Charge the device and use it in temperature conditions between 0° to 35°C (32° to
95°F) and keep in an environment of between -10° to 45°C (14° to 113°F).
• Do not operate the device or use earphones while driving a car or riding a motorcycle
or a bicycle, since this could result in a serious accident.
• To avoid accidents while walking or jogging, keep the volume low enough to hear
outside traffic sounds and avoid concentrating too closely on the display.
If you notice any abnormality
• If there is a sudden loss of sound during use of the device, or if any unusual smells or
smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch and
have the device inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
WARNING

Fitness Modes—Walk Fitness and Jog Fitness
Fitness Modes—Walk Fitness and Jog Fitness
The Fitness modes provide the most appropriate music playback for optimal
aerobic exercise. In that sense, they are similar to the Free Workout mode.
However, they go much further, monitoring your heart rate and providing
sophisticated ways of changing the music to give you a perfectly programmed,
optimal aerobic workout—that matches your physical condition and the
intensity of your exercise.
The built-in pulse sensor detects your heart rate as you exercise. Continuously
and in real time, the BF-11 calculates the optimal exercise pace for you, given
your physical condition—and then automatically changes the music to match
your pace and heart rate. If your exercise is too strenuous and your heart rate is
too high (higher than optimal), the BF-11 plays slower tempo music. Likewise, if
your exercise is too easy and relaxed to provide adequate exercise benefits,
the BF-11 plays faster music. This ensures that you get the best possible
exercise—not too little, and not too much.
Starting Up
Exercising
Computer
Music Player
Settings
Each Fitness mode also features automatically programmed ‘warming up’ and
‘cooling down’ segments that effectively structure your exercise sessions and
help you avoid unnatural stress and fatigue.
Since the Fitness modes monitor your heart rate, you will need to properly
attach the pulse sensor. (For instructions, see page 20.) You will also need to
make sure other settings have been made, such as your actual age and resting
heart rate (page 71).
There are two Fitness modes: Walk Fitness and Jog Fitness. Essentially, they
function and operate exactly the same, except that Walk Fitness is specifically
programmed for walking, while Jog Fitness is designed for the more strenuous
and intense exercise you get while jogging. (However, slow tempo songs
matched for walking may sometimes be played if your heart rate goes higher
than optimal condition.)

What is ‘Effective’ Aerobic Exercise?
Aerobic exercise, such as walking and jogging, builds up your
cardiopulmonary functions and increases your stamina. Since
stamina is a good measure of physical age, regular and continuous
aerobic exercise can make your body more youthful.
Exercising
Computer
Aerobic exercise is also very effective for losing weight. Oxygen brought into
body breaks down and burns off fat. Moreover, as your exercising builds muscle
mass and increases basal metabolism, your whole body and constitution loses
more and more fat.
To achieve the maximum benefits of aerobic exercise, you should avoid merely
jogging in any haphazard fashion, but be careful to set appropriate exercise
intensity levels (i.e., the pace for walking/jogging) and exercise lengths.
Music Player
Settings
Exercise intensity and heart rate
As you exercise, your heart rate rises. Since intense exercise increases your
heart rate more significantly than light exercise, heart rate is a reliable indicator
for exercise intensity. To achieve the desired effect of your exercise, it is
important that you determine the target heart rate in advance and try to bring
your heart rate up to this target during exercise.
How can you determine the proper target heart rate? There are various methods
for calculating heart rate, but the BF-11 adopts a method using %HRR
(percentage of heart rate reserve). The %HRR figure assumes your resting heart
rate as 0% and your maximum heart rate (heart rate during your most intense
exercise) as 100%. For walking, a %HRR figure of 55 – 75% is optimal for aerobic
exercise. For jogging, 65 – 75% is optimal. For the specific formula used to
calculate your optimum target heart rate, see page 38.
n
The BF-11 calculates your heart rate according to the blood flow at your ear lobe detected by the
included pulse sensor.
Using the Fitness modes, you can maintain the optimal heart rate during exercise
without the need to be continually conscious of your heart rate, simply by
entering your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate figures in advance.
When your heart rate dips below the optimal level, faster songs are played to
naturally prompt you to increase your pace; likewise, when your heart rate
exceeds the optimal level, slower songs are played to prompt you to decrease
your pace. Thanks to this feature, you simply match your walking/jogging pace to
the tempo of the music, and your optimal heart rate is maintained (refer to the
graph below). You can also easily check whether your heart rate is optimal or not
from the LED. When it is optimal (%HRR is 55 – 75%), it flashes in green. When
lower than optimal, it flashes in blue. When higher than optimal, it flashes in red.

