Toshiba develops wristband activity for NTT Docomo

Toshiba has developed a wristband activity and fitness monitor that is available from NTT Docomo, from today.

The monitor integrates low power Bluetooth 4.0 and synchronizes with a smartphone app that displays monitored activities. It makes tracking daily activities as easy as wearing a wristband.

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.
