Calibrate you app an learn what type of exercise gives you the best health gain. Use the app where and when you want.

What is app calibration?

Calibration lets the app know you a little better. This ensures that you get as accurate feedback on your fitness level as possible. This can only be achieved when the app can gauge your capacity.

What is your capacity?

Your capacity is your fitness level. It indicates how much physical exercise/work you can handle. It is crucial that the app knows your cardiovascular number so that you can receive feedback on the various physical activities you choose to perform.

Your cardiovascular number also gives an indication of your health risk and biological age. When the app has this information, you can receive a lot of feedback on whichever physical activities you choose to spend time on. The feedback will give you more insight on whether your activity of choice is beneficial to your physical health or the fact that you may need to choose a different activity. 

How To Calibrate 📱

The app must be calibrated for both indoor and outdoor use.

Use the app where and when you want.

Calibrating Outside

When you perform an outdoor activity, we only need you to start a 4 x 4 HIT interval. Follow the voice instructions from the app as you either walk or run. Your capacity is calculated based on GPS and barometric data collected on your phone. When the workout session is complete, evaluate it by tapping on the “Evaluate the workout” button. The app will display HIT minutes for all other future  tracked outdoor activities – either running or walking- provided that the workout’s intensity is high enough. 

Calibrate on treadmill

When calibrating on a treadmill, we need to know the speed and incline you used during the 4 x 4 HIT intervals. You enter the values (speed and incline) when your workout session is complete, then tap the “Evaluate workout” button for workout evaluation. 

Calibrate On Watt Machines

Calibration by performing a 4 x 4 HIT intervals on watt machines requires you to enter the average of the watt values generated  in each interval and your body weight. Tap the “Evaluate workout” button for workout evaluation at the end of the session.

Can I get HIT minutes on everything?

Yes, BUT,  given that we are mostly measuring the amount of work you do through GPS, barometric, speed, incline and wattage, data points. Therefore,  we need to add a new measuring function for activities that can not be measured as easily with the mentioned parameters. In this context, you need a heart rate monitor. Connect it to the app and measure your maximum heart rate to ensure that you are working at the right intensity. If you already know your maximum heart rate, enter it into your profile in the app.

How would you like to exercise?

You know the types of exercises that suit you best . But we know that if you want to improve your health and fitness level, you must run out of breath. Whatever you choose to do to achieve this is up to you.
