How does the multi-sport feature work?
From yoga, volleyball, and rowing to boxing, skiing and ice hockey, the Steel HR / Steel HR Sport tracks up to 30 activities. You can select your favorite workouts directly on the watch screen with a long push of the button. Press the button to navigate through the activities, and then give the button a long press when you find your activity and are ready to start your workout.
The workouts that appear on the screen can be chosen from a long list of activities in your Health Mate app settings. To change them, perform the following steps:
- Open the Health Mate app.
- Go to Devices > Steel HR or Steel HR Sport.
- Tap More settings > Workout screen customization.
- Select and arrange up to 6 exercises for quick access when you start a workout on your watch.
In workout mode, the Steel HR / Steel HR Sport tracks your continuous heart rate, as well as the workout duration. After the workout, you will see a workout overview in the Health Mate app showing the workout intensity and the time spent in heart rate zones, as well as your burned calories.
Note that we are slowly rolling out the multi-sport feature and connected GPS to all Steel HR watches.
Will the watch still recognize workouts automatically?
The Steel HR / Steel HR Sport will track walking, running, and swimming automatically. To receive more workout details like pace and route covered, we recommend manually starting the workout mode.
Once you have selected a workout a few times, Steel HR / Steel HR Sport will learn its movements and recognize it in the future.
If you forgot to launch a workout before your session, the Steel HR / Steel HR Sport will detect your movements and add an unknown workout to the Health Mate app. You can then change the type of workout in the app manually.
