Galaxy S5 joins race to monitor heart rate
Smart phones are increasingly becoming more than just phones and assuming bigger roles in users` lives.
London: Smart phones are increasingly becoming more than just phones and assuming bigger roles in users` lives.
The latest on the block is Samsung`s new flagship Galaxy S5 smart phone with heart rate monitor that would track your motions and monitor your steps.
The innovation comes after Samsung introduced eye-tracking technology last year to pause your phone when you looked away.
Samsung`s new Gear smart watches would also measure your heart rate and order you to step up the pace when out for a run.
The other tech innovations include a mini-robot printers and smart hearing aids connected to iPhone, The Guardian reported.
A little bot from Zuta Labs looks like a small puck shuffling across a piece of A4 leaving a trail of ink, but will autonomously print a full page in about 40 seconds.
The ReSound Linx hearing aids hooks up to an iPhone and would not only pipe the phone`s audio from calls, music, navigation and videos to the hearing aid, but also allows users to tweak their audio settings.
Bass, treble and volume can be altered and associated with a specific location so that it automatically adjusts to the right settings as a user enters their favourite coffee shop, the report added.
