What is and how to use the Cardio Coach?

When using the Biostrap external heart rate monitor, you can access our Cardio Coach feature when selecting a featured activity such as running, elliptical, rowing machine, cycling, stair stepper.

The Cardio Coach will present a suggested a time as well as a workout goal for endurance, interval training, fat burning, or a custom workout when starting the activity with an external heart rate monitor.

The Cardio Coach will use your max heart rate, current heart rate and cadence metrics to give you suggestions during the workout to stay within the parameters of that workout mode.

To use the Cardio Coach:

  1. Make sure your external heart rate monitor is connected in the Settings page
  2. Go to Record > Activity > Running
