It’s that time of year again! A few of us are here in Las Vegas getting ready for CES, the biggest consumer electronics show of the year, while the remainder of the team is working hard on getting our orders fulfilled.
We continue to work towards our mission of making it as easy as possible for you to get and stay healthy. Many of you have asked about our progress on mobile apps. We are excited to share an overview and first look of our Android mobile app. It’s designed to seamlessly extend the Basis experience to your smartphone allowing you to easily sync your data, check your progress on your habits, and dive deeper into your activities when you choose to. Here are a few highlights:
Hassle-Free Automatic Syncing
Your Basis band is already Bluetooth-enabled and our Android app will allow you to sync data from your Basis Band wirelessly to your dashboard. You can have it sync automatically in the background and on-demand so your dashboard, be it on the web or the app, is always up-to-date with your most recent data.
Track Your Progress Anywhere and Anytime
You can view all of your habits and insights right on your Android smartphone. You can also dive deeper into each auto-classified sleep and activity event, including charts of your heart rate patterns and calories burned.
Mobile notifications alert you when you reach your daily targets and weekly goals. They also provide a gentle nudge on days when you need to get going to hit your weekly goal.
We have focused on an Android app for our initial release given its large and growing user base. The initial version for select Android smartphones will be available by the end of March, followed by updated versions supporting additional phones. An iOS version for iPhones is also in the works and we will announce the availability when it launches.
We will be giving demonstrations of the Android app at CES at Booth 26905 in South Hall 2 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Hope to see you there!
