Calibrating Your Tracker

UP Move accurately tracks data based on height, weight, gender, and age information entered in the app and synced to the band at initial setup. There is no additional configuration required. Calibrating your UP Move is an optional process that refines your tracker's ability to measure distance traveled. 

Plan an Activity for Calibration

The precise distance traveled needs to be known when calibrating the band. We recommend mapping out the route you’ll take in advance, or going to a local track where you can know exactly how far you’ve walked or run.

Once your route is planned and you’re ready to start, put your tracker in stopwatch mode by pressing the tracker button twice, holding on the second press until the sun icon flashes three times and the tracker vibrates.

Complete the walk or run on the planned route and then return the tracker to awake mode by pressing the button until the sun icon flashes and the tracker vibrates. Next, press the mode button once more to prompt your tracker to connect and sync with the app.

Best Practices

  • Know the exact distance of the activity used to calibrate the band, and perform the activity on level ground, avoiding inclines and hills.
  • Walk or run at a consistent pace during the calibration activity. Activities logged at an inconsistent pace may not be eligible for calibration. 
  • Calibrate more than once. Performing this process a few times refines the calibration process for increased accuracy.
