Activa knows you can

Music, feedback and results to keep you going

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 mussing about with your library searching for music tracks. Just leave it to TempoMusic to automatically select suitable tracks that just keeps 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 to interrupt your music. You can also choose the voice-type to get you going: male, female, friendly or tough.

Instant workout monitor to give 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 of 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 offloaded during your workout.

Goal tracking on 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 synchronized 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.

Smartload for easy transfer of workout songs to your Activa

Smartload's sophisticated algorithms quickly scan and match music according to your taste - all with the click of a button. First, choose the amount of music you want to upload: from 30% to 60% or even 90%. Next, the fun part - select a desired song so Smartload knows this is the type of music you'd like to keep you going in your workout, then click Sync and you're all set to go!
