Amer Sports and Symbio start collaboration to develop Movesense innovations. As a preferred technology partner of Amer Sports, Symbio develops applications and services utilizing Movesense sensor technology for third parties.
Movesense, based on sensor technology and open APIs, measures sports performance (speed, trajectory, distance). Applications built based on Movesense can turn the collected data into valuable insight for the user. With help of intelligent measurement data consumers can gain better understanding of their daily sports activities and modify their training based on the collected data.
Symbio and Amer Sports offer companies the ability to quickly take Movesense technology into use, and to enable their existing sports gear to become smarter and better connected with cloud services and applications. Symbio also accelerates the creation of completely new sport innovations utilizing Movesense motion measurement from idea to application, and cloud solution to product life-cycle maintenance.
“Symbio was selected as the first partner for the Movesense ecosystem, because of their global presence and strong competence to develop ideas to products. To us this partnership is an opportunity to quickly bring Movesense sensor technology to different industries,“ says Heikki Norta, President, Amer Sports Connected Devices and Services.
“We are thrilled to announce this global partnership with Amer Sports. This collaboration will strengthen Symbio’s wearable innovation strategy and enable us to co-create together with Amer Sports truly unique sport experiences,”says Brian Crowley, Symbio CEO.
Amer Sports will announce the Movesense platform in Slush 2016.
