Health & Fitness: Have you ever questioned how much energy you burn up … or don’t … every day? The DirectLife by Philips is a non-invasive personal-activity monitor that fits in a pocket, around the neck, or on a belt while it measures the energy expended by its wearer throughout the day. The unit plugs into a computer to upload the information it collected into the manufacturer’s Web site. That information is then analyzed and results in suggestions and recommendations being offered to achieve the optimal daily energy consumption. The device operates on technology developed jointly by Philips Research and Netherlands-based, and highly rated, Maastricht University.

The DirectLife is waterproof. So, it can go just about anywhere, including your favorite swimming pool. There are nine lights on the front of the unit that lets the wearer know how much energy percentage-wise has been spent for the day. The goal is to get six of those nine lights to go green by the day’s end for a 100-percent grade. Burn, baby, burn!
