What is a Streak in the Me App?
Have you reached your Step Goal several days in a row? Congratulations, you are having a streak!
If you are currently on a streak and reach your daily goal again, you will be informed about it, including the information about the starting date of your streak and the number of days reached.
How is it displayed?
The number of days of the streak is displayed underneath your profile picture. Additionally, you can tap the number (or the streak icon) underneath your profile picture to gain more information on your streak or previous streaks. If you have never started a streak, the pop-up gives you information on how to start a streak.
You can also share your streak on the platform of your choice. Tap the current count or the streak icon and then use the sharing icon in the top right corner to share the streak with your friends.
How are Calories Burned calculated?
The Calories Burned are calculated on the basis of your personal information such as height, weight, gender and age. The counted steps are analyzed every minute, meaning that 100 steps per minute are not the same as 10 x 10 steps in a minute. All activities tracked with your other Runtastic apps are also integrated into Runtastic Me, although we always rely on the more accurate calculation. All calorie values taken from your other apps are marked with a blue sport icon.
How are Active Minutes counted?
You collect Active Minutes by the following two methods:
- All minutes in which you are moving (steps are being detected) while travelling at a certain speed.
- When using other Runtastic apps, all Active Minutes from a session will be imported here as well. These Active Minutes are marked by a blue sport symbol at the bottom.
Set goals; what values can be set as goals?
In order to set a goal open the home screen as shown below and choose one of the values you would like to set a goal for.
For steps per day, we set a healthy standard goal of 8000 steps per day. You can change the goal by pressing the little pen-symbol.
There is no value set for the Active Minutes per day or any other value but you can adjust your goals at any time.
Connect my Wearable and use my Wearable with the Runtastic app
In order to use your Wearable with your Runtastic app, you need to login to the Me app with the same credentials as the Runtastic app (Use the same account).
This way activities are already being synced to your Me App. Your Wearable will also show you your current values during an activity.
In order to choose what information is being displayed on your Orbit, open the settings within your Runtastic app. You will find the option "Runtastic Orbit“.
Here you can choose what to display on your Orbit:
If you connect your Moment to the Runtastic app, the clock hands will stop at 12 o'clock. Start your workout and the hour hand will show the kilometers / miles covered. The minute hand measures the meters - one full cycle corresponds to 1000m. The progress hand will still show the progress towards your daily goal.
After an activity like walking or running, your Me app will display the values from the Runtastic app which will also be included in your daily statistics.
In order to change settings such as the unit type, simply open the drawer menu by swiping the screen from the left to the right, or by touching the symbol in the top left corner.

How do I notice that the battery of my Moment is running low?
If your Moment battery is about to die, the watch hands will stop at 12:00 o'clock and the progress hand will also move to the little moon symbol without having activated sleep mode. You'll then know it's time to exchange the battery. If you change the battery yourself, precisely follow the directions given in the Quick Instructions.
It’s 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’ll then need to calibrate the hands of your Moment again in order to use it. See “When do I have to calibrate my Moment?” for detailed instructions.
