ActiGraph wGT3X-BT

The wGT3X-BT is ActiGraph’s flagship activity monitor, used by researchers around the world to capture and record continuous, high resolution physical activity and sleep/wake information. The Bluetooth® Smart wGT3X-BT features ActiGraph’s validated 3-axis accelerometer and digital filtering technology and includes integrated wear time and ambient light sensors.

ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH ACTILIFE VERSION 6.8.1 AND LATER.
U.S. federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.

ActiGraph Objective Measures

The ActiGraph wGT3X-BT captures and records high resolution raw acceleration data, which is converted into a variety of objective activity and sleep measures using publicly available algorithms developed and validated by members of the academic research community. Available measures include:

  •   Raw Acceleration (G’s)
  •   Activity Counts
  •   Energy Expenditure
  •   MET Rates
  •   Steps Taken
  •   Physical Activity Intensity
  •   Activity Bouts
  •   Sedentary Bouts
  •   Body Position
  •   Sleep Latency
  •   Total Sleep Time
  •   Wake After Sleep Onset
  •   Sleep Efficiency
  •   Ambient Light
  •   Heart Rate R-R Intervals*

*Requires compatible wireless heart rate monitor

Features

Bluetooth® Smart

ActiGraph wGT3X-BT monitors are powered by Bluetooth® Smart technology and support a variety of wireless features, including heart rate monitoring, proximity detection, and communication with ActiGraph’s suite of mobile applications for iOs and Android devices.

Proximity Detection

The wGT3X-BT can be configured to detect and log the presence of other devices within range, providing valuable information about social interaction among subjects. Stationary devices can be placed throughout the subject environment to monitor behavior in various predetermined locations.

Wear Time Sensor

A wear time sensor on the back of the monitor uses capacitive touch technology to automatically detect when a wrist worn device has been removed for simplified compliance monitoring and data cleaning.

Ambient Light Sensor

The wGT3X-BT includes an integrated ambient light sensor that delivers lux values alongside activity information, providing insights into the relationship between the subject environment and activity and sleep behaviors.

Specifications

The ActiGraph wGT3X-BT captures and records high resolution human activity information using a solid state 3-axis MEMS accelerometer and our proprietary filtering algorithm. The wGT3X-BT is fully backward compatible with previous device models to ensure data comparability for our existing clients.
