BREAK PRO does not remind me to take exercise breaks. What should I do?

Android and iOS: During the installation, the BREAK PRO application asks for your permission to send notifications. To let the application remind you to exercise, please ”allow all the notifications”. Notification settings can be controlled in the device settings and can be changed later according to your preferences. After allowing notifications, please restart your device.

Android and iOS: If you reject the notification 64 times without launching a single Break Exercise, the application will not remind you of the Break Exercise until you click the E app icon on the phone, after which the notifications will be reactivated.

Android, iOS, Windows and macOS: If you have disabled the Timing function as ”Timing off” in the Settings page of the application, the timing will not work. You can enable them again by clicking the E app icon on your phone/desktop and opening the Settings page where you can specify the intervals or times.

Windows: If you have several applications open at the same time, the reminder popup may not appear on top of the other windows. Thus, the reminder may be lost behind other applications. The notification will however appear a few times at the bottom right corner before disappearing. In addition, the E icon will flash. On Windows 10, you will also hear a sound in connection to the popup. The reminder will be significantly easier to notice if you maximize the application window to cove ”full screen”. You can adjust the size of the window by dragging the edges or clicking the maximize button at the top.

How often should people working in a seated position and with VDUs take exercise breaks?

According to current recommendations, you should take several short exercise breaks over the course of the day. During static work, our metabolism and circulation decrease. The negative impact of a static working position on our body can be observed after just 20 minutes. It is recommended to punctuate your work with short exercise breaks every 30 minutes. This also increases the circulation in your brain and improves your alertness and efficiency. Do note however that engaging in exercise every 45–90 minutes also has significant health benefits compared to doing nothing.

How can I close the BREAK PRO application after watching a video?

Android and iOS: BREAK PRO is closed by using the standard buttons of the device. For example, on iOS you can use the home button to switch applications directly, in which case the application keeps running in the background with the break exercise notifications active. If the application is not closed completely, it will open more quickly the next time. If you want to close the application completely on iOS, you can double click the home button, swipe left or right to find the BREAK PRO app and close it by swiping the preview screen up.

Windows: The application is closed by clicking the close button at the top right corner of the application window. 

How long does it take to download the videos?

Downloading the videos is dependent on network speed; with a fast connection you can download the videos in a few seconds. Please note however that the video is only downloaded to your device on first viewing. After this, there will be no delay as the video is played back from your device.
