The New Balance HRT Step is a wristwatch heart rate monitor that also functions as a pedometer. It can calculate what percentage of your maximum heart rate you are working at and can be programmed to help you reach a predetermined target heart rate goal. The watch functions of the HRT Step can be used to time your workout. You can also monitor the total distance you have walked or run.

The watch functions of the HRT Step can be used to time your workout. You can also monitor the total distance you have walked or run.

Stand with your back to a stationary object, such as a wall or tree, and walk 10 steps. Measure this distance and divide by 10. The figure you receive is your average stride length.

Select the heart rate zone mode and hold the “Mode” button until the display flashes. Set the upper and lower limits of your target heart rate zone by pressing the “Start/Stop” and “Reset” buttons. When finished, press “Mode” to move on to the next setting. Set your age, gender, unit format, weight, height and average stride length following the same procedure. Hold the “Mode” button for three seconds when finished to save all of your settings.

Select the pedometer mode and then hold the “Mode” button until the screen flashes. Choose “Hi” or “Lo” sensitivity with the “Start/Stop” button and then hold the “Mode” button to save the setting. The New Balance HRT is now ready to record all aspects of your workout.

Tips

Batteries in the New Balance HRT should be replaced annually. Low batteries can cause the readings of the device to become inaccurate.
