1. A movement monitor device, comprising:

  • a real time clocka first detector detecting only linear movement, for generating a first signal in response to a foot landing movement of the device and a foot lifting movement of the device, and for determining a duration associated with the movements using the real time clock;

    a second detector operative to generate a second signal indicative of an angle of vertical climb;

    a processor for;

    processing the first signal to generate one or more foot movement events based on the generated foot landing and foot lifting signals; and

    processing the second signal to generate a work function; and

    a first communications port, wherein the first communications port wirelessly communicates events, the determined durations associated with each movement, and the generated work function to a receiver and wherein the first communications port communicates the events and generated work function to the receiver substantially continuously.
