1. Important information
Before using for the first time, read these instructions thoroughly, keep them safely for future
reference and also allow other users access to them.
IMPORTANT:
This heart rate monitor (without chest strap) allows you to monitor your heart rate and set a training zone
with upper and lower limits according to your training objective. The heart beat is measured and displa-
yed with ECG precision, without your having to wear a cumbersome chest strap. All you need do is at-
tach the monitor to your wrist and touch the sensor on the face of the monitor with your finger or thumb.
Your heart beat can be determined within seconds with ECG precision by finger sensor measurement on
the arm, upper part of the body or other arm in relation to a sensor on the back of the heart rate monitor.
This heart rate monitor is thus particularly suitable for persons who cannot or do not wish to wear a chest

strap as well as for sports such as hiking or walking. Other features of this heart rate monitor include a
time function, stopwatch, wake alarm and countdown timer.
2. Important information
– This heart rate monitor is only designed for private use and is not intended for medical purposes.
– Never expose the device to any extreme temperatures, vibrations or shocks.
– Clean the device with a soft, slightly damp cloth. Never use any abrasives or solvents!
– Always have the battery replaced at a specialist store (CR2025 3 V lithium battery).
– Used batteries do not belong in domestic waste. Please take them to the appropriate collection points
or leave them at the retailer.
– Never try to repair the device yourself. In the event of any complaint, contact your dealer or the service
address. Before making any complaint, always have the battery replaced first. The guarantee becomes
null and void if the device is opened or handled incorrectly.
– Bear in mind that, with high-risk sports, use of a heart rate monitor constitutes an additional source of
injury.
– This device should only be used for the purpose for which it was developed, in the way specified in
the instructions for use. Any improper use may be dangerous. The manufacturer is not liable for any
damage caused by improper or incorrect use.
– Before use, make sure that the device and accessories do not show any visible signs of damage. If in
doubt, do not use it and contact your dealer or the customer service address indicated.
– This heart rate monitor is waterproof (50 m) and is thus suitable for swimming. You should not, howe-
ver, press any button while swimming, i.e. you should also not measure your heart rate.
– Avoid contact with suncreams or similar products as these might damage the print or even the plastic
parts.

– Please ask your trainer or doctor in charge about your own upper and lower heart rate values for
training purposes, as well as how long and often you should exercise. This will allow you to achieve
optimal results during training.
– IMPORTANT: Anyone with a cardio-circulatory disease or wearing a pacemaker should only use this
heart rate monitor after consulting their doctor.
3. General information for training
This heart rate monitor serves to measure the human pulse. By means of various settings, you can
support your individual training program and monitor your pulse. You should monitor your pulse during
exercise because you should prevent your heart from excessive strain on the one hand and on the other
in order to achieve the optimal training results. The table provides you with some information on the
selection of your training zone. The maximum heart rate reduces with advancing age. Information on the
training heart rate must therefore always be in relation to the maximum heart rate. The following rule of
thumb is used for the identification of the maximum heart rate:
For men:		 220 - age = maximum heart rate
For women: 226 - age = maximum heart rate
Page: 20
21
The following example is for a 40 year old male: 220 - 40 = 180

8. Heart rate measurement
• Fasten the monitor to your wrist.
• Place one finger on the sensor and hold it down for at least 5 seconds. Make sure that the
sensor at the back of the casing fits closely to the skin. At first, the display reads „---“.
• After 5 to 8 seconds, the heart rate reading is displayed.
• If the heart rate alarm is switched on, the relative heart rate is also displayed.
• If the measured heart rate is below the lower heart rate limit, this is indicated by an „L“. Any value
above the upper heart rate limit is indicated by an „H“.
• If, in pulse alarm mode, pulse limits according to age and gender have also not changed, the measured
heart rate in the fitness performance range (between 65% and 85% of the maximum heart rate) is
displayed graphically.
• 5 seconds after releasing the button, the heart rate monitor returns to the previous mode.
Advice and tips
1.Heart rate measurement is possible in any function mode.
2.One sensor is fitted on the back of the monitor casing. The sensor has to have constant, firm contact
with the skin.
3.Never measure heart rate under water.
Page: 25

