Being inactive has a negative impact on your blood circulation, metabolism and energy expenditure. After 55 minutes of being inactive your device gives you an Inactivity Alert which reminds you to add active breaks to your daily routines. If you continue being inactive for more than one hour, you will see an inactivity stamp in your daily activity data. You won't get any Inactivity alerts during night time.
