Direct Life

This page relates to an activity monitor that Carl uses: DirectLife. I think that this monitor does something useful that I cannot get anywhere else, so I want to keep using it, but I do not want to use it in ways that are beyond its ability. I understand it measures 'activity" as acceleration in 3 directions while I am wearing the device and I see that measure as valuable. I do not understand how you convert that to calories since on experimenting I see that you say swimming requires 4.15 calories per minute no matter how energetically I am swimming. That is nonsense. So maybe I need to work only with your measure of activity, but I don't know how to get that. A phone conversation might help. Please call 561-368-7445. Thank you, Carl House (I am in Florida, EST, calls between 7 am and 7 pm are good for me).

It would be particularly helpful to get my rawdata in the period of time when I know what I was doing, e.g. strong swimming. I've tried to keep my own rawdata, but my attempt is very crude compared with what you do.

This webpage focusses on my effort in health maintenance so I can get the "Garp" job done.
