ICONS
MEANING
ABOUT
Cadence
The revolutions per minute (rpm) of the cranks at which you pedal.
Current percent grade
The degree of inclination.
Distance
The length of the ride.
Kilojoules
The kilojoule is a measure of energy exerted over time. It is the average
power output in watts mulitplied by time in seconds divided by 1000.
Power
Measured in watts where work is equal to force times distance.
Time
The duration of the ride.
Normalized Power
An estimate of the power that could have been maintained, had power
been perfectly constant.
Heart rate
The number of heart beats per minute (bpm).
Speed
The rate of motion.
Watts/Kg
Power divided by the rider’s weight in kilograms.
This compares power values from rider to rider.

CHAPTER 7: IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS
Keep eyes on the road. Do not become overly engaged with display.
We recommend getting familiar with the computer functions while stationary.
The computer and chest strap are water resistant, not waterproof. Avoid sustained water contact and do
not deliberately place in water or under high-pressure sprays.
Avoid spraying the unit directly with solvent. Do not use thinner or other solvents to clean parts.
Failure to adhere to these precautions may cause premature failure or incorrect operation of the unit and
may void the warranty.
