Embrace detects walking, running, and sport activities. The minimum amount of active time required for Embrace to detect an activity is below:
- Minimum duration of walking: 5 minutes
- Minimum duration of running and sport activity: 10 minutes
If you walk 3 minutes around your house, you will not see it as “walking” on the graph. However, it will be reflected in the total number of steps you took during that day.
The Mate App might not classify some movement as activity because the intensity of the activity is lower than the average threshold. For instance, with very low intensity activities or walking very slowly, the Embrace might not detect it as activity at all, however the steps will still be counted.
Difference between high and low intensity in sport activities
In some cases, Embrace can register your high intensity activity as low if there is not much motion involved. Keep in mind that Embrace analyzes physical activity through the movement of your wrist. Thus, some activities which require intense physical efforts but involve very few wrist movement, such as weight lifting or yoga, might not be detected as high intensity activities.
