“The BMA400 offers an unrivalled combination of low power consumption, outstanding performance and advanced features, making it ideal for wearables,” says Dr. Stefan Finkbeiner, CEO of Bosch Sensortec. “I’m delighted that its value has been recognized through this prestigious award.”

The new accelerometer usesten times less current than existing productswhilst still delivering exceptional performance and significantly extends battery lifetime. This is a key feature in always-on wearable devices such as fitness bands, smart clothing, watches and activity trackers.Furthermore, the integrated ultra-low power step counter of the BMA400 makes it easy to add activity recognition into new types of wearables such as regular watches, cutting down development time and effort.For more information, please have a look at the BMA400 video and at the Bosch press release“CES 2018 Innovation Awards for Bosch connectivity solutions”.


The CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the owner and producer of CES 2018, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

Entries are evaluated by an expert panel on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, unique/novel features present and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.


The demand for safety, security, energy efficiency, and convenience in cities is growing. These are just a few of the challenges that are resulting from growing urbanization. The key to overcoming them is intelligently connected cities – known as smart cities. In many places, such cities are already a reality: Bosch has a multitude of solutions that are helping to make cities smarter and improve quality of life for their residents.
