How to perform Polar Fitness Test
You can take the test anywhere. Make sure that your surroundings are peaceful. It is important to always perform the test in similar conditions and at the same time of day. If the fitness test fails, your earlier OwnIndex value is used. The OwnIndex value affects the accuracy of the Polar STAR Training Program (in FT60 and FT80) and calorie calculation during training.
- In FT80/FT60, go to Menu → Applications → Fitness test → Start test.
- In FT40, go to Menu → Fitness test → Start test.
The fitness test begins as soon as your training computer has located your heart rate. Lie relaxed, avoid body movements during the test (do not raise your arms or legs). Keep your arms on either side of your body. Avoid talking.
- Yes to save the OwnIndex value in user information.
- No if you don't want to update user information.
The OwnIndex value is saved in the OwnIndex results of FT60 and FT80.
If the fitness test fails, your earlier OwnIndex value is used.
