The kit was designed to evaluate the lightweight and small (only 10g, 36.6mm) waterproof Movesense motion sensor for health and sports monitoring applications. The Movesense HR+ sensor integrates an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a magnetometer, a heart rate and ECG monitor, a temperature sensor and logging memory. It can process the measured signals locally and connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth Low Energy. An open API lets you develop unique in-device apps for all kinds of use cases for motion sensing and physiology. Also included in the kit are an adjustable wrist band, a clothing clip for fastening the sensor to a belt or a pocket, and a surface mount to lock the sensor onto any hard surface. The surface mount has a unique embedded 1-wire ID chip that is readable through the sensor as it is plugged-in. The sensor has memory for your own applications and can be custom-branded, making it an ideal platform for your own wearable device development.
