AM-180

The Tanita AM180 Activity Monitor uses the latest 3-axis accelerometer 

The Tanita AM180 Activity Monitor uses the latest 3-axis accelerometer technology to provide reliable and accurate measurements of daily activity. The USB feature allows data to be transferred whenever required to a free web-based tracking dashboard or to GMon Health Solution Software for data collection and analysis.

Advanced technology

The auto detection provides accurate readings for low intensity running, walking and other daily activities. Data is shown in hourly segments. The inbuilt memory function allows 14 days worth of data to be recalled and viewed by the user and one year’s data can be stored on the device.  The battery is replaceable and has a 6 month duration.

Data  Analysis

The GMon MA Health Solution Software is a comprehensive database specifically designed to assist data collection, device set-up and analysis. Client profile data can be input to software and downloaded directly to the AM180, saving time and reducing the risk of data entry errors. Once data has been recorded, the measurements can be downloaded via the USB port and automatically uploaded directly to each client’s data file. Simple charts and progress reports can then be created for analysis or a personalised consultation. In addition, a client’s AM180 measurements can be assessed side-by-side with their BIA body composition measurements showing the full impact of their lifestyle on their body.

Practical design

The location of where an accelerometer is worn can have a direct impact on the accuracy of results. After extensive research, Tanita has established wearing the AM180 at chest level reduces the risk of over or under measuring  each movement, especially when fast-walking or jogging. The neck strap and safety clip makes the AM180 easy-to-wear and practical for all users ensuring the highest accuracy in all environments.

Free online dashboard

Users can instantly access their data by registering to the free online dashboard at my.tanita.eu. Their measurement data can be remotely transferred from the website for more frequent data collection.

Key motivational tool

Users on a diet or fitness program can use optional pre-set targets to aid motivation for  daily number of Steps - once the target number of steps are set for that day, the ‘goal’ feature will notify the user 1,000 steps before the goal is reached. Targets for each measurement can be set via GMon Software and transferred to the AM180 to promote an increase of physical activity week-by-week.
