Button Commands and Important Tips
Button Commands
The Axiom 606 is a full-featured heart rate monitor, but
remains simple to use. You need to remember only a few
basic button commands to set or change values and to scroll
through the four main screens (please refer to Figure A1 and
A2 in the Appendix for an overview of screen selection).
Please note that all button presses should be a short press
and release unless otherwise noted.
To advance from one main screen to the next, press the
Mode button. The Mode button will cycle through the four
main screens in the following order: Time of Day, Stopwatch,
Timer, Time in Zone, and back to Time of Day.
To enter Setup mode: Press and hold the Start/Lap button
in any main screen except Time in Zone. To advance from
one setup screen to the next, press the Start/Lap button. To
change the values within each setup screen, press the Stop/
Adj button.
At any point in the setup mode, you may return to the previous setup screen with a short press of the Light button. The
backlight will not illuminate in any setup screen. To exit the
setup mode and return to one of the four main screens, press
and hold the Light button.
If you accidentally find yourself in a setup screen but don’t
wish to modify the values, simply press and hold the Light
button to exit the setup mode and return to a main screen.
Important Tips
1. To activate the Heart Rate function (to display heart rate),
press and hold the Mode button in any main screen.
2. To exit any setup screen and return to a main screen,
press and hold the Light button.
3. To advance from one main screen to the next, press the
Mode button.
4. To start the Stopwatch in any main screen, press the Start
Lap button. To stop the Stopwatch in any main screen,
press the Stop/Adj button.
5. Time in zone data accumulates only while the stopwatch is
running. Activate the stopwatch at the beginning of your
workout if you wish to record time in, above and below
zone, and average and maximum heart rate for entire
workout.
6. For heart rate readings to register properly, it is critical
that there be sufficient moisture (water, saliva or Axiom
Heartbeat Signal Enhancer) between the electrodes on the
transmitter (chest strap) and your skin. Insufficient
moisture may cause no reading, a frozen reading or
an erratic reading.
7. Using a wireless heart rate monitor near computers,
motorized gym equipment, electric motors, high voltage
power lines, automobiles, televisions or fluorescent lights
may cause erratic readings.
8.Your Axiom heart rate monitor is water resistant, and can
be used while swimming. However, do not press any of the
buttons while the receiver (watch) is submersed.
Positioning the Chest Band/Transmitter
1. Adjust the elastic strap length to achieve a snug,
comfortable fit.
2.The transmitter should face outward as shown in Fig.2,
with the band fitting comfortably on the bare chest just
below the breast.
3.Center the transmitter on the chest (with the Axiom
logo right-side up).
Figure 2. Correct Transmitter
­location on chest, detail of
­moistening electrodes.
4. Moisten the rubber electrodes on the inside of the
transmitter strap with water, saliva or Axiom Heartbeat
Signal Enhancer.
5. Attach the receiver to your wrist, or mount it to your
bicycle (see instructions below for mounting the receiver
to your bike).
6. When placed on the body, the transmitter is automatically
activated (and deactivated when removed). To conserve
transmitter battery power, the transmitter should be
removed when not in use.
If you have difficulty obtaining a regular heart rate reading,
try readjusting the chest strap. The rubber electrodes must
be flat against the skin, and the band must be in the correct
position—not too low. Make sure there is sufficient moisture
between the electrodes and your skin. Check that the band
is clean, with no accumulated sweat or dirt.
Mounting the Receiver to Your Bike
Your 606 includes a Handlebar Adapter for your bike. Slide
the split foam ring over your handlebar in a
convenient location and wrap the Velcro® Strap snugly
around the foam ring. Your 606 receiver may now be
attached to the foam ring as it would be attached to your
wrist.

To use the Lap Timer, Lap mode must have been selected in
the setup procedure (see “Setting Stopwatch/Lap/Interval
Timers”, page 16).
Note: Lap Timer and stopwatch operation are linked.
The lap timer is used to record times for as many as 20 laps
(portions of a workout). Also recorded are average heart
rate and maximum heart rate for each lap, and total elapsed
stopwatch time.
1. Advance to the Timer main screen (TMR) using the Mode
button. “TMR” and current lap time will be displayed in
the upper row of the display. If the heart rate function is
activated, the lower row of the display will show the
number of the current lap for three seconds, before
reverting to current heart rate information. If the heart
rate function is not activated, the number of the current
lap will remain displayed.
2.To begin the first lap, press the Start/Lap button. (Note:
This press can be made from any main screen.) This press
will activate the stopwatch, and “STW” will flash in all
27
main screens (except the Stopwatch main screen, where
it will remain steady).
3.To record the first lap, press the Start/Lap button again.
