Tech Watch: Body Monitoring Next Wave In Consumer Electronics

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – 2013 is shaping up to be the year of body measurement – pulse, temperature. activity and even sleep patterns. These factors will all be part of the next big thing in tech, especially mobile tech.

The new Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone that is coming to market in weeks will support an optional wristband that Samsung seems to be positioning as a device that will kill off many of the third party devices like FitBit.

And just announced is a technology from Japan’s Fujitsu that will use the camera in any phone, tablet or laptop to measure your pulse and perhaps other body factors by measuring the change in colors in the face.
