Looking for ways to optimize your athletic performance this year? Now you can connect your Smartwatch and Bluetooth LE Heart Rate Monitor to get even better results with Workout Trainer. By incorporating heart rate data during your workouts, Workout Trainer analyzes your performance afterwards so you can effectively reach your new year’s resolutions.
You might be wondering, why does this matter? For one, you can train in specific heart rate zones like fat-burning. You can also train to lower your resting heart rate during Rest periods in your workouts; a key success factor for peak athletic performance.
Sounds great! Now, how does it work? Let’s take a look.
Getting Set Up
Download the latest Workout Trainer app update on your Android and iOS devices. Make sure you have Workout Trainer on your smartwatch and/or your bluetooth heart rate monitor sharing heart rate data to apps. On Android, remember that you’ll need to download the Workout Trainer companion app onto your smartwatch and make sure the two are synced before you start working out. If you’re using a bluetooth heart rate monitor on either platform, check that the device is sharing its heart rate data via bluetooth.
For smartwatch users, make sure you accept the permission to share heart rate date when you load a workout.
You can see if your heart rate devices are connected and working together on the overlay before you hit the PLAY button!
Heart Rate Feedback
Once you’re set up you’ll be able to enjoy advanced heart rate feedback for all workouts completed while paired with your smartwatch or bluetooth heart rate monitor. Instantly track your heart rate during your workouts and get a summary of your performance with key metrics that’ll help you achieve better results.
Optimize Your Training
Workout Trainer PRO+ members will have access to the advanced Compare and Analyze tool to help members and trainers review their performance, and their clients’ performance, against past workouts. This will help measure progress over time, all the way down to the exercise level! More details on this soon 🙂
