Fitness and Routine

Two types of events express activity data — fitness and routine.

A fitness activity has a defined duration, and is undertaken with the express purpose of exercising — for example: going for a jog, playing basketball, etc. This type of activity will appear in your History list in the Glooko app.

 

A routine activity occurs regularly throughout the day, without a specific goal of exercising — for example: total steps taken in an entire day. Routine activity is aggregate throughout the day and appears at the top of your History list in the Glooko app.

 

Blood Pressure

Blood Pressure measurements are displayed in the History list with the following attributes: systolic, diastolic and heart rate.

 

Weight

Weight measurements are displayed in the History list, in both pounds and kilograms.

*The Moves app is unique in that it records every instance of activity data (including short walks <60 seconds), and sends this to Glooko as fitness events. Due to the plethora of events that may exist throughout a day, the History list only displays fitness events of a duration of 10 minutes or greater.
