"Embrace", the wearable version of Empatica's wristbands.

The first wearable to help measure stress, epileptic seizures, activity, and sleep. The Embrace is designed to be a gorgeous watch and a medical quality devi...
Olivier Janin's insight:

Empatica released its Indiegogo campaign a few days ago and they already fulfill their $100K objective. The Milan-Boston based company intend to launch Embrace a mass-market wristband on July 2015.


The value proposal of the Embrace is to offer a tracker that can measure your stressyour activity and your sleep.

It also promises to help people detect epileptic seizures to take the appropriate disposition.

In my opinion, this double positioning is interesting but there is a risk to blur the key value to the mass-market. I also think that not embedding HR makes the product less compelling for Medical fields.


The SRP is set at $199. For that price, you will get your Embrace Wristband + 2 apps (Empatica Alert, Empatica Mate). The Embrace embeds sensors that track Electrodermal Activity (EDA)  which calculates emotions arousal.. 

Accelerometer and Gyroscope to track Activities and Sleep.

No Heart-Rate sensor on Embrace. 

It allowed the Industrial Design to be less constrained by the locking system. The form is a easy slap made off leather. The clock IHM is made of a led pattern on the face of the Watch. Not obvious for the user, a type of mental friction I would avoid. 

The Embrace is coming with 2 sizes and a set of 5 colors.


I personally use the Empatica E3 wristband to collect datas for my explorations on emotions and affective computing. The HW is very reliable and the datas collection very accurate and in term of Timeframe.


Empatica partnered at MIT Medialab with Rosalind Picard's Affective Computing lab and with Orrin Devinsky, Director at NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.

Basis, the SF start-up which released its well-manufactured and accurate Watch (B1) in 2013, has been bought by Intel last Spring. They now release their 2nd iteration which seems to even better integrate more powerful components.  Owning a Basis B1, I can tell you how the automatic workout detection (walking, biking, running, sleeping) is a key feature compared to other trackers on the market.

Misfit launches its Flash version, a $50 Fitness Tracker That Packs a Punch

Misfit launches its Flash version, a $50 Fitness Tracker That Packs a Punch | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
We first wrote about Misfit Wearables' first activity tracker, the Misfit Shine, back in 2012. Not only did it look absolutely gorgeous, but it never needed charging, and it was waterproof. It had some flaws, but for 100 bucks, it wasn't bad. Well Misfit's second wearable, the Flash, is here, and it just undercut its own product by $50
Olivier Janin's insight:

I own a Misfit Shine, the 1st version of Misfit wearable activity tracker. I appreciate the fashion of the device, and the bright and easy UX (especially the BT Sync process with the device and my iPhone which has a little magic). The interface and the dashboard are a little to simplistic for me. But this is easy to scale up.

Olivier Janin's insight:

The new UP3 from Jawbone is the high-end new iteration of the brand. Key new features include :

  • Heart-rate sensing through bio-impedance technology (breakthrough on the market)
  • Activity automatic detection (Jawbone filled the gap with Basis on this topic)


Jawbone decidedly not positionned its new products on the SmartWatch race. This could at the end be a good scenario.
