The iHealth AM3 Tracker is a daily wireless activity and sleep tracker. It tracks every step you take, total distance travelled; all calories burned and even includes your sleep efficiency. This tracker uses Bluetooth 4.0, a low energy technology, to continually collect all of your data to a secure server. It’s not waterproof, so it cannot be submerged into water, but it is sweat, rain and splash proof. So feel free to work up a sweat!
It has two different types of alarms included that really add value to the product. One of them is the silent alarm feature that wakes you gently without disturbing the person next to you. (Your non-morning-person spouse may thank you for this.) There’s also a smart alarm feature that helps you remember to be more active. This activity level feature motivates you to be more active as you achieve different levels of steps or activity.
This device can be worn two different ways. It can be worn on the wrist or clipped onto the waist. It comes in two colour combinations for each (blue and black). If you decide to wear the tracker on your hip make sure to use the clip because that will trigger the tracker to change from waist-wear to hip-wear for maximum data collection accuracy.

This tracker combines with the ‘iHealth – My Vitals’ app to keep you motivated and on track to a more active and heather lifestyle. Another cool thing about this app is that it can be customized for whichever products you use. You can set goals, track your progress and get inspired and motivated. This app allows you to manager your personal health in a more hands-on way, wherever you are. The secure server discussed earlier is a free cloud service that comes with the iHealth tracker. All of your data is stored and backed up securely so that you can access it anywhere. You can also share the data instantaneously with anyone- even your doctor! This device also allows you to track multiple users at once.
The iHealth AM3 Tracker is powered by a rechargeable built-in battery that lasts around five to seven days. It’s compatible with iPhone 4s and later, iPad 3rd generation or later, iPad Mini and iPod Touch 5th generation or later.
