|This must be recently written/updated as he refers to "Onitor Track", released a few weeks ago.He refers to "enhancing the accuracy of the Heart Rate measurement" and "improve the current ECG". There is no news from CTAG on firm orders. Quite a change from the news flow last year. We don't know whether the device is working or not. The profile does tell us it exists and is being worked on. My understanding was that IMEC supplied the algorithms under license and received around 5 million shares in lieu of fees. If CTAG are changing the code then presumably they are breaking away from IMEC for the algorithms.Extract:"My responsibilities are to research, develop and implement the intelligent algorithms that power the 'Onitor Track' device. This is a wearable health and fitness product that measures the heart rate, steps taken, distance walked, calories burned, user activity and other useful health statistics.Achievements include:· Designing a new 'step counting' algorithm (patents applied for). This work involved developing the concept, simulating the functionality in MATLAB, and writing the implementation on the ARM Cortex-M device using 'C'. · Developing a unique 'Activity tracking mechanism' that relies on the feedback of device orientation, frequency content of accelerometer data and motion data.· Enhancing the accuracy of the Heart Rate measurement during periods of intense activity, by implementing an Adaptive 'LMS' Filter that excludes the interfering motion produced by the user's activity.· Developing a method that identifies when the device is worn in the wrong orientation, and applying a correction to the accelerometer data to ensure the statistics remain consistent.· Actively researching new algorithms and methods with potential to improve the current ECG, Steps and Activity Detection module performance. Optimizing the existing code to reduce memory usage, increase processor efficiency and enhance battery life. Making good use of the ARM DSP CMSIS Library to promote re-use of efficient code.· Debugging of software linked performance issues such as inaccurate step count, no ECG, inaccurate activity detection, etc.· Designing a Calibration routine for the Accelerometer, to ensure that performance is guaranteed across multiple devices and reduce the product-to-product variations.· Providing technical advice and guidance on current and future software direction|
|Maybe so ....but doing something far more worthwhile than you will ever do|
|Biog for an engineer working at cloudtag https://www.linkedin.com/in/efosa-ibizugbe-a21a17101/
Interesting description of what he's working on. Doesn't sound at a very advanced stage to me. Sounds like a round about way of ssying they are trying to get it to work properly.|
|20 years ago when we were buying gadgets like this we were influenced by one good review online, or in a newspaper or magazine. Nowadays, we look for impartial comparative reviews, customer feedback / reviews. That said, 120+ of these fitness trackers are on sale today. With good marketing anything will sell. For companies to survive they either need to make a good profit or have a regular flow of new money from investors.|
|@Nod the Blaze 2 is £40 more but there is no monthly subscription as far as I know. The Blaze 2 is miles better and actually exists. Onitor's only advantage is that it claims more accurate HR monitoring but it's just a claim since nobody independent has seen it working. Onitor only records HR while out of the strap which to my mind would make it much worse at recording DAILY activity and thus Calorie burn for tracking weightloss.
I can't see why a consumer would chose Onitor over Blaze. It makes no sense|
|Log, the Fitbit Blaze reviews are pretty good, around 8/10The Blaze is a lot more expensive than Onitor is priced at. A buyer will get what they pay for - a product that works or a product that doesn't work.|
|jakecat1, suffering long term holders like to argue that people who post five times a day on advfn don't have a life and must be overweight slobs, while the rampers who post 50 times a day on LSE have a balanced life and are super healthy.Given that CloudTag's target market is overweight people they really should be targeting advfn users - if your hypothesis is true.|
"This is a promising company, with a product ..."
Really? What's the "product", where can we buy it? Nowhere? Where can we see a demonstration of it? Nowhere? not even at CES 17, the most important tech even of the year where they just had prototypes?
So this is a "promising company that's been promising a product for almost four years now but hasn't actually got one yet".
Doesn't trip off the tongue.
|^ PJ - er.. How about an onitor tracking your wealth depleting? ;-)|
|I am on my second Beer and my FITBIT tells me I have 'burnt' 1911 calories so far today whilst consuming 1617. I have taken 10,330 steps and climbed 19 flights of stairs. I have exercised for 48 minutes in the fat burning zone. So theoretically I will lose weight today. It tells me I slept for 7 hours last night an woke up 6 times. Except there are 3 more Beers in the fridge so the expanding waist line may win again! :-((
My resting heart rate has increased from 48 to 53 whilst drinking the Beer.
