Tracking moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and activity data for an entire class has never been so easy! Instead of using a dock or cords to upload data, our FITstep Stream pedometer uses ANT+ wireless technology for instant and simultaneous data transmission for up to 50 students! You can even track data for an entire class by buying pedometers in bulk! Simply press the button on the front of the pedometer, and data immediately passes through the HUB and into the updated FITstep Software for instant collection and analysis. Students can transmit data from their pedometers at any time as long as they're within 10' of the HUB. Protective rubber on the top and edges of the Stream case absorbs impact in the event of accidental drops and protects the pedometer from everyday wear and tear.
The FITstep Stream has all the same great functionalities and features as our FITstep Pro Pedometer including step count, activity time tracking, and MVPA measurement. Digitally-precise technology provides an accurate step count even if the pedometer isn't upright. A delayed-counting function better tracks true activity time, and prevents an inflated step total, by only counting consecutive steps taken after activity begins, and not individual steps taken in preparation.
To setup MVPA measurement, users follow the included instructions to calculate their steps-per-minute (SPM) threshold and enter it into the Stream Pedometer (between 80 and 160 SPM). When the user exceeds that threshold, the pedometer times and records it as MVPA.
A large, easy-to-read graph showing the user's MVPA intensity and duration is continuously displayed on the pedometer screen, making it easy for students and teachers to track progress of 60 minutes of MVPA a day as recommended by the Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE America). The FITstep Stream also features a low-battery indicator for advanced warning.
Packs include 15, 30, or 100 pedometers, one HUB with FITstep Software, and storage cases. Create your own system by purchasing individual monitors and the HUB with FITstep Software separately. Software is free to download HERE and compatible with PC computers. Mac compatibility coming soon.
