How does the multi-sport feature work?

From yoga, volleyball, from rowing to boxing, from skiing and ice hockey, Pulse HR tracks up to 30 activities. You can select your favorite workouts directly on the tracker 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.


Important: It is now possible to pause your workout during a session. To do so, give the button a long press until the « pause mode » is displayed. You can see a summary of your workout or stop it directly.

When stopping your workout, a short summary will be available on your Pulse HR:

  • Duration if the Connected GPS is not activated,
  • Duration, distance and pace if connected GPS is activated.

Note that your tracker should be updated to the latest version (firmware 1011). After the Health Mate app update (version 4.6.0), it may take a few days for your tracker update to be available to you within the app.

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:

  1. Open the Health Mate app.
  2. Go to Devices > Pulse HR.
  3. Tap Workout customization.
  4. Select and arrange up to 5 exercises for quick access when you start a workout on your watch.

In workout mode, Pulse HR 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.


Will Pulse HR still recognize workouts automatically?

Pulse HR 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, Pulse HR will learn its movements and recognize it in the future.

If you forgot to launch a workout before your session, Pulse HR 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.
