The all new MotionWatch Nano is a replacement for the Actiwatch Mini

The Actiwatch Mini is an ultra-miniature Actigraph specifically designed for the non-invasive monitoring of animals in veterinary applications. Its small size means that it can be used to record sleep, activity and circadian rhythm on animals of all sizes.

The Actiwatch Mini is a collar mounted device containing a single axis accelerometer which records physical movement for up to 90 days which may then be downloaded to a PC for analysis. 

The Actiwatch Mini software package includes tools for the analysis of sleep, circadian rhythm, and physical activity providing key objective endpoints for veterinary research. Note: The Actiwatch Mini software is not currently MacOS compatible.

The Actiwatch Mini is NOT available for human use – please consider MotionWatch 8.
