FREMONT, Calif., June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Salutron, Inc., the foremost leader in heart-rate monitoring and precise biosensing wearables, today introduced its newest activity monitor – the LifeTrak Core C210. The Core C210 tracks 24/7 activity and heart rate, including sleep, calories burned, steps taken and distance traveled, to help users get active, lose weight, sleep better and live healthy. The Core C210 offers truly automatic sleep detection and monitoring – others require users to remember to manually prompt the device when they are going to sleep, taking a nap and waking up.
Knowing and tracking your heart rate is the most important step toward improving your overall well-being, which is why LifeTrak's line of activity trackers help you "Follow your Heart" to a better lifestyle. LifeTrak activity monitors incorporate heart rate and physical motion into the calorie burn calculation, which is considered a more precise way to determine calorie expenditure. They also provide the most sophisticated science and accurate data calculation of any activity tracker on the market, giving users the ability to make more informed changes to their health.
The LifeTrak Core C210 provides an easy-to-read display, where all information is conveniently shown right on the wrist – making it easy to track all of your vitals without having to sync wirelessly with a smartphone app. Complex data is quickly processed behind the scenes, so that users only see the most important and relevant information in an easy to understand format.
Other advanced features of the C210 include:
- Automatic sleep detection and monitoring – Knows when you fall asleep, monitors your sleep quality and detects when you wake up, without the need to prompt
- Advanced Calorie Tracking – Calorie burn integrates heart rate and activity data, resulting in better accuracy
