Samsung W / Concept of device for users' work-life balance

Samsung W
Samsung W

W is a device that looks for a balance between personal and professional users life. W allows sharing and viewing information, that was previously stored, with any user or device. Besides, W uses the heart rate and body temperature for measuring the stress levels of the users, along with their habits, to give them suggestions and strategies for an effective work-life balance. This will reduce the stress generated by diverse agents such as workaholism, over information, meeting new people and misallocation of time; to finally improve willingness and enthusiasm in users and generating more effective work dynamics.
