When using the tracker you may have seen there are some different icons available on the screen. This article explains what these additional functions are and how to use them.

Tracker functions 

The tracker comes with several functions. Due to the structure of the programme, common activity tracker functions such as heart rate monitoring, are disabled.

The green light that occasionally flashes on the back of the tracker is the tracker trying to detect heart rate. Due to the structure of the programme, the heart rate monitoring feature has been disabled. The icon may appear occasionally, usually when the tracker has been recently synced. 

To access the tracker menu hold down the circular button on the display. Tap the circular button to move through the menu icons. To select an icon, hold the circular button down while the icon is selected/enlarged. Once selected, briefly tap the circular button again to turn that option on or off, and leave the preferred setting on the display. Once the display goes black, the tracker has accepted this new setting.

On the home screen of the tracker you have the time and date, along with a small battery icon indicating the battery level and a blue chain icon indicating the tracker is paring/syncing to your Second Nature app.

The next image displays shoes and a number, this is your step tracking function, which indicates your running daily step count. This can be accessed by tapping on the home screen.
