What is an activity monitor?

Updated: August 2019

Activity monitors, also known as activity trackers, make it a whole lot easier to track your daily physical activity progress towards achieving and maintaining a fit and healthy lifestyle. A physical exercise such as power-walking of minimum 30 minutes per day will have a positive impact on your cardiovascular and pulmonary fitness, tone up your muscles, help with weight loss, energise you and improve your mood.

An activity monitor can tell you how far you’ve walked, how many calories you’ve burnt, and can distinguish between ordinary steps such as walking to the bus stop, and aerobic ones such as going for a run.

OMRON activity monitors are equipped with a 3D sensor which accurately tracks your daily ordinary steps and aerobic steps as well as the associated distance and calories burnt. They also help you analyse your progress over the week through the 7-day memory.
