October 5, 2023, Austin, TX – Noise, a globally leading smart wearable brand, and Ambiq®, a recognized pioneer of ultra-low-power semiconductor solutions that deliver a multifold increase in energy efficiency, are pleased to announce their partnership for the synergetic launch of the Luna Ring by Noise featuring Ambiq’s Apollo3 Blue Plus systems-on-chip (SoC).
Meticulously designed to augment the smart wearable experience and users’ lifestyle patterns effectively, Luna Ring fosters cognitive functioning by delivering across three core scores – Sleep, Readiness, and Activity. Power consumption was a major design consideration by Noise for Luna Ring as they aimed to create a device that seamlessly integrates into users’ lives and helps enhance lifestyle by improving daily performance in a minimalist yet meaningful form factor. Renowned for its energy efficiency, compute performance, and robust storage, Ambiq’s Apollo3 Blue Plus SoC became the ideal solution to deliver the ultimate user experience.
The Luna Ring is crafted to enhance users’ daily performance effectively, offering a high-quality lifestyle with precise data tracking and processing this information into valuable insights. An industry-first, the Luna Ring can track over 70 metrics, making it one of the most powerful devices to track well-being in the smart ring category. Catalyzing a transformative lifestyle shift, the Luna Ring is an ideal ally equipped with advanced sensors (PPG, skin temperature, and 3-axis accelerometer) and personalized nudges. The temperature sensor further tracks body variations influenced by diet and exercise. The state-of-the-art wearable comes in an ultra-lightweight 3mm band width and is made of fighter-jet grade titanium featuring a diamond-like coating and pointing edge for guided wearing.
Apollo3 Blue Plus is the industry’s most popular energy-efficient system-on-chip for smart wearables. Built on the proprietary Subthreshold Power-Optimized Technology (SPOT®) platform, Ambiq’s 3rd generation SoC comes with an integrated Bluetooth® Low Energy 5.1 for connectivity, turboSPOT® for accelerated computing up to 96 MHz, and secureSPOT® for additional security. The Apollo3 Blue Plus has enabled millions of IoT endpoint products for exceptional user experience.
“People are empowered to monitor and advocate for their health more than ever before,” said Fumihide Esaka, Chairman and CEO at Ambiq. “The Luna Ring by Noise, enabled with Ambiq’s Apollo3 Blue Plus, demonstrates that smart wearable devices can be transformative while not compromising performance due to power constraints.”