4.Clean the back of the monitor occasionally using a damp cloth.
5.Never use any skin cream when using the heart rate monitoring feature.
6.Clean your skin and fingers with soap in order to ensure better signal transmission.
7.With very dry or thick skin, there may be transmission problems.
8.Moisten the tips of your fingers or use a conductive paste.
9.When measuring, avoid any twisting or bending your wrist.
9. Alarm function for heart rate
You can input a training zone with upper and lower training heart rates. When monitoring heart rate,
two beeps indicate that you are outside the set training zone and that you can increase or reduce your
training accordingly. This will help you to attain defined training objectives more efficiently.
9.1 Setting training limits
You have two ways of doing this:
1.Enter your age and gender and the upper and lower limits for the fitness performance range (between
65% and 85% of the maximum heart rate) is calculated automatically. The graphic bar display is active
if the preset heart rate limits remain unchanged.
2.Set the upper and lower heart rate limits according to the information in the section „What you need to
know“ or ask your trainer or doctor. If you enter the heart rate limits yourself, the graphic representation
is not active.
• You are in pulse alarm mode.
• Hold the MODE button down for 3 seconds to enter setting mode. The „Age“ display starts
flashing. Now you can set your age using the Start/Stop button and the Reset button. Hold
the button depressed to change the numbers in fast mode. Confirm the entry with the MO-
DE button. This takes you to the next setting.
Page: 26
27
• The display starts flashing. Choose the gender M (male) or F (female) using the Start/Stop
button and the Reset button. Confirm with MODE.
• Now you can either confirm the specified value with the MODE button or set the required
heart rate with the Start/Stop button and Reset button.
• Do exactly the same with the lower limit value.
• Once all data has been set, press the MODE button for 3 seconds to exit setting mode. If no
buttons are pressed in setting mode within 60 seconds, the heart rate monitor automatically
reverts to time display.
9.2 Activating pulse alarm
• Switch to pulse alarm mode with the MODE button.
• If the heart rate alarm function is already active and the calculated heart rate limits have not been
altered after entering age and gender, the following parameters are consecutively displayed every 2
seconds
– upper training limit,
– lower training limit,
Page: 27
28
– age and gender.
If the heart rate limits have been entered directly, the display only switches between upper
and lower training limits.
• If the heart rate alarm function is switched off, „---“ and „oF“ appears in the display.
• Press the START/STOP button to switch the heart rate alarm function on or off.
With the pulse alarm activated, the following alarms are possible during heart rate measurement:
• heart rate is within the set training zone: 
pulse monitor beeps once.
• heart rate is above the set training zone: 
pulse monitor beeps twice, „H“ and actual heart rate
reading flashing.
• heart rate is below the set training zone: 
pulse monitor beeps twice, „L“ and actual heart rate
reading flashing.
10. Wake alarm mode
• You can switch the hourly signal on and off in wake alarm mode using the reset button.
If the hourly signal is activated, the bell symbol appears in the display and a signal
sounds every full hour.
• You can switch the wake alarm on and off in wake alarm mode using the start/stop but-
ton. If the wake alarm is activated, a symbol appears and the alarm sounds at the given
time for 30 seconds. Press any button (except the light button) to stop the alarm.

Page: 30
31
• You can then enter a new time.
• In the last 5 seconds of the countdown, a signal sounds for each remaining second. When zero is
reached, a signal sounds for 10 seconds.
• Press any button (except the light button) to stop the signal.
13. Troubleshooting
1. Dry skin
• Use a conductive paste or moisten fingers and wrist.
2. Fingers do not have any firm contact with the sensor
• Fingers (not just fingertips!) must lie flat and be firmly on the sensor, with the monitor sitting securely
on the wrist.
3. Hairy arms
• Use a conductive paste on the wrist.
4. Cardiac arrhythmia
• Correct pulse measurement is very difficult here, irregular measurement times are to be expected.
14. Battery and disposal
A lithium battery is included in the scope of supply and has already been inserted. Battery life is approxi-
mately 18 months.
The battery for the heart rate monitor should only be replaced by a specialist (any watch repairs shop).
