The Basis Peak activity tracker can now sync data with Apple Health and Google Fit, thanks to an update to the Peak mobile app. A new feature, “Basis Peak Playground,” is launching alongside the update, allowing users to get a peek at experimental features and provide feedback.
Basis, which is owned by Intel, also announced Tuesday that a firmware update to the Peak will soon add a stopwatch feature and deliver improved heart-rate tracking to the activity tracker. Improvements to heart-rate detection will reportedly improve monitoring in both normal and active usage situations, such as when walking, running or biking. The firmware update is slated to arrive on May 20.
The Basis Peak activity tracker is capable of tracking steps, distance traveled, calories burned, and tracking of sleep patterns. The wearable also includes a continuous heart-rate sensor, personalized activity goals and smartphone notifications.
The Basis Peak app is available in the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
