How is PAI calculated?
Your total PAI score is calculated over a rolling 7 days using your heart rate and personal data. The higher your heart rate is during activity (I.E. the more intense your workout) the faster you'll earn PAI points and reach your goal of 100.
After earning PAI points during your first week, you will start to notice how the rolling 7-day window works. The PAI algorithm will replace your oldest day of PAI points (8 days ago) with your current day of PAI points.
For example, if you earned 20 PAI points on Tuesday, and today is the following Wednesday (8 days later), your 20 PAI points from Tuesday will be replaced with the points you earn today (Wednesday). This pattern of replacing your oldest day of points with you current day will continue and make up your weekly PAI score.
If you know you can't exercise on some days, you can 'bank' your points by earning more points on the days that suit you, and gain the peace of mind of knowing you're still contributing to live a longer, healthier life!
*Keep in mind, earning 50 PAI points will give you 60% of the associated health benefits, and 100 PAI will give you 100% of the benefits.
