Intensity Minutes
To improve your health, organizations such as the U.S. Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Heart
, and the World Health Organization, recommend at
least 150 minutes per week of moderate intensity activity, such
as brisk walking, or 75 minutes per week of vigorous intensity
activity, such as running.
The device monitors your activity intensity and tracks your time
spent participating in moderate to vigorous intensity activities
(heart rate data is required to quantify vigorous intensity). You
can work toward achieving your weekly intensity minutes goal by
participating in at least 10 consecutive minutes of moderate to
vigorous intensity activities. The device adds the amount of
moderate activity minutes with the amount of vigorous activity
minutes. Your total vigorous intensity minutes are doubled when
Earning Intensity Minutes
Your vívomove HR device calculates intensity minutes by
comparing your heart rate data to your average resting heart
rate. If heart rate is turned off, the device calculates moderate
intensity minutes by analyzing your steps per minute.
Start a timed activity for the most accurate calculation of
intensity minutes.
Exercise for at least 10 consecutive minutes at a moderate or
vigorous intensity level.
Wear your device all day and night for the most accurate
resting heart rate.
Improving Calorie Accuracy
The device displays an estimate of your total calories burned for
the current day. You can improve the accuracy of this estimate
by walking briskly for up to 15 minutes.

Heart Rate Variability and Stress Level
Your device analyzes your heart rate variability while you are
inactive to determine your overall stress. Training, physical
activity, sleep, nutrition, and general life stress all impact your
stress level. The stress level range is from 0 to 100, where 0 to
25 is a resting state, 26 to 50 is low stress, 51 to 75 is medium
stress, and 76 to 100 is a high stress state. Knowing your stress
level can help you identify stressful moments throughout your
day. For best results, you should wear the device while sleeping.
You can sync your device with your Garmin Connect account to
view your all-day stress level, long-term trends, and additional
