Its not a pedometer its not an heart rate monitor its a whole new way of measuring your activity enabling you to make conscious decisions on how you can change your life style to become healthier and more active.
Simply enter age, sex, weight and hight and the watch then uses advanced motion detectors to monitor your activity and accurately reports your total calories and burn rate.
Activity monitoring is based on acceleration sensor technology and is best suited for activities that are ‘rhythmical’ and done by foot, such as walking, hiking, jogging, running and Nordic walking.
At the heart of these watches is a capacitive accelerometer that detects even the lightest movements of the body.Data from the sensor is parsed through algorithms which distinguish the intensity of the movements and calculate total energy consumption and burn rate. The information is provided to the wearer in a meaningful and easily quantifiable form (active time, intensity of activity, calories and active steps) which helps motivate and inspire them towards improving the quality of their activity. The range includes the AW200 and FA20.
