Basis have updated their Basis Peak design and we think that it is an upgrade in every conceivable way, from the solid design update and fantastic responsive Gorilla Glass display to the hardware responsible for data collection. The whole point of Basis from the beginning has been to accomplish the most accurate picture of user’s health with hardware that is constantly monitoring.
The device itself is water-resistant up to 5 ATM, and it recharges through a magnetic charger. For an average user, the battery should be able to last up to 4 days. It automatically tracks walks, runs and rides, as well as heart rate during exercise, and movement during sleep with its latest software update. This is a huge upgrade because users no longer have to prompt for sleep mode or workout mode, and the app will still be able to accurately collect data depending on what the user’s activity is.
The app supports both iOS and Android. However, as of now, the Basis Peak will not support any third-party app notifications at this time, but it could be added in the future.
The Basis Peak is currently available directly from Basis for $199.99. It’s available in matte black, or brushed metal and white.
