In theory, losing weight is quite simple: you just have to burn more calories than you consume. For many people that is easier said than done, but with a CaloriScan in your pocket you keep constant track of how many calories you have burnt; it’s extra motivation to adjust what you eat accordingly. Unlike other monitors, CaloriScan calculates the amount of energy you burn from all your daily activities, even resting. Whether you’re running, doing the housework or just sitting at a desk, its 3D sensor detect each and every movement, and calculate the calories you've burned precisely.
3D Accelerometer Sensor. Detects movements in three directions.
By measuring the intensity of your activity, the unit can calculate the amount of fat burned in a day
Steps taken during the day
Keep track of your data
CaloriScan fits easily into your pocket or handbag so you can use it anytime, anywhere. And it’s really easy to use with a large display giving you all sorts of additional information, including how far you’ve gone and how many steps you’ve taken.
Whether you want to lose weight or just maintain your current level, CaloriScan gives you the motivation you need to stick to your plan and keep yourself healthy.
Regular physical activity of moderate intensity – such as walking, cycling, or doing sports – has significant benefits for health. Some physical activity is better than doing none.What is physical activity?

Actually sensitivity and accuracy are linked. For a Step Counter to accurately count steps it needs to know your stride (distance between steps). As you can imagine, this figure becomes the basis for counting. This is why it is critical to follow the Instruction Manual when entering your stride.
Correct positioning includes attaching the unit to your belt or the top of your shorts or pants. The unit must be horizontal to the ground in order for the unit to function correctly. Most models have a belt-clip as well as strap, it is important to also secure the strap clip your clothing to avoid losing the device. This is especially true for nature hikers or people walking in crowded environments. For those models with a cover over the display, this should be closed during use, and opened only to view readings.
The following features will help you to achieve your fitness goals:
... shown in kilometres (km)
The calculation is done as follows: Number of steps (n) x stride length (m) / 1000. An accurate determination of your own average stride length is particularly important for an exact result.
METs - Metabolic equivalents:
... show the intensity of the movement compared with resting condition. On average we consume 1 MET when sitting still and 3 METs when walking at normal speed (4 kph).
Ex = Movement units or exercise units / Ex = MET x time
The guideline recommended by the California College of Sports Medicine is 21 exercise units a week.
Exercise units include movements that are of an intensity of greater than 3 METs and last longer than 20 seconds. The OMRON Walking style X Step Counter shows the remaining volume of exercise for the current week. It also shows the time that must be spent per day to achieve the weekly target.
... shows the increased energy consumption resulting from the measured exercise units.
... is based on the finding that an exercise effect only occurs after a certain period of movement.With OMRON Step Counters with Aerobic Mode, only constant movements that take longer than 10 minutes are included in the aerobic movements. (Aerobic = requiring oxygen)
The initial stride length value that blinks on the display is an estimated stride length calculated from the height setting.
Set the actual stride length to use based on the type of walking you will do and your own physique. To measure the correct average stride length, divide the total length of ten steps you walked by the number of steps (e.g.7.8 meter divided by 10 steps = 78 cm).

The Walking style Pro 2.0 comes with a USB connection. Please visit www.bi-link.omron.com for downloading the software. Bi-LINK Online Health Management Platform will allow you to download, view, track and print your Step Counter data. If you own one of the PC Compatible OMRON Blood Pressure Monitors, the same software can be used to capture your blood pressure readings.
