MZ-3 Overview

02_Belt_MZ3

Unlike activity trackers that only count steps and estimate calories burned, the MYZONE MZ-3 belt monitors your heart rate to determine effort exerted during exercise.

The technology guarantees accurate and personalized results that will help you make the most of your workouts. MYZONE features a unique point system that levels the playing field to keep exercise competitive. With MYZONE–no matter your capabilities–you get rewarded for effort, not fitness.

Watch this video to see the MZ-3 in action.

Pairing Your Belt

Once you’ve registered your MZ-3 belt it’s time to start pairing your belt and getting synced up with the free MYZONE App!

  1. Turn on Bluetooth on your mobile device
  2. Open up the MYZONE App
  3. Go to the Effort Stream screen
  4. Properly put on your MZ-3 belt
  5. Once connected, you should see your belt ID number on the top of the screen in the green box and your tile should now be active and recording your workout!

Note: The MZ-3 should only be paired with one app at a time.

Wearing Your Belt

Wearing your belt is easy and comfortable. Position the belt so that the center piece is directly below your chest, on top of your sternum.

To maintain a consistent and stable connection, your MYZONE belt should be secured firmly around your body. When you hear one beep, your heartbeat has been detected. Now make sure to sync with the app and then you’re ready to go!

Live Tile Overview

Understanding your Live Tile is the key to a successful, productive workout with MYZONE! Check out the diagram below to become familiar with all the data that your tile offers you.

The percentage shown on your tile is a % of your effort or maximum heart rate (MHR).

The equation for estimating your max heart rate is 206-0.7 x your age. This is an estimate but for some users, actual MHR may be higher or lower.

Note: If you achieve a higher MHR when wearing the belt, your MHR and zones will be automatically adjusted.

Club Upload

Uploading your data in a partner facility is easy! Most of the time you probably don’t even notice when it happens. However, if you’re having trouble during a club upload, try these steps:

Step 1: Stand within 10 feet of a MYZONE receiver while wearing your belt.

Step 2: When your name and the current time appear on the feed at the foot of the display screen, your upload is complete and your belt is empty. Your workout data will now be viewable through your online MYZONE account.

 

ClubUpload

 

In the Club

When inside a partner club, your belt information will be streamed to displays in the form of a color-coded, easy-to-read tile.

Your belt data will not be detected through walls; it requires line of sight and no obstruction, so make sure you are in direct range of the receiver. (Wearing it under a shirt is fine.)

If you block the signal (by facing backwards away from the facility receiver, lying down in a plank position, or go out of range) the signal may be compromised and in that case the data will store to memory on the belt. Your data will then upload when the signal is restored.

Web-GettingStartedGuide-LiveTile4-InTheClub

Q: How can I replace the battery in my MZ-3?
The MZ-3 is rechargeable so there is no need to replace the battery.

Understanding Heart Rate Training

Q: What is Max Heart Rate?
Maximum heart rate is the highest heart rate an individual can safely achieve through exercise stress.

Q: How does MYZONE calculate my MAX heart rate?
MYZONE uses a formula derived by Londeree and Moeschberger (University of Missouri) to automatically establish you age predictive MAX HR:

Max HR = 206.3 – (0.711 x age)

This is based on population norms. If you are able to push your maximum HR past this limit your MYZONE profile will automatically adjust to this new limit. You can also ask your coach/trainer/teacher to adjust your maximum heart rate if it does not Appear to be accurate or if you have completed a maximum heart rate test.

Q: Will my MAX heart rate change over time?
Your maximum heart rate will reduce as you get older. It will not change aside from this although your ability to maintain a higher heart rate will increase with training.

Q: What is resting heart rate and will my resting heart rate change over time?
Resting heart rate is the number of times your heart beats per minute at rest. It is best to measure this first thing in the morning. As you become fitter, your resting heart rate will reduce as your heart becomes more efficient. Resting heart rate is not used in the calculation of MEPs for any information on your tile. It is only for informational purposes.

Q: How does MYZONE establish my resting heart rate?
MYZONE sets your resting heart rate to 100bpm (beats per minute) as standard. When you first register your belt it is recommended that you perform a resting heart rate test. This involves sitting or lying comfortably while wearing your belt for 10 minutes, ideally in the morning. When you next upload your data at the MYZONE Console your resting heart rate will recalculate to your actual resting value. You can also ask your coach/trainer/teacher to adjust your resting heart rate if it does not Appear to be accurate or if you have completed a resting heart rate test.

Q: How does MYZONE calculate the 5 intensity Zones?
MYZONE uses five color-coded Heart Rate Zones to establish the effort that users exert based on their maximum heart rate (Max HR). The effort is expressed as a percentage of the user’s Max HR.
The five Heart Rate Zones are:
• Grey = 50% to 59% of Max HR
• Blue = 60% to 69% of Max HR
• Green = 70% to 79% of Max HR
• Yellow = 80% to 89% of Max HR
• Red = 90% to 100% of Max HR

Q: What are MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs)?
MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs) are earned based on the effort exerted by the user. Time spent in each Heart Rate Zone earns different numbers of MEPs:

• Grey = 1 MEPs per minute
• Blue = 2 MEPs per minute
• Green = 3 MEPs per minute
• Yellow = 4 MEPs per minute
• Red = 4 MEPs per minute

The red zone does not exceed 4 MEPs per minute because MYZONE does not want to encourage over training, which can be harmful.

Q: How does MYZONE calculate caloric expenditure?
MYZONE calculates the number of calories burnt by taking into account a number of personal details including your gender, age, weight and every heart beat.

Q: Is it important for me to update my body metrics regularly?
Yes. As calories burnt are calculated based on your weight, it is important that you regularly update your weight. You can do this either manually in your Outcomes Page or by using Approved compatible MYZONE scales. For more information on using MYZONE compatible scales, see the “more info tab” within your account under health report.

Q: What’s the best way to determine if my fitness has improved using heart rate?
By measuring your resting heart rate over a period of time or by repeating an identical exercise session and comparing your average heart rate in your MYZONE Activity report. When your resting or average heart rate goes down, your heart is becoming more efficient and therefore you are increasing your level of fitness.

Q: What affects my heart rate response day to day?
Many factors affect your resting and heart rate during exercise including the amount of sleep you have had, stress, nutrition, hydration, heavy training, fatigue, adrenaline, competition, and mental focus.

Q: Why is it so important to monitor heart rate and how much effort I am putting in?
Knowing what intensity you are working at is essential to ensure you get the most from your exercise sessions and get the results you want. It also assists you to train safely and effectively when not under the guidance of a trainer or coach.
