What is Passive Tracking?
Passive tracking allows you to use the Wellframe pedometer to track all of your physical activity passively. This means that Wellframe will automatically record all of your steps throughout the day (as long as you carry your smartphone with you!).
This means that all physical activity will be tracked in steps. When you reach your Step Goal, you'll get a notification and the task will automatically be marked as Complete on your daily checklist. PLEASE NOTE: There may be a time lag between the time you reach your goal and the time your receive the notification! Additionally, you should not notice any changes to your phone's battery life when you enable passive tracking.
- You will need iPhone 5s or newer to use this feature.
- You will need to accept new permissions to make Passive Tracking work in Wellframe.
How can I set up Passive Tracking?
Setting up this feature is quick and easy! Once you have downloaded Wellframe, open the app and tap your Physical Activity task. You'll immediately see a few prompts asking for your permission to track steps passively through Motion & Fitness Activity settings.
Tap "Next," "OK," and "Yes" — then you're done!
It's as simple as this:
Passive Tracking will work on all newer Apple iPhones, from iPhone 5s and above. (Note, If using an iPhone 5s, it must be running iOS version 8 and above - visit this article for more information about how to upgrade the software on your smartphone).
Passive tracking is not available for older Apple devices, such as iPhone 4, 4s, 5, or 5c. It will not work with iPad. If you do not have a compatible device, don't worry! You'll be able to continue using Active Tracking the same way as before, where you hit Start to begin recording your progress, and Stop when you finish your exercise.
