How to open the menu
The workout setup system is based on 3 main concepts, REPETITION, DURATION and GOAL, and with these 3 ingredients you can build a great variety of workout sequences, including intervals, repetitions and progressions.
During the workout every action will be recorded as a separated lap, and the workout will be automatically saved at the end of the last action. If you wish to continue a workout after it finishes just add a LAP KEY action with no target as the last action of your training.
There is a limit of 20 actions per exercise and it is possible to keep 3 workouts at once in your device. The site will allow you to configure 25 different workouts and you can easily swap the ones in your device.
The action editor has 3 parts:
This example demonstrates the flexibility of the system. All duration types can be combined with all types of goals and groups of actions can be nested inside repetition blocks.
This example shows a 10 minutes warm up action at HR Zone 3, followed by 7 repetitions of an interval then a 5 minutes cool down at HR Zone 3.
This example shows a progression that starts with a 10 minutes warm up action. The actions 2 to 8 are a progression with 4 increasing duration blocks (2, 3, 4 and 5 minutes) at a fast pace with a 2 minutes rest action in between each one. The action 9 is a 10 minutes cool down.
The screen is divided in two.
The upper half will be automatically generated by the app depending on the duration and goal of the current action.
A data field will display the duration and one will display the goal. If there is no goal defined for the current action, only the duration data field will be shown.
If the current action has a goal, a colored bar dividing the screen will provide visual feedback. In the example below the configured goal is to stay in heart rate zone 3. The red bar will display when out of range (below or above), the orange bar will display when near the lower or upper limit and the green bar when in range.
In addition to the automatically generated data fields at the top of the screen, the app allows to configure up to 3 additional data fields at the bottom of the screen. There are more than 40 data fields available for you to select.
Pick up your favorite color or use then to easily identify your training presets. The background color (black or white) and foreground color of the display (gray, red, orange, green, blue or purple) can be configured.
The zone information table used by the software to calculate the heart rate zone data fields is the one configured in your watch settings.
CadenceYour internal watch sensor will not report cadences lower than 80. Any value lower than that will be shown as zero. The bike cadence sensor does not have this limitation.
PowerPower data fields require and external power meter.
Plan your training ahead, add the activities on the calendar and have the correct workouts downloaded to your device.
After the set up of your training schedule, the app will download the right exercises on your device during the online sync process.
All Genius Wrist apps are integrated into the calendar.
You can track your completed workout details in the activity feed.
Time, duration, calories, heart rate, distance and the list of exercises you performed will be listed.
Genius Wrist system will give your workout a score. The points are based on the perceived effort during the activity. That means the same workout can have different values every time you execute it. The score will be very low if you do not measure your heart rate during the workout sessions.
The activity feed displays the individual result of each workout and stats page will give you a broader view of your gym activities.
The system will track the calories, duration, distance, number of sets, number of activities and the score of your gym workouts, allowing you to follow your monthly progression.
The achievements system will level you up based on the number of points you score in each of your workouts. The scoring system gives points based on perceived effort, not fitness level, that means, the easier the exercise is perceived by you, the fewer points you will score. That way you are stimulated to keep your workouts on a challenging level.
Some achievements will be awarded recurrently. For example the each month you will receive a new Calories badge.
