“Basis is excited to introduce Body IQ, a proprietary technology that automatically recognizes and displays your favorite activities, like walking, running and biking, as well as your sleep. Created by the Basis research and development teams, Body IQ ensures you get credit for your efforts in real-time, including your caloric burn, with no need to push buttons, switch modes or tag activities. It also powers Basis’ unique way of automatically determining when you fall asleep and when you wake up. No other device provides this level of intelligence.”