It will probably go much higher once 'er indoors returns home.
What extra info will CTAG tell me when I can buy one?|
|jakecat I'd love to buy an Onitor, where can I get one? Oh yeah.....|
|For Jakecats information; this "promising company" is based in the Cayman islands and the only thing it promises to do is lighten your wallets. I'm a huge fan and backer of young businesses and do very well out of it. I'm also a 1st team tennis player at my club and have no need of a non functioning onitor to tell me whether I am fit enough. I made the huge error of investing in fitbug which is a British company and lost money on it. Sold out with a 90% loss - would have been 98% down by now!!
CTAG is just not going to make it in a crowded marketplace. If you believe that it has something that predators are going to cough up £30 million for you and all the myopic followers of cloudtag will be much lighter in the wallet department sooner or later.|
|Shameful to see the ramping dynamic duo, parading as long term holders in CTAG off ramping elsewhere.
All that cut and paste and it still won't fly.|
|Negative speculation...Bet the large majority of posters in here 'can always be found in the kitchen at parties'.With this in mind, you might do well to buy yourselves an Onitor track... Might also help you to become more active and spend fewer hours sat on your rears, posting negative drivel on here. This is a promising company, with a product that could (yes it is still a speculative punt) do millions of people good, and support the improvement of their health. Your posts will serve no purpose other than to scare off a small minority of newbies, with limited knowledge of the company. Does nobody any good whatsoever. Why not come out of the kitchen and get behind it? You would probably feel a lot better for it...|
|I've been amazed that buying has held the price up as it is, and 'Investors' can risk their hard earned in a possible fraud. Unbelieveable.
However, imo, the longer we go with no positive news from CTAG then the weaker the buying will get.|
|Anyone else reckon once it hits 6p price will collapse ?|
|I know it's only anecdotal but someone I do some work with put on 2st over Christmas. He bought a Fitbit Blaze and has been religiously sticking to the weight loss program he's set up on it. Basically he's put in that he wants to create a calorie deficit of 1000 per day.
He puts in everything he eats into the dashboard and he showed me how it works. It's actually a very slick interface and it has every single type of food imaginable. He reckons the HR monitor on it is pretty accurate. He used to play football semi-pro so knows roughly where his HR is and reckons it does a decent job. He's got goals setup and treats and reckons it's pretty motivating.
Bottom line is it works and is pretty slick. Fitbit and the other big guys will have the best interface/apps/videos/food libraries etc. etc. They even now have a social network built in so users can share weightloss experiences.
The idea that CTAG are the only guys on the market addressing weight loss is farcical.
There is no way they'll compete against the big players who can throw so much more capital at things like phone apps and website dashboards. Amortised across there millions of users these costs will be tiny anyway.|
|31 appointments. Wow. Must be worth £1million per appointment. Fully justified market cap !|
|but they had 31 appointments at CES hippo.......|
|Fitbit now offer all the premium video content for 30 quid a year. They tried pay as you go, clearly not working.This is content that online users actually rate 5 star.....Put up or shut up time here, bust within 6 months imho|
|Our friends at Wareables did a review of five Budget trackers in which Fitbug Orb was placed fifth.https://www.wareable.com/fitness-trackers/big-test-fitness-trackers-for-less-875We don the top cheapo trackers in a budget Battle RoyaleThe Fitbug Orb has no business being the size of a watch given than it doesn't tell the time. It's the bulkiest of those on test and, looking a bit like a school project, it should be the least attractive of them all - but it's not. There's no disguising it as a budget tracker. What's more, it comes undone far too easily leaving us searching the ground on more than one occasion.Despite its big round face, if offers zero visual feedback on how you far you've progressed towards your goal. On top of that, the mode-changing button, which is front and centre, seems a bit unnecessary given that you should really be able to do everything you need through the tap of your finger on the app anyway.|
|But these will make billions ............ they said so !|
|Fitbug commenced its development more than three years ahead of CloudTag. It doesn't make a profit and relies on regular fundraising to survive. The fitbug shareholders who bought in at 5p, 7p, or 15p will never get back their money. The directors get paid but there will never be a return for shareholders. The market is saturated and the Chinese will churn out lower price devices.|
|Fitbug is interesting. They obviously have tried to go down the B2B rout as they can't compete with the likes of Fitbit in the B2C space.
Today's update shows just how competitive the B2B space is also.
Interesting also is how far Fitbug have got on not much more cash than CTAG have burned already.|
