Automatic Pause

Automatic pause is available for some sports. Recording will pause automatically at very low speed or standstill and will resume with motion. This feature means that time spent on incidental interruptions such as stopping at a red light or to tie laces is excluded from the calculation of workout statistics.

For running sports, automatic pause detection is based on the GPS signal in combination with the device’s motion sensor. This means that pauses can be detected quickly so long as you do not trigger the motion sensor e.g. by running on the spot. For other sports, such as cycling, pause detection is based on the GPS signal only. Therefore pause detection takes a bit longer.

The speed and reliability of pause detection is highly dependent on the device hardware and GPS reception conditions.

Automatic pause is switched on in the Sportractive settings. If automatic pause is supported for the selected sport, an outline pause symbol inside a circular arrow will appear in the workout screen status line. When recording is started, the pause symbol changes to solid.

If it is switched on, automatic pause detection is activated a few seconds after recording has started. Automatic pause is overridden if recording is paused manually. It is deactivated as soon as the stop and pause buttons are unlocked via the purple lock button. Automatic pause is reactivated when the resume button is pressed to end a manual pause or when you start a new workout.

Sports with automatic pause based on GPS and motion sensing: Running, Skating, Nordic Walking, Hiking, Orienteering, Walking

Sports with automatic pause based on GPS only: Cycling, Road Bike, Mountain Biking, Cross-country skiing, Skiing, Snowboarding, Kite Surfing, Wind Surfing, Horse Riding, Motoring

Sports without automatic pause: Kayaking, Rowing, Sailing, Golfing, Swimming, Other, Crosstrainer, Indoor Cycling, Treadmill

Due to the inaccuracy of GPS technology, an apparent movement can be detected even at a standstill. It is therefore recommended that you use manual pause for longer breaks.

Equipment Tracker

This feature allows you to record details of equipment, such as running shoes, that you use in your workouts. Distance covered, duration and other parameters can be evaluated. In addition, a distance can be defined for each equipment item at which a notification is shown. For example, it is usually recommended that you change shoes after 500 km. Equipment Tracker makes that easy.

Display always on

If this feature is activated, the display stays on as long as you remain in the workout screen and the app is recording. The function may be overridden e.g. by pressing the power button. The function is active when the light icon is visible in the status line of the workout screen.

NOTE: Battery drain increases significantly when the display is on.
