Omron’s Most Advanced Tracker Yet with Bluetooth® , Syncs to New Fitness App
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (March 18, 2015) – With healthy living resolutions still top-of-mind (but perhaps becoming harder to maintain), Omron Healthcare, Inc., a leader in personal wellness products, today announced the new Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker, a great tool to help keep people motivated to maintain their fitness goals.
Omron’s most advanced tracker yet, the Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker (HJ-327T) is petite yet powerful. It allows you to transfer fitness data wirelessly to your smartphone with the free Omron Fitness App. Featuring Bluetooth® Smart technology, the Alvita Wireless Tracker records steps, aerobic steps, distance and calories burned so you can set realistic goals and check progress along the way.
“Good things come in small packages, and our new wireless activity tracker in our popular Alvita line is no exception,” said Jill Person, Product Marketing Manager, Fitness, Omron Healthcare, Inc. “While it is our smallest tracker yet, it boasts powerful, leading-edge technology that delivers accurate information to help users turn data into healthy lifestyle decisions.”
Measuring less than 1 square inch and sporting a fresh light green color with optional detachable clip, the Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker uses Tri-Axis technology for accuracy so it can be worn almost anywhere, such as at the hip, in a pocket or tucked inside a purse.
It is compatible with systems and devices including, iPhone® 4S & higher. iPad® 3 & higher, iOS 7+, Samsung Galaxy S® III & higher, Android™ OS 4.3+ when the free Omron Fitness mobile app is installed. The tracker displays the current day’s activity on a clear LCD screen with the tap of a finger, and stores up to 14 days in the device.
The Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker (HJ-327T) is available at the Omron Online Store, on Amazon and at Walgreens beginning in March; the Alvita Tracker distribution will expand to more brick and mortar and online retailers in the coming months. MSRP $59.99. A bulk version also is available in blue (HJ-3327TBULK) for institutions, clinical studies and corporations.
Stay Connected to Your Health with New Digital Tools
Omron has married its accurate technology with connectivity. With the free Omron Fitness app, users can wirelessly sync their achievements to their smartphone (or other mobile device) so that they can know their stats anywhere, anytime. In the Omron Fitness app, users can sync their data with Apple Health, view their stats from the Alvita Tracker by day/week/year, set goals, and receive badges for achievements.
Users also can set up a free account at Omron’s companion website, OmronWellness.com, where they can download and share fitness activity, send data to Walgreens Balance Rewards, get a snapshot of overall health from their personal dashboard, and participate in fitness and health challenges. OmronWellness.com also allows users to connect compatible Omron blood pressure monitors for individuals interested in tracking their blood pressure readings in addition to fitness.
Compatible Blood Pressure Monitors
“Your well-being can be a bit of a numbers game, so we’ve designed smart tools that offer a clearer picture of your health,” added Person. “Our users are already active, but now they can be pro-active about their fitness goals and achievements by leveraging technology.”
