Combo Heart Rate Monitor & Watch
introduction
How to Use this Manual
This heart rate monitor has many unique features and
functions. Before using it in the field, please read all sections
of the manual carefully to become completely familiar with
its operation.
The manual is divided into sections outlining how to
program and operate the monitor. An illustration of the
display screen that represents the starting point or other
important screens are shown next to the instructions. The
corresponding keys are shown as PRESS & HOLD or PRESS.
This heart rate monitor is a sensitive, technical piece of
equipment. It will last for many years with proper care and
maintenance, but improper handling can cause the various
sensors to be damaged and to stop functioning.
Proper setup and operation will greatly enhance the
monitor’s usefulness and your enjoyment.

Warnings & Cautions
WARNING: Before starting any exercise program or
performing any vigorous physical activity, we strongly
suggest you visit your doctor for a complete physical and to
discuss your plans.
CAUTION: Your watch is designed to be water resistant to a
static pressure of 5 ATM and can be worn while showering
and light swimming. However, we recommend that extensive
use of the unit in the water be avoided whenever possible.
Care should be taken not to press any keys while the unit is
submerged as this can force moisture past the key seals and
damage the unit.
CAUTION: Avoid rough usage or severe impacts to your watch.
DO NOT use hand cream or lotion as it will insulate the signal
between the skin and sensor contacts.
DO NOT use the fingertips where the skin is dry and thick. For
those with extremely dry skin, moisten fingers and wrist with
tap water or a conductive gel.
Clean the Back Cover occasionally by using a damp cloth.
Then wipe dry to remove any residual grease or film.
Clean your skin and fingers with soap and water for a better
signal transmission.
Avoid doing awkward motions during measurement. It may
create inaccurate heart rate readings.

Quick Start for on-demand Heart
Rate
Heart rate may be acquired from any operating mode (except
in Programming Sequences).
1. Fasten the watch snugly around your wrist.
2. touch & Hold the Heart Rate Sensor with your thumb
and index finger.
important: If the Heart Rate Sensor
is accidentally touched, or exposed to
excessive water/moisture (i.e. being
submerged in a pool), the watch will
automatically attempt to acquire a
heart rate. Since water acts as a natural
conductor, it can accidentally trigger the
heart rate feature.
Tip: You may exit the Heart Rate acquire
mode at any time by pressing any key
(except the EL key).
3. When heart rate is displayed, release sensors. Heart Rate
will display in beats per minute (BPM) along with your % of
maximum heart rate. It will display for about 6 seconds.
TIP: It is possible to acquire your heart rate by touching any part of the
metal heart rate sensor.
5
Quick Start for continuous Heart Rate
The Chest Strap Transmitter provides constant heart rate
display throughout the duration of your workout. To ensure
a proper heart rate reading, the chest transmitter must be
properly adjusted:
1. Fasten the watch snugly around your wrist.
2. Connect the elastic belt to the transmitter unit and secure
around your chest (See below).
3. Adjust the strap so that the transmitter fits snug (but not
constricting) below the pectoral muscles (See below).
4. Position the electrodes, as shown in the drawing (See
below).
5. Press the Mode key to advance to Heart Rate/
Chronograph mode. The watch will automatically search
for a heart rate signal in about 8 seconds.
6. Heart rate will display in beats per minute (BPM) along
with your % of maximum heart rate.

electrodes
tip: In dry and cold climates it may take a
few minutes for a layer of perspiration to
form between the chest strap and the skin.
Moistening the electrodes with water or ECG
conductive gel can speed up this process.

Target Heart Rate Zone
The monitor allows you to select from 3 preset Target
Heart Rate Zones (Aerobic, Fat Burn and Health) and 1
user-defined Target Zone. The monitor tracks time IN, ABOVE
and BELOW Target Zone during exercise and has an audible
alert that can be turned ON or OFF.
Health Zone – Range: 50% - 65% of maximum heart rate.
For fitness beginners on a low to moderate intensity program.
Exercising in this zone reduces blood pressure and cholesterol.
Fat Burning Zone – Range: 65% - 75% of maximum heart rate.
Nearly all the calories burned are recruited from fats.
Exercising in this zone strengthens the cardiovascular system.
Aerobic Zone – Range: 75% - 85% of maximum heart rate.
Reaching this zone requires more intense aerobic activity
and burns maximum calories from fat and carbohydrates.
Increased metabolism and elevated caloric burn are the
primary benefits.
11
TARGET HEART RATE ZONE setup

Replacing the battery
Replacing the watch battery
Battery type: one (1) CR2032 lithium battery.
Battery replacement will be required from time to time, and
should occur when:
1. The display fades in part or completely
2. The heart rate function will not activate
3. Backlight System does not operate
In order to ensure the water resistance will be retained after
battery replacement, it is recommended you take it to a
watch repair service center or certified jeweler.
19
Replacing the battery
Replacing the chest transmitter battery
This monitor features a wireless heart rate transmitter,
powered by one (1) CR2032 3v Lithium battery. Under
normal conditions you can expect to get approximately
300-400 hours of heart rate transmitter use with a new
battery. To replace the battery:
1. Using a coin, turn the battery door counter clockwise until
the door comes free of the transmitter.
2. Take care not to damage the O-ring seal for the battery
compartment and carefully remove the old battery.
3. Place a new battery in the battery compartment with the
positive (+) side toward the battery door.
4. Place the battery door over the opening and tighten it
down by using a coin and turning in a clockwise direction.
5. If the O-ring has been damaged, replace it before
reinstalling the battery door. Most jewelers and watch
shops should have replacement O-ring seals.
important: To ensure the unit remains
fully water resistant, extreme care should
be taken when replacing the battery.
Failure to properly replace the battery
and correctly seal the unit may cause the
unit to become damaged and may void
the warranty.

troubleshooting
Potential causes for no Heart Rate reading or
long response time:
Cause: Dry skin
Solution: Apply conductive gel or tap water thoroughly to chest
area (for Chest-Strap measurement) or finger/wrist (for Finger-Touch
measurement).
Cause: Chest strap/watch is not contacting with skin
Solution: Make sure the chest strap is secured firmly just below the
breast plate (see page 6) and the watch is fastened securely on wrist.
Cause: Muscle “noise” caused by pressing on the sensor too hard
Solution: Press gently with enough pressure to activate the heart
rate measure. Also, try using the soft, flat pads of your fingers and not
the tips.
Cause: Watch was exposed to excessive water/moisture, such as being
in a pool or the shower.
Solution: Dry the watch before attempting to acquire a heart rate.
Cause: A thin layer of body grease insulates the ECG signal preventing
the Chest Strap or Watch from detecting ECG heart rate
Solution: Wipe chest/wrist and the back of Chest Strap/Watch with a
tissue or soft towel.
Cause: Hairy Skin
Solution: Apply conductive gel to chest area or wrist. It may be
necessary to shave the area of the chest beneath the transmitter
Cause: Low Battery
Solution: Replace the battery in watch/transmitter and try again.
Cause: Electrical field interference from RF devices such as overhead
21
power lines, electrical noise, etc.
Solution: Leave the area where RF sources potentially exist.
