Get Fit(bit) in 2016
The Innovation Centre now has a Fitbit Charge HR available for hire for schools wanting to use up to date technology to generate useful data for maths or science lessons. The Fitbit is a lightweight watch that records heart rate, number of steps taken, number of flights of stairs ascended and many more parameters and delivers the data automatically to your PC or your mobile device.
In this example you can see my heart rate and calories burned in a badminton game! It also told me that I had ran 3km and taken over 3,000 steps in that time period! Yes I’m almost Olympic standard!
We think that this a great device to demonstrate technology bee used in an effective way and would be great for you to use in school. I you would like to borrow the device please contact us at the Innovation Centre on 01274 434818
