Apple Watch lets you send your heartbeat to your friends, but this wearable actually does something useful with it.
If you’re like me, you have more passwords and logins than you can remember. If you’re on top of things, you’ve got them written down. If you’re proactive, you’ve got them in one of the many password keepers available for purchase or download. But if you have Nymi, you don’t need any of that because Nymi uses your heartbeat to verify your credentials.
This little band uses your ECG (electrocardiogram) to authenticate your identity through its sensor. Since everyone has a unique ECG, it can be used instead of a password to unlock, well, anything. The Nymi band sends signals to your devices via Bluetooth, opening your email, bank account, and even car door, in a heartbeat.
