Hon Hai Precision Industry, aka Foxconn, may be popularly known as the contract manufacturer of the iPhones and iPads. However, the Chinese company recently revealed its own design for a prototype smartwatch that can help improve one’s health.
While it includes many features that Apple’s mythical iWatch is said to have (and are already found on smartwatches like the Pebble), such as the ability to receive notifications and field phone calls, Foxconn’s smartwatch also contains sensors to measure a user’s vital signs, including respiration and heartbeat. It also has the ability to protect users’ health data stored inside with a built-in fingerprint scanner.
Little else is known about Foxconn’s health smartwatch concept, but it’s interesting to note that Foxconn actually has a medical research group that has seemingly turned an interested eye toward this potentially lucrative market.
