New Features! Here’s one: Current Class Menu

The “Current Class” menu gives you the ability to add class notes which appear on reports. The “Class Summary Detail” page provides you with current class averages.

The new “Save Peak Value During Session” feature allows you to run a “field” test (PACER test for example) to capture a student’s peak heart rate, set the max heart rate for that student, calculates individualized zones and save that information to the student record.

Additionally the “Current Class” menu gives you the ability to set class length of time for “Star” reward. Input the set class length (minutes) and the Heart Zones System calculates Fit Points for classes which drives the “Star” reward on each tile.

New Expanded Settings Menu!

Our updated settings menu is more robust than ever. Within the “Settings” menu, you now have the ability to:

  • export classes, participants and shared sensor files
  • Log-in and log-out of app
  • Edit the email format for emails that can automatically sent to participants
  • Set the tiles to show Max heart rate as a percentage
  • Change the tile layout to show the participants sensor number and not their name
  • Lock the remote tile flip feature
  • Blink 3.0 power down
  • Change the tile background color to be gradient, a solid color or no color at all
  • Within the “Settings” menu you can also set the default heart rate, step and power zones
