    Active Minutes are accumulated by the following two methods:

    To add or search for a fitness friend, tap “Newsfeed” on the tab bar followed by the icon in the top right corner.

  • Battery Status of My Moment

    If your Moment battery is about to die, the watch hands will stop at 12 o'clock, and the progress hand will also move to the little moon symbol without having activated Sleep Mode. You will then know it's time to exchange the battery. If you change the battery yourself, follow the directions given in the Quick Instructions precisely.

    It is not necessary to exchange the battery before your Moment indicates it is time to do so. However, if you do decide to insert a new battery before the old one is completely empty, you will then need to calibrate the hands of your Moment again in order to use it. See this article for detailed instructions.

  • Battery Status of My Orbit

    In order to see the battery status of your Orbit, tap the “Profile” tab followed by the gear icon in the top right corner. Now select the “Wearables" option.

    The battery status is indicated in percentage. If it shows 25% of charge left or below, you may want to recharge the device soon.

  • Calculation of Calories Burned

    Tap the “Progress” tab and scroll down to “Calories Burned” to view your average calories burned in the last 7 days compared to your yearly average. For a more detailed insight into your statistics, tap “Show more”.

    The calculated value for calories burned is based on some of your personal information such as your height, weight, sex and age. We also make sure to take different kinds of step patterns into account. For example, 100 steps per minute are not the same as 10 x 10 steps in a minute.

    All activities tracked with your other adidas Runtastic apps are also integrated, although we always take the more accurate calculation into account. Activities completed with other adidas Runtastic apps are marked by a blue sports icon.

  • Calibrating My Moment

    The hands of your Moment need calibration whenever the time is not displayed correctly. Therefore, make sure your Moment is connected to your smartphone. Tap the “Profile” tab followed by the gear icon and select “Wearables” followed by “Moment.” Select “Calibrate watch hands” to set the watch hands to the right time.

    Available Step-Tracking Sources

    This Device: Using this option as your main step-tracking source means that the app will use your device’s motion sensor to collect your steps.

    Manually Add Steps via Google Fit: If the battery status of your phone is running low, you can manually add your steps via your Google Fit account. Your steps data will automatically be synced to the Steps app.

    Note: If you are using a Runtastic wearable, such as the Orbit or Moment, as soon as it is connected, your steps will automatically be synchronized to the Steps app. For more information on tracking steps with a wearable, take a look at this article.
