Basis in the news

Basis, the company that makes the health tracking smartwatch I looked at recently, has been in the news this week. Apparently, Intel found the company as interesting as I found their Health Tracker smartwatch to be. According to a number of articles like this one, Intel won the bidding war for the company. While the rumored $100M is nothing compared to the $19B Facebook paid for WhatsApp, it does indicate how the area of wearables is heating up. None of the big players want to get left out of what promises to be the Next Big Thing.

I’m looking forward to seeing where Intel will take the technology. I love the prospect of more and better watches and other wearables to play with!
