How to Calibrate S1 Foot Pod with FT60/FT80 Training Computer

To get the most accurate speed and distance measuring results we recommend that the S1 foot pod is calibrated according to these instructions.



Before calibrating, enable S1 foot pod
1. Select Settings → Training settings → Speed sensor → Footpod
2. Press OK button to confirm. Footpod in use! is displayed for a moment.
3. Press and hold BACK button to return to Time view.

To calibrate by running
1. Start your training session normally:
- Press OK button to enter training view.
- Wait until your heart rate signal is displayed and S1 foot pod is detected.




- Press OK button to start recording the training session.

2. Start running. The minimum recommended calibrating distance is 1 km.
The longer the distance covered during calibration the better the calibration.
It is important to calibrate the foot pod for each terrain type you run on.
For best result, use an accurate calibration distance. For Example, do the calibration run on a running track.

3. Stand still after you have run the calibration distance.
Either:
a) - Press BACK button to pause the training session
- Press UP button to select Calibrate footpod view.


Or:
b) - Press and hold the LIGHT button to enter Quick Menu view
- Press UP button to select Calibrate footpod view


4. Press OK button.
- Press UP or DOWN button to fix the displayed distance with the actual distance you just run.


- Press OK button to confirm. Calibration factor set! is displayed for a moment.

5. The S1 foot pod is now calibrated.


To calibrate manually
Calibration factor can be calculated using the formula below:

Actual distance
Displayed distance

Example
If you run 1200m and the running computer shows a distance of 1180m, adjust the calibration factor to 1200/1180 = 1.017.

1. Once you know the calibration factor there are two options to set it to FT60/FT80:
a) In the Settings menu
- Select Settings Training settings Footpod calib.factor and press OK button.


Or
b) In Training menu
- Press OK button to enter the Training view
- Select Training settings Footpod calib.factor and press OK button.


2. Press UP or DOWN button to set the Calibration factor.
- Press UP or DOWN button to fix the displayed distance with the actual distance you just ran.

- Press OK button to confirm. Calibration factor set! is displayed for a moment.

3. The S1 foot pod is now calibrated.
