About Coaching
The coaching feature includes Firstbeat technology to provide personalized exercise guidance. Firstbeat uses
Training Effect (TE) analysis that measures the accumulated physical load during a workout and assesses the
impact on your fitness. TE levels are based on your physical profile and the heart rate information recorded while
you workout. Your TE level increases when you perform effective exercise and the coaching feature uses the TE
to provide you with feedback.
The feedback is provided by the feature using prompts, such as ‘speed up’, ‘keep up this pace’, and ‘slow down’.
When you first start to use the coaching feature, it estimates an appropriate TE level based on your profile. As
you exercise, it analyses your training history and provide more personalized guidance. A typical workout may
start at a lower intensity and sharply increase in intensity towards the end.
Visit www.firstbeat.fi/te for more information.
Important! The Gear™ 2 Neo measures your heart rate with the heart rate measurement sensor. This feature
may not work properly if the heart rate sensor is exposed to excessive sweat or its position is
changes during exercise.
