Launched in April 2018 in partnership with Jamie Carragher Watch Us Get Fit, this is our flagship Schools programme and is already yielding positive outcomes.
Developed for the Garmin Vivoki trackers and Vivohub 2 remote client the system tracks daily steps, active minutes, calories burned and intensity in real time during the school day with no staff admin time required.
Now rolling out across the UK the programme has already delivered impressive results in recent case studies.
Activity data is tracked in real time and displayed on customised dashboards for School administrators to view by student, class or School.
“during coaching sessions the majority of the class would jog on the spot instead of standing still – making a conscious effort to keep moving and increase their step count”
Meet the vivoki
vívokí is a small and discreet activity tracker, and students can wear it on their torso or waist, or slip it into a pocket. vívokí is water-resistant and syncs with the supplied vivohubs 2. Students activity is sent wirelessly to our hosted School platform via a wireless access point. These stations can be installed by the Schools IT department, allowing for hassle-free data uploads from students’ devices. School administrators can then view student progress on the analysis site.
The vivohub 2 wireless access point can be easily installed in school high traffic areas and can sync up to 30 students activity at the same time.

A recent case study tracked selected students over a 6 week period. They were not told about a steps target nor the incentives for the 1st 3 weeks. All activity increased in weeks 4-6 after daily goals and incentives were introduced. The results are impressive.
Best individual increase
“The qualitative and quantitative data we weekly receive are a great way to evidence our PE lessons. The data has also provided opportunities for staff to allow cross curricular work in maths and other subjects”
