Before beginning any exercise program, consult your physician. This is important especially if you are over the age of 45 or individuals with pre-existing health problems.The pulse sensors are not medical devices. Various factors, including the user’s movement, may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The pulse sensors are intended only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general.
Exercising is great way to control your weight, improving your fitness and reduce the effect of aging and stress. The key to success is to make exercise a regular and enjoyable part of your everyday life.The condition of your heart and lungs and how efficient they are in delivering oxygen via your blood to your muscles is an important factor to your fitness. Your muscles use this oxygen to provide enough energy for daily activity. This is called aerobic activity. When you are fit, your heart will not have to work so hard. It will pump a lot fewer times per minute, reducing the wear and tear of your heart.So as you can see, the fitter you are, the healthier and greater you will feel.
Start each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching and some light exercises. A proper warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate and circulation in preparation for exercise. Ease into your exercise.After warming up, increase the intensity to your desired exercise program. Be sure to maintain your intensity for maximum performance. Breathe regularly and deeply as you exercise.
Finish each workout with a light jog or walk for at least 1 minute. Then complete 5 to 10 minutes of stretching to cool down. This will increase the flexibility of your muscles and will help prevent post exercise problems.
This is how your pulse should behave during general fitness exercise. Remember to warm up and cool down for a few minutes.

HAND PULSE TECHNOLOGY
This product comes equipped with hand pulse sensors which are used to pick up tiny EKG/ECG signals that run through the body when your heart beats. These electrical EKG/ECG signals are very small and must be amplified 1000 times to make the signal viable for the computer to display your pulse.
To ensure proper operation:
- The user must maintain good, consistent contact on all four sensors.
- The users skin cannot be too dry or too wet.
Other factors that could affect the reading:
- Change of grip on the sensors (during slow pace walking and up to running).
- Tightening of hand muscles will produce small electrical signal.
- Static electricity charges from the air or from walking on the treadmill.
EKG/ECG Sensors may filter through actual EKG/ECG signals and “Noise” factors that may affect the reading. This will cause the pulse reading to be delayed and will take longer to update the display as the heart rate changes. Too much noise will create an incorrect reading. Medical conditions or having no electrical signal in the hands are other factors that may also affect pulse readings.
These are limitations of hand pulse technology and even the most expensive systems (which can cost upwards of $3,000) used in hospitals have the same problems. The difference is that a patient in a hospital is not running on a treadmill. Hand pulse technologies work well on stationary exercise machines like bikes and even elliptical cross trainers but are not perfect on a treadmill. We offer treadmills with a wireless heart rate receiver which may be the more accurate option.
To test if your hand pulse sensors are working up to specification, hold them while standing on the sidestep rails, not walking, and see if the reading is more in line with what you would expect. This will eliminate the movement and static electricity factors. If your hands are dry, then wet them slightly (saliva works as a great conductor if this doesn’t bother you).
