A Wireless Low-Power Wearable Sensor Platform

Posted April 23, 2015

MetaWear is a mini Wireless Low-Power Wearable Sensor Platform that is programmed and controlled using your Smartphone. It connects to a smart phone, tablet, or a Bluetooth Low Energy device and logs or streams 6 axis of motion data and measures acceleration, rotation, orientation, angular velocity, pressure, altitude, and temperature using an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a barometer, and a high precision temperature sensor.


MetaWear enables to gather motion data, you can analyze your football throw to find out how high and how fast you kicked that ball. You can analyze your favorite skateboard trick. This is the projects page for inspiration.

You can embed the it into your ski and see how hard you shred the mountain


You can export data at the touch of a button and analyze it. It shows you data and helps you process it with embedded filters.

The built in analytics and filters, such as low pass filters to get rid of noise, allows you to get the data that matters.