Exercise length
For best results, one exercise session should be at least fifteen minutes. Twenty
minutes or more is recommended, because as long as you exercise, the
proportion of fat-burning increases and remains high. When you are walking,
more time is required for this than when jogging—roughly 30 – 40 minutes—
because your heart rate increases more slowly than when jogging.
Settings
Warming up and cooling down
Warming up and cooling down is necessary not only for effective exercise but
also for protection from injury and proper recovery from fatigue. Generally,
bending and stretching, as well as minimum-stress exercises are good for
warming up and cooling down. The Fitness modes of the BF-11 actually include
warming up and cooling down segments to guide you naturally into lighter
exercising. At the beginning of the exercise and at the end of the exercise, slower
songs are automatically played back. Simply match your pace to the music
playing, and you can warm up and cool down appropriately.
For safe exercise
Pay careful attention to the environment around you to avoid accidents.
• Exercise in locations of light or minimal traffic, such as a park or a jogging path.
• Exercise in broad daylight if possible. Exercising at dusk or after the sun goes
down—or worse yet, at night—you may not be able to properly see dangerous
obstacles, and other people or drivers may not be able to see you.
• When jogging, pay more attention to your environment than when walking. The
faster you are moving, the greater the danger.

Exercising According to a Training Program—Training
Mode
In the Training mode, you can create more detailed structured exercise
sessions and make custom programs to fit your individual exercise needs.
Preset Training programs are also available for certain exercise situations or
goals. You can use these as a starting point. (You may want to inspect these
programs within the included software, to more easily view the contents and the
targets over the programmed exercise).
Each program in the Training mode contains several segments, each lasting for
a specific amount of time or for a specific distance. Each segment also has a
different target. This can be a certain intensity of exercise (as measured by
heart rate reserve), a specific music tempo, a specific heart rate, or a specific
pace (as measured by minutes: seconds per mile). Simply put, a Training
program divides an exercise session into multiple parts, each programmed
exactly to suit your exercise needs or fit a specific athletic training application.

About heart rate reserve
Heart rate reserve (HRR) is a term used to describe the difference
between a person’s resting heart rate (HRrest) and maximum heart rate
(HRmax). The formula is:
Exercising
HRR = HRmax – HRrest
Computer
The BF-11 actually measures and calculates the percentage of heart
rate reserve (%HRR) and uses this as a measurement of exercise
intensity.
By using %HRR as the exercise intensity, the optimal heart rate (HR) in
exercising is calculated. The formula is:
Music Player
Settings
HR = HRR x %HRR + HRrest
For example, if your HRmax is 180 bpm, HRrest is 60 bpm and target
%HRR is 70%, the HR is calculated as:
HR = (180 – 60) x 0.7 + 60 = 144
After the Interval and Target setting is finished, the following display appears.
Interval
Target
n
When you select “Tempo” for the Target, “T” is appended to the value. When you select “HR” for
the Target, “H” is appended to the value. (For example, “01.0mi-T170bpm” stands for “one mile
at a tempo of 170 bpm.”)

Heart Rate
These parameters let you check your heart rate (pulse) and register your resting
and maximum heart rates. Make sure the two readings are as accurate as
possible. These maximum and resting heart rates are used in the Fitness and
Training modes to tailor the music and pace to your true physical condition.
■ Checking your resting heart rate and registering it
It is important for exercise and training purposes that you accurately
measure your resting heart rate. The best time to measure it is in the
morning, after a good night’s sleep, and before you get out of bed. The
heart beats about 50 to 70 times a minute when we’re at rest and it’s
generally lower in physically fit people. As you exercise and train with the
BF-11, you may want to regularly check your resting heart rate and
change it when necessary.
Operation
1 From the User Settings menu, select the Heart Rate settings.
2 Make sure the pulse sensor is securely attached to your ear lobe
Troubleshooting
(see page 20).
Also, make sure you are truly resting, relaxed, and not following some strenuous
activity.

