​1.3 Heart rate measurement
Kiprun 550

Measurement on the wrist:

The KIPRUN GPS 550 has an optical sensor to measure the heart rate on the wrist.

4

To ensure your heart rate is measured accurately:

-  Wear the watch with the dial on the top of your wrist

-  The watch should be positioned behind the bone, in contact with your skin

-  Adjust the strap so that it is tight but does not bother you

-  The watch should not turn or move on your wrist

The measurement of the wrist heart rate is optimal when practising sports with repetitive movements such as running or walking. It is advisable to use a heart rate monitoring belt for sports such as fitness, bodybuilding, etc.

Measuring with a belt:

a. Moisten the belt electrodes to optimise the heart rate signal reception

b. Undo the belt using the clip on the side of the belt

c. Position the belt on your chest and do it up again

d. Tighten the belt correctly, making sure the electrodes are tight against your chest

​1.4 Changing the strap
Kiprun 550

Your watch strap can be removed without the use of any tools by simply pulling the catch on the pin of the strap.
To put the strap back on, insert the pin into the hole in the watch, pull the catch then place the strap between the two horns of the watch. Release the catch and gently wiggle the strap to make sure the catch is securely in place.

​1.5 Charging your watch
Kiprun 500
