Wireless Heart Rate Monitor

63-1520

Step One

Heart Rate Training Zone

To achieve the maximum health benefits from your workout, it is important to know your heart rate training zone. Your training zone is your maximum upper and lower heart rate (beats per minute) during exercise. Calculate your upper and lower heart rate limit using this formula:

Men: 220 – age = MHR

Women: 230 – age = MHR

Multiply your MHR by the percentages of the selected training zone. There are three training zones that are related to your MHR:

Health Maintenance Zone (70% – 60%) — The lowest training intensity. For beginners and those who want to strengthen their cardiovascular system.

Aerobic Exercise Zone (80% – 70%) — Increases strength and endurance. It works within the body’s oxygen intake capability, burns more calories, and can be maintained over a longer period of time.

Anaerobic Exercise Zone (90% – 80%) — Generates speed and power. It works at or above the body’s oxygen intake capability and builds more muscle, but cannot be maintained over a long period of time.

For example, a 30-yearold female who wants to determine her aerobic exercise zone would calculate it as follows:

230 – 30 = 200 (MHR)

200 x .80 = 160 (Upper limit)

200 x .60 = 120 (Lower limit)

Step Six

Attaching the Chest Strap

1.Prior to placing the strap next to the skin, moisten the area around the battery compartment, located inside the chest strap’s padded center. For best results, moistening should be accomplished with conductive (EKG) gel.

2.Attach and adjust the chest strap as shown so that it fits snugly below the pectoral muscles across the chest. The position of the chest strap affects its performance. In dry, cold climates, it takes the heart rate chest strap a while to function steadily. This is normal.

Effective Range

The chest strap and watch start transmitting and receiving signals once batteries are in place. Both units should be worn or mounted within an effective distance of 30-45inches. If the signals become unsteady, shorten the distance between the chest strap and watch, readjust the chest strap position, or check the batteries.

Step Seven

Activate Training Program

Put on your watch and attach your chest strap. Repeatedly press MODE untilTIMER, the current set timer, and9appear. Hold downST/SP/+ to activate the training program, and then pressST/SP/+ again to start the timer. The training program starts with a five minutewarm-upsession and your current heart rate appears. Three short beeps mark the end of thewarm-upsession. You can skip thewarm-upby holding downST/SP/+ when thewarm-upsession starts. To view the calories burned and % fat burn, pressSET at any time when the training program is activated.

You can stop the training program at any time by pressing ST/SP/+. Once it is stopped, it can be only restarted for another training session.

The training program can run in the background while using other functions (except stopwatch). TIMERflashes to indicate the training program is still active.

functions (except the training program). STW flashes to indicate

the stopwatch is still active.

Step Nine

Recalling Calories and % Fat Burned

Press SET to view the calories burned and % fat burned during exercise.

While in stopwatch mode, repeatedly press SET to view the calories burned and % fat burned after exercise.

Recalling Lap Memory

The monitor is equipped with a lap counter function. You can store up to 44 lap memories into the monitor.

While the stopwatch is running:

1.Press MEM to view the current lap number. In several seconds the monitor returns to the stopwatch view.

While the stopwatch is not running (in stopwatch mode):

1.Press SET. The lap number flashes.

2.Press ST/SP/+ to view stored laps. Repeatedly pressMEM to select the desired lap.

Care

Keep the monitor dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Use and store the monitor only in normal temperature environments. Handle the monitor carefully; do not drop it. Keep the monitor away from dust and dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
