Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Activ8 worn?

The standard Activ8 activity tracker is worn on the upper leg. Other body locations are also possible, however a number of the activity recognition features will not work and outcomes can’t be guaranteed.

What is the correct positioning for Activ8 on the upper leg?

Activ8 can be positioned in a number of ways:

  1. Inside the front pocket of trousers
  2. Attached using the Activ8 legstrap
  3. Sticker or taped to the upper leg

The most accurate results are obtained when movement of Activ8 relative to the body is minimal using a sticker, tape or legstrap.

Is Activ8 waterproof?

Activ8 Gen 2 wearable sensors are IP67 certified devices. The “6” means the device is completely protected against dust, and the “7” means it can withstand immersion in water up to 1 meter deep for 30 minutes without damage.

Important: The professional software application GEN1 can also be used with the new Activ8 GEN2 trackers.
