Secrets to a good night’s sleep
The benefits of sleep are well-known. Getting the recommended 7 to 9 hours can help you prevent weight gain, ward off disease, regulate your mood, and make better decisions. But many Americans don’t get enough sleep. The lifetrak zone C410 helps tokeep track your sleep quality easily.
What are simple strategies to help you get better sleep?
Better sleep actually starts during the day. For starters, try not to nap — but if you must, grab a 20-minute pick-me-up nap at least 4 hours before bedtime. In addition, follow these recommendations:
- using the bedroom only for intimacy and sleep, instead of watching TV or using your smartphone
- drinking fluids earlier in the evening, tis will help avoid the need to use the bathroom during the night
- exercising regularly, and at least 4 hours before bed time
- caffeine- and alcohol can work against a good night’s sleep, so limit your intake of those beverages
What should you do in the evenings to prepare for better sleep?
Plan relaxing evenings. Use your computer or watch TV earlier in the evening. Shut out the stress of the workday by reading a book, listening to music, enjoying a warm bath, or trying meditation.
Insomnia is affecting your job performance, your relationships, and your health. What should you do?
If poor sleep persists, or if you wake up after 7 to 8 hours not feeling rested, you may have a sleep disorder. Make an appointment to see your doctor.
The lifetrak C410 automatically tracks your activity during the day and sleep at night! It automatically detects of start and end of sleep cycle and determines duration and quality of sleep. Unlike Jawbone Up and Fitbitband, you don’t have to tell it that you are going to sleep. Your sleep efficiency is automatically monitored based on actigraphy (micro movements).
Learn to change your sleeping routine and offer your body the sleep it really needs by using the LifeTrak Zone C410 now.
One of the best features of the Lifetrak activity trackers is battery life. Unlike other activity trackers on the market, rather than having to take it off and recharge every few days. The battery life on the Lifetrak devices can last up to about a year depending on the usage and the models. The Lifetrak C410 and C300 have a syncing feature with a smartphone, they will not last as long as the Lifetrak C200. The new Lifetrak R415 has notification feature so the battery life will expect to be much shorter. When the device reaches low battery you will need to replace the battery. All Lifetrak models use CR2032 size battery. The manufacturer recommends going to a watch repair shop to get the battery replaced, as the device’s water-proof seal can be broken if not handled properly. However the battery replacement is not difficult to do, you can watch the following video. The battery can be purchased online here. DIY and Save!
When do I need to replace the battery?
- The watch can not sync to the phone
- The LCD becomes dim when the backlight turns on
- The LCD becomes dim when the heart rate is acquired
- The LCD is blank out
- The LCD is dim

Fitness Industry’s First Waterproof Activity Tracker Providing ECG Accurate Heart Rate From the Wrist – and Requiring No Charging – Now Includes Accurate Auto-Detection Sleep Tracking
FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 2, 2013, /PRNewswire/ Salutron, Inc., recognized leaders for the most innovative and scientifically accurate fitness and wellness products, today unveiled the LifeTrak Zone C410 – the latest in NASA caliber physiologic monitoring for activity and sleep tracking. Dr. Jin Lee, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President of Engineering at Salutron provided a first viewing of the Zone C410 today on stage in a session entitled “Off the Couch and Into Shape: Tools for Physical Fitness” conducted in Grand Ballroom D at 11:30 am Pacific Standard Time during the Seventh Annual Health 2.0 Conference at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley.
Known for the leading-edge technology found in the LifeTrak brand and other private-label and well-known global sports brands, Salutron continues to deliver advances in activity monitoring that address unmet needs for consumers and drive better health. Introduction of the first auto-detected sleep monitoring capability for LifeTrak activity trackers, incorporated into the Zone C410, marks another important advance for the industry. Unlike other devices that require the press of a button before you fall asleep and when you wake up – which is often easy to forget to do – the Zone C410 is engineered to automatically detect when you fall asleep and wake up, as well as track and graphically report your sleep patterns throughout the night. As with other LifeTrak devices, the Zone C410 also provides accurate heart rate monitoring and blue-tooth compatibility for data syncing with mobile devices in a waterproof tracker that doesn’t require charging, encouraging continuous use.
“We believe that providing the best science in an activity tracker that can be continuously worn and easily integrated into daily activities will help drive significant behavior changes that lead to better overall health,” said Dr. Mike Tsai, Chairman, and CEO of Salutron. “We are proud to deliver automated sleep tracking technology incorporated into our Zone C410 to the industry and consumers. It demonstrates not only our commitment to strong science but sets us on a course to achieve our mission of helping people everywhere live longer, healthier lives.”
“Actigraphy – the continuous monitoring of levels of activity and sleep – provided in the LifeTrak Zone C410 is another highly accurate NASA caliber physiologic measurement that we have developed as part of our core technology,” said Dr. Jin Lee, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President of Engineering at Salutron. “We are pleased to lead the industry in advancing the science of sleep monitoring and activity tracking and to continue to develop the strongest science to help keep people healthy. Our unique algorithms that provide calorie computation based on motion and heart rate, our active motion artifact correction, ECG accurate heart rate and low power signal processing for motion analysis, along with the incorporation of NASA caliber physiologic monitoring for sleep patterns sets a new standard for the activity tracking industry. We are inspired by the progress being made in activity tracking and excited by the opportunities to continue to lead the revolution in healthcare with our strong science and technology.”
