Using Suunto Smart Heart Rate Belt

  2. Start your recording in the paired sports watch or other Bluetooth® Smart enabled device. (see Pairing).
  3. Complete your activity and then stop the recording.
  4. Take off and rinse your heart rate belt or other Movesense garment (see Handling guidelines).
NOTE:

Dry skin under the belt electrodes, a loose or worn out chest strap, and synthetic shirt materials can cause abnormally high heart rate readings. Moisten the belt electrodes well and tighten the belt to avoid heart rate peaks. If you are otherwise concerned about your heart rate, please consult a doctor.

Memory function

You can record your heart rate data when swimming, doing team sports or in any activity where the use of a watch or smartphone is not convenient.

To use Suunto Smart Heart Rate Belt memory function:

  2. Start your activity recording in your Suunto 3, 5, 9, Ambit3 or Traverse sports watch.
