Azumio app combines food calorie counter, pedometer, GPS activity tracker, heart rate monitor

Azumio said it has introduced a new food calorie counter and proprietary food database into Argus, the company´s all-in-one health and fitness platform on mobile and web.

These new features are essential to the weight management program that helps users achieve and maintain their ideal weight. Users simply enter their information and target weight into Argus, which calculates a daily calorie budget based on metabolic rates and lifestyle.

The daily calorie budget is dynamically updated whereas consumed food is subtracted and GPS-tracked activities and video guided workouts are incorporated in real-time. This daily calorie budget, along with other health and activity information, is displayed inside the beautifully designed UI to help users stay informed and on target.

Users can log food by searching Argus´ proprietary food database or by scanning barcodes. This highly accurate, verified and independently sourced food database includes menu items from popular restaurant chains and allows users to create and save custom foods and recipes.

In addition to tracking calories, Argus also records macronutrients enabling users to focus on the quantity and quality of the food they eat. Furthermore, Argus allows users to complement the food calorie counter with visual information by snapping photos of their meal, tagging restaurants and adding food groups.
