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.
