Moov Now App

It gives you quicker access to different parts of the apps from the series of colourful icons at the top of the screen, which can allow you to jump to the mode that you want to start tracking. Also at the bottom of the app there are tabs that give you your activity history. In the top left corner, you can see the settings, where you are able to adjust the basic items such as height and weight measurements.
Run and Walk Coaching
There are four workouts that you can pick from, which include sprint intervals and open training. Once you have picked your workout, all you have to do is pair it and its good to go. Interval training gives you a series of difficulties. Every time you move up, the pace at which you should be running at increases. If you do not hit the target that is required, vocal feedback will announce that you need to swing your arms harder or try to pick up the pace. If you are struggling, the Moov coach will ask you to drop down a level. For open training, the coach will provide details about your range of motion. The information that you will get from this will give you the chance to improve your technique. Once the data is recorded, the app will give you all the information that you need. You would also receive an impact score to see if you are putting to much pressure and are risking an injury.
When you take your Moov for a swim, it is extremely comfortable and unnoticeable when you wear it. You forget that its on and you are able to keep your phone a few meters away. Once your swim is over, you will receive the data, which does take a few minutes. The data will include like distance, calories and laps, different types of strokes, number of stroke cycles, and the time it took to turn. The feedback that you get also tells you ways that can help you improve your swimming technique.
This section has the 7-minute workout if you need to have a quick session, this also includes cardio boxing. When you decide to do boxing, you need to get your feet into position, keep your hands up, and strike with extra power or speed when prompted. The feedback you would get could tell you if you are not punching correctly, which will make sure you would get a full and proper workout. You can also see the fastest punch, hit rate, and even the number of combos from the data. With the 7-minute workout there are levels that you would have to go through, that starts with a fit test. The fit tests include exercises like jumping jacks, push ups, and crunches. Each exercise has a video and a motion gauge to show if you are performing the exercises properly. It might be a short workout, but it will push you and become harder the more you improve.
