TRAINING LOAD FOCUS

This stat shows how your training load breaks down by categories of intensity and if that breakdown is balanced, focused or lacking in one or more areas.

TRAINING STATUS

This metric evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching.

Our latest generation sensor provides heart rate data6 and alerts if your heart rate stays high while you’re at rest. Gauge how hard your heart is working during activities, even underwater.
