Start using the A5 with the built-in self walk test, which measures aerobic/cardiovascular fitness with a brisk 1.24-mile (2-kilometer) walk on a hard, even surface. The result of the test, the WalkIndex, predicts a person's maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). The OwnCal feature shows your energy expenditure during one exercise session as well as your accumulated kilocalories during several exercise sessions. It also allows you to set daily and weekly exercise goals in terms of calorie expenditure.
The A5's visible and audible Zone Pointer feature on the monitor's display shows your target heart rate zone and where your current heart rate is within that zone. The Fitness Bullets feature shows a bullet on the monitor's display for every 10 minutes spent exercising/training in your target heart rate zone. The Time in Target Zone feature calculates the amount of total exercise time spent in your personal target zone. You can use this feature together with the Total Exercise Time to determine the effectiveness of your exercise program.
