Monday morning usually brings a spate of M&A news/leaks. Today, Techcrunch reports that Basis — the heart monitor wristband company — is either trying to sell itself or raise a Series C round. The acquisition candidates include Apple, Google, Samsung, or maybe Microsoft.
The Basis tracker has the reputation for being one of the more accurate products on the market, but is not the prettiest piece of gear. Speculation points to Apple, which would buy the company for its technology and put it into a much more attractive package. Whether the technology fits into Apple’s apparently well-advanced wristwear plans, of course, an open question.
