Smart Coaching Features

  • Endurance Programs: These running and cycling programs include recommended warm-up, exercise, and cool-down phases for every training session. The programs are customized to your specific needs and fitness level, optimizing your endurance training by adapting and updating your training routines every four weeks.
  • Fitness Test: If you’re looking to improve your fitness and want to keep up-to-date with how well you’re doing, the smart Fitness Test provides crucial data in just five minutes. By regularly comparing your test results, you can see what progress you are making and how your fitness is improving.
  • Running Index: Regular use over time allows you to see how efficient your running is. Your Running Index score is calculated automatically after every run, based on your heart rate and speed data collected from your GPS or stride sensor.
  • Smart Calories: OwnCal accurately calculates the number of calories expended during a training session based on your weight, height, age, gender, individual maximum heart rate (HRmax), and how hard you’re training.
  • Training Load: Shows at-a-glance info regarding your daily cumulative training load, and advises if and when rest days are needed, and when it’s best to train harder in order to maintain your performance improvement.
  • Zone Optimizer: By using ZoneOptimizer, you can achieve the training effect you’re looking for, as the feature adjusts your five heart rate training zones to match your body’s current physiological condition.
