Runtastic Selects QuickLogic's Sensor Hub and SenseMe Algorithm Library for Its New Runtastic Moment Wearable

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2015) -

  • QuickLogic's ArcticLink 3 S2 Sensor Hub enables the Runtastic Moment to deliver up to six months of battery life.
  • QuickLogic's comprehensive SenseMe Algorithm Library delivers world-class accuracy while optimizing battery life.

QuickLogic Corporation® (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator of ultra-low power programmable sensor processing solutions, today announced that Runtastic has selected the company's ArcticLink® 3 S2 Sensor Hub and SenseMe™ Algorithm Library for its new and innovative Runtastic Moment watch, which combines traditional timekeeping with modern activity tracking technology. Runtastic is a leading provider of apps, products and services that track and manage health and fitness data.

With more than 140 million downloads and 70 million registered users, Runtastic, which was acquired by adidas Group in August 2015, is a leader in the rapidly expanding mobile health and fitness tracking market. With ten unique designs, which are organized into four collections, the Runtastic Moment leverages this position by integrating 24/7 activity tracking into a fashionable and intuitive analog watch form factor. Through the use of QuickLogic's sensor hub technology, the Runtastic Moment activity tracker delivers up to six months of normal use from only a low-cost watch battery.

The QuickLogic S2 sensor hub was designed from the ground up to address the unique requirements for processing the always-on flow of sensor data that is common today in wearable devices and some leading edge smartphone designs. With its unique patent pending architecture, the QuickLogic S2 sensor hub supports these requirements with an average power consumption of only 75 µW. When combined with QuickLogic's extensive SenseMe Algorithm Library, C-based development tools, and reference design platforms, OEMs can accelerate new product development cycles while minimizing design risks. QuickLogic's clear product roadmap assures OEMs that their design efforts will be extensible to future products.

"In our view, the wearable devices in the market today represent an unnecessary compromise of form, function and ease of use," said Florian Gschwandtner, CEO and co-founder of Runtastic. "By combining the classic elegance of a fashionable analog watch with our world class activity tracking and the ultra-long battery life we get from using QuickLogic's unique products, we believe the Runtastic Moment will be a disruptive force in wearable technology."

"Runtastic's no-compromise design goal is an ideal fit for our sensor hub technology and SenseMe Algorithm Library," said Andy Pease, president and CEO of QuickLogic. "Our S2 sensor hub is five times more power efficient than the microcontroller solutions commonly seen in other wearable products, and the accuracy of our SenseMe Algorithms is indisputably world class."
