Moves is a new way to understand how much physical exercise you get—just by keeping your phone in a pocket or bag. The app automatically recognizes activities (walking, running, cycling, transportation), routes and places. The data is visualized on a map and as a daily storyline that encourages the user to take small steps towards more healthy habits and lifestyle. There is no need to start and stop the app as it runs continuously in the background.
Moves is based on a sophisticated technology stack that collects sensor and location data from the user's mobile phone. The system analyzes the data by using the latest machine learning techniques, and presents it back to the user in a meaningful and actionable manner.
