Entry to calculate the maximum heart rate.

(BMI) Body Mass Index

Does not influence the program's functions!

BMI calculation:

Example: MARIO

Weight 93.5 kg

Weight 1.92 m

Standard values:
Below 18: You are underweight; it is recommended that you gain weight to improve your general health and performance.
18 – 25: You are of normal weight.
26 – 30: You are slightly overweight and should lose weight if you already have an illness, e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, lipometabolism.
Above 30: You are urgently advised to lose weight.

MARIO's result in our example lies within the recommended normal weight range between 18 and 25, with a BMI of 25.4.

Energy (exercise bikes)

Calculates the body's energy exchange to apply the mechanical energy with an efficacy of xx%. The body converts the remaining xx% into heat.
Exercise bike/racing bike: 25% mechanical energy, 75% body heat
Cross trainer: 16.7% mechanical energy, 83.3 % body heat

Fat burning pulse

Calculated value of: 65% of maximum heart rate

Fitness grade

Two heart rate values are calculated. At the start of the measurement (P1 = working heart rate at the end of training session) and after a minute (P2 = recovery heart rate).

The following case distinctions have to be carried out to calculate the fitness grade:

1. P1 is less than P2 (P1 - P2 negative)
The fitness grade 6.0 is issued, displayed heart rate difference = 0
(In this case you should definitely consult a doctor).
2. The value in brackets is greater than 5.0
The fitness grade 1.0 is issued
3. P1 is greater than P2 and the value in brackets is within a range from 0 to 5.0

The fitness grade is calculated based on the following rule of thumb:


Grade 1.0 = Excellent
Grade 6.0 = Inadequate
The comparison between the working and recovery heart rate is an easy and quick option for checking physical fitness. The fitness grade is a guide value for your ability to recover from physical exertion. Before you work out your fitness grade you should have trained in your working heart rate range for a longer period of time, i.e. at least 10 minutes. You will establish that your "fitness grade" improves with regular cardiovascular training.


Fitness pulse

Calculated value of: 75% of maximum heart rate


A collection of attempts at explanation


Course profile

Performances (exertion levels) or target pulse over time or distance displayed in the training preview.


Performance (Power)

Current value of mechanical (braking) energy in watts that the exercise bike converts into heat.


Display in which values are entered or selected.


Maximum heart rate

Value calculated from 220 minus age.
The value is displayed as a black line in the heart rate bars and as a red line in the training record.



Recording of heart beats per minute


Training options that request manual or programmed performances (exertion levels) or target pulse(s).



Recovery heart rate measurement at the end of training session. The deviation is calculated from the heart rate at the start and end of a minute and a fitness grade is worked out.
The improvement of this grade with the same training is a measure of improved fitness.

9-pin SUB-D connector or USB connection for data exchange with a PC.



The program controls the performance or heart rate to the manually entered or defined values.


Target pulse

Manually or programmed pulse value that should be reached.

Target pulse range

Marking with arrows on the pulse bar and in the training record of -/+ 10 beats from the target pulse. These are used for better compliance with heart rate monitoring.
