Foxconn eyes smart watches with wristband technology

Manufacturing giant Foxconn Technology Group also wants to ride the upcoming wave of wearable tech, and has unveiled a wristband that can monitor a user’s health and sync with a smartphone.

When worn, the wristband can monitor a user’s blood pressure, heart rate, and even diagnose the person’s mood, said Foxconn CEO Terry Gou at the company’s annual shareholder’s meeting on Wednesday. Data on the wristband can then be displayed on the user’s smartphone.

A demo of the wristband showed that after three minutes of use, the device will grade the user’s health and diagnose the person’s mood. The data collected can also be used to offer recommendations on how to improve users’ health, or be shared on social networks or with health care providers.
