Pensacola, FL (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
ActiGraph, a leading provider of objective activity monitoring solutions for the global research community, today announced the release of a new generation of Bluetooth® Smart activity monitors. The new wGT3X-BT, in conjunction with ActiLife software platform and the ActiLife Mobile app, offers the most advanced wireless communication, data capture and wear time screening features in the industry, while delivering the extensively validated objective 24 hour physical activity and sleep measures for which ActiGraph is known worldwide.
ActiGraph’s new Bluetooth Smart® wGT3X-BT activity monitor captures and logs the amount and intensity of human movement using a three axis accelerometer and ActiGraph’s proprietary digital filtering algorithm. The wGT3X-BT offers innovative new features including an integrated wear time sensor for precise on- and off-wrist detection, the ability to capture R-to-R heart rate variability measurements, and a device grouping function for applications involving multiple sensors worn on the body simultaneously. A proximity sensing feature provides valuable information about the relationship between activity and social interaction among multiple subjects and enables users to monitor subject behavior in predetermined locations through the use of stationary devices. The compatible ActiLife Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android platforms supports in field communication with wGT3X-BT devices and gives users the ability to view objective measures in real-time.
“Our decision to use Bluetooth® Smart technology for our newest generation of wireless activity monitors allows us to immediately offer a richer feature set, enabling our customers to capture information, such as proximity, that they’ve never had access to before,” said Jeff Miller, Sr. Vice President of Engineering at ActiGraph. “Perhaps even more importantly, the recent proliferation
