Using your MYZONE Physical Activity Belt.
Q: How do I use my MYZONE Physical Activity Belt?
A: Your MYZONE Physical Activity Belt picks up electrical signals
generated by the contractions of your heart. To be effective your
MYZONE Physical Activity Belt must be worn under your clothing
and make good contact with your skin. Adjust it so that it fits
comfortably across the centre of your chest, with the MYZONE
logo on the transmitter facing away from you. The MYZONE
Belt should not be firm or tight around your body, ensure it is
comfortable.
Q: How do I adjust the size of my MYZONE Physical Activity
Belt?
A: You adjust the strap size using the plastic adjusters. To shorten it,
use both hands to pull the adjusters apart. To lengthen it hold one
end in one hand and use your other hand to pull the upper adjuster
downwards.
Q: When should I use my MYZONE Physical Activity Belt?
A: You can use your MYZONE Physical Activity Belt during any
concerted physical activity, whether that’s at a gym or sports
facility, out walking or anything that makes your heart work!
Q: Can I use my MYZONE Physical Activity Belt outside of my
MYZONE facility?
A: Yes. One of the unique features of the MYZONE Physical Activity
Belt is that it will record any concerted physical activity that you
undertake, anywhere. Once your workout data is automatically
uploaded to your account it clears the MYZONE Physical Activity
Belt memory to enable you to store more activity data.
Q: How do I know my MYZONE Physical Activity Belt is
working?
A: i) If you are exercising away from a MYZONE Receiver your
MYZONE Physical Activity Belt will beep 3 times to tell you
it is storing your activity data. If you do not hear this try and
reposition it and ensure it is positioned correctly. You can also
moisten the contact pads of the fabric strap slightly to increase
conductivity.
ii) If you are exercising within your MYZONE facility, and are within
range of the MYZONE receiver, your MYZONE Physical Activity
Belt will beep once and your details will appear on screen –
this is called “live streaming”.
If you are not in range of the receiver you will go into “store mode”
(this is when data is stored inside your MYZONE Physical Activity Belt)
until you move into range of the receiver. You can move in and out of
range and your MYZONE Physical Activity Belt will move from “stored
mode” to “live streaming”.
Q: How is my heart rate displayed on the screen in my
MYZONE facility?
A: O
nce you have created your MYZONE account at
www.myzonemoves.com your MYZONE Physical Activity Belt is
automatically detected by the MYZONE receiver’s in the facility
when within range. On the screen you will have a dedicated tile that
shows your Alias name, calories burnt, current heart rate in beats
per minute, MYZONE Effort Points and in the centre a % of your
maximum effort.
Q: What do I do if I do not hear 3 beeps or appear on screen?
A: If you do not hear the 3 beeps and are more than 75 metres away
from a MYZONE Receiver you may need to reset the MYZONE
Physical Activity Belt - this is as a last resort after ensuring your belt
is positioned correctly. To do this simply take the battery out of the
back using the plastic adjuster, wait for 2 seconds, and replace the
battery. You will hear a single long beep to say the belt is reset.
Note – This is the very last resort but if you do reset the belt
unfortunately any stored data on the belt will be lost.

belt in water or use it when swimming.

the back of the MYZONE transmitter. Fit the new battery into the

facing upwards. Place the back cover over the battery and press
down until it clicks into place. You will hear a long single beep to
indicate the belt is reset and working.
