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. Parts Search

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
