Functions Active

Homescreen

Press one of the two buttons to activate the homescreen. Depending on the selected home screen, the display shows different values.

Steps+kcals

Displays the current date, battery status, your current heart rate, your steps taken so far and your calories burned so far for the current day.

Reg & Stress

Shows your water consumption, regeneration values, stress values and your individual training recommendation.

Which of these two screens you want to use as a homescreen can be defined in the VIITA App.

Steps

The status bar symbolizes how close you are to your defined step daily goal. You can set this daily goal in the  VIITA App.

Calories

The status bar symbolizes how close you are to your set daily calorie target. You can set this daily goal in the VIITA App.

Note: If you do not wear your VIITA Watch, our intelligent algorithm will recognize and consider this. The algorithm deactivates the HRV and micro-movement measurement technology and uses values from your individual past instead. This ensures that you get accurate information about your calorie consumption even when you’re not wearing your VIITA Watch.

Dehydration

Your VIITA automatically calculates the amount of water you need every day and also shows you your current consumption. So you know at any time how much water you have used so far. An example: If 2.3 litres are shown on the display of your VIITA at 22:00 hrs, then you should have taken at least 2.3 litres of liquid from 00:00 to 22:00 hrs.

Big Data

Through a multitude of data, which VIITA has collected millions of times since 2011, we have succeeded in developing an algorithm that makes it possible to determine your water consumption very precisely. Already 2% fluid loss leads to a performance deficit of up to 20%. This loss in performance is reflected in many measurable factors.

The following measurement data are used to calculate your individual water requirements:

  • data of the micro movement sensor
  • pulse
  • heart rate variability
  • regeneration state
  • stress progression
  • movement patterns of the last 7 days
  • sleeping time and quality

Note: If you do not wear your VIITA Watch, our intelligent algorithm will recognize and consider this. The algorithm deactivates the HRV and micro movement measurement technology and uses values from your individual past instead. This ensures that you get accurate information about your water consumption even when you’re not wearing your VIITA Watch.

Regeneration

If this value is high you are well regenerated and ready for the next workout, but if it is low you should rather skip your workout.

Stress

If this value is high, you are currently under a lot of stress. Not only physical stress but also psychological stress is recognized.

Recommendation

Endurance Workout

Unlike the VIITA Hybrid HRV, the VIITA Active HRV shows you the exact pulse range for your optimal endurance training.

Strength Training

Break: NO TRAINING

Your body is not ideally regenerated. Better take a break.

Easy: EASY TRAINING

Training is done with relatively little weight. Per exercise you should make about 15-25 repetitions and not more than 50% of your maximum performance. You should complete 1-2 sets and take a break of about 90-120 seconds between sets. For example, if you are able to do a 100kg bench press repetition, then you should not take more than 50kg for light training.

Normal: NORMAL TRAINING

In normal training, your target is 8-15 repetitions per set. The intensity should be 60-70% of your maximum (in the example from above this would be 60-70 kg for the bench press). Put in 2-3 sets per exercise and 1-2 exercises per muscle group with a break of about 60-90 seconds between sets.

Hard: HARD TRAINING

With hard training your goal is to achieve a strong training stimulus. Your target is 6-12 repetitions per set. The intensity should be 70-80% of your maximum (in the example from above this would be 70-80 kg for the bench press). Put in 2-3 sets per exercise and 2 exercises per muscle group with approx. 60-90 seconds break between the sets.

Proper WARM-UP is extremely important to prevent injuries! To warm up, use about 20-30% of your maximum power and do 10-15 repetitions with this weight before starting the actual workout. Warm up must be performed separately for each muscle group immediately before the exercise to be performed.


Here’s what I want you to note:
The training recommendation gives information about which training your body tolerates on the basis of your general regeneration. If you have a localized muscle soreness, it can occur that this does not or hardly affect your regeneration. In this case we would also advise against training the affected muscle groups. If you are injured you should not follow the training recommendations of your VIITA Watch.

Activity

Your VIITA Active HRV can track up to 19 sports. Values such as heart rate variability, the duration of your activity, distance covered, calories burned and water consumed are stored. These differ depending on the type of sport and are stored in the internal memory of your VIITA Active for up to one month. As soon as you synchronize your smartwatch with the  VIITA App, the stored training units are transferred to the  VIITA App.

In the  VIITA App you can then view the exact progress of your training sessions. Both detailed in day view and as an overview in week view. You can change the pre-selected sports with the  VIITA App. You can find out how here.

If you want to pause or cancel an activity press the upper button. Tap the screen of your watch for 1 second to confirm the pause. This ensures that you cannot interrupt an activity unintentionally.

My Challenge

The My Challenge feature allows you to check if you have improved in an activity. It shows you in real time whether you are ahead or lagging behind. You’re competing against your previous performance level, so to speak. In this challenge, the distance covered is also compared using GPS.

You can access My Challenge either via the Quick Start button or via the ACTIVITY TYPE menu.

MyChallenge via quick start:

1.Press the button below to activate your VIITA Active smartwatch.

2.Press the button below once more to access MyChallenge.
3.Select Running or Cycling, the selected mode is highlighted.
4.Select the planned route length. Tap NEXT.

5.Choose the planned duration of your activity. Then tap START. Your activity starts automatically after a 5 second countdown.

Tip: If you want to repeat your last challenge you can press the lower button 3 times. Your VIITA Active HRV automatically takes over the values of your last challenge. So you can get started right away.

Pro-Tip: If you don’t want to lose time at the start but have completed another challenge in the end, you can do the following:

1.Enter the distance and the duration of the activity.
2.Tap START.
3.Cancel the challenge, no matter if you save or delete the activity.
4.At the start of your next MyChallenge the values are preset and you can start right away.

MyChallenge via the menu:

1.Wipe from the home screen to the left until you reach the ACTIVITY TYPE menu.

2.Tap on CHALLENGE START (orange ring).
3.Select Running or Cycling, the selected mode is highlighted.
4.Select the planned route length. Tap NEXT.

5.Choose the planned duration of your activity. Then tap START. Your activity starts automatically after a 5 second countdown.

My Sets

With the My Sets function you can make your interval or strength training even more efficient. In strength training, your VIITA Active HRV uses unobtrusive vibrations to remind you when your sentence is over and when the next one begins. In interval training you also know when the interval is over and the next begins. This way you rarely have to look at your watch during training and can fully concentrate on your exercises.

The exercise time and pause time can be configured individually via the  VIITA App.

To start My Sets tap SET in the ACTIVITY TYPE menu.

Find My Phone

Once you’ve moved your phone, you can easily find it again with the Find My Phone feature. To do this, tap Find My Phone in the SETUP menu. If your smartphone is near you, it will start to ring.

For Find My Phone to work, the following requirements must be met:

  • The smartphone must be turned on
  • Bluetooth must be enabled on your phone
  • Smartphone and smartwatch must be paired
  • The phone must be within Bluetooth range (8m)

Notifications

Your VIITA Active HRV is able to display notifications received on your smartphone. The content of the message is shown, from which service (Facebook, Whatsapp, E-mail etc.) it comes and who the sender is. Incoming calls are also displayed on your VIITA Active HRV.

Tap ALL to mark the message as read. If you have received several messages tap NEXT to go to the next message.

Tap IGNORE to reject the call.

Please note:

To use push notifications on your smartwatch, you must allow your smartphone to display banner notifications. Find out how this works at Apple here. You must also enable notifications in the  VIITA App.
