Salutron, Inc. Unveils LifeTrak® Zone C410 Activity Tracker At Seventh Annual Health 2.0 Fall Conference In Silicon Valley

FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Salutron, Inc., recognized leaders for the most innovative and scientifically accurate fitness and wellness products, today unveiled the LifeTrak Zone C410 – the latest in NASA caliber physiologic monitoring for activity and sleep tracking.  Dr. Jin Lee, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President of Engineering at Salutron provided a first viewing of the Zone C410 today on stage in a session entitled "Off the Couch and Into Shape: Tools for Physical Fitness" conducted in Grand Ballroom D at 11:30 am Pacific Standard Time during the Seventh Annual Health 2.0 Conference at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley. 

Known for the leading-edge technology found in the LifeTrak brand and other private-label and well-known global sports brands, Salutron continues to deliver advances in activity monitoring that address unmet needs for consumers and drive better health.  Introduction of the first auto-detected sleep monitoring capability for LifeTrak activity trackers, incorporated into the Zone C410, marks another important advance for the industry.  Unlike other devices that require the press of a button before you fall asleep and when you wake up – which is often easy to forget to do – the Zone C410 is engineered to automatically detect when you fall asleep and wake up, as well as track and graphically report your sleep patterns throughout the night.   As with other LifeTrak devices, the Zone C410 also provides accurate heart rate monitoring and blue-tooth compatibility for data syncing with mobile devices in a waterproof tracker that doesn't require charging, encouraging continuous use.

"We believe that providing the best science in an activity tracker that can be continuously worn and easily integrated into daily activities will help drive significant behavior changes that lead to better overall health," said Dr. Mike Tsai, Chairman and CEO of Salutron.  "We are proud to deliver automated sleep tracking technology incorporated into our Zone C410 to the industry and consumers.  It demonstrates not only our commitment to strong science, but sets us on a course to achieve our mission of helping people everywhere live longer, healthier lives."

"Actigraphy – the continuous monitoring of levels of activity and sleep – provided in the LifeTrak Zone C410 is another highly accurate NASA caliber physiologic measurement that we have developed as part of our core technology," said Dr. Jin Lee, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President of Engineering at Salutron.  "We are pleased to lead the industry in advancing the science of sleep monitoring and activity tracking and to continue to develop the strongest science to help keep people healthy.  Our unique algorithms that provide calorie computation based on motion and heart rate, our active motion artifact correction, ECG accurate heart rate and low power signal processing for motion analysis, along with the incorporation of NASA caliber physiologic monitoring for sleep patterns sets a new standard for the activity tracking industry.  We are inspired by the progress being made in activity tracking and excited by the opportunities to continue to lead the revolution in healthcare with our strong science and technology."
