PhilipsPhilips Activa audio player : Philips has launched its Activa portable audio player at the CES 2010. With a focus on motivating people to improve their fitness, the Philips Activa is the latest innovation in the company’s family of solutions to help people lead healthier, more active lifestyles. The Philip Activa audio player helps motivate people to work out more frequently and intensely by providing real-time vocal feedback on their performance, and music that automatically adjusts in tempo to match their pace. In addition to the Activa, Philips also announced that its DirectLife daily activity monitor and personal coaching will be launched in the UK and Germany in early 2010.

When people increase their speed, faster music from the music library is selected. Slow down, and Philips Activa offers words of encouragement. Featuring a sleek exterior designed to offer durability and style, the new Philips audio player will be available worldwide in April 2010 at a suggested retail price of $129.99.

Philips Activa fitness device
“At Philips, we understand that people struggle to find the time and motivation for physical exercise, even though we all appreciate its importance,” said Bret Furio, Senior Vice President, Philips Consumer Lifestyle North America. “Our Philips Activa portable fitness device is the latest in a line of innovations from Philips that help solve that issue by turning good intentions into actual behavior.”

Philips audio player features TempoMusic
TempoMusic is proprietary software developed by Philips and built into Activa that automatically matches music to a user’s workout pace. It starts by analyzing the user’s music library, storing a detailed set of characteristics for each song, including several related to tempo, to help choose motivating songs for working out. The software also asks users to identify a song that inspires them to work harder and also reflects the type of music they like. By combining these features, TempoMusic is able to choose songs for uploading that are similar to this selected song, ensuring that each user has a library of performance-inspiring workout music that matches their own unique preferences.

• A set of pre-loaded songs ensures that Activa can be used for a workout right out of the box
• TempoMusic matches music with workout pace
• Audio feedback means that users don’t have to break their stride to see how they are doing
• Progress monitoring lets users track performance against goals and beat previous records

Philips DirectLife

The launch of Philips Activa audio player is the latest step in Philips’ commitment to be the global leader in health and well-being, and follows the launch of Philips DirectLife in October 2009. A customized, interactive fitness program, Philips DirectLife offers a fun and simple solution for people eager to adopt a more active lifestyle. DirectLife records a person’s daily movements via a wearable state-of-the-art Activity Monitor.

Philips DirectLife will continue to expand in 2010, launching in Germany in January followed a few months later by the United Kingdom.
