Portronics, a company known for its portable and digital devices, has introduced a digital pedometer, called the Health Key. Described as an ‘advanced 3D pedometer,’ the H-Key will apparently provide ‘accurate readings’ in any functional position with its ‘Tri-Axis technology’, not just vertical – it is accurate ‘whether it’s up, down or flat, on its side or at any angle.’
The Health Key digital pedometer from Portronics also uses a digital 3D acceleration sensor, supposedly far more accurate than mechanical sensors used in other pedometers. Data provided by the pedometer can help users record their steps, distance, average speed, calories burned and time spent exercising.
The data on the Portronics Health Key is displayed on a LCD screen with a dual row display. Shipping it with a strap, the company tries to ensure the digital pedometer is truly portable, with features like vibration-filtration and smart counting. The Health Key runs on coin batteries, and counts up to 1 million steps with a 7-day memory.
According to Portronics, the Health Key has been designed to be fashionable, and says users can carry it in their pockets, purses, or even wear it around their neck. Other features include a built-in clock, calendar & sports timer and auto sleep mode technology.
The Health Key has been priced at Rs. 1,249, and will be available two different colours – blue and orange. It will also ship with an instruction manual.
