What is PAI in smartwatches and bracelets

Therefore, researcher Ulrik Wisloff developed a system to help people manage your own health with an easy-to-understand activity tracker: PAI, a tool that displays simple data that anyone can understand and that’s enough to help you stay fit.

Fitness calculator lets you know your body age. The lower your fitness age, the better your body will be. With PAI, you can train to a lower fitness age and similarly reduce your risk of disease.

PAI generates a score based on the latter 7 days of activity. At the end of the week, the ultimate goal to be achieved is yes maintain 100 PAI or more, the minimum to achieve better cardiovascular health. You’ll earn PAI points by exercising, whatever it is, because it’s getting your heart rate up that counts. Anything that gets your body moving and your heart pumping matters. The higher your heart rate and the longer your heart rate, the more PAI points you earn.

This result is based on the physical data of each person (age, gender, maximum heart rate, resting heart rate and body response to exercise). So the activity everyone needs to reach their 100 goal is different for each of us. According to Practitioner Research, when testing this method among thousands of users, those who scored 100 PAI in the 1980s and 1990s lived an average of eight years longer than those with lower PAI scores.
