The outer ring of the watch features an electrocardiogram, movement detector and a heart rate monitor. On the underside, there are 4 raised steel pads that stick firmly to the skin. What every one of does is unidentified, because Otis remained limited lipped on the features as well as requirements of the prototype watch.

The watch appears to have a button-less screen. According to Otis, this is because the watch is not a consumer device, it is created to be used for research tasks such as Baseline Study – job guided at mapping health and wellness of a body with blood as well as sensory information.
