Dialog Semiconductor Provides Bluetooth Low Energy Connectivity Solution for Samsung Galaxy Fit
The new Samsung Galaxy Fit is one of the first wearable devices on the market to adopt the Dialog DA14697, enabling seamless connectivity and extended battery life.
Beijing, China, July 24, 2019 – Dialog Semiconductor, Inc. (Deutsche Stock Exchange: DLG), a provider of highly integrated power management, AC/DC power conversion, charging and Bluetooth low energy technology, announced today that Samsung is at its latest The PDA's Wireless Microcontroller Unit (MCU) DA14697 is used in the wearable device Galaxy Fit.
Galaxy Fit is a slim and stylish fitness tracker that helps users achieve their fitness goals with intuitive tracking. It tracks a range of movements and provides users with more advanced sleep analysis and stress management techniques to monitor their health around the clock.
The Samsung Galaxy Fit bracelet is designed to make it easy for users to interact with them in action, which means it needs to be synchronized with the smartphone so that users can receive alerts and messages. In addition, because the device is simple and stylish, users can comfortably wear for a week in two charging rooms, so a solution that supports seamless connection with the smartphone is needed, while saving power to extend battery life. After comprehensive consideration and screening, Samsung chose DA14697. The DA14697 is part of Dialog Semiconductor's newest SmartBondTM DA1469x wireless MCU family and is ideal for wearable devices.
