Getting More Information
You can find more information about this product on the Garmin
website.
• Go to support.garmin.com for additional manuals, articles,
and software updates.
• Go to buy.garmin.com, or contact your Garmin dealer for
information about optional accessories and replacement
parts.
Optional Accessories
Optional accessories, such as mounts, maps, fitness
accessories, and replacement parts, are available at
http://buy.garmin.com or from your Garmin dealer.
tempe
The tempe is an ANT+ wireless temperature sensor. You can
attach the sensor to a secure strap or loop where it is exposed
to ambient air, and therefore, provides a consistent source of
accurate temperature data. You must pair the tempe with your
device to display temperature data from the tempe.
Tips for Pairing ANT+ Accessories with Your Garmin
Device
• Verify that the ANT+ accessory is compatible with your
Garmin device.
• Before you pair the ANT+ accessory with your Garmin
device, move 10 m (32.9 ft.) away from other ANT+
accessories.
• Bring the Garmin device within range 3 m (10 ft.) of the ANT+
accessory.
• After you pair the first time, your Garmin device automatically
recognizes the ANT+ accessory each time it is activated. This
process occurs automatically when you turn on the Garmin
device and only takes a few seconds when the accessories
are activated and functioning correctly.
• When paired, your Garmin device receives data from only
your accessory, and you can go near other accessories.
Troubleshooting
Restarting the Device
If the device stops responding, you may need to restart it. This
does not erase any of your data or settings.
1 Remove the batteries.
2 Reinstall the batteries.

About Heart Rate Zones
Many athletes use heart rate zones to measure and increase
their cardiovascular strength and improve their level of fitness. A
heart rate zone is a set range of heartbeats per minute. The five
commonly accepted heart rate zones are numbered from 1 to 5
according to increasing intensity. Generally, heart rate zones are
calculated based on percentages of your maximum heart rate.
Fitness Goals
Knowing your heart rate zones can help you measure and
improve your fitness by understanding and applying these
principles.
• Your heart rate is a good measure of exercise intensity.
• Training in certain heart rate zones can help you improve
cardiovascular capacity and strength.
If you know your maximum heart rate, you can use the table
(Heart Rate Zone Calculations, page 18) to determine the best
heart rate zone for your fitness objectives.
If you do not know your maximum heart rate, use one of the
calculators available on the Internet. Some gyms and health
centers can provide a test that measures maximum heart rate.
The default maximum heart rate is 220 minus your age.
