SUUNTO’S COLOUR-CODED FITNESS SYSTEM
Suunto’s heart rate monitoring system is said to lead to more effective results and
higher overall satisfaction for members. The new Suunto Fitness Solution system
is designed for use in group exercise and cardio training environments. It shows
up to 72 participants’ heart rates simultaneously in real-time in the class, either
through a PC in front of the instructor or projected on the wall. The colour-coded
training zones – light blue for low heart rates, green for medium and red for high –
inform the instructor on individuals’ fi tness levels. The instructor is then able to guide
members and adjust the session accordingly. At the end of each class, the system
automatically generates members’ personal performance reports with summary data.
