  Simply press and hold the mode key (lower left hand button) for 3 seconds. You will now see the time on the top of the screen, the heart rate will now be in the middle of the screen and MHR (maximum heart rate) on the bottom of the screen shown in percent. To see your heart rate you must be wearing the transmitter belt supplied with your Fitness Trainer. To go back to the main time screen, press and hold the mode key (lower left hand button) for 3 seconds.

  Setting the Hi and Low heart rate settings based on age:

The maximum heart rate number will now be flashing to the left of the up arrow. Press the st/fwd button (upper right hand corner) to increase your maximum heart rate. Press the scan/rev button (lower right hand button) to decrease your maximum heart rate. As you do this you will see your maximum heart rate in % move accordingly with your maximum heart rate that you are entering. When you are finished press and release very quickly the lap/spl/set button (middle button below display). Your minimum heart rate will now be flashing. Press the st/fwd button (upper right hand corner) to increase your minimum heart rate. Press the scan/rev button (lower right hand button) to decrease your minimum heart rate. As you do this you will see your minimum heart rate in % move accordingly with your minimum heart rate that you are entering. Now go back to the main time screen by pressing the mode button (lower left hand corner).

Setting the target zone audible alarm:

 

To activate the audible alarm you must have the heart rate turned on. To do this hold down the mode button for 3 seconds (lower left hand button) until you see a heart and the letter MHR. Press the lap/spl/set key (middle button below display) to turn on the audible alarm. There will be a tiny icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Seeing this will let you know it is activated.

 

The Skip Function Setting Loop:

 

Your Reebok Fitness Trainer comes with a skip function setting loop. Normally to set the date, alarm and target zones you must push the lap/spl/set key (middle button below screen). This is a long process because you have to go through seconds, hours, minutes, month, date, and the day of the week. The skip function works so you can skip over all that and go directly to the date, alarm, or target zones.

 

You can use this function by pushing the lap/spl/set key (middle button below screen) until the seconds are flashing. Once they are flashing hold down the lap/spl/set button(middle button below screen)and you will jump directly to the alarm. If you hold the lap/spl/set button down again you will jump to setting your max heart rate.

 

Using Key Press heart rate:

 

This function is ideal for taking your resting heart rate or pre-exercising heart rate. Resting heart rate should be taken upon waking up and before getting out of bed in the morning. From the time of day screen, press and release the mode button (lower left hand corner) and you will see the letters STW scroll down the screen. Press the mode button again (lower left corner) and you will now see the letters TIZ scroll down the screen. Now press the mode button (lower left corner) one more time and you will see the words KEY PRESS scroll down the screen. You should see a zero and a heart icon. Locate your carotid pulse (in your neck), and press the lap/spl/set button (lower middle button below display) with each pulse in your neck. The pulse wave icon to the right of the number confirms each press. A steady value should appear after 4-8 presses of the lap/spl/set button (middle button below display).

 

Using the stop watch:

 

Stopwatch can be used in either stopwatch only or stopwatch with heart rate mode, and is operated in the same way for both modes. To enter the stop watch press and release the mode button (lower left hand button) and you will see STW scroll down the screen.

To start and stop the stopwatch press and release the st/fwd button (upper right hand button).To reset stopwatch press the st/fwd button (upper right hand corner) once and the stopwatch will stop. Then press and hold the st/fwd button for 3 seconds. The stopwatch time will begin increasing and then after 3 seconds will reset itself to zero. To use the stopwatch with heart rate press and hold the mode button (lower left hand button) while in stop watch mode. Your heart rate will appear with the stopwatch now located on the top of the screen.

 

Using the scan function:

 

1. Current session scan:

With heart rate on, a press and release of the scan/rev button (lower right hand button) starts the scan function. It shows maximum, average, and minimum heart rate with percentage of maximum heart rate for the current exercise session. Each one is shown for 3 seconds.

 

The first screen shows the maximum heart rate (MAX) since the current session began. The second screen shows the average heart rate (AVG) since the current session began. The third screen shows the minimum heart rate (MIN) since the current session began, after which the display returns to the main screen and shows the current heart rate.  A press and release of the scan/rev button (lower right hand corner) takes you to the main screen and shows current heart rate.

 

2. Previous session scan:

With Time displayed a press and release of the scan/rev button(lower right hand corner) starts a single scan through the three screens for the previous exercise session. The previous session information is stored in memory until heart rate monitoring is next switched on.

 

Time In Zone (TIZ)

 

This feature shows the time you spent in each zone while exercising. If the heart rate goes out of your target zone the elapsed timer will stop, restarting as soon as your heart rate is back in your target zone. Time above, within, and below with average heart rate and percentage of session time statistics are stored in memory. To clear TIZ time, press and hold the st/fwd button (upper right hand corner) until the display shows zero.

 

To view TIZ statistics, press and release the Lap/Spl/Set button (middle button below display) to view each of the zones time in, above and below your target zones.

Press and release the mode key (lower right hand corner) to go back to the main TIZ screen.

 

The first screen( the main TIZ screen) shows the session time in hours, minutes and seconds. This is the time from the heart rate monitoring being switched on for the current exercise session. The timer stops when heart rate monitoring is switched off.

To continue scrolling through TIZ press the Lap/Spl/Set key  (middle button below display).

 

The second screen shows what your average heart rate has been for zone 1 in the middle of the screen, the time in zone 1 at the top of the screen and the % of time on the bottom of the screen.

 

The third screen shows what your average heart rate has been while you were above target zone 1 in the middle of the screen, the time above zone 1 at the top of the screen and the % of time spent above zone 1 at the bottom of the screen.

Another press of the Lap/Spl/Set button (middle button below screen) will bring you to the statistics for zone 3.

 

The eighth screen shows what your average heart rate has been for zone 2 in the middle of the screen, the time in zone 2 at the top of the screen and the % of time on the bottom of the screen.

 

The ninth screen shows what your average heart rate has been while you were above target zone 3 in the middle of the screen, the time above zone 3 at the top of the screen and the % of time spent above zone 3 at the bottom of the screen.

  The tenth screen shows what your minimum heart rate has been while you were below target zone 3 in the middle of the screen, the time above zone 3 at the top of the screen and the % of time spent below zone 3 at the bottom of the screen.

 

Another press of the Lap/Spl/Set button (middle button below screen) will bring you to the statistics for manual zone (M).

  The eleventh screen shows what your average heart rate has been for zone M in the middle of the screen, the time in zone M at the top of the screen and the % of time on the bottom of the screen.

  The twelfth screen shows what your average heart rate has been while you were above target zone M in the middle of the screen, the time above zone M at the top of the screen and the % of time spent above zone M at the bottom of the screen.

  The last screen shows what your minimum heart rate has been while you were below target zone M in the middle of the screen, the time above zone M at the top of the screen and the % of time spent below zone M at the bottom of the screen.
