More Accurate Than Calorie Counting
- Pertinacity's Adaptive Portion Target algorithm makes Pertinacity more accurate than calorie counting systems.
- While slightly less precise than calorie counters, Portion Counting is as precise as the calorie expenditure estimates of popular wearables like FitBit Ultra, Jawbone Up, and the Nike Fuelband.
