Activity and Wellness Monitor  Favorite

An activity monitoring device is used to collect, explain and outline collected data with the goal of improving both health and fitness performance.

These devices are worn on the body and measure things like miles walked, heart rate and time. They can also provide data storage and wireless communication.
