Philips DirectLife Activity MonitorDirectLife's Activity Monitor is a small device that tracks body motion every time the user moves up, down, forwards, backwards and sideways, and calculates how much energy was used to make them. The device can fit into the users pocket or can be worn around the neck or on a belt pouch, and is waterproof up to 3 meter below the water’s surface.

The Activity Monitor uses a web component to measure what you’ve done against your personal daily target. A series of indicator lights on the Activity Monitor show how you’re progressing throughout each day, making it easy for you to keep on track towards your goals.
