SensorCore :: Fitness tracking with an affordable smartphone

The iPhone 5S has an M7 Motion Coprocessor which collects data from the motion sensor, and there are quite a few apps that can make use of this data. Nokia has introduced a similar technology called SensorCore in its newest devices. Both the M7 and SensorCore use very little battery juice, so they can collect data at all times.

Health & Fitness is the first app that makes use of SensorCore on Windows Phone 8.1 Lumias. The required hardware is included in Lumia 630 and 930, and I believe also in 1520. Which means you can buy a Lumia 630 for less than a Jawbone UP24 and you are not only getting the motion sensing but a great smartphone with enough money left to buy another case for it.

Sehr cool, teste das mal auf dem 1520. Viel wichtiger: geniales Hintergrundbild!!

Mir ist noch nicht ganz klar, wie ich das UP24 mit Windows Phone zusammen bringe. Verliere ich dann nicht einen Teil der Funktionalität?

Ich nehme die 149 Euro, die ein UP24 kostet, und kaufe mit diesem Geld ein Lumia 630 nebst einem zweiten Cover. Ich habe also kein UP24, sondern statt dessen ein komplettes Smartphone.

Danke, habe irgendwie auf dem Schlauch gestanden... ;-)

Bedeutet das nun, dass das Up24 doch nicht so toll/sinnvoll ist oder nur, dass es teuer ist? Ich hatte es eigentlich so verstanden, dass Du es hochgelobt hast, hier rätst Du nun zu dem Lumia. Ich bin etwas verwirrt.

Nich jeder hat das Budget, ein UP24 und ein iPhone zu kaufen. Das UP24 ist toll, keine Frage. Aber diese Menge Geld kann auch mehr kaufen, wenn man es anders alokiert.

Aber wie bekommt man die Schrittzahlanzeige auf den Blink-/Blick-Bildschirm? Ging bei Nokia Motion Monitor Beta, aber das gibt es ja nun nicht mehr.

What feature is that on the Lumia that allows you to have a photo underneath the tiles?
