How to Use the Hand Pulse Sensor

The convenient hand pulse sensor allows you to measure your heart rate before you begin exercising, during your workouts, and again when you finish.

To use the hand pulse sensor, the console must be turned on. In addition, the walking belt must be moving or the time must be flashing in the main display.

To measure your heart rate, stand on

the foot rails and place your hands on the metal contacts as shown. Your palms must be resting on the upper contacts, and your fingers must be touching the lower contacts. Avoid

moving your hands. When your

pulse is detected, the PULSE indicator will flash each time your heart beats, three dashes (– – –) will appear

on the left side of the main display and your heart rate will be shown. Continue to hold the contacts for about 15 seconds for the most accurate heart rate reading.

HAND PULSE SENSOR TROUBLE-SHOOTING

Stand on the foot rails and avoid moving your hands while measuring your heart rate. Excessive movement may interfere with heart rate readings. If the hand pulse sensor is not used correctly, your heart rate will not be shown.

Do not hold the metal contacts too tightly; doing so may interfere with heart rate readings.

Continue to hold the contacts for about 15 seconds for the most accurate heart rate reading.

For optimal performance of the hand pulse sensor, keep the metal contacts clean. The contacts can be cleaned with a soft cloth—never use alcohol, abrasives, or chemicals.

How to Use the Chest Pulse Sensor

The chest pulse sensor consists of two components:

Electrode Areas

Pull the

3 sensor unit away from

your body a few inches and locate the two

electrode

areas on the inner side. Using a saline solution such as saliva or contact lens solution, wet both electrode areas. Return the sensor unit to a position against your chest.

CHEST PULSE SENSOR TROUBLE-SHOOTING

If the chest pulse sensor does not function properly, or if the displayed pulse is excessively high or low, try the trouble-shooting steps below.

Make sure that the chest pulse sensor is under your clothing, against your skin, and as high under the pectoral muscles or breasts as is comfortable. Note: If the chest pulse sensor does not function when positioned as described, try moving it slightly lower or higher on your chest.

Make sure that the logo on the sensor unit is facing forward and is right-side-up.

Each time you use the chest pulse sensor, use saline solution such as saliva or contact lens solution to wet the two electrode areas on the sensor unit (see the drawing at the top of this page). If pulse readings do not appear until you begin perspiring, re-wet the electrode areas.

As you walk or run on the treadmill, make sure that you are near the center of the walking belt and within arm’s length of the console. For the console to display pulse readings, the user must be within arm’s length of the console.

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

The operation of the chest pulse sensor can be affected by magnetic interference caused by high power lines or other sources. If it is suspected that magnetic interference may be causing a problem, try relocating the treadmill.

If the chest pulse sensor still does not function properly, test the chest pulse sensor in the following way:

Hold the chest pulse sensor and place your thumbs over the electrode areas as shown above.

Next, hold the chest pulse sensor near the console. While holding one thumb stationary, begin tapping the other thumb against the electrode area at a rate of about one tap per second. Check the pulse reading on the console.

If the chest pulse sensor does not function properly after you have followed all of the above instructions, the battery should be replaced in the following way:

Locate the battery cover on the back of the sensor unit. Insert a coin into the slot in the cover, turn the cover counterclockwise, and remove the cover.

Remove the old bat-

 

tery and insert a new

 

CR 2032 battery.

 

Make sure that the

CR 2032

battery is turned so

top. Replace the

 

battery cover and

 

turn it clockwise to

CHEST PULSE SENSOR CARE

Dry the chest pulse sensor after each use. The chest pulse sensor is activated when the electrode areas are wetted and it is put on; the chest pulse sensor shuts off when it is removed and the electrode areas are dried. If the chest pulse sensor is not dried after each use, it may remain activated longer than necessary, draining the battery prematurely.

Store the chest pulse sensor in a warm, dry place. Do not store the chest pulse sensor in a plastic bag or other container that may trap moisture.

Do not expose the chest pulse sensor to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Do not expose the chest pulse sensor to temperatures above 122°F (50°C) or below 14°F (-10°C).

Do not excessively bend or stretch the sensor unit when using or storing the chest pulse sensor.

Clean the sensor unit using a damp cloth—never use alcohol, abrasives, or chemicals.
