Sensing solutions for wearables & hearables

Wearables and hearables

With the fast-growing market segments of wearables and hearables such as fitness trackers, end consumers have increasingly demanding requirements. Besides ease of use, one of the most essential aspects for end users is a long battery life of the devices, without having to compromise on always-on applications such as accurate step detection, activity recognition, fitness tracking or calorie counting. By embedding Bosch Sensortec's ultra-low power inertial, environmental and smart sensors, manufacturers of wearable and hearable devices can meet and exceed user requirements and preferences. Features such as gesture and context recognition or position tracking enhance intuitive user interactions and navigation experiences at low power consumption for an optimal user experience, improving users' lifestyle and well-being.
