How It Works
The key to the accuracy of Tech4o watches lies within their accelerometer sensor. The accelerometer sensor works by first detecting changes in the user’s movement (acceleration) that are translated into varying degrees of electric current within the sensor. These electric currents are instantly decoded by the Tech4o watches into highly accurate measurements of speed and distance and displayed on the watch face. Accelerometer sensors are commonly found within a diverse range of industrial products in which accuracy is critical to performance, including automobile air bags and tilt meters. Now, thanks to Tech4o engineering, you can experience the same highly accurate measurement of your outdoor performance by using Accelerator™ and Traileader watches to track your own speed and distance!
The underlying technology in the Tech4O Running Watches is an accelerometer sensor. Accelerometers are used to measure acceleration. Originally developed during the Space Race to replace outdated gyroscopes, accelerometers can be found in a diverse range of today’s products such as automobile air bags and tilt meters. In the Accelerator watch, a user’s movement (acceleration) produces varying degrees of electric current within the sensor, allowing the watch to detect different levels of acceleration, and therefore measure speed and distance.
There are really only a few different ways to calculate the speed and distance of human-powered, on-foot travel. The first was basic math, next came the mechanical pedometer, followed by satellite tracking GPS years later. Mechanical pedometers are cheap and abundant, but also highly unreliable. They operate on a simply pendulum clicker that relies on the walker’s hip movement to count steps. Unfortunately, mechanical pedometers end up counting a lot of non-walking movements and assume that walkers are making consistent and repetitive steps, resulting in inconsistent measurements.
GPS technology is impressive, but also expensive, complex, and not always ideal for outdoor activities or indoor training. Satellite signals can be lost in heavily forested areas, indoors, or behind large buildings and receiving signals eats up batteries. When a good signal can be found, often the device does not receive info often enough to account for twisty backcountry trails.
The Tech 4o Accelerator Series fills the void between old mechanical pedometers and the overkill of GPS. A simple, yet versatile, wrist-watch design can provide extremely accurate speed and distance data in all conditions.
Highly accurate step counter with adjustable sensitivity allows users to tune the sensors to their individual walking style. Doctors everywhere are now recommending 10k steps a day to maintain a healthier lifestyle. All sensors are contained in a simple wrist watch. That means no funny looking mechanical belt clips our funky shoe pods. Get off the beaten path! Free yourself from mileage markers at the track or trail! Pick a new route every day! The Accelerator can automatically distinguish between running and walking, and can calculate your average speed, distance, caloric expenditure, and total exercise time.
The Accelerator has a delayed step counter feature that differentiates between ancillary movements and actual steps. This feature provides users with the most accurate results by delaying calculation until it has registered 10 steps in a row to eliminate overly sensitive step counting. The smart scheduling features allows users to set the pedometer to automatically start/stop counting steps at a predetermined time every day, so you’ll never forget to turn it on.
This feature allows users to customize their watch to their specific body type and walking/running style. No matter how fast or slow, tall or short, each user can personally enter their weight, average walking stride, and average running stride in order to ensure accurate results. Hikers can easily account for loaded pack weights. Runners can dial in the stride length to account for varying terrain and/or speed workouts. Quickly adjust weight and stride lengths as conditioning improves.
The accelerator series’ powerful stopwatch features allow users to record exact results to within 1/100th of a second for up to 50 laps and a total time of 24 hours.
Although the watch has several advanced ways of calculating speed and distance, the old-school chronograph still has a place and purpose.
A simple countdown timer can come in real handy at times. Set it for 10 minutes as a quick reminder. Use it to monitor your running/walking pace and set speed goals.
Alternative Time Zone
Great for those that travel! Allows users to set and display an alternative time zone along with the current home time display. Never lose track of time no matter where you are.
Daily Alarm Mode
We are all creatures of habit in our daily routines. A great way to set a daily reminder or wake up alarm.

ChicBlvd Inc, a women-owned multi-media company located in Vista, CA which began in 2004, includes three divisions–an online magazine (ChicBlvd.com), product development division (chicBuds.com) and a Public Relations firm (ChicExecs.com) servicing our 40 clients. Background experience within the organization includes 11 years Advertising/Marketing/PR as well as 8 years of Business Management and Retail.
The division of chicBuds was launched in 2006 with the product chicBuds retractable earphones with Swarovski Crystals—a sweet treat for your ears! The original line includes 5 standard “flavors” of Swarovski ear candy including Watermelon (Pink), Grape (Purple), Sour Apple (Green), Blueberry (Blue) and Marshmallow (Clear). And eventually expanded into various casing colors, an iPod-Inspired Designer Series and Limited Edition designs (including Breast Cancer, AIDS, ChicBlvd Fitness in partnership with American Heart Association).
Not only are these earbuds trendy and fashionable, adorned with about 85 crystal pieces, they are also functional with the built-in retractable device. The device allows the user to adjust the cord to 5 different lengths to accommodate any activity. The retractor also recoils the cords so that there is no mess or tangle when the earbuds are not in use. This innovative feature adorned with Swarovski crystals is the only one of its kind as ChicBlvd Inc. holds the design patent on this product.
chicBuds earphones are compatible with the iPod, iPhone, MP3 player, CD player, airplane connectors… basically any listening device.
This product has received over 30-40 magazine/press features plus celebrity endorsements since its launch–and the chicBuds division has expanded its “sweet shoppe” to include additional techie accessories. New products include a version for men called RockBuds, iPod cases with colors such as Bubble Gum and Cotton Candy, an Exercise Kit (in partnership with Violet Love Headbands), chicBabies cell phone earbuds and more.
chicBuds retailers and partners include Mary Kay Cosmetics, Fred Segal, Intuition, Ceasar’s Palace, Wynn Hotels, Fairmont Hotels, Marriott Hotels and hundreds of boutiques nationwide. chicBuds are also distributed in Japan and Australia and are sold in over 10 countries.
Men’s Designer Series – Earbuds that Rock!
Don’t settle for plain-looking earbuds when you can have RockBuds! Rock out in style with RockBuds Inner Ear Designer Series made by chicBuds. These buds feature a built-in retractable device that’s not only tricked out with stylish designs, but serves a functional purpose too! The retractor allows the cord length to expand and retract to 5 stopping points… shorter for use on an armband and longer to reach an iPod on a belt. (The clip prevents cords from bouncing around). This compact retractable device also prevents cords from tangling when not in use. Rock out with RockBuds!
