NOTE: Maximum HR is the absolute maximum number of times a person’s heart can beat in one minute at the highest intensity. Once you have entered your year of birth, your device automatically sets the maximum heart rate (max. HR) using the formula 207 – (0.7 x AGE) published by the American College of Sports Medicine. If you know your real max. HR, you should adjust the automatically given value to the known value.
For information about adjusting the settings at a later time, see Chapter 13 Adjusting settings on page 24.
TIP: See the date and seconds with the time by pressing

The display returns to show only the time to save battery life, if you do not press
again after 2 minutes.
