What is wear sense and how does it work?

Last Updated: Jul 26, 2016 05:53PM CDT

Wear sense uses a capacitive proximity sensor to detect when the user is wearing the GT9X device.

 

The wear sensor operates on the principles of capacitive coupling. Since our bodies house charge, proximity to the wear sensor increases the speed the capacitor charges. By measuring the time it takes the capacitor to charge, it is possible to determine whether the device is being worn or not.
