when I create a Workout my Heart Rate Zones are incorrect. I'm using the Custom Zones and have them set as Active. I created a workout and downloaded it to my MotoActv, but when I started the workout, it did the intervals correctly however the Heart Rate Zones were way too high. i.e., it had my Zone2 starting at 200 which is higher than my max heart rate of 189 so it wasn't effective in telling me when I was in the right zones. However, when I quick start a workout, it uses my correct zones.
I planned a fit test yesterday, and a morning interval run today. I have completed both excercises. Both exercises have been logged in my 'recent workouts' tab. In fact, the portal has used the results of my fit test to set my HR zones.But, when I go to workouts on the MotoActv, I still see both excercises as not completed with a "!" next to them. Is there a way to reset this? Is there a workaround?
Is it possible to start an activity from the device that is saved in your workout library without it being planned? I workout when i can so i don't want to log in and plan the workout everytime i want to do something.I guess i could set all my saved workouts to weekly or something but i just wanted to know if there was just a list of your workout library instead.
I have 4 zones setup in my pace zones: rest, walk, run, sprint.
I am trying to setup walk / run intervals at 2 minutes at my "walk" pace zone and 2 minutes at my "run" pace zone.
In the workout planner I am able to select the appropriate pace zone when setting up my interval workout, but the pace zone that I selected is not saved. I click save and re-enter the workout plan and the zones are defaulted back to my first zone of "rest."
This used to work, so not sure if something changed, but a few days ago I added a bunch of running workouts to the calendar on the Planning tab at Motoactv.com and after syncing the device several times, still no workouts show when I go to Running->Outdoor->Planned. This screen shows "No Planned Workouts Available. Plan your workouts on MOTOACTV.com" These are non-interval workouts that were added.
I have a question about using heart rate zones int he workout summaries. I went to "Set my Heart Rate Zones" and manually entered the five zones that I've been using for a while now, into a Heart Rate Zone Template.Then, when looking at a workout summary, on the left side I clicked the section for Zones-->Heart Rate. It displays five HR zones.. but they're not the HR Zones I entered myself. They're the stock/default zones. Therefore, when I look at the workout summary, when it shows how much of my running was done in each HR zone, the summary is incorrect.In the image below, where the arrow is pointing, how can I get it to show my custom HR Zones from the template I filled out?
I like the running Pace Zone Feature! It worked for me on the day I did a fit test. I ran 6 miles after the fit test and was able to take a glance at my watch and see the zone I was in. Very cool. I went to the website and tweaked my zones and saved a new template.I can't get the pace zones function to work since then. I'm sure it is operator error.
I see people posting workarounds on how to create pace zones (as an example) so settings will stick....I can't figure out how to create them in the first place....where would I input the data? The drop down only has "my zone templates" - and is not selectable. Am I in the wrong place?
For the last few weeks, my workout overview no longer includes my custom zones. Each time I check my settings, the custom HR zones that I programmed are marked as currently active, but all my workouts are showing as the default zones set by Motoactv. These are not the zones that I desire to use in my training.
First, I'm unable to save a zone template. If I edit the Carmichael zones and hit save, it tells me that's it has saved the template. But alas, it's nowhere to be found. Also, after I hit save the zone resets back to the default (which is incorrect as it has the first two zones overlapping significantly). Take a look at the attachment. I'm no heart rate expert by any means, but are "Recovery" and "Foundation" supposed to overlap as much as they do (why are both of their lower number 87?)? Just looking at this now I realize how little sense it makes. Why does the "Foundation" zone go all the way into "Steady State" I tried changing this and it just reverts back to the original everytime. I'm sure you'll guess my next gripe... yep, my zones are incorrect on my MotoACTV as well.
I noticed that after recent update I can not see heartrate zones summary on the portal anymore - the muticolored bar that indicates heartrate zone.
I checked my OLD workouts on the portal and these DO have heartrate zones - which is strange since I would expect data processing to be on the page regardless of data used... here is link to OLD workout -[url]...
After using the coached interval feature a couple of times, I have noticed a problem. Once my other workouts are synced, the table in the heart rate zones tab shows the total number of minutes spent in each individual heart rate zone. This is not happening with the programmed interval workouts. I know my zones are being recorded because of the feedback I get during the workout and the color coded graph portion seems to be accurate. The table on my recent 25 minute interval workout reads 1:55 in Z2, 2:32 in Z3, 0:36 in Z4, and 0:00 in both Z1 and Z5. Clearly these durations do not add up.
Did a running fitness test this evening and it gave me the audio prompt that I'd completed it. Its showing on the portal as having been completed, but its still showing on the watch as planned even after I sync'd.
So I tried the Race Myself feature on my 20 mile bike this am. When I got done, I went through the "End Workout" selected an intensity and hit "Done"--but it did not record the workout--is that what it is supposed to do?? I figured it would at least record today's workout as a new workout.
I have the weather app on my 16G, and while I get weather updates every hour when I am just wearing the device, when I am in workout mode, I do not get the hourly weather updates consistently until I stop the workout. This isn't right is it? I should get the weather updates every hour regardless of mode.
Since there is no thermo on the Motoactv, I like to know the local temp while on long training rides.
I just got the Motoactv. I did my cardiopoint testing at Lifetime and the Motoactv does not sync with the enewleaf program. Some of my workouts have 3 different zone levels in one workout, how do I set that on a workout for the Motoactv?
I attempted to set up a multisport workout (10 minute warm up run, interval repeats, 10 minute cool down) and ran it today. I must have mis-configured the workout because the device did not auto start the interval activity after the warm-up run. So, I just started a new, quick-start workout for my intervals and cool-down.I've been working on a script to convert the csv data to .tcx data (I have several years of fitness data in .tcx already), and was hoping to stitch the workouts together. When I sync'ed to the motoactv site, I couldn't access the botched multi-sport workout. The site displayed an error that read something to the effect of "Workout contains no raw data". I deleted the workout from the site and was hoping to re-upload since the activity is still on my device. But it looks like it won't sync again.
I had no problem with the site until today. After synchronize my last run , I tried to see the details but stop with an error showing: "Unable to process the request". I deleted the cache an all the cookies but without success.
I created a biking workout that had 3 stages. Stages 1 and 3 in zone 1 and stage 2 in zone 2. When I used it, the Heart rate zones that were displayed on the watch had nothing to do with my HR zones that I had entered in the website. HR zone for stage 1 was 170-190! HR zone for stage 2 was 115-126. Neither of these correspond to my zones
