I like this market analysis that use MEMS in sports, but looking in the report, I read something that I couldn’t confirm at the present time. It's about the pressure sensor inside MOTOACTV that make heart rate measure. Is this a new version, or is a combined use with headphone SF700/500 that have built-in heart rate monitor, instead use chest belt HRM?

This is a very promising area with sports related applications at the forefront of development. Many of these developments will eventually be adapted for other uses, especially in the health field and should result in big improvements in lifestyle.

I agree with Luis on this one. BLE will play an important role in the future connected sensor devices. My predication is that ANT, ANT+, the current popular protocol for sports/wellness/fitness apps, will be over run simply by the ubiquity offered in smart mobile devices moving to BLE which will act as the communciations hub.

This shows a whole new approach for sports electronics. Now the aim will be to analyze data. I suppose the next question and what will be done with such data? Looks like the ones that are taking a step further is the company that is analyzing the sleep patterns. I think Bluetooth Low Energy has an important role in enabling this kind of applications. It isn't till now that we have a low power consumption wireless connection that will be able to have this kind of devices in the Personal Area Network.

A lot of exciting products. All are aimed at making a sportsperson self equipped to monitor own performance rather than relying on the whims of their coaches.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
