how striiv works
About 5 centimeters)
Screen with touch interface.
There is a power button at one end of the device and two other buttons--home and back --
Below the screen.
And a tiny port. USB cable.
The cable allows you to charge lithium from Striiv
Ion battery and sync the data on the device to the computer.
There is a circular hole at the bottom of the Striiv where you can insert a key-Ring attachment.
The key ring is locked in place in a fast and twisted way.
Press the ring attachment into Striiv and loosen it in another way.
You can also use the belt
You can clip the attachment if you like.
Or you can throw it in your wallet or bag as well.
There\'s a 500 in Striiv-megahertz dual-
Core processor, solid
State-of-the-art memory chip, speedometer, and three-
The accelerometer is a measuring device for detecting speed changes.
If you have studied physics, you will know that there are two components of speed: speed and direction.
Objects moving in a specific direction at a specific speed have a stable speed.
If the direction or speed of movement changes, the object will accelerate or slow down.
How can Striiv detect these changes?
It uses solid-
A state gyro and proprietary technology called TruMotion.
The gyro contains a tiny weight that moves slightly when the device goes through an acceleration change.
On both sides of this weight are two small plates that store potential energy.
We call it capacitance.
When the weight moves to one board and away from the other, the capacitance of both boards changes ---
Increasing the gap will reduce the capacitance of the board, and closing the gap will increase the capacitance of the board.
The processor of Striiv detected this change and interpreted the fluctuation as mobile, registering a step.
If you walk or run, the frequency and intensity of the steps will be notified to Striiv.
The height gauge in Striiv allows it to be detected when you climb the stairs.
The timer detects changes in altitude by recording changes in air pressure.
At a lower altitude, the pressure will be greater. -
The atmosphere pressed down from above is more.
At a higher altitude, the pressure is lower.
You may not notice the changes in atmospheric pressure that you experienced while climbing the stairs, but a sensitive height meter can record subtle changes.
Walking, running and climbing stairs are the key points of Striiv.
But perhaps the real story behind this move is how it uses games and altruism to encourage you to exercise.
