Embrace detects walking, running, high and low-intensity 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 other general (low and high) 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 if your activity is very low or you walk slowly the Embrace might not detect it as activity at all, however the steps will still be counted.
Difference between high and low intensity activity
In some cases, Embrace can register your high intensity activity as low if there is not much motion involved. Examples of such activities might be weight lifting or high intensity yoga where high level of exercise intensity does not correspond to the amount of movement required.
