Toshiba has released a wearable fitness tracker, WERAM1100, for online sales in Japan.
An integrated accelerometer enables the WERAM1100 to estimate physical activities, such as steps taken, distance traveled and calories burned. The fitness tracker can also measure sleep states and patterns and hours of sleep per day. A dedicated app syncs information to a smartphone via Bluetooth and allows users to view accumulated data as graphs. Users can also upload photos and calories counts of meals, to monitor diet along with physical activity and sleep, according to the vendor.
The WERAM1100 draws on signal processing technology expertise that Toshiba has cultivated in its semiconductor business, and achieves a design that keeps power consumption to a minimum - the WERAM1100 can run for two weeks without recharging, removing the need for users to carry a charger when traveling, the vendor said.
