Intel-owned Basis introduced last week their new wearable, a device simply called Peak. They describe this gadget as "the ultimate fitness and sleep tracker" that is capable of combining advanced lifestyle and activity tracking with smartwatch capabilities.

Intel Basis Peak packs the following highlights: 

  • Forged aluminum body
  • High contrast touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Customizable soft silicone straps
  • Water resistance up to 5 ATM
  • Advanced sleep analysis, including sleep stages and quality
  • Smartwatch notifications from iOS and Android devices, features a vibration motor for alerts
  • Sensors: heart rate, skin temperature, perspiration, motion
  • Automatic activity tracking, detects walks/runs/bike rides, but also sleep and wake times
  • Battery life up to four days, magnetic charging cradle 

The Basis Peak wearable will hit the US market in November for a price of $199.99 USD. It will go on sale "at select retailers including Amazon, Best Buy and REI as well as mybasis.com" and will reach the UK and Canada later this year as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
