For running and cycling you can train in one of five intensity zones:
5. Sprint: mostly used as part of interval training.
4. Speed: high tempo training to improve your speed and fitness.
3. Endure: moderate to high tempo training to improve your lung and heart capacity.
2. Fat Burn: moderate tempo training, great for weight loss.
1. Easy: easy tempo training, mostly used for warm-up and cool down.

Choose a heart rate zone

Before your run or cycle, choose a specific heart rate zone you wish to train in.

Cycling and Swimming

If you use your TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio while cycling, there are two ways you can measure your heart rate.
1. If you are wearing the watch on your wrist, you can use the built-in Heart Rate Monitor.
2. If you place the watch module in the bike dock, you will need a separate Heart Rate Monitor chest strap accessory.
It is not possible to measure your heart rate while swimming.




Race yourself: Compare your current activity with past performances. See in “real-time” where you are compared to your best or last activity so you can continue to improve.



Challenge yourself: See that you are on track to achieve your goals. Set a distance, time or calorie goal and check your progress in a simple full screen graphic.

Set your goal and receive alerts when you’re halfway there, almost there and when you have achieved your goal.



Interval training: Improve speed and cardio fitness with Interval Training. Start with a warm up, then alternate bursts of high and low intensity exercise as many times as you like, and finish with a cool down. Each interval can be either a fixed time or distance.
