The easiest way to determine your heart rate limits on your Polar product is to use the OwnZone feature. OwnZone automatically detects the best limits for you in the beginning of each exercise session. For more information on how to use OwnZone, please see your product user manual.
Here are a few examples of when you should set the heart rate limits manually rather than use the OwnZone:
- You're in a medically supervised cardiac rehabilitation program and have had your heart rate limits prescribed to you by a doctor or physical therapist.
- You're participating in a guided exercise program under the supervision of a personal trainer or coach and have had your heart rate limits determined.
