What Is PAI & How It Works?
PAI is a short form for Personal Activity Intelligence. It is a feature that analyzes your heart rate during exercises and activities and then provides you the score accordingly. This feature is developed by PAI Health Inc., a software-focused health care company. In 2018, Zepp Health formed a partnership with PAI Health to bring this feature to its smartwatch users. And if you do not know already then let me tell you, Zepp Health is the parent company of Amazfit.
Now let us see how it works. It gives you the weekly target of 100 points to achieve and the overall score is generated based on the last 7 days of exercise and activities. You have to achieve PAI points by doing different activities and exercises throughout the week.
The PAI score is based on the different physical parameters which include gender, age, resting heart rate, maximum heart rate, etc. Therefore the activity that one needs to perform to achieve certain PAI points will be different for different people. And the points are only awarded if you perform the activity by maintaining a certain heart rate for a certain amount of time. If your heart rate was not in the required range during the activity then you will not get any PAI points.
How To Activate PAI In Amazfit?
By default, the PAI will come activated with your Amazfit watch. All you have to do is set up your Amazfit watch and you will be good to go. Other than this you do not have to do anything to activate it however you can increase its tracking accuracy so that it measures your exercises accurately.
Is Amazfit Not Recording PAI Points Even After Working Out Intensively?
Sometimes it might happen that you are doing intensive activities but still, PAI is not awarding you any point. This can be because PAI is not able to track your exercises accurately. To make PAI able to record your exercises and activities with utmost accuracy, you need to increase the frequency of automatic heart tracking and enable the active heart rate monitoring of your watch. You can do this from your Amazfit watch as well as from the Zepp app on the smartphone.
Note: The steps to activate PAI are the same for Android as well as iOS smartphones.
Steps To Increase The Accuracy Of PAI Through Watch
Step 1: Go to the menu (app drawer) and open the PAI app on your smartwatch.
Step 2: Scroll down and tap on Settings.
Step 3: Next, scroll down and open the Auto Heart Rate Monitor option.
Step 4: Choose the frequency for monitoring automatic heart rates. The higher the frequency of measuring the heart rate the more accurately PAI will be able to monitor your activities. So it is advisable to set the frequency at 1 min but do remember that the higher the frequency the lower battery life you will get.
Step 5: Go back.
Step 6: Scroll down and toggle on the Active Heart Rate Monitor button. When it is turned on then your watch will increase the heart rate monitoring frequency during your workouts.
Steps To Increase The Accuracy Of PAI Through Smartphone

What To Do If Amazfit PAI Is Not Working?
There can be different cases where you must be facing issues with the working of PAI. Let us look at these cases one by one and what you need to do in each case to resolve them.
Case 1: Watch Is Not Tracking The Workout
Remember that PAI will only get activated once your watch starts tracking your activities and exercises. If your Amazfit watch is not tracking any activity then PAI will not track anything either. So make sure to turn on the workout mode on your smartwatch before you start working out.
Case 2: Watch Is Tracking The Workout But PAI Is Not Tracking
If your watch is tracking your workouts and PAI is not able to do the same then you will have to restart your Amazfit watch. The issue should get resolved after restarting the watch but if it does not get solved then you will have to factory reset your Amazfit watch.
Case 3: Not Able To See PAI analytics in the Zepp App
If PAI is working on the watch but you are not able to see the data on your smartphone then there may be a connection issue. Make sure the watch is connected to your smartphone.
If the watch is connected to the smartphone but still you are not able to see the data then force close the Zepp app and restart it again.
