Training and exercise
Training goals are basically the targets you set yourself when you start using your Easysmart HR. They are expressed as the number of steps you take during the day. The experts suggest that for an active and healthy lifestyle you need to take at least 10,000 steps.
How do I find out how much closer I am to my goal?
In the exercise section of your app you’ll be able to check in real time the movements you have made on an hourly basis; in actual fact you’ll find sessions lasting roughly half an hour each in which for every single pre-uploaded sport you’ll see the percentage of hourly goal achieved and the calories you’ve burned up to that particular moment.
Exercise is tracked daily and is based on the number of steps you take during the day. You can, however, set dedicated exercise activities so that your situation is as personalised and consistent with your daily activities as possible.
Do you want to go for a run and record your performance? You can set the exercise so as to track your run from start to finish. During the recording of a sports session, in addition to your average speed and all the data that are usually measured, you will have your heart rate monitored in real time, subdivided into three stages. All your data will be available on the display of your Easysmart HR and you’ll be able to check you heart rate and your running speed in real time. Based on your heart rate, your Easysmart HR will automatically detect what level you are at.
Starting a training session directly form your smartwatch is very easy. Note that you can decide whether or not to take your smartphone with you during your training. It isn’t essential, but if you take it with you, in addition to your exercise related data you’ll also have a map of the route you have taken.
Press the centre button on the right side of your Easysmart HR to view the exercise counter. This is an interactive interface that tells you the total number of steps you’ve taken and displays a graphic image of your positioning in relation to total number of steps you’ve set as your goal.
By pressing the centre button on the right side of your Easysmart HR again, you’ll view the selection menu. From this menu, you can select the Run function if you wish to record a training session, we’ll explore this function in more detail in the upcoming points, or you can view the total counters of your goals, that is, the percentage of progress towards your goal in relation to the one you’ve set yourself.
You will only view this notification if your smartwatch is not connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth when you begin a training session. It is important to check the connection of the two devices so as not to lose any data and thus avoid cancelling the data collected during the exercises. If you see this message you can exit the training menu and proceed with the Bluetooth connection of the devices.
If there are no connection problems as shown in the preceding point, you’ll be directed to the start page for the exercise. You can then start tracking it simply by pressing the button corresponding to the Go command.
You’ll see the pre-start countdown followed by the control screen. The screen displayed on your smartwatch will be organised as follows:
- Pulse rate in real time, showing your current heart rate stage
- Number of km covered
- Time for covering 1 km
- Average speed
- Calories burned
All this information can be viewed directly on your Easysmart HR display in real time simply by pressing the buttons on the right side of your smartwatch, specifically the first button at the top and the third at the bottom of the right side.
What do I need to know about fitness tracking on the Easysmart HR?
Any fitness training tracked on your device will be displayed under the “Data” section of your app; always remember that all the information on the training sessions can be seen in this section.
To see the details of the various sessions just tap on the running man icon shown in the screenshot below:
The recorded data can be consulted more analytically by tapping on the relevant recap section highlighted in the red box shown in the second screenshot.
Does my Easysmart HR have a GPS function?
No, your Easysmart HR does not have this feature.
What is the exercise reminder?
This is a warning you can set to remind yourself to move if you’re inactive. It’s a useful feature if you have a sedentary lifestyle, in which case we recommend activating it; if you are active then don’t worry, you won’t see this notification very often.
Every half hour you will feel your Easysmart HR vibrating to remind you that you should move around. This will only happen if you haven’t moved at all for half an hour.
