Training modes mean the different ways a training equipment can be set to control and maintain the training intensity. Using the different modes will make the training more versatile, motivating, and even more effective. Usually, the same modes can be used either in manual training in which you select the mode and then adjust the intensity manually during training, or in pre-set profiles in which the training equipment will control the changes of intensity partially or totally automatically.

1. Constant Watt in which you set the training intensity in watts (W). In this mode, the wattage is independent of the pedaling speed (rpm).
2. Constant Resistance in which you set the training intensity in Newton meters (Nm), i.e. you set the torque, i.e. the power needed to turn the cranks. The pedaling effect is the same as with a single-speed bicycle – the faster you pedal, the higher the output power (= intensity / watts). In these profiles the wattage is dependent of the pedaling speed (rpm). The popular name for this mode is manual mode. The name is derived from the fact that especially in earlier fitness equipment, the resistance was set manually. Fitness cycles use only this mode.
3. Constant Heart Rate in which you set the desired heart rate level for the exercise.

In all these constant modes you set the desired intensity level prior to the start of the training, and the training equipment automatically controls the brake so that the set intensity level remains. Obviously, you can change the intensity level in all these modes during training.

Profile scaling
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. Similarily, 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.

Permanent Magnet Brake
In the permanent magnet system there is a magnet caliper or fork, i.e. a moving element to which pieces of magnet are attached. The resistance is generated by adjusting the distance of the magnets to the flywheel: the closer to the flywheel the magnets are, the greater the resistance to the flywheel and cranks. The features of this system are:

1. 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. quiet in use as there are no wearing parts
4. the permanent magnet brake can be adjusted either electronically with the assistance of a servomotor from the console or manually with an adjustment knob
5. the magnets Tunturi uses have an effect radius of about 10 cm, and they do not cause radiation or electronic disturbances to their environment
6. very smooth resistance feeling, impact-free

Heart rate measurement
The heart rate measurement is based on electrical impulses registered from the heart, whereas pulse meters measure peripheral circulation e.g. via an ear clip or a handgrip to calculate the pulse rate. If you use a heart rate controlled exercise program or if the heart rate value is of importance to you, Tunturi recommends using a transmitter belt for continuous heart rate measurement. Pulse measurement is in principle equally accurate, but functionally more limited and for some users unreliable way of measurement.

Wireless (Telemetric) Heart Rate Measurement

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 distance.

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.

How the heart rate is measured?

As the heart rate level changes constantly, the displayed value is always an average from a certain time period. Manufacturers use different algorithms, i.e. mathematical formulas, to calculate the average heart rate value. For this reason, the heart rate values shown in heart rate receiving watches and in Tunturi meter consoles may differ slightly. The faster the change in the heart rate level, the greater the variation in different receivers. Note, too, that Tunturi does not recommend using two receivers in training simultaneously: in some cases a watch receiver may cause interference to the meter console heart rate measurement.

Handgrip Pulse Measurement
Handgrip pulse is also an easy method for measuring the pulse. It does not require any additional devices, the measuring sensors are an integral part of the product. The pulse measurement is effected by touching the two sensors in the handlebar simultaneously. Handgrip measurement requires that the skin is constantly touching the sensors and that the skin is slightly moist.
