20% of women are anemic, causing life altering issues. It is caused by a lack of hemoglobin in the body. There are currently no consumer devices on the market that allow people to self check their hemoglobin levels meaning they rely on inconvenient doctor appointments.
Changing the wavelenth factor on the sensor means we can track hemoglobin saturation in the blood through the skin.

The design decisions that dictated the final outcome
Typically, women's watches have a white dial. By having 0.5mm, white ABS, capacitive panel it allows a bright LED behind it to shine through.
LEDs can be used to shine through the skin and calculate the Hemoglobin (Hb) saturation.
Charging through pogo pins is much faster than wireless and more convenient that standard wired charging. The circular shape allows the user to charge the device, avoiding the possibility of misalignment.
Customising the strap style and colour gives women the option to stylise Dip.
Machine injection moulding allows the versatility and low unit cost suitable for a mass produced product.
Research shows that women do not want the aesthetic of their watch to be overly saturated with features. The simplified information allows the dial to remain dainty and feminine.
