A new device was just spotted on Bluetooth SIG and FCC certification pages. There are very few information about this new device that is called S-Circle. These listings also gave the model name, which is EI-AN900A. It is described as a n activity tracker.
The interesting fact is that S-Circle has the same as Samsung S-Band: EI. We know that Samsung is keen to promote it’s premium smartwatches, but in the same time they promote cheaper wearables that can be synced with S Health software found on Galaxy S smartphones. Maybe here fits in S-Circle?!
The new S-Circle includes Bluetooth Low Energy and with Samsung launching it’s new life of wearable devices, it feels like S-Circle is close to devices as S Band or Heart Rate Monitor Band, devices which were launched with the old S4 line.
Another possibility is that S-Circle is a combination between the activity tracking feature from S Band and from the heart rate sensor that is found on the new Galaxy S5 smartphone. If all this is right, S Circle will be an interesting addition to S Health app.
Perhaps 2014 is the year of wearable devices, but how much interest is there on the market for these kind of devices? Would you buy one?
