How your heart rate measurement is being used
The PS-100 continuously monitors your heart rate and uses this recording, in addition to your body
movement, to calculate the individual activities in PULSENSE View. We therefore recommend having the
heart rate detection enabled all the time, not only during exercise.
For more information, go to the Help section in the PULSENSE View app.
Using your PS-100 • 23
How to stop and resume heart rate measurement
Heart rate detection stops if the product is not worn and has not been moved for three minutes. Heart rate
detection starts again when the product has been moved.
This LED pattern is shown when the PS-100 has been removed from your wrist:
Note:
Place the product onto a flat surface to stop measurement.
It may take one to six minutes until the measurement stops.
To resume heart rate measurement, put the PS-100 on your wrist.
