What does AHR stand for?

Adaptive Heart Rate Zone Mode

What is AHR mode?

Adaptive Heart Rate Zone Mode is designed to give athletes heart rate zone training. The adaptive aspect of this mode allows an athlete to go through multiple heart rate zones while maintaining cognitive stress on their brain. If an athlete goes outside the target heart rate zone the task will be paused for 10 seconds to allow them to get back into the target Heart Rate Zone (HRZ).

When to use Adaptive Heart Rate Zone mode

When you want to increase physical workload during an athlete's cognitive training.

What are Heart Rate Zones?

We all have a personal resting heart rate, ‘a minimum heart rate’, and a maximum heart rate. And between these values are different HR zones that correspond to training intensity and training benefit.

There are different ways to identify your heart rate zones calculation. One simple way is to define them as percentages of your maximum heart rate.

What are the 5 Heart Rate Zones?

There are five different heart rate zones (1–5)

  • HRZ1 50-60%

  • HRZ2 60-70%

  • HRZ3 70-80%

  • HRZ4 80-90%

  • HRZ5 90-100%
