Features

The Philips Activa features TempoMusic which is the proprietary software developed by Philips and built into Activa that automatically matches music to a user's workout pace. TempoMusic analyzes a user's music library, and stores a detailed set of characteristics for each song. These detail include that which is related to tempo, which helps choose songs according to work out speed. The Philips Activa also features audio feedback which allows users to check their work out status without breaking their stride, and works in tandem with Philips DirectLife which was launched in October 2009. Philips DirectLife is a fitness program that is customizable, and records a person's daily movements via a wearable Activity Monitor. Once recorded, information is transferred to a personal web page that keeps track of progress. Users are guided by a personal coach who helps them set goals, receive individualized feedback, and obtain advice on making healthy lifestyle changes.
