How do I connect my Activ5 to my Apple watch? (iOS only)
First Time User:
When you log into the Activ5 training app for the first time, the app will prompt you to allow health access. Once you are at this screen click “Turn All Categories On” and then click “Allow” in the top right hand corner.
If you already have an Activ5 Training app account, you can connect your app to Apple Health by clicking “Profile” on the bottom right hand side of the screen of the Activ5 Training app. Then, click “Connect to Apple Health”. Next, click “Turn All Categories On” and then click “Allow” in the top right hand corner.
Setting Max Power
Every Activ5 exercise is customized to your strength level. To personalize each exercise you’ll need to set your max power (which is the hardest you can push on the device for that exercise).
Adopt the correct pose and apply as much pressure as you can to the Activ5 device until the timer runs out.
Your max power will be used to calibrate the exercise so it’s challenging but achievable, helping you to get stronger faster.
To accurately track your increased strength over time, we recommend resetting your max power every 7-10 days.
Using your max power as a baseline, the Activ5 Training app will dynamically create a “coaching curve” for each exercise.
The goal is to keep the marker on the curve (or as close as possible) throughout the exercise. Applying more or less pressure to the Activ5 device will move the marker closer or farther from the curve. Your “precision” data will reflect how close you kept to the curve.
Note: if you do not set the max power for a given exercise, it will not be
customized to your strength level.
