WATCH US GET FITSchools & colleges programme
Working in partnership with the Jamie Carragher Watch us get fit initiative the programme motivates staff, students and their families to be more active.
We encourage kids to become more active by helping them crush their daily goals. Healthy competition in a nurturing environment gives pupils a head start to their active lifestyles developing a love for sport and movement.
Contact Hours: M-F: 9am – 5pm
Using tech to motivate Sports and PE participation helps Schools to develop programmes that engage students and parents in the fight against in-activity.
Developed with Garmin the programme uses the discrete Garmin vivoki fitness tracker to monitor and report students steps, active minutes, distance and calories burned during the school day.

” It is great to support the Watch us get fit initiative and see the positive impact it is making to the children”

Track & reward student daily activity
The Garmin vivoki is asmall discrete tracker that students can wear on their torso, waist or slip into a pocket.
It is water resistant and automatically tracks and reports steps, distance, active minutes and calories burned throughout the school day.
The vivohub 2 remote hub syncs simultaneously with up to 30 Garmin vivokis within 10 metres of the hub.
The hubs are located in high traffic areas and operate wirelessly ensuring accurate realtime data syncs.
Activity data is displayed on the school administrator dashboard by student, class or whole school.
The activity data is only visible to the designated school administrator and cannot be accessed without permission.
Our data reporting module provides the activity data in raw data format for easy import into analytical programmes.
The data can be uploaded or emailed weekly by class making it easy to bespoke and import as required.

Schools & Organizations
Schools across Merseyside, London and Dublin are all part of our network motivating over 5000 students to move more. We are adding more schools every week and aim to hit our target of 1000 primary Schools in the network by the end of 2020.
Lead by James Olsen and Sean Williams the organisation is part of the Jamie Carragher accademy.
The receiver hubs are easy to set up but will require some admin time from your IT support team to ensure that the school firewall is configured to allow the vivohub 2 to be added to the school wifi system. This process can be remotely completed.
The vivokis are discrete, robust and water proof trackers that do not require charging. Battery life is 6 months with normal use.
There are currently several case studies available as well as a newly commissioned pilot programme in the south west looking at the effectiveness of activity on childrens mental health. For more information get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
