🤷🏼‍♂️ What is Calibration?

Calibration is a way to “show” our AI how you move, and can increase exercise detection accuracy significantly for every exercise you calibrate.
The process to calibrate is simple. Using the Train Fitness app, you can film 🎥 your sets during a workout. This data is then processed by our AI models, and helps improve the detection of this exercise for you by up to 30%!
If you are finding that specific exercises are not as accurate for auto-detection as you’d like, calibration is a great tool to help boost the detection accuracy of these exercises!

You can calibrate any given exercise type as many times as you’d like, but for best results we recommend calibrating 3 sets per exercise, 8-10 reps per set.

🎬 Quick Start Guide

Getting Calibration Mode Set Up

Calibrations are performed directly from the Train Fitness app. To get started, simply... [will update]

Calibrating your First Exercise

Click the camera icon on your Train watch app on the bottom right > Press “start” > Make sure your phone camera is positioned to capture your entire body when you perform the exercise > Count down should start.
When count down is completed, start the exercise and perform 8 - 12 reps of the exercise > Click “finish” on your watch > Confirm the exercise is accurate > If not, manually add the name of the exercise and press “save”.
You should see “recording pending” on your phone > once you see “recording saved” on your phone, that set is saved.
You’re now ready to move on to the next set. Complete 3 sets total of 8 - 12 reps per exercise.
Please review the guide above for all steps and screenshots if you have any questions.

Calibration works best when the sets are as realistic as possible. We suggest using a challenging, but comfortable weight.

🙋‍♀️ Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I calibrate?

Calibration is a great way to boost the auto-detection accuracy for a given exercise, and personalize the AI detection further specifically to your needs. This way you can spend less time adjusting the predicted exercise or rep count, and more time focusing on your workout!

Which exercises should I calibrate?

You can calibrate any exercise you want that is currently in the Train Fitness exercise catalogue.

How many calibration videos should I send of a single exercise?

You should do 3 sets (8-10 reps) of each exercise to finish a calibration. While you’re welcome to do more, we only require 3 sets of 8-10 reps to see improvements.

Where should I put the camera?

Place the camera in such a way so your full body and the Apple Watch are visible. The most important part is ensuring the Apple Watch is in the frame for the entire video segment.
