Congrats to AmpStrip (from WLSA member company Fitlinxx) for wining a best of CES award for best start up.
“We’ve seen fitness trackers in all shapes and forms, but AmpStrip’s Band-Aid-like sticker still managed to impress us. Together with a disposable sticky pad, it sits on your chest and monitors your heart rate, steps and other vitals. Basically, it offers most of the benefits of advanced wearable health trackers without getting in the way. It’s also waterproof, so it should be ideal for running a grueling triathlon. While it’s only in beta right now, AmpStrip expects to begin production this summer. –Devindra Hardawar, Senior Editor”
