In recent years, with the continuous investment of mobile phone manufacturers, the smart watch market is full of vitality. In the first half of 2021, the global shipment of smart watches exceeded 86mu, with a year-on-year increase of 32%. With the peak season of the consumer market in the second half of the year, the annual shipment is expected to exceed 200mu. In the post epidemic era of covid-19 raging around the world, smart watches have been given a new mission, integrating functions that can reflect people's exercise status and health indicators such as blood oxygen, heart rate, ECG monitoring, body temperature, blood glucose and blood pressure monitoring. Under the new normal of focusing on sports health, how does Ti core technology help and lead the new trend of smart watches?

Generally, a smart watch with both sports and health management functions is composed of several functional modules shown in Figure 1. Today, we will mainly introduce ti's solutions for the two most concerned functional modules of battery charging management and body temperature monitoring, in order to help engineers provide optimal device selection and reference design guidelines during project development.

2. Temperature monitoring

Smart watches with temperature monitoring function have been mentioned as early as a few years ago, but they have not attracted market attention. With covid-19 sweeping the world, this function has attracted more and more attention from consumers. Ti has worked in this field for many years, and its product catalog covers a variety of applications. Tmp117, which is mainly promoted in the intelligent wearable market, has a temperature detection accuracy of 0.1 ℃.

Tmp117: up to 16bit data conversion accuracy, + / - 0.1 ℃ (- 20oC to 50oc) medical temperature detection accuracy, digital output, built-in EEPROM without additional correction, I2C temperature early warning, 3 5uA@1Hz Current consumption, 2 * 2wson, 1 * 1.6wcsp ultra small package

Core highlights: ultra-high precision automatic calibration, ultra-low power consumption and ultra-small package

Typical application circuit:

In temperature monitoring, the biggest design challenge is how to fully transmit the temperature of the skin surface to the sensor as much as possible to ensure the reliability of the detection results. Ti models and analyzes the heat conduction path under the wrist of the human body, and provides a number of application design guidelines for engineers' reference, such as layout design guidelines and FPC board reference design, which can accelerate the design process and easily solve the problem of inaccurate temperature detection caused by mechanical structure.
