Wireless (Telemetric) Heart Rate
Tunturi recommends using the heart rate belt
due to its superior reliability and accuracy. Most Tunturi fitness equipment
have an inbuilt heart rate receiver for measuring heart rate wirelessly,
i.e. telemetrically. When using telemetric measurement, moisten the
electrodes carefully and attach the belt so that the electrodes are tightly
against the skin. The belt transmits the heart rate signal to appr. 1 meter
When selecting training attire, please note
that some fibers used in clothes (e.g. polyester, polyamide) create static
electricity, which may prevent reliable heart rate measurement. Please note
that a mobile phone, television and other electrical appliances form an
electromagnetic field around them, which may cause problems in heart rate
measurement. If you suspect this, move your equipment to another place and
check the function of heart rate measurement. Tunturi delivers only uncoded
Polar transmitters with selected equipment. Notice that uncoded transmitters
disturb one another if they are used close (less than 1.5 m) to each other
The electro-magnetic brake is the latest
brake system introduced to the fitness equipment. The basic system is
simple: the exerciser controls the current fed to the electromagnet from the
console; the more current is fed to the electromagnet, the greater the
resistance to the flywheel and cranks. The features of this system are:
1. no moving parts, no wearing parts,
maintenance free, very low probability of any malfunctions
2. practically no need for re-calibration: the products are calibrated in
the production, and basicly only product abuse can alter the calibration.
The re-calibration is possible with a dynamometer
3. very quiet in use as there are no moving or wearing parts
4. extremely accurate, resistance setting in small intervals
5. very smooth resistance feeling, impact-free
The basic idea of profile scaling is to
ensure that you can always use the pre-set profiles to maximum effect.
Everyone knows that the required training intensity varies – sometimes you
want to exercise hard, sometimes an easy and short exercise is just right.
In order to take the exerciser’s current training capacity into account, the
exerciser must have the possibility to adjust, i.e. to scale the intensity
and duration of the pre-set profiles.
The scaling of intensity (speed, elevation,
watt, Nm, HR) can take place either before or during training: if you notice
that the profile is too low for you, you can scale it upward simply by
pressing one key until the desired level is reached. Similarly, scaling the
profiles down is possible. In scaling, the pre-set profile form will remain,
but the profile intensity level will go up or down. Prior to the start of
the exercise, you can set the desired duration (time, in some cases
distance) of the profile.
In brief, scaling is the ultimate application
for personalized, effective training.
In the pre-set
training profiles, the changes of training intensity will take place
automatically - this makes training interesting and motivating. Furthermore,
Tunturi have carefully designed the pre-set training profiles for various
exercise targets, and they give maximum effect towards the desired exercise
target. In brief, the greatest benefit of the pre-set profiles is that they
make effective training very easy.
In cycles and ellipticals,
Tunturi uses another three profile modes:
1. Watt (or power) profiles in which the
training intensity is pre-set in watts (W); in display, the higher the
profile, the higher the intensity in watts. In these profiles the wattage is
independent of the pedaling speed (rpm).
2. Resistance profiles in which the training intensity is pre-set in Newton
meters (Nm). In these profiles the torque, i.e. the power needed to turn the
cranks is pre-set. Again, the higher the displayed profile, the higher the
intensity. However, the pedaling effect is the same as with a single-speed
bicycle – the faster you pedal, the higher the output power (= intensity /
watts). In other words, in these profiles the wattage is dependent of the
pedaling speed (rpm).
3. Heart rate controlled profiles in which the profile shows the run of
heart rate during the exercise.
