Azumio Launches All-In-One Food and Activity Tracker

7-7-2013 11-19-27 PM

Azumio, a two-year-old mobile health startup focused on creating consumer health apps, launches an all-in-one food and activity tracker to compliment its portfolio of heart rate monitors and fitness trackers. The app, called Argus, will compete with Moves, a similar smartphone-based activity tracker.

Azumio approached automatic tracking a bit differently than Moves. Rather that monitoring movement through GPS check-ins that drain battery life quickly, Azumio uses the smartphone’s internal accelerometer to calculate how much a user walks, runs, or cycles. Users can manually track food intake, hydration, and sleep patterns, creating a centralized platform of intake and expenditures.

The app integrates with some third-party devices, such as the Saultron Lifetrak activity tracker, the Withings wireless weight scale, and several New Balance devices. Integration with big-name activity trackers is critical and Azumio has not yet addressed this.
