It looks like it recorded your walking workout, but if it doesn't seem accurate you might want to adjust where you're wearing the device.

- If you wear on your shoe, make sure it is flat on your laces and parallel to ground with the open end of the clip pointing towards the toe. Also make sure it is firmly clipped and not flopping around - we find its best to try to get it through at least 2-3 laces (which really snugs it down).

-If wearing on your bra, try with clip to the skin and the tracker to the outside. If that doesn’t work, try wearing it on the cross strap (not the shoulder strap) towards the side of the body near the underarm. We have seen this give better results for some body types as it helps to hold the tracker securely to the body. But we would still recommend trying it on the shoe or waist first if possible.

- If you wear on your waist, make sure the open end of the clip is pointing towards the ground. Also try to wear as close the outside of your hip as possible.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

I used the treadmill today for 36 min. Spark Activity Tracker says I have no workout mins. or calories? Shouldn't some of that be counted as workout? Treadmill says 190 (regular cals.) tracker says 100?????? Advice please:)
