Avec i'msport, l'exercice physique devient intelligent (« Fitness goes Smart »). Vous pouvez utiliser le Bluetooth pour connecter votre i'm Watch à un capteur de fréquence cardiaque Zephyr et ainsi surveiller votre rythme cardiaque, régler la durée de votre entraînement et chronométrer vos exercices avec une appli spéciale. C'est pourquoi nous pouvons dire qu'i'm Watch n'est pas seulement une montre du sport, mais également un outil de fitness ! Les propriétés remarquables d'i'm Watch en font une montre adaptée sur route et hors route, à vélo, sur votre tapis de course ou sur toute autre surface. i'm Watch sera votre coach sportif, qui habillera votre poignet et gardera un suivi de vos résultats. i'm Watch : WEAR it and be FIT! (portez-la et gardez la forme !) À l'occasion de ce lancement, les lecteurs pourront se servir du code promotionnel d'une valeur de 50 € à utiliser dans la boutique en ligne http://www.imsmart.com/en (code promotionnel : mwc2013 - valable jusqu'au 4 mars 2013)

Le nouveau système d'exploitation, i'm Droid 2.1, représente une autre révolution, au même titre que le lancement de la pile Bluetooth, conçue pour une connexion intuitive et rapide de votre i'm Watch avec votre smartphone, ainsi que pour une stabilité accrue de la connexion. Simultanément, une nouvelle mise à niveau pour l'appareil mains libres sera lancée afin d'optimiser la qualité de tous les appels et les performances de votre appareil mains libres dans n'importe quel environnement.

« Après un peu plus d'un mois suite au salon CES, une nouvelle évolution d'i'm Watch démontre que nos activités de R&D se poursuivent de manière très intensive », ont déclaré Manuel Zanella et Massimiliano Bertolini, inventeurs de la smartwatch. « Nous avons lancé la version 2.1 du système d'exploitation, offrant de nombreuses innovations logicielles qui rendent i'm Watch encore plus polyvalente. L'une d'entre elles est une nouvelle application impressionnante liée au domaine du sport et portant le nom i'msport. Pour la toute première fois, les utilisateurs seront en mesure de surveiller leur exercice pendant qu'ils parlent au téléphone, écoutent de la musique, lisent des textos ou tweetent, tout cela avec un seul appareil dont le 'noyau Android' a été personnalisé par nos techniciens. Cette nouvelle appli vise à faire d'i'm Watch un appareil de sport 'professionnel' et, surtout, à encourager un bouleversement complet de la vision traditionnelle de la montre, en fusionnant le concept de technologie portable pour le quotidien et celui de montre de sport. Pourquoi avoir deux appareils lorsqu'un seul suffit ? ».

Un grand succès entoure également la présentation en Europe d'un nouveau produit : i'm Here. Il s'agit d'un GPS intelligent qui détecte votre emplacement ainsi que celui d'autres personnes. Mais surtout, il vous permet d'envoyer un appel de détresse SOS à la simple pression d'un bouton d'alerte, pouvant sauver des vies en cas d'urgence.

Tous les détails sont disponibles dans la boutique en ligne du site Web http://www.imsmart.com, sur Facebook ou dans l'espace presse.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
