The most popular search engine in the world, Google has announced that it’s working on a new health wearable wrist band.
The device was designed and developed by Google X Division, which is Google’s secret lab division responsible for other innovative products like Google’s self driving car and Google Glass.
According to Google, the new wearable device not only measures common vitals like body temperature and heart rate, it also measures external information like sun exposure.
Google said that when it will be released, the new health wearable will not be for sale to the general public because it was designed for medical professionals to use it in their clinical trials.
The developers said of the new health wearable that it will help doctors to monitor the health of their patients, even when they are not in the hospital.
Some believe that the issue with most health wearable devices available on the market at the moment are not very accurate, and most of the time the patients do not know the exact details of their health problem.
But with Google’s new health wearable wrist band, the doctors will be able to monitor their patients’ vitals and the device will alert them in case a problem arises.
Google’s new health device looks a lot like Apple Watch but a little less sophisticated and not as refined.
However, this is not an issue, because the new wearable was not designed as a fashion accessory but as a health monitoring device.
Andy Conrad, who works for Google X and was part of the team who developed the new device, said that they designed it to be an efficient medical device meant to help patients monitor their vitals and for doctors to use it in their clinical trials.
Google has said the device is still at an experimental stage and that scientists and drug experts are collaborating in order to create the best product that will assist medical professionals.
The giant web search engine said that it will be looking to have it approved for medical use in the United States and Europe.
Jacquelyn Miller, spokeswoman for Google, said that the trials for the health wearable wristband will begin during this summer.
Google said that it will be using online and mobile internet portals for storing their data:
“The ability to securely store, analyze, and interpret the data from this device is as important as the technology itself.”
