Sufficient movement in everyday life is equally as important as regular exercise. Longer periods of physical inactivity move the metabolism heavily down. Who is almost motionless sitting too long at the desk, increases the risk for health problems - regardless of an otherwise healthy lifestyle. Thanks to the built-in acceleration sensor the Forerunner 15 detects, if you are "lazy" for longer time. On the display appears a prompt to move. The Forerunner 15 also documents all movements between running sessions: It counts the daily steps, calculates the daily distance and the burned calories. The Auto Goal function determines a personal goal set of steps, which applies it to reach anew every day. The more active you structure your everyday life even more the target increases automatically for the following days. The Forerunner 15 motivates to more exercise between the workouts and therefore it promotes health.
