To prevent moisture from entering the console, the entire upper surface of the console, including the buttons, is overmolded in a thin rubber membrane. This surface can be easily cleaned with a soft, damp, nonabrasive cloth.
The console has a backlit LCD display, which features fixed data fields displaying ride data and an active dot matrix banner. During a ride, the message banner displays useful text messages relating to the other ride data. The message banner also functions as a menu in the SETTINGS mode.
The console is compatible with many popular heart rate sensors that utilize either ANT+™ or Bluetooth® Smart wireless technology. The console will link to the strongest heart rate sensor signal in a range of approximately 2 to 3 meters.
Note: A heart rate sensor is not included with the console.
The console has a USB port that can be used with commercially-available USB drives. The ride data for each stage and the total results can be saved to a USB drive in both .csv and .fit file format, which will allow users to track and analyze their ride data. These file formats can also be uploaded to many training websites.
