Zone Transition Alerts
This is a master switch which will turn off or on audio alerts for Heart Rate transitions.
Reads the Zone Number (Zone 1, Zone 2… etc.)
Reads the Zone Name. Note for fun you can customize your heart rate zones and it will read what you call them. In our Simplified zones, for example, the main zone is called the GO zone. An Advanced Voice feature only.
Reads the Zone BPM range. It’s a great feature for those getting started to learn their zones better. It reads it in ascending order when entering from below (Entering Zone 2 from 100 to 120 bpm), or in descending order if dropping from above to a lower zone (Entering Zone 2 from 120 to 100 bpm).
Target Zone Coaching
This gives you the ability to be prompted every few minutes or so (you set the time interval) on whether you are In, Above or Below a Structured Workout target zone. Only available for Structured Workouts.
