What are the Activities

The activities are a way to reflect your current fitness level.

Why should I allow access to HealthKit?

When you open the application for the first time you will be requested permission to access your data on HealthKit regarding:

Date of birth: Used to customize the ranges provided by our application for each of the activities.

Heart Rate: The main need of the application, if the permissions are not granted the application will not work because HealthKit is intermediary between the Heart Rate Sensor in the Apple Watch and our application.

Are my private data sent at any moment out of my iPhone?

No, all data are respected and will not leave your iPhone.

When should I select "Intense"?

Intense is suitable for actions that require high physical exertion; e.g. sports.

When should I select “Moderate"?

Moderate is suitable for actions that require moderate physical effort; such as dancing, walking, cycling, etc.

When should I select “Resting”?

Resting is suitable for actions requiring mild exertion; for example, relaxing, watching TV, doing yoga, etc.

How can I change my current activity in the Apple Watch manually?

Just tap anywhere on the screen and a list will appear where you can choose the option that best fits your current physical activity. It is not necessary to perform a force touch.

What do the colors in the chart mean?

Purple: It indicates that is below the optimal range for the selected activity.

Green: It indicates that is within the optimal range for the selected activity.

Yellow: It indicates that is slightly above the optimal range for the selected activity.

Red: It indicates that is well above the optimum range for the selected activity.

Should I be concerned if the needle is outside the optimum range (green)?

Our application intends neither to replace your doctor nor to provoke situations where you would feel affected by our calculations. If the needle remains outside the green area for some time and your current physical activity corresponds to the selected activity, we recommend to:

  1. Check that the measurements on your Apple Watch are being properly performed.
  2. Consult specialized help.

Is it possible to add new types of activities or modify existing ones?

At the moment this is not possible, these features will be available on future versions of the application.

Why does the application show different data in the Apple Watch and in the iPhone?

Sometimes applications may lose sync when both devices are at some distance or an internal problem occurs in the pairing of the iPhone and the Apple Watch.

This can lead to discomfort and it can cause that when communication is restored, multiple updates will be sent one after the other or communication between the Apple Watch and the iPhone will be lost.

In this case, the fastest solution is to restart the application on the Apple Watch.

What was the formula used in this app?

We have taken into account the formulas and values from a study published in 2001, performed on healthy adults, that found the accurate formula of 208 - 0.7 x age (from Tanaka, H., Monahan, K.D., & Seals, D.R. (2001). Age-predicted maximal heart rate revisited. Journal of the American College of Cardiology, 37, 153-156)