Once your heart rate is measured, it is shown in the display.
Exercising
The level indicator is shown at the bottom of the display. This indicates the
detected level of your pulse over a range of 0 – 100. The higher value means
your heart rate is correctly and strongly detected. If it seems that your pulse is
not detected properly, try rubbing your ear robe to stimulate blood circulation
or changing the pulse sensor location.
4 To register the value as your Resting Heart Rate, first call up the

▲/▼ (Up/Down) buttons.
5 Select “Yes” to register the new value or “No” to cancel.
■ Changing the Heart Rate values
You can also change the Resting Heart Rate setting, by entering it
manually instead of measuring it. The Maximum Heart Rate setting can be
changed here as well.
FYI
About Maximum Heart Rate
The Maximum Heart Rate is calculated from your age (220 – age) by
default. However, as you exercise with the BF-11 in Fitness modes or
Training mode, the BF-11 monitors your pace and heart rate during
exercise and calculates your maximum heart rate. If the value differs
from your Maximum Heart Rate setting, you can update the setting with
the new value. For your information, your physical age based on the
maximum heart rate will be displayed together with the maximum heart
rate. When an exercise session is finished, a confirmation prompt
appears asking whether you want to update the Maximum Heart Rate
setting or not (only when the Learning Function is on; page 74).

This setting lets you enter your personal stride length. Measure your stride as
accurately as you can for both walking and jogging and specify the two values
here. These are used for calculating the distance and pace you walk or jog in a
session (distance = steps x strides, pace = time / distance). When you specify
your height, the stride length is automatically calculated (“height x 0.8” for
jogging, “height x 0.5” for walking), so that you would normally not have to
change this setting.

Learning Function
The BF-11 memorizes the skip/top count and analyzes the playback priority for
each song. It also memorizes your manual pace change and calculates your
optimal pace and maximum heart rate in the Fitness modes and Training mode.
These features are together called the Learning function.
When you change songs while exercising, the BF-11 memorizes the skip/top
count—in other words, the number of times you skip over certain songs or go
back to the top of certain songs—and determines the playback priority of the
song. If a song has a high skip count (meaning you often skip it and go on to
another song), it is given a lower playback priority. If a song has a high top
count (meaning you often rewind back to the top of the song), it is given a
higher playback priority.
When you change the pace manually while exercising, the BF-11 memorizes
the pace changes and your heart rate and calculates your optimal starting
pace, fastest pace and maximum heart rate. If the calculated maximum heart
rate differs from the maximum heart rate setting you set before, you can
manually register the new value to the BF-11.
If you change your pace manually or change songs while exercising, a
confirmation message will appear when the workout reaches its end to prompt
you to memorize the changed information. Select “Yes” to memorize.

The playback priority is memorized for each exercise segment: warm up, during exercise, and cool

This operation restores the factory default settings of the BF-11. Keep in mind
that it automatically replaces any settings you’ve made yourself with the original
settings that were on the device when you purchased it. It clears all data from
the BF-11—including your exercise logs, user songs and any personal
information—and performs a complete factory reset. Be careful not to use this
function unless you are sure you want to erase your custom settings and data.
Do not confuse this operation with pressing the [RESET] switch (page 11).
Pressing the [RESET] switch only recovers the BF-11 (for example, to turn the
device on again if normal operation “freezes”) and leaves your exercise logs,
songs and all other data intact.
CAUTION
Before initializing, transfer any important data (exercise log and/or training program) to

■ In the Training mode, I set the appropriate target as “Pace” but
the played song’s tempo seems to be different from the set
pace.
• The pace is determined based on the jog stride setting. If the stride setting
differs from your actual stride, the tempo of the song playing back while
exercising may be too fast or too slow. Change the stride setting (page 73).
■ The distance of the exercise logs seems to be wrong.
• The distance you walk or jog is calculated based on your stride setting
(page 73). Entering the exact value for your walking/jogging stride may
bring the calculated distance closer to the actual value.
■ The time of the exercise logs seem to be wrong.
• The clock of the BF-11 may go wrong or stop if you don’t use the BF-11 for a
long period or you don’t adjust the time for a long period. To avoid this
situation, check the Date/Time setting frequently (page 70).
■ A “Memory Full” message appears during creating/editing the
training program and a new program/segment cannot be
created.
• The number of programs/segments that can be saved to the BF-11 is limited
(refer to page 37). If a “Memory Full” message appears, save all programs
within the BODiBEAT Station software to your computer and delete them
from the BF-11. Then, load only the ones you need from the computer to the
device just before exercising.
