HOW TO USE THE HEART RATE MONITOR

HOW TO PUT ON THE HEART RATE MONITOR

The heart rate monitor consists of two components: the chest strap and the sensor unit (see the drawing below). Insert the tab on one end of the chest strap through one of the holes in the sensor unit. Press the end of the sensor unit under the buckle on the chest strap. The tab should be almost flush with the front of the sensor unit.

Next, wrap the heart rate moni-

tor around your chest and

attach the other end of the chest strap to the sensor unit. Adjust the length of the

chest strap, if necessary. The

heart rate moni-

tor should be under your clothing, tight against your skin, and as high under the pectoral muscles or breasts as is comfortable. Make sure that the logo on the sensor unit is facing forward and is right-side-up.

Pull the sensor unit away from your body a few inches and locate the two electrode areas on the inner side. The electrode areas are the areas covered by shallow ridges. Using saline solution such as saliva or contact lens solution, wet both electrode areas. Return the sensor unit to a position against your chest.

HEART RATE MONITOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Thoroughly dry the heart rate monitor after each use. The heart rate monitor is activated when the electrode areas are wetted and the heart rate monitor is put on; the heart rate monitor shuts off when it is removed and the electrode areas are dried. If the heart rate monitor is not dried after each

use, it may remain activated longer than necessary, draining the battery prematurely.

Store the heart rate monitor in a warm, dry place. Do not store the heart rate monitor in a plastic bag or other container that may trap moisture.

Do not expose the heart rate monitor to direct sunlight for extended periods of time; do not expose it to temperatures above 122° Fahrenheit (50° Celsius) or below 14° Fahrenheit (-10° Celsius).

Do not excessively bend or stretch the sensor unit when using or storing the heart rate monitor.

Clean the sensor unit using a damp cloth—never use alcohol, abrasives, or chemicals. The chest strap may be hand washed and air dried.

HEART RATE MONITOR TROUBLE-SHOOTING

The instructions on the following pages explain how the heart rate monitor is used with the console. If the letters “PLS” appear in the PULSE/CALORIES display or if the displayed heart rate is excessively high or low, try the steps below.

Make sure that the heart rate monitor is under your clothing, tight against your skin, and as high under the pectoral muscles or breasts as is comfortable. The logo on the sensor unit must be facing forward and be right-side-up. Note: If the heart rate monitor does not function when positioned as described, try moving it slightly lower or higher on your chest.

Use saline solution such as saliva or contact lens solution to wet the two electrode areas on the sensor unit. If heart rate readings do not appear until you begin perspiring, re-wet the electrode areas.

As you walk or run on the treadmill, position yourself near the center of the walking belt. For the console to display heart rate readings, the user must be within arm’s length of the console.

The heart rate monitor is designed to work with people who have normal heart rhythms. Heart rate reading problems may be caused by medical conditions such as premature ventricular contractions (pvcs), tachycardia bursts, and arrhythmia.

The operation of the heart rate monitor can be affected by magnetic interference caused by high power lines or other sources. If it is suspected that this is a problem, try relocating the treadmill.

The CR2032 battery may need to be replaced.

OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT

THE PERFORMANT LUBETM WALKING BELT

Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with PERFORMANT LUBETM, a high-performance lubricant.

IMPORTANT: Never apply silicone spray or other substances to the walking belt or the walking platform. Such substances will deteriorate the walking belt and cause excessive wear.

HOW TO PLUG IN THE POWER CORD

DANGER: Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in an increased risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the product—if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by sudden voltage changes in your home’s power. Voltage surges, spikes, and noise interference can result from weather conditions or from other appliances being turned on or off. To decrease the possibility of your treadmill being damaged, always use a surge suppressor with your treadmill (see drawing 1 at the right).

Surge suppressors are sold at most hardware stores and department stores. Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that is UL 1449 listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). The surge suppressor must have a UL suppressed voltage rating of 400 volts or less and a minimum surge dissipation of 450 joules. The surge suppressor must be electrically rated for 120 volts AC and 15 amps.

This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. Plug the power cord into a surge suppressor, and plug the surge suppressor into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

This product is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in drawing 1 below. A temporary adapter that looks like the adapter illustrated in drawing 2 may be used to connect the surge suppressor to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in drawing 2 if a properly grounded outlet is not available.

The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet (drawing 1) can be installed by a qualified electrician.

The green-colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used it must be held in place by a metal screw. Some 2-pole receptacle outlet box covers are not grounded. Contact a qualified electrician to determine if the outlet box cover is grounded before using an adapter.

Note: If there is a thin sheet of clear plastic on the face of the console, remove it.

CAUTION: To reduce the risk of serious injury, read the following precautions before operating the console.

Do not stand on the walking belt when turning on the power or starting the walking belt.

Always wear the clip (see part “O” in the drawing above) while operating the treadmill. If the key is pulled from the console, the walking belt will stop.

The treadmill is capable of high speeds. Adjust the speed in small increments.

The heart rate monitor is not a medical device. Various factors may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The heart rate monitor is intended only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general.

If you have heart problems, or if you are over 60 years of age and have been inactive, do not use the two pulse driven programs. If you are taking medication regularly, consult your physician to find whether the medication will affect your exercise heart rate.

To reduce the risk of electric shock, keep the console dry, avoid spilling liquids on the console, and use only a sealed water bottle.

FEATURES OF THE CONSOLE

The treadmill console offers an impressive array of features designed to make your workouts more effective.

When the console is in the manual mode, the speed and incline of the treadmill can be changed with a touch of a button. As you exercise, the console will display instant exercise feedback—you can watch your progress on the LED “track,” while the four displays show your heart rate, the number of calories burned, the incline, workout time, speed, pace, distance, and laps completed.

Eight preset programs are also offered: three incline programs automatically control the incline of the treadmill as they guide you through effective workouts; three speed programs automatically control the speed of the treadmill; and two pulse driven programs automatically control the speed and the incline of the treadmill to keep your heart rate within a predetermined range during your workouts.

The console also features two custom programs that allow you to create your own workout programs and store them in the console’s memory for future use.

To use the manual mode, follow the steps beginning on page 10. To use an incline program or a speed program, see page 12. To use a pulse driven program, see page 13. To create a custom program, see page 14. To use a custom program, see page 15.

Note: The console can display speed and distance in either miles or kilometers (see SPEED/PACE DISPLAY on page 11). For simplicity, all instructions in this section refer to miles.
