Those of us who try to make excuses for not jogging or working out at
the gym because we "are always active during the day" will either be
proved or disproved by the Seiko SlimStick.  More than just a
pedometer, it keeps track of your every movement and determines exactly
how many calories are burned.

The exercise monitor is about the size of a pack of gum and utilizes
dual-axis accelerometers to track the magnitude of your movements.


The SlimStick counts burned calories, the amount of time you were
active for, and the number of steps walked.  All of this data will be
processed to create an overall exercise quality score, allowing you to
compare and analyze different days.  The device stores up to three
months of data.

The bad news?  Only available in Japan.  I guess, as with the Wii Fit, they expect us to wait for anything to help us increase our lifespans.

One could strap it to their wrist and see how many calories they burn while... nevermind. Zip it!

 I do think the technology is pretty cool... looking forward to when they hit the US market (... or IF they hit the US market).

Hopefully it's cheap when/if it hits here.  Looks like it could be useful for the right price.
