Making the Basis Band even better

Techstination feature for Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Making the Basis band even better.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Basis Science is the maker of one of the top fitness watches on the market…designed to monitor your heart rate, movement, perspiration and sleep pattern.   And the latest update includes deeper analysis of your sleep than ever before.   CEO Jef Holove…

We developed the algorithms to see all these things internally but we validated these algorithms with external experts, sleep experts, university labs, so that we can really be sure that we are genuinely seeing your REM cycles, your deep cycles.  And it’s really exciting.   You know health is made up not just of your fitness, but everything that happens in your day and we tend to overlook the importance of sleep to your overall health.   And that’s most because there’s never been a deep way of really seeing your sleep.  Well, now we can do it in something that you can wear on your wrist.”

The new Carbon Steel edition from Basis sells for about two hundred dollars.   The original B1 is now twenty dollars less. There’s more info at  You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
