Setting target zones (click for tips)
Press the select button until the heart rate / time of day screen is displayed.  Press and hold the  select key to enter the settings for the high and low alarms.  Press the adjust to the desired limits.  ( I set mine from 123 to 153 for running)     Holding the adjust button makes the digits change quickly.  The high limit can be increased to a maximum of 240 bpm then it returns to 80 bpm, the low limit can be decreased to 30bpm and then it will return to the high limit value minus 5 bpm.   (Zone Calculator)  To turn the heart rate alarm on/off press and hold the adjust button when the limit classic is in the heart rate mode.   The alarm is visibly displayed with a symbol above the heart letting you know if the alarm is on or off.  The alarm will sound only if you are above or below the heart zone that you previously set.  

Do not be obsessed with finding your exact target zone.  Even though the zones can vary from person to person, you should initially be concerned about exercising not too hard or not too easy.  Later on you can find your approximate maximum heart rate for the sport you are training in and then set your zones according to your goals.  In general running, cross country skiing will produce higher heart rates, while swimming, aerobics and walking will have lower zones.   Cycling, In-Line Skating and Rowing will be somewhere in the middle.
