Basis Offers A Wearable That You Will Actually Want To Wear

There are way too many devices out there today that are offering features that are either not that useful, too confusing for most to use, or that just don’t make sense. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still waiting for the game system that helps me teleport to the nearest Chipotle to grab a burrito. Sadly, until that day comes, I’ll just have to deal with what I have currently. But I digress. The point I’m trying to make here is pertaining to the whimsical world of wearables. You know, those things that usually have to always be connected to your phone, or are just fancy pedometers with a cool display and need charging? Their is no real need to wear them yet. There is nothing ultra spectacular about them yet, mainly due to the fact that almost all of the “smartwatches” still need to be connected to a phone. Well Basis has a wearable that might change the game up a bit.

Many of the smartwatches out there today offer some type of fitness app or quality to themselves. The only problem is that it might not be as detailed as some of the other fitness junkies out there may want. At first you may think “beggars can’t be choosers”, but the good part is that now you can be. The new Basis Carbon Steel Edition isn’t necessarily a “smartwatch”, but more of a fitness wearable that allows users a closer look at what exactly is going on in their body during their daily activities. Trying to keep up with your health is not necessarily an easy task today, especially when we are surrounded by McDonald’s restaurants every ten feet. Making yourself more fit requires some motivation at times, and that is what this new wearable is attempting to give you.

You may be wondering what all the wearable is tracking as you are using it. Well, it’s not far off from a video game. By this I mean I mean it tracks a lot of your movements and can even translate it into different movements. If you’ve ever played a video game, you may be aware that the game tracks some statistics, such as how far you have run during the game, how many steps you’ve taken, and how many miles/kilometers that would translate to. The back of the watch has sensors that will not only track your calories burned and steps taken, but also keep track of what exactly is happening inside your body while you run, walk, bike, and even sleep.

The device can even be coupled with an app for your Android or iOS mobile device to give you access to even more health information. The app is free and can offer a insight into your daily activities, such as the amount of time spent doing a physical activity and at what point in the day you were doing it. The app also comes with a feature called “Habits”, which aims to help you break certain habits that might not be particularly healthy. Do you find you aren’t getting enough sleep, or are sitting around too much? You can set a goal with the Basis and the app won’t let you set another goal until you reach the one you are currently on. Definitely not a bad way to set up some self-motivation.

The wearable is currently retailing for $200, so definitely not a bad price. If you aren’t sure about how wearables work yet, there is never any harm in renting one before you commit to buying, just to get the feeling for one and even see if you will be in the market for one.
