We are nearly at the end of the first month of the new year, and it is time to take a stock check at what has happened in the past three weeks plus in your life. How’s that diet coming along, in addition to the exercise regime? How about the promise you made to yourself in going to bed early so that you can rise and awake the dawn, while beating the snarling traffic on the way to work? Perhaps things have not gone on as smoothly as you would have liked, but here is a tool that might just give you that much needed impetus — the $ 99.95 Wellness Monitor.
Basically, the Wellness Monitor works this way — it is capable of automatically tracking down your daily movements in addition to sleep cycles so that it can determine whether you are getting the required amount of exercise and sleep. It works in a similar way as that of NASA technology which will help monitor its astronauts in space, as the Wellness Monitor is equipped with an accelerometer that monitors the intensity and duration of movements, track the number of steps taken, distance traveled, and elevation, while calculating the number of calories burned. The sensor is small enough to fit into the included wristband even as you sleep, where it will track tiny tremors in the wrist to tell just how long it took for you to fall asleep, the number of times you wake up, and length where you were actually asleep for.
All information will be sent to the manufacturer’s website sans wires thanks to Bluetooth connectivity, within a 15-foot radius, of course.
