Many athletes are using heart rate
zones to measure and increase their
cardiovascular strength and improve
their level of fitness. A heart rate
zone is a set range of heartbeats per
minute.
FR70 Owner’s Manual
Training Mode
The five commonly accepted heart
rate zones are numbered from 1 to
5 according to increasing intensity.
Generally, heart rate zones are
calculated based on percentages of
your maximum heart rate.
How Do Heart Rate Zones
Affect Your Fitness Goals?
Knowing your heart rate zones can
help you measure and improve
your fitness by understanding and
applying these principles:
• Your heart rate is a good measure
of exercise intensity.
• Training in certain heart rate
zones can help you improve
cardiovascular capacity and
strength.
• Knowing your heart rate
zones can prevent you from
overtraining and can decrease
your risk of injury.
FR70 Owner’s Manual
You can set the low and high heart
rate limits for each zone. If you
know your maximum heart rate,
you can use the table on page 20 to
determine the best heart rate zone for
your fitness objectives.
If you do not know your maximum
heart rate, use one of the calculators
available on the Internet.

• Warm up for 5–10 minutes. If the problem persists,
continue with the following suggestions.
• Reapply moisture to the sensors. Use water, saliva,
or electrode gel. Clean the sensors. Dirt and sweat

• Strong electromagnetic fields and some 2.4 GHz
wireless sensors can interfere with your heart rate
monitor. Sources of interference may include very
high-voltage power lines, electric motors, microwave
ovens, 2.4 GHz cordless phones, and wireless LAN
access points. After you move away from the source
