Nymi has launched the third version of its workplace wearable wristband, a password-free technology designed to ensure the health and safety of personnel across multiple industries.

The Nymi band has a long battery life, cannot be breached from the Internet and is cleanable to standards that make it useful in secure environments. For social distancing and contact tracing, the Nymi Band’s location sensing function determines the proximity to other Nymi Bands and alerts each user of distancing events. For contact tracing, Nymi services can store contact logs for authorised personnel to both understand and stem the spread of contagious diseases like Covid-19.

The band secures individual users’ identities by using their unique fingerprint and heart rhythm to bind them to the band, employing on-body detection technology to ensure the band is always being worn by the intended user.

“Many organizations operate in extremely complex and regulated environments that make digital transformation, security and now, with Covid-19, health and safety for every worker a challenge,” said Nymi CEO Chris Sullivan. “With Nymi, you get a safer, more productive and more secure way to come back to work.”
