What is PAI Vitality Index in Xiaomi Mi band 5
PAI or Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) is a personal physiological activity monitor. The PAI index is based on your heart rate data, daily activity intensity, and multi-dimensional dynamic comprehensive evaluation of personal physiological data. This information is converted into a PAI score using an algorithm to recommend the level of activity required in order to maintain good health.
By maintaining daily activity or workouts, you obtain a PAI value. Xiaomi says according to HUNT fitness study research results led by Prof. Ulrik Wisloff of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology done in 35 years with 230,000 participants, keeping PAI value of 100 help you reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
PAI monitor needs continuous heart rate monitoring to be turned on.
PAI is a more accurate measure of fitness than step counting because it counts even those activities that don’t involve steps like biking, rowing, and yoga. Unlike step counting, PAI places an emphasis on what matters—heart rate.
