Physical activity is one of the most basic human functions and essential for physical and mental health and has major beneficial effect on chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, etc. Awareness of this condition has been one of the focuses for researching over recent years. One common way for making this awareness is monitoring the number of steps taken by a person and comparing it with the minimum amount of steps s/he needs. In this paper we suggest that instead of this, heartbeat can be monitored to aware physical activity.
