TempoMusic to match your music with your workout pace
What's a good workout without great music to match? With TempoMusic, you can move to the right music and beats to stay motivated during your entire workout. No messing about with your library searching for music tracks. Just leave it to TempoMusic to automatically select suitable tracks that just keep in perfect time with you… and your workout pace. Kick off your routine with a pumping rock hit, keep up your pace with upbeat pop rhythms and then cool down to a smooth ballad.
Vocal feedback to keep your workout—and stride—in check
Get encouragement and important feedback on your workout—without breaking your stride! Vocal feedback provides status updates at regular intervals or on demand. Find out the calories you’ve burnt or the distance, time and pace covered—depending on your chosen workout or sport. Vocal Feedback keeps you in your groove and does not butt in and interrupt your music. You can also choose the voice-type to get you going: male, female, friendly or tough.
Instant workout monitor to give you a sense of accomplishment
Your Activa player has a smart Instant workout monitor function that records the activity data from your workout. Not only do you get immediate results about your performance, but you also get a great sense of accomplishment. Using personal inputs like your age, weight and height, the monitor calculates the calories you've burnt and the time covered depending on your chosen workout. The information is then displayed instantly on your Activa screen after your workout. If numbers aren't your thing, check out the visual representation of how many chocolate bars you've worked off during your workout.
Goal tracking on your PC to monitor your long-term progress
The various parameters of all your workouts are faithfully recorded by your Activa player so you can monitor your progress daily or over a year, month or week. The software application also lets you set your workout goals, for example how many calories you wish to lose or the distance you want to cover over a specific period. The data is then synchronised with your PC once you connect it to your Activa via USB, and you can view it on a fun and intuitive user interface. With all this info at your fingertips you can give yourself a gold star for your performance or set the bar even higher.
Compete against yourself to beat your last record
You know who your most formidable adversary is… yourself! Add a new dimension and challenge to your workout by competing with yourself and trying to beat your previous—or best—workout. Your Activa helps keep you on your toes by recording and comparing your previous and best workout scores. Not only that, it will prompt you with comparative updates via voice feedback during your workout so you can speed up, push on and stay ahead of yourself!
Clip and move — stylish and convenient
Nothing should get in the way of you and your workout. That's why your Activa player is cleverly designed to be clipped onto your clothes securely and stylishly — whether you're wearing a winter sports jacket or a fine mesh top. It also makes it easier to make use of your player's No-look rocking lens function.
Comfy earhook headphones — your perfect workout companion
