The sensor can run applications that you develop. It is the first commercially available, consumer-level product that offers a managed API for 3rd party apps in microcontroller environment. This is the first time that an app ecosystem comes to small sensor devices similarly to mobile phones. You can process the measured data inside the sensor. Instead of streaming raw data to phone the sensor sends calculated results, reducing tremendously the amount of radio communication and allowing standalone use cases. This makes Movesense much more versatile, power efficient and lightweight than other IoT sensors.
REST API. Movesense is the first commercially available microcontroller based device that provides a REST API, conceptually familiar to developers from web apps. This simplifies app development dramatically. You can build your own services on top of the API and use these services as part of your app equally to the ones offered by the firmware. The REST API is symmetric, meaning that the sensor can use the services that your phone offers and vice versa.
Ready to use in tough conditions. Movesense sensor is not just a circuit board like many other IoT sensors. It is a complete product, ready to ship & use with your functionality and your logo. It’s shock and water resistant, tiny and lightweight, extremely power efficient, tested according to tough Suunto procedures, and certified with relevant radio approvals. The sensor is in mass production, manufactured by Suunto in Finland and is available to any interested company or developer in any quantity.
Movesense connector. If you want to make a piece of apparel or equipment ready for smart features and digital connection, you have two options: Either you start a project from scratch, embedding electronics into apparel or gear. OR, you take the Movesense connector, attach it to the piece that you want to make smart, plug a Movesense sensor to it and, off you go! What’s even better, when the network of companies and developers working on Movesense based projects publish new sensor concepts, you can just offer your product as a base to attach the sensor. All you need is to equip your kit with the connector.
