Sport Profile Settings

The Sport Profile feature helps you start your training session with ease. The training computer provides five sport profiles; one for running, two for cycling and two for other sports.

Adjust the settings for the sport profiles to suit your training needs in MENU > Settings > Sport Profiles. You can, for example, activate the sensors you want to use in the sport. Then when you start a training session using the sport profile, the training computer detects the needed sensors automatically.

The heart rate sensor is on by default in every sport. Due to this, the training computer will automatically start searching for the heart rate sensor signal once you press START in time view. If you bought a set which does not include a heart rate sensor, turn it off in MENU > Settings > Sport Profiles > Sport > Heart rate sensor > Off.

For more information on the sport profile settings, see Sport Profile Settings.

When you activate an optional sensor (s3+ stride sensor, CS speed sensor W.I.N.D. or CS cadence sensor W.I.N.D.) for the first time, it needs to be paired with the training computer. For more information on pairing a sensor with the training computer, see 10. New Accessory.
