What are all of the different ways to track digitally verifiable sessions toward my Gym Pact commitment?

Presently there are several options for tracking digitally verifiable sessions towards your Gym Pact commitment on both iOS and Android:

1. Pact’s Motion Tracker

Whether indoor or outdoor, Pact’s Motion Tracker records your movements by using your phone's accelerometer. You are required to track 30 minutes of activity above the threshold. You’ll know when you complete one active minute when you hear a *ding*, and you have total of 1.5 hours to hit 30 active minutes. To capture your motion accurately, we recommend holding or wearing your phone on an arm or waistband.

2. RunKeeper and MapMyFitness

If you’d like to record outdoor activities such as running, walking, cycling or hiking, we offer integrations with Runkeeper and MapMyFitness. In order for your Runkeeper or MapMyFitness workouts to count towards Pact, they must meet the following criteria:

-Your activity must be tracked via GPS
-Your activity must be longer than 30 minutes
-Your activity must cover at least 1 mile in distance
-You must maintain a speed of at least 2 miles per hour
- Your activity cannot be longer than 5 hours

3. Jawbone UP, Moves, FitBit

If you’d like to use a step tracking app, we offer integrations with Jawbone UP, Moves, and FitBit. In order for your steps to count towards Pact, you must record 10,000 steps or more in one day.

4. GPS verified gym check ins

We can verify gyms if they’re in a stand alone building, not connected to any living quarters or office space, and have a web presence that verifies the gym’s address. To help us verify your added gym, please send us the address and website.

To add a gym, please follow these steps:

1) Open the app and select the Pact icon in the bottom center of the Pact card home screen
2) Select the dumbbell to access your gym pact
3) Select Gym Check-In
4) The app with search your location and pull up a list of possible nearby gyms. To add your own gym select 'Don't see your gym? Add it.'
5) Enter the location details of your gym and begin your workout!

Please be sure that your GPS is enabled on your device for this function to work properly.

If you’d like more info about any of these options, please let us know by submitting a request. Our Customer Experience team is happy to help!

    There should be an Apple Watch app that can easily track activity, allow gym logins, and connect with Apple Health.

    I had 2 different Fitbits. They both broke and wouldn't sync up, so I missed my goal for a couple of weeks. In the meantime, not wanting to pay for another crappy Fitbit, I bought a Vivofit, which I LOVE! Why don't you allow activities from Vivofit to be used for Gympact?

    We're not yet integrated with Vivofit! We're interested though! We'll pass this to our development team for consideration! Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter feeds for integration news!

    "In order for your steps to count towards Pact, you must record 10,000 steps or more in one day." - Why is 10k the minimum? This is not an attainable goal for me personally for a variety of reasons, but I have my Fitbit goal set to something more reasonable for me. Please reconsider this number---not all of your members and potential members are already fit!

    It seems like strength training in my home gym isn't going to meet the threshold for motion tracker activity, though admittedly I haven't tested that yet. But it doesn't involve a lot of moving or bouncing around and might even look like I'm sitting still on my phone. Same idea for ab workouts (holding planks) Any advice?

    We recommend playing around with it to see the results! Keep in mind that you have an hour and a half to track a half an hour of motion!

    Two things:

    A) Please consider adding Misfit connectivity.

    2) what is the 'threshold' of which you speak?

    A) Thanks for the suggestion! We'll look into this integration possibility. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages for announcements!

    2) The threshold is the calibration of the accelerometer that signifies you have been active during a minute of a Pact Motion Tracker workout.
