CO2 levels, offensive odours, smoke and other VOCs can have a strong impact on people’s comfort, productivity, quality of life and wellbeing, so it is vital we are able to measure these VOCs.”

HiCling adds that it selected the sensors as, “ams group company CCS has developed the world’s smallest and lowest-power MOX gas sensors on the market”, according to Richard Chen, CEO.


The Cling VOC Smart Fitness Wristband will be available to buy online from Amazon, Tmall, and JD. For more info on HiCling products visit
