     Another innovative product TANITA offers to help monitor calories used during daily activity, is our Activity Monitors. These products are perfect for the health conscious consumers who want to track their daily progress. TANITA’s unique 3-Axes technology uses internal accelerometers to measure motion on the X, Y, and Z axes. This allows users to carry the activity monitors in a purse, pocket, or around the neck instead of the traditional belt clip-on. The 3-Axes ultimately improves convenience, and offers the ability to comfortably conceal.
