Watch Usage Tips

  • Before starting warmup, press the START button
  • Select “Outdoor Run” and start the activity   
  • For intervals, drills, and sprints
    • Use page 2 of the data screens to check heart rate and lap times and pace. 
    • Use the lap key to time intervals or drills
  • For road/trail/easy runs
    • Use page 1 of the data screens
    • Press the lap key when you leave for your run
    • Press the lap key any time to mark changes in the workout
  • When the workout is done, stop and SAVE the activity

When using a fitness watch it is important to record your entire workout as one session. Start the watch just before warming up and stop it when you’re done. If you need intermediate times for intervals, etc use the lap button on the watch rather than stopping and starting new data sessions.
