Quarter-Sized Wearable Development Kit Supports OTA Coding

Launching as a Kickstarter campaign, the ZWear wearable platform promises to enable manufacturers, developers, and individuals to create unique wearable devices with its OTA coding. ZWear is the size of a quarter, includes a three-axis accelerometer, and is GPS ready. Even with the rechargeable battery, ZWear can fit comfortably inside a watch body. The inclusion of Bluetooth 4.0 BLE technology ensures that ZWear can communicate with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, including iPhones. The concept behind this Bluetooth BLE 4.0, accelerometer and GPS-ready device is to create a platform to speed up the development of wearable devices. The company intends to offer different configurations for its wearable platform. The standard ZWear kit will contain the main board, accessories, and a lithium-polymer battery. The prime kit will add the GPS module while the professional kit will include USB debugger. For more information, visit http://zwear.org/zwear-platform
