Based on a preset user profile and heart rate goal, the device measures your heart rate and automatically selects music for efficient training. The app Smart B-Trainer for Running enables you to manage running logs on your smartphone.
Two sets of training plan are available – Basic and Premium. The Basic Plan offers a range of options, enabling you to manually set running goals for the day.
