Toshiba's low-power technology ensures that the activity sensors secure
a long life between charges. The sensor information can categorize the
user's activity as "rest," "walking," "running" and more; the monitor
can calculate steps taken, activity intensity and estimate calories
consumed. Activities are logged by the monitor along with the time data
and delivered to a smartphone app via Bluetooth®. The smartphone
provides a hub for connection to the cloud and uploading to a wide range
of services, and the information provides a profile of the user's
exercise and a tool for personal healthcare management.
The wearable device market is expanding rapidly. Toshiba will continue
to promote development work to secure a continuing lead in various types
of sensors, data processing and cloud connectivity.
