    • Tech giant Samsung
      Electronics said it has started selling a new processor that can for the first
      time take multiple measurements on health-focused wearable products,
      Reuters reported.
    •  
    • The new chip can
      measure body fat, skin temperature and heart rate, as well as process the
      information collected by itself, Samsung said in a statement.
    •  
    • To help clients
      accelerate product development using the chip, the firm said it has developed
      “reference platform” products such as a wrist band to demonstrate the
      chip’s capabilities.
    •  
    • The step comes amid a
      push by tech firms to develop and sell wearable products — such as
      smartwatches — that offer a variety of health-related features including data
      collection and monitoring.
    •  
    • Some firms are
      seeking to launch sophisticated products capable of detecting and monitoring
      more serious diseases to tap in to a market that Soreon Research says could be
      worth more than $41 billion in 2020.
    •  
    • Samsung began mass
      production of the new chips in December. It said the processor will power a new
      device to be launched in the first half of 2016, but declined to elaborate on
      the maker of the device.
