The most common questions about service and principles of iWatt.
iWatt is a Slovak application that aims to support active lifestyle and spread positive energy. It allows its users to transform their energy from movement into virtual energy - iWatts. Users can use this energy to support their favorite sports clubs or replace iWatts in Energyshop.
You can earn iWatts for various physical activities measured with the tracker in the iWatt app, alternatively also through the Strava App (iOS, Android), Apple Health (iOS), Google Fit (Android) or Garmin Connect (Android), which is possible to link with the iWatt app directly. When you measure activity in the app, click the "Sync" button (located under the "Action Button" in the lower right corner of the screen) and iWatts will be added to your battery. Depending on the intensity of the movement, the user then obtains the appropriate amount of energy. Activities need to be exchanged for iWatts on the day you complete them. The only activity for which we will credit you iWatts in the last max. 7 days are steps.
To calculate iWatts, we use a rather complex formula, in which we take into account the type of activity, their duration, the distance and calories in indoor activities. Better performance means more iWatts.
iWatts are stored in the user's account in a virtual battery. Same as batteries in everyday life, this one discharges over time. Specifically, 1/90 of your current value is deducted from your account each day.
It all depends on the application you are using to measure motion. You can currently get iWatts for these activities:
iWatt : Running, Cycling, Hiking, Cross-country skiing
FOOD : Running, Cycling, E-Bike, Handcycle, Walking, Hiking, Cross-country skiing (Nordic Skiing), Snowboarding, Alpine Skiing, Backcountry Skiing, Swimming (Swim)
Google Fit : Running, Cycling, Walking, Hiking, Cross-country skiing, Snowboarding, Skiing, Swimming, other Indoor activities (28 types)
Garmin Connect : Running, Cycling, Walking, Hiking, Cross-country skiing, Snowboarding, Skiing, Swimming
Apple Health : Running, Cycling, Walking, Cross-country skiing, Snowboarding, Skiing, Swimming, other Indoor activities (19 types)
Step 1 - Make sure you have Strava app installed and if not, download it from Google Play or the Apple store.
Step 2 - Open iWatt and click Manage Sync in your profile. Select Strava and then Settings.
Step 3 - Click the connect button and follow the Strava application instructions.
Step 4 - After setting up the connection, your Strava status will change to connected. Check it in the Sync Management section of the iWatt app.
Step 5 - From now on you have the applications connected. After the activity measured using the Strava application, just click on the "Action Button" in the lower right corner of the screen in the iWatt application and then to "Synchronize." The application exchanges activity data for iWatts.
Step 1 - Make sure you have the Garmin Connect app installed, and if not, download it from Google Play (iOS link available soon).
Step 2 - Create Garmin Connect account and connect your watch or bracelet with it if you want.
Step 3 - Open iWatt and click Manage Sync in your profile. Select Garmin Connect and click Settings.
Step 4 - Click the Connect button and follow the Garmin Connect instructions.
Step 5 - After setting up a link, your Garmin Connect status will change to connected. Check it in the Sync Management section of the iWatt app.
Step 6 - From now on you have the applications connected. After the activity measured using Garmin Connect, simply click on the "Action Button" in the lower right corner of the screen in iWatt and then on "Sync". The application exchanges activity data for iWatts.
In order to exchange: treadmill, stationary bike training, cranks, squats or other exercises that you do at home or in the fitness center for iWatts, you must first measure them and record them in your mobile application. You can use a smart watch, a smart bracelet or the application in your mobile directly for the measurement. It is up to you which application you use, but it is important to connect it with the applications that we currently use as a data source and are directly linked to the iWatt application. These are the Strava, Google Fit, Garmin Connect, and Apple Health. After each workout / activity you record in your app, just visit the iWatt app and start Sync via "Action Button". The principle of exchanging movement for iWatts is different from outdoor activities. We use calorie record for that. The most important condition is that you have to have your application properly connected to iWatt.
In order to protect the principles of fair play and at the same time ensure a symbiosis between professional athletes and active users, when exchanging activities for iWatts, we apply the so-called Daily limit rule. If the total amount of a user's daily activities lasts longer than 4 hours, iWatts will no longer count for other activities. Our goal is not to discourage those who really do it, but to protect the principles of the application from attempts to fraudulently make iWatts.
You can also measure your activities directly in the iWatt application via the iWatt tracker function (you can start it by clicking on the + action button). But you can only measure running, cycling, skiing and hiking. You can't connect it to a watch or a bracelet, so your smarthphone must have been turned on when measuring and have a stable access to mobile data or wifi in order to be able to measure the entire course of physical activity.
