Most of the monitors used for keeping a tab on the health of human beings cease to function properly when the person is engaged in heavy work. That is why a pedometer is essentially required for the purpose. However, that even deters the technical device to record accurate readings when the person is either rowing or cycling. Upcoming ‘basis band’ is said to overcome these barriers. The device even helps people to get rid of the chest straps that prove to be uncomfortable at many times. It can simply be worn over the wrist, like a watch.
The device is even equipped with various other detectors, like an advanced galvanic sensor for recording response from the skin. This helps in monitoring sweat levels. An accelerometer even helps in detecting changes in the rate of heartbeat through the pulse. These advanced features will certainly help in providing an accurate and detailed report of health instantly.
