    Hello Gideon,

    Besides using step counter, could we know which function will you use in your application?

    If you use G-Sensor on the head device, you could choose BMA456. If you use IMU on the head device, you could choose BMI270.

    Thanks for your response.

    I want to use an accelerometer. 

    Can I use a feature of step count included in BMA400 on the head?

    Hello Gideon,

    Yes, you also could use BMA400 step counter for your application.

    Hello Gideon, 

     

    I think it is okay with any parts, but you need to test of course with our two algorithms. 

    Currently, we offer two algorithms for BMA400 which are for wrist and non-wrist. 

    In my opinion, non-wrist algorithm is more appropriate for head because it is more sensitive. 

    Page 43 in datasheet, you can check our algorithms and also you can test it 🙂 

    Hopefully, it helps you. 

    Thanks,
