In this paper we discuss the use of low-complexity interfaces to encourage users to increase their level of physical activity. We present ActivMON a wearable device capable of representing a user's individual activity level, and that of a group, using an ambient display. We discuss the results of a preliminary usability evaluation of ActivMON.
