Bosch Acknowledged as CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for BMA400 Accelerometer


Wearables to benefit from enhanced battery life

Las Vegas – Bosch Sensortec announced that it has received the title of “CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree” for its new BMA400 ultra-low power accelerometer designed for wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) applications in the Embedded Technologies category.

“The BMA400 offers an unrivalled combination of low power consumption, outstanding performance and advanced features, making it ideal for wearables,” says Dr. Stefan Finkbeiner, CEO of Bosch Sensortec. “I’m delighted that its value has been recognized through this prestigious award.”

The new accelerometer uses ten times less current than existing products whilst still delivering exceptional performance and significantly extends battery lifetime. This is a key feature in always-on wearable devices such as fitness bands, smart clothing, watches and activity trackers. Furthermore, the integrated ultra-low power step counter of the BMA400 makes it easy to add activity recognition into new types of wearables such as regular watches, cutting down development time and effort.
