Workout

Workout

The Workout page enables new Workouts to be initiated and recorded.

To Start a New Workout:

  1. Make sure the device has Bluetooth turned on so it can communicate with your sensor(s).
  2. Select what kind of workout you wish to do from the list of workout types using the slider.
  3. Select if you wish to have Audio Announcements turned on or off.
  4. If you have a TICKR Run or TICKR X, select what you would like the double tap function to perform.
  5. Make sure the sensor(s) you plan to use are awake and paired to your device.
  6. Select the green “Start” button to begin the workout.

During a Workout:

  • To Pause your Workout: Once a workout has started, the green “Start” button will change to become a red “Pause” button. Use this button to pause the workout at any time or to finish your workout. The header bar will flash red while paused to indicate that no work is being recorded during this time.
  • To View your Workout Screens: Swipe left or right to navigate through the screens available for the given workout type. The number and position of the screens is indicated by the grey line of circles displayed above the lap button. The screens to the far left of the default screen are for GPS tracking (if available) and operate your music playlist; the screens to the right are customisable and will reflect the data you have selected to display for that workout.
  • To Start a New Lap: The black “Lap” button located at the bottom left corner of the screen will initiate a new lap. Tap once to begin a new lap & a summary of the previous lap results will be displayed. This will dismiss automatically after 5 seconds, or you can dismiss the results early by selecting “Dismiss” at the bottom of the window.
  • To Lock the Screen: Press and hold the Padlock icon until the animation completes (around 2 seconds) to lock the screen on a given page (you will then need to swipe right to unlock).
  • View/Manage Sensors: Select the Sensor icon from the top left corner of the screen to view the menu of sensors that are linked to this workout type. Any that are currently active will display their signal strength on the far right next to the Bluetooth icon. KICKR users: You can calibrate your KICKR during a workout by selecting the hammer and spanner icon and following the prompts.
  • Settings: Select the Gear icon from the top right corner to toggle Audio Announcements and adjust screen brightness. Select the Gear icon again to close the menu.
  • KICKR users: Swipe right until the end of the screens to view the KICKR page. This page enables you to view your workout and control the KICKR. Depending on your preference, there are four options:
    • Level mode: Use the “-“ & “+” buttons to change the power curve. Increasing numbers increases the grade, to a maximum of 4.5%. Using this option is similar to a fluid or wind trainer, the faster you pedal, the harder it gets.
    • Resistance mode: Use the “-“ & “+” buttons to change the resistance.  Increasing numbers increases the resistance, to a maximum of 100%. Using this option is similar to adjusting the brake on a stationary bike. Regardless of speed, the brake will remain set until you adjust it.
    • ERG mode: Use the “+” & “-“ buttons to select your preferred power output. Using this option will cause the KICKR to increase/decrease resistance in order to produce a constant power output, regardless of speed. e.g. If your cadence drops, resistance will increase to enable the same power output.
    • Sim mode: Enter your slope (grade), wind speed (headwind) and your bike type to simulate the power curve associated with those factors in an outdoor ride. Ensure that your weight and tire size has been set up in order to ensure accurate power calculations (Wheel Circumference is accessible in the Saved Sensors>KICKR menu, your weight in the Settings>My Details menu).
  • To Finish a Workout:
    1. Select the red “Pause” button from the bottom right side of the screen. Once paused, the red “Stop” button will replace the “Lap” button on the bottom left side of the screen.
    2. Select “Stop” and you will be prompted to save (exit) or return to your workout. The summary of your workout will now be displayed.
    3. Select “Done” to exit or use the “Share” button to export your workout to another app. To view the workout again, or view another, return to the History menu to peruse all stored workouts.
