Overexertion can cause serious injury, including heart attacks.
Some individuals cannot safely elevate their heart rate to the
levels of typically used heart rate training zones. No one
should begin an exercise program without first obtaining
medical clearance, especially if there is a personal or family
history of heart disease, high blood pressure, or if you are
over age 40, have diabetes, high cholesterol, smoke cigarettes,
are overweight or are taking certain medications. Stop
exercising and seek medical attention if you notice signs of
overexertion or heart problems, such as pain or pressure in
the left or mid-chest area or left neck area, shoulder or arm,
light-headedness, cold sweat, unusual paleness or fainting.
Also note that the signals used by this monitor may interfere
with a pacemaker or other implanted devices, consult the
manufacturer of the implant device and/or your physician prior
to using this monitor.
CONGRATULATIONS!
Welcome to the future of wireless heart rate technology!

exercise and are committed to achieving your best.

Training, you will increase the effectiveness of your

guide you to your fitness goals more effectively.

The Exercise Factor is one of the variables used by the watch
in estimating the amount of calories burned during your
workout. The most common forms of exercise are listed in
the table below.
Select a number from the table below based on how hard
you plan to exercise for a given activity and set your watch
accordingly (see Setting Instructions on Page 9).

BATTERY REPLACEMENT
The Watch Battery Replacement
We recommend that you should take it to a local jewelry
store or an authorized Acumen service center in order to
guarantee that it will maintain its water resistance. Improper
battery replacement or service will void the warranty. If you
feel comfortable replacing your own batteries, be careful
to notice how the old battery comes out and the proper
positioning of the hold-down contacts before removing it.
Also, be careful to line up the o-ring gasket properly before
replacing the battery door cover. To insure battery water
resistance, it’s a good idea to smear a small drop of silicone
lubricant spray on the rubber o-ring.
Note: The watch will enter the shelf mode after changing
battery (i.e. blank screen). Press any button to return to
normal mode.

Chest Transmitter Battery Replacement
Step 1: Remove the transmitter from the belt.(Fig.1)
Step 2: Use a coin to unlock the battery door, and then replace
the old battery inside with a new one. (Fig.2)
Step 3: Lock the battery door firmly into place making sure the
O-ring seal does not get pinched or distorted.

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
Do not operate buttons under water. Although your
watch is water resistant, be sure that you do not operate
its buttons under water as pressure can cause them to
leak.
Dry off transmitter after use. The transmitter will
automatically shut itself off once you have disconnected
it from your chest. However, it is important to thoroughly
dry it off after every use, since moisture in the electrodes
can cause it to remain on longer.
Electrode precautions. Be sure not to excessively twist
or bend the electrode portions of the chest transmitter
(never bend backwards), especially when storing it. This
can permanently damage their conductivity and cause
mechanical damage to the internal circuit.
Global Reset. If your watch should ever get stuck or
act erratically due to dropping it, static shock or some
other unforeseen reasons, this feature will allow you to
reset the watch and return all settings back to their
internal defaults. To perform this function, press and
hold both buttons together for 3 seconds under any
mode. The watch will enter the shelf mode, which is of
the blank screen. Press any button to restart it.
.
Caution: Global Reset will CLEAR UP EVERYTHING
that include your Personal Settings.
