Making a good fitness and sleep tracker even better: Basis Peak

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, June 11, 2015

Making a good fitness and sleep tracker even better.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   The Basis Peak…continues to try to distinguish itself from the pack in the very crowded fitness watch category.   It can now share data with both Apple Health and Google Fit, has a new stopwatch function and improved heart rate detection.   There’s also a new leather band available and a Titanium Edition as well.  Director of Marketing Damon Miller…

“We consider it the ultimate fitness and sleep tracker, cause it combines comprehensive fitness and sleep tracking with 24-7 heart rate, including during exercise as well as smartphone notifications like calls, texts and meetings.”

There have been some connectivity glitches with the latest version of Android, but those are being solved.  The Basis Peak is one of the more comfortable devices on the market and unlike some competitors is water resistant and has sensors for skin temperature and perspiration too.   The company, by the way, is owned by Intel.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
