Philips Directlife measures healthy lifestyle

It’s hard to argue that exercising is a bad thing, but it’s just hard to get to it right? Philips argues that we should start small (avoid elevators, park farther away from work…) to reach a greater goal. But the smaller you start and the harder it is to measure, and if you can’t measure it you won’t improve it. Hence their idea of providing an activity monitor (a small, water-proof accelerometer) that records the daily small bursts of activity to generate a report. The application design is nice and seem attractive to use. Be aware that beyond the cost of the device+app, there’s a fee of $12.5 per month. [Philips Directlife page]
