first_imgNordic has announced that Polar, a Finland-based wearable sports and fitness technology pioneer, has selected Nordic’s nRF52832 Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) System-on-Chip (SoC) to provide wireless connectivity for its new ‘Polar Vantage V’ and ‘Polar Vantage M’ multisport watches.The waterproof Polar Vantage V and Polar Vantage M are customizable to over 130 sport profiles and feature an ‘always-on’ 240×240 pixel color touchscreen display, GPS tracking, as well as Polar Precision Prime heart rate technology. Precision Prime employs a 3D accelerometer, electrode sensors to measure sensor-skin contact, as well as nine optical LEDs that deploy two colors and wavelengths of light to measure heart rate data from blood vessels in different layers of the skin. According to Polar this sensor fusion technology and its proprietary algorithm combine to provide highly accurate and reliable wrist-based heart rate readings. The Polar Vantage V also offers a barometric altitude sensor.Both watches feature Polar’s Training Load Pro technology, combining cardiovascular load, muscular load, and perceived load (an athlete’s perception of the training effort) data, to measure the balance between strain and tolerance and help individuals recognize their personal limits while informing them when they are overtraining, undertraining, or are realizing a good balance. In addition, the Polar Vantage V also offers Recovery Pro offering personalized training guidance based on intelligent analysis of heart rate variability (HRV)-integrated orthostatic test results over time to help recovery and avoid injury, as well as ‘Running Power’, unifying multiple running metrics into one easy-to-understand number that represents the power produced during running without the need for external sensors.Using low latency Bluetooth LE wireless connectivity provided by the Nordic SoC, this data is synced to the user’s Bluetooth 4.0 (and later) smartphone or tablet, where they can view detailed training and activity statistics via the iOS- and Android-compatible Polar Flow app. From the app, users can also configure the watches’ settings and functions.Supported by the ultra-low power consumption of the Nordic SoC, the Polar Vantage V’s 320 mAh Li-Poly battery can provide up to 40 hours of continuous training between recharge, while the Polar Vantage M’s 230 mAh Li-Poly battery offers 30 hours of continuous training between recharge, even with the always-on heart rate monitor and high resolution one second sampling GPS-tracking enabled. According to Polar, the battery life of the Vantage V and Vantage M is the longest ‘high resolution’ sports watch battery life on the market.Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC is a powerful multiprotocol SoC ideally suited for Bluetooth LE and 2.4 GHz ultra-low-power wireless applications. The nRF52832 combines a 64 MHz, 32-bit Arm Cortex M4F processor with a 2.4 GHz multiprotocol radio (supporting Bluetooth 5, ANT, and proprietary 2.4 GHz RF software) featuring -96 dB RX sensitivity, with 512 kB Flash memory and 64 kB RAM.The SoC is supplied with Nordic’s S132 SoftDevice, a Bluetooth 5-certified RF software protocol stack for building advanced Bluetooth LE applications. The S132 SoftDevice features Central, Peripheral, Broadcaster and Observer Bluetooth LE roles, supports up to twenty connections, and enables concurrent role operation. Nordic’s unique software architecture provides a clear separation between the RF protocol software and the developer’s application code, easing product development.last_img read more

first_imgThe Ravens failed to make the postseason for the fourth time in five years, but where exactly did their players stack up across the NFL in 2017?Whether it’s discussing the Pro Bowl or picking postseason awards, media and fans spend much time debating where players rank at each position, but few put in the necessary time and effort to watch every player on every team extensively enough to develop any kind of an authoritative opinion.Truthfully, how many times did you closely watch the offensive line of the Los Angeles Chargers this season? What about the Detroit Lions linebackers or the Miami Dolphins cornerbacks?That’s why I can appreciate projects such as Bleacher Report’s NFL1000 and the grading efforts of Pro Football Focus. Of course, neither should be viewed as the gospel of evaluation and each is subjective, but I respect the exhaustive effort to grade players across the league when so many of us watch only one team or one division on any kind of a consistent basis. It’s important to note that the following PFF rankings are where the player stood at the conclusion of the regular season.Below is a look at where Ravens running backs ranked across the league, according to those outlets:Alex Collins2017 offensive snap count: 378 NFL1000 ranking: 12th PFF ranking: 5th Skinny: The 23-year-old was a terrific addition for a below-average offense and finished ninth in yards per carry, but his 2.96 yards per attempt average over the last three games and a slight 210-pound frame make it fair to take pause before assuming he’ll automatically thrive with a bigger workload next season.Buck Allen2017 offensive snap count: 466NFL1000 ranking: 46thPFF ranking: 33rdSkinny: The 2015 fourth-round pick rebounded from a disappointing 2016 to emerge as a solid No. 2 back by averaging 3.9 yards per carry and scoring six touchdowns. Allen caught 46 passes, but his 5.4 yards per catch ranked last in the NFL among qualified players and reflected his limited elusiveness.Danny Woodhead 2017 offensive snap count: 157 NFL1000 ranking: 55thPFF ranking: n/a Skinny: A significant hamstring injury cost Woodhead nearly nine full games, and he has now appeared in only 29 contests over his last four seasons because of injuries. Though the 32-year-old returned in November, he averaged just 6.1 yards per catch and didn’t eclipse 50 yards from scrimmage once.Terrance West2017 offensive snap count: 66NFL1000 ranking: n/aPFF ranking: n/a Skinny: A calf injury suffered in Oakland in Week 5 cost West multiple games, but the writing was on the wall when he was healthy again as Collins had secured the starting gig and Allen was the more versatile backup. The Baltimore native will be an unrestricted free agent and is unlikely to return.2018 positional outlookWith Collins under team control for two more years and Allen still having a year remaining on his rookie deal, the running back position is clearly in better shape than the other skill spots on this offense. The wild card is Kenneth Dixon, who will be coming off a major knee injury and two drug-related suspensions. A healthy and motivated Dixon paired with Collins would be intriguing, but the latter showed enough success in Greg Roman’s blocking schemes to have confidence in him entering 2018 as the starter, especially with guards Marshal Yanda and Alex Lewis back in the fold. Woodhead remains under contract, but Baltimore could save $1.8 million in salary cap space by releasing him. The Ravens should keep their eyes peeled for game-changing talent at any position and could still add a running back later in the draft, but you wouldn’t expect the position to be a top priority to address this offseason.last_img read more
