Activity Monitoring

Activity monitoring is based on body movement – telling students in a fun and easy way how active they are throughout the day. Thanks to the built-in accelerometer, the wrist units are ideal for students that want to measure their daily activity. There is no need for a chest strap. The wrist unit activates automatically when they start moving, – whether it’s running, jumping, throwing, swimming, or playing.

Benefits of activity monitoring include:

  • 24/7 measurements of students’ daily activity, and sleep time
  • Instant feedback that motivates and encourages students to be active
  • Allows you to create long-term reports of students’ activity levels
  • Allows you to objectively evaluate your students based on their performance
  • Helps you teach your students the benefits of leading a healthy and active lifestyle

Activity Zones

The Polar Activity Monitor divides all activity into five different zones and displays students’ level of effort in an easy and understandable way. The more vigorously they exercise, the harder the little character works on their wrist unit. The table below shows the different zones and example activities for each.
