Button until the LED lights up. The colour of this LED is an indicator
of the battery level:

indicated by the pulsing LED light.
3. Hold your arm still until the LED blinks in a distinctively slower

0% of MHR
< 50% of MHR
Warm Up / Recovery
50% of MHR
< 60% of MHR
Fat Burn & Endurance 60% of MHR
< 70% of MHR
70% of MHR
< 80% of MHR
