Provides real-time monitoring for diabetics, congestive obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, uses several monitoring equipment with Bluetooth and a GSM system that uploads that information wirelessly to the health monitoring system called Healthcom that doctors can use to monitor up to 400 patients at the same time to provide early intervention in case of health problems.
It monitors your body 24 hours a day, you strap it to your upper arm, it’s not too heavy but could probably be lighter (I think they should make it a light and compact wrist watch). It has 3 axis accelerometer monitoring all movements, it measures sweat, it’s a pedometer, heart rate and body heat monitoring and based on your height and weight it can calculate calorie output/usage with 90% accuracy (so they say) using clynically approved methods. It’s available on Amazon.com