(Note: this press can be made from any main screen.) One
alarm beep will sound, and the lap time, average heart
rate and maximum heart rate for lap 1 will be recorded
in memory.
4.To record successive laps, press the Start/Lap button.
(Note: These presses can be made from any main screen.)
Each press of the Start/Lap button records the previous
lap in memory and begins a new lap.
5.Each time the Start/Lap button is pressed, the time of the
lap just measured will be displayed in the upper row of
the display, and the number of the lap just measured will
be displayed in the lower row of the display. After three
seconds, the display will revert to main screen data.
6.After the 20th lap has been recorded, “End” will appear
in the lower row of the display, and further presses of the
Start/Lap button will emit no alarm beep. This indicates
that memory is full. The stopwatch will continue to run,
but no additional lap data will be recorded in memory.
Each lap time will be recorded in memory (up to a total of 20
laps), along with average and maximum heart rate values
for each lap (provided the heart rate function is activated),
and total elapsed stopwatch time. To view this data, see
“Viewing Memory Recall Screens,” page 34.
28
Reset
1. To reset the Lap Timer and Stopwatch, advance to the
Timer main screen (TMR) using the Mode button.
2. Press and hold the Stop/Adj button.
Note: Resetting the Lap Timer will clear all accumulated lap
recall data from memory and will reset the stopwatch time.
In Interval Mode

selected in the setup procedure (see “Setting Stopwatch/
Lap/Interval Timers,” page 16).
Note: To operate the Interval Timer, the heart rate function
must be activated (with a long press of the Mode button in
any main screen). Interval Timer and stopwatch operation
are linked.
The interval timer is used to control interval training, by
coordinating a sequence of up to 20 alternating exercise
and recovery phases. Each exercise phase lasts for a preset duration, and is governed by a countdown timer. Each
recovery phase lasts either for a preset
duration, or until a preset recovery heart rate is attained. (To
program the exercise and recovery sessions, see “Setting
Stopwatch/Lap/Interval Timers,” page 16).
29
1. Advance to the Timer main screen (TMR) using the Mode
button, and activate the heart rate function with a long
press of the Mode button. Time remaining in the first
exercise phase of the first interval will be displayed in the
upper row of the display.
2. Beginning the first interval session requires two presses
of the Start/Lap button. (Note: These presses can be
made from any main screen.) The first press will activate
the stopwatch. “STW” will flash in all main screens
except the Stopwatch main screen, where it will remain
steady.
3.The second press of the Start/Lap button will begin the
exercise phase of the first interval. This press can be
made from any main screen. If this press is made from
any screen other than the Timer main screen, the 606 will
automatically advance to the Timer main screen, and the
running countdown timer will appear in the upper row of
the display.
Exercise Phase
4.If the Interval Alarm is activated (see “Interval Alarm,”
page 25) the beginning of each exercise phase is signaled
with one alarm beep. As each exercise phase begins, the
time remaining for that phase will begin to count down in
the upper row of the display, and the number of the cur
rent interval will be displayed briefly in the lower row of
the display.
30
Recovery Phase
Note: To select timed or heart rate-governed recovery, see
page 19).
5.Timed Recovery: If the Interval Alarm is activated, the
beginning of each recovery phase is signaled with two
alarm beeps, and “RCY” will flash at the top of the display.
As each recovery phase begins, the upper row of the
display will show a countdown timer that indicates time
remaining in the current recovery phase.
Heart Rate-governed Recovery: If the Interval alarm is activated, the beginning of each recovery phase is signaled
with two alarm beeps, and “RCY” will flash at the top of the
display. As each recovery phase begins, the upper row of
the display will show a standard timer, which indicates time
accumulated in the current recovery phase.
6.If the Interval Alarm is activated, the end of the interval
session (the end of the last recovery phase) is signaled
with three alarm beeps.
7.To stop the timer during any exercise or recovery phase,
press the Stop/Adj button. This will also stop the
stopwatch. A press of the Start/Lap button will restart the
timer and the stopwatch from the point at which they
were stopped.
31
8.After the final recovery phase, "END" will appear in the
lower row of the display. This indicates the interval session
is complete. Data for each exercise and recovery phase
will be recorded in memory. To view this data, see "Viewing
Memory Recall Screens," page 35.
Reset
1. To reset the Interval Timer and Stopwatch, advance to the
Timer main screen (TMR) using the Mode button.
2. Press and hold the Stop/Adj button. Note: Resetting the
Interval Timer will clear all accumulated interval recall
data from memory.
Operating Time in Zone
See Figure A6 in Appendix.
Selecting Target Zone 1 or Zone 2
The 606 offers two programmable target zones, making it
easier to control the intensity of your workouts. Either zone
can be selected at any time before or during a workout.
