There are four sport profiles shown in the pre-training mode by default. In the Flow web service you can add new sports to your list, and sync them to your M400. You can have a maximum of 20 sports on your M400 at a time. The number of sport profiles in the Flow web service is not limited.

By default, in the Sport profiles you'll find:

  • Running

If you have edited your sport profiles in the Flow web service before your first training session,and synced them to your M400, the sport profile list will contain the edited sport profiles.
