Pact, former GymPact, is adding the Motion Tracker feature to its Android app. Previously, an iPhone exclusive, the feature requires intense, highly active movement to count towards one’s pact. It uses the phone’s built-in accelerometer to detect the movement at a vigorous pace for a total of 30 minutes; therefore it is recommended that users either wear their device on an arm or waistband, or hold it in a hand.
Low-impact and slow exercises like yoga or stretching are not recommended with Pact’s Motion Tracker, as it cannot pick up slower movements.
In order for the exercise to count towards a pact, you must workout above the movement threshold for the time to count; the movement under it will not count towards your workout. You are given 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete your 30 minutes of high-impact exercise.
To take advantage of the Motion Tracker feature, you’ll have to update the Android app to version 4.3.0, and you’re good to go. 😉
