In a surprising move, medical technology specialist Masimo is stepping into the consumer tech arena, introducing the Freedom Smartwatch. This shift comes from the legal battle that resulted in a ban on Apple’s infringement of its patented sensors. In this article, let’s dive into discussing the latest Masimo Freedom smartwatch, including its price, specs, and more.
Masimo Freedom Smartwatch Overview:
Masimo’s recent legal clash with Apple centered around patent infringement claims related to blood oxygen monitoring technology has led to significant developments. Their legal victory and subsequent ban on certain Apple Watch models in the US set the stage for Masimo’s expansion into consumer-friendly gadgets.

The upcoming Freedom smartwatch boasts a round display, a departure from the common rectangular screens found on Apple Watches, emphasizing a distinction between the two. Focused on health monitoring accuracy, it offers features like hydration tracking, blood oxygen monitoring, respiration rate measurement, heart rate analysis, step counting, fall detection, and more.
