Activ8rlives Launches NEW Waterproof Wearable BuddyBand2 Activity and Sleep Tracker
Waterproof Wearable BuddyBand2 with Smartphone Notifications for just £59.99
By: Aseptika Ltd (Activ8rlives)
This latest addition to the Activ8rlives suite of self-monitoring health devices, is a ruggedized sealed wearable waterproof to 2 metres, with upgradable firmware, built-in notifications for calls, texts, social media when paired with a Smartphone, sleep tracking, inactivity alert, and with data uploaded by Bluetooth Smart (4.0).
The Activ8rlives BuddyBand2 tracks your physical activity and energy expenditure in calories, the Total Distance you have walked, swum or run and the Total Active Minutes during each day, which are especially useful as part of an exercise schedule, overall health and wellbeing or as part of a weight management programme.
The medical emphasis of Activ8rlives also begins to connect with its consumer-focused wearables. Custom Trackers focused on personal health and wellbeing can be created by the wearer online. Custom Trackers can keep count of health events throughout the day with a simple double tap of the BuddyBand2. This keeps score of anything the wearer creates, such as: medication taken, blood sugar recordings, positive decisions undertaken, cravings experienced, mood swings, hugs received, smiles given or almost anything they may wish to discover more about, as they explore what drives their behaviour.
The detailed Sleep Analysis gives a minute-by-minute recording of movement, translated into deep sleep, disturbed sleep, and time awake and gives a measure of quality of sleep. Research evidence indicates that the length of an individual's sleep appears to influence their participation level in exercise the next day – good sleep equates to good participation in being active the next day .
The Activ8rlives BuddyBand2 incorporates a host of user-selectable Notifications, which include alerts for: Text, Email, Voice, Calendar Events, Social Media, and Incoming Phone call.
An Inactivity Alarm alerts you of periods of inactivity with a discrete vibration, reminding you to get up and get moving after you have reached the number of minutes of inactivity you have set yourself. Research suggests there are benefits of getting up and moving after an hour of sitting.
Three programmable Alarms can be set to remind you of other routine events during your day.
The Activ8rlives BuddyBand2 does a lot more than just count your steps and tell the time —it helps you understand how your activity changes throughout the week, month and over greater lengths of time. By incorporating the power of the Activ8rlives BuddyBand2, the Activ8rlives Health Monitoring and Food Diary App and the free Activ8rlives online account, you can continue to set yourself goals, receive achievement medals, form groups, send and post messages to your group members,utilise the online virtual World-Walk AdventuresTM and more.
Activ8rlives is the ideal value-for-money solution to track your health parameters for free for life. Your health tracking all in one place and now Apple Health-compatible (HealthKit) for iOS 8 Smartphones.
The launch of BuddyBand2 coincides with publication of research recommending at least 25 minutes of brisk walking each day to keep cardiovascular and weight-related disease at bay for up to seven years . Other research also highlights the beneficial effects of habitual activity to reduce the symptoms of respiratory disease (pulmonary maintenance)
“Being active every day has significant health benefits for everyone and it is never too late to begin” commented Kevin Auton, Managing Director of Aseptika.
“With this latest addition to our growing range of health monitors to support health self-management, we bring the integration of self-care using wearables closer. Many of the functions being rolled-out on the BuddyBand2 will also appear in our future medical device, the BuddyWOTCHTM”.
