Movesense develops and maintains an open development platform for health and sports wearables. The company's mission is to help developers and innovators to turn their wearable sensor ideas into market-ready products quickly and cost-efficiently by reducing the required investment and shortening the time to market for new wearables.
Movesense originated from an internal concept project by the Finnish sports watch manufacturer Suunto. It proved to be so versatile that the company offered it to third parties for the implementation of new product concepts.
Movesense development started in 2015 and the platform was published in the end of 2016. Developers received the first beta versions of the sensor in the spring of 2017 and the 1.0 firmware for the sensor was published in 2017.
Movesense is now used by healthcare and sports technology innovators across the globe in applications ranging from cardiology to orthopaedics and various sports monitoring solutions for all performance levels.
On October 1st 2021, Movesense became an independent company and continues to build the development platform for both medical and sports use in close collaboration with Suunto.
