With Tiny New Computer, Intel Pushes for More Bearable Wearables

  • Intel’s new device will include a Bluetooth low-energy radio, motion sensors, and components designed to rapidly and precisely differentiate between different types of physical activity. Krzanich said Curie will run “for extended periods of time” on a coin-size battery and would be available in the second half of the year.
  • To make it clear that Curie is already functional, the company built a simple step-tracking smartphone app to go with the module.
  • As part of its wearables push, Intel has partnered with a number of companies in the fashion and accessories businesses, including Luxottica Group, which is the world’s largest eyeglass maker with brands such as Ray-Ban and Oakley.