During a workout, Above, In and Below Zone data will be
recorded only for the selected target zone. It is not possible
to record data in both zones simultaneously.
1. To select Zone 1 or Zone 2 as the active target zone,
advance to the Time in Zone main screen (TiZ) using the
Mode button.
32
2.Press and hold the Start/Lap button. “ZonE” will appear at
the top of the screen, and “1” or “2” will flash in the lower
row of the display.
3.Toggle between Zone 1 and Zone 2 with short presses of
the Stop/Adj button.
4. Once you have made your selection, press the Light
button to return to the main screen.
Time in Zone
From the Time in Zone main screen, you can view average
and maximum heart rate for the entire workout, and the
amount of time spent above, in and below the preset target
zones. Time is expressed in hours, minutes and seconds,
and also as a percentage of total workout time.
Timing and heart rate calculation begin automatically provided that the heart rate function and stopwatch have been
activated, and that the receiver is receiving a signal from
the chest transmitter belt.
Time accumulated in the currently selected Target Zone is
displayed in the upper row of the Time In Zone main screen.
To view time above and below zone, see "Viewing Memory
Recall Screens", page 35.
Note: Time in Zone and heart rate data accumulate only
while the stopwatch is running. If the stopwatch is not started at the beginning of a workout, no data will be recorded in
the Time in Zone recall screens.
33
Note: The maximum data accumulation time for all Time in
Zone recall screens combined (in, above and below Zone 1
plus in, above and below Zone 2) is 9 hours, 59 minutes, 59
seconds. At that point, no further data will be recorded until
the recall screens are reset. (See “Clearing Memory Recall
Screens,” p.42)
Heart Rate Recovery Timing
The 606 automatically records the amount of time it takes
your heart rate to descend from a preset upper limit to a
preset lower limit. Timing begins automatically when your
heart rate falls below the upper limit, and continues until
your heart rate falls below the lower limit. When ­timing
stops, the Heart Rate Recovery alarm will sound (if activated—see “Heart Rate Recovery Alarm,” page 24), and
recovery time will appear in the upper row of the display for
five seconds.
As your heart rate rises above the upper limit again, the
timer is automatically reset so that timing can begin again.
In other words, the 606 always records your most recent
recovery time.
Note: Recovery timing is automatically disabled when the
Interval Timer is in use.
To view your most recent recovery time, see
"Viewing Memory Recall Screens", p.35.

Replacing Batteries
Transmitter Battery
(Battery type: 3V Lithium 2032)
To open the battery compartment cover, remove the four
screws from the corner of the cover (see figure 3). Before
removing the battery, note its orientation. The positive pole
should face the compartment cover, and the negative pole
should contact the metal prongs inside the battery compartment. Orient the replacement battery in the same manner.
To ensure continued water resistance, make sure the rubber
O-ring is still in place around the inside edge of the compartment before replacing the cover.
Figure 3 When changing
the transmitter battery,
remember to replace
O-ring correctly.
Watch Receiver Battery
(Battery type: 3V Lithium 2025)
To prevent damage to the receiver’s water-tight seal, we
recommend taking your receiver to a jeweler or watch
repair shop for battery replacement.
44
Troubleshooting
What if the heart rate reading is erratic or ­totally absent?
1. Make sure the chest strap is sufficiently tight. The strap
should be positioned and tightened so that the electrodes
are flat against your skin. Adjust the strap side to side or
slightly up or down until the strap is positioned properly,
and the electrodes make solid contact with your skin.
2. Make sure the electrode strips are sufficiently moist.
Moisture enables the electrodes to make proper
electrical contact. Moisten the electrode strips with
water, saliva or Axiom Heartbeat Signal Enhancer
(item # 40-0579). If you are wearing the transmitter strap
over a shirt, make sure the shirt is moistened to provide
adequate electrical contact for the electrodes.
Accumulated sweat or dirt on the electrode strips may
impair electrical contact. Make sure the electrode strips
are clean.
3. Make sure you have activated the heart rate function with
a long press (press and hold) of the Mode button in any
main screen.
4. Make sure the transmitter battery is installed properly and
fully charged.
What if the heart rate reading becomes extremely high?
Electromagnetic signals from outside sources may cause
45
abnormally high heart rate readings. Common sources of
electromagnetic signals are high voltage power lines, motor
driven equipment, and other heart rate monitor users. Check
your surroundings for possible sources of electromagnetic
signals, and move away from the source.
Note: The 606 automatically records the highest maximum
heart rate attained during a workout. It cannot, however,
distinguish between genuine heart rate signals, and artificially high heart rate signals caused by electrical interference. For this reason, the 606 may occasionally record an
artificially high maximum heart rate caused by electrical
interference encountered during a workout.
