Motivation to move

Polar sports watch or fitness trackers give you an activity goal each day, it guides you on how to reach your goal and rewards by giving feedback and showing you the benefits of your activity.

Exercise is only one form of physical activity. Even if you are active and fulfilling or exceeding global physical activity recommendations, you can still be sitting down for too long. Activity Benefit gives you the insights to change your habits to improve your health and helps you to add active breaks into your daily routine, by reminding you to get up when you've been sat still for too long.

With practical guidance like ‘walk for 50 minutes or ‘jog for 20 minutes’ you can choose how to reach your daily activity goal. Meet your goal faster with more intense activities or stay active at a slightly more moderate pace throughout the day.
