  • Steel
  • Steel HR / Steel HR Sport
  • Go
  • Pulse HR

Note that the Withings Pulse does not support this feature.

Which activities are recognized?

For now, your tracker is able to detect and learn these activities:

  • Walking
  • Running
  • Cycling (Steel HR / Steel HR Sport, Pulse HR, Withings Move, Move ECG only)
  • Table Tennis
  • Squash
  • Badminton
  • Fitness
  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
  • Dance
  • Boxing

Note that we are working on adding more activity recognition coming soon.

What happens if I do an activity not yet supported by automatic recognition?

No problem, you can still log over 30 additional activities manually. Note that each time you log your moves, you help the algorithm learn to recognize these activities, so that we can bring you more automatic activity recognition in the near future.

Manually log your activity

You simply need to log an activity to teach your tracker how you move. It will soon automatically recognize and log that activity for you.


Follow the instructions below so that your tracker detects automatically your activity:

  • Perform any of the 10 newly supported activities while wearing your activity tracker. You will then see “New activity detected” on your Timeline.
  • Save the session, choose which activity it was, and adjust the intensity. It will now appear in your Timeline.
  • Repeat this process 2-3 times for each activity. This helps your tracker learn your specific moves, so it can automatically recognize them the next time around.

Set a weekly goal

  • Each time you perform a new activity for the first time (whether it’s automatically detected or logged manually), you will see a congratulations screen in the Health Mate app.
  • From that screen, you can select ‘Set a goal,’ and set how many days per week you want to perform that activity, so you have some accountability.
  • Each time you reach any weekly activity goal, you will see a congratulatory animation in your Timeline.
