You can select a quick start, set a target (of distance to run, calories to burn etc) or start a planned session (through MotoActv.com training portal).
There is also "Challenges" where you can join online (via MotoActv.com portal) to compete with others. Alternatively, another advantage of MotoActv is "Personal Best" where you can challenge yourself with a virtual opponent to beat the best of your personal records (distance, calories burned). I was told by a hardcore runner this feature is not found in many other brands.
Wait for all the sensors to be detected and press the Start button.
You can toggle between screens for real time statistics...
The screen and metrics are customizable in the setup.
You can also pause and resume during the workout by pressing the Start button. Tap the End Workout button on the screen if you have completed the activity.
Now I must praise MotoActv again, it's worry and hassle free that the watch syncs automatically whenever you return home if you have your home wireless setup properly on the watch. For instance, I just leave it on my work table after exercise, the workout data syncs automatically and is ready at MotoActv.com after my bath. No cable, no PC, cool huh? As far as I know, none of the fitness watch has this feature!
Let's take a rest now after the workout. The next post shall cover some details about MotoActv.com portal.
