Apple continues to show interest for purchasing health related companies for the development of its upcoming iWatch, as it is looking to bid for Basis-a health tracker manufacturer.
Basis, the company which constructs the Basis Health fitness tracker, is Apple’s latest interest. Basis is known for developing health tracking components with outstanding features. According to Mac Rumors, its latest model of tracker is able to monitor a number of significant matters, including heart rate, sleep activity, perspiration level and skin temperature.
Though it hasn’t been revealed about the extent of Apple’s interest, the company’s eagerness about the Basis is very logical. In the previous, it was reported that Apple is going to equip the iWatch with optical sensors in order to calculate different aspects of the human body. As Basis is experienced in developing tracking devices with similar features, the tech giant can combine both the outstanding options which might help the iWatch to turn out as the ultimate health tracking device.
