Certification mark for Fitness Trackers

Scope:

Fitness Tracker is also known as Activity Tracker, Fitness Bracelet or Activity Bracelet. It involves devices or applications that record all fitness-related data and monitors the number of steps, distance travelled and calories burned. Some devices even provide information about the heart rate and the quality of sleep. In order to capture data in the long term, the Fitness Tracker is to be synchronized with computers or smart phones. These electronic devices are worn directly on the body and thus fall into the field of portable technology, the so-called "Wearable Technologies".

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. It demonstrates that the product has been tested and certified by the third-party organisation TÜV SÜD. The certification mark is only affixed to products that undergo inspection by TÜV SÜD Product Service and comply with the criteria quoted below.

Key words of the certification mark:

 
  • Shoes
    The certification mark is awarded to shoes certified by TÜV SÜD (see scope).
  • Production monitored

    Periodic surveillance and/or monitoring of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification that includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD Product Service verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and final product testing.

    In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured. Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will become invalid (withdrawn) and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.

  • Fit tested

    TÜV SÜD Product Service tests the shoe lasts that form the basis of shoe manufacturing for various criteria, including length and heel width. Subsequently, the interior dimensions of the prototype shoes manufactured on the basis of the lasts are verified.

  • Regular product suveillance

    At regular intervals certified products will be bought in the market to perform spot checks and verify that the product is still meeting the requirements defined on the certification mark.

  • Tested for harmful substances

    For the statement "Tested for harmful substances", TÜV SÜD tested the product for hazardous substances. The test is based on legal requirements, specific national requirements and own specifications.
