Be active with Motiv Ring

Updated 6 months ago ​by Loren Earle-Cruickshanks

National health and fitness groups and government departments – like the American Heart Association, US Department of Health and Human Services, CDC, USDA and NIH – all recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity per week to maintain good health. Few things provide as many health benefits as regular physical activity. The data suggests if you achieve 150 minutes a week you are at lower risk of chronic disease and cardiovascular events. Motiv tracks active minutes through a combination of elevated heart rate and activity. Any time you are moderately active for greater than 10 minutes, you start to accumulate active minutes. When you are at 40% or above of your aerobic capacity, or taking 100 steps or more per minute – it counts as moderate activity. You earn an Action Card for any qualifying activity greater than 10 consecutive Active Minutes. You can tap the card to see heart rate, steps, calories, and distance for the activity completed along with credit for the active minutes you earned.

To personalize your active minutes threshold to you, Motiv Ring automatically measures your resting heart rate each night. For example, a 40-year-old with a resting heart rate of 65 bpm will have to get their heart rate above 111 bpms for 10 minutes or more to start earning active minutes.
