How are Myzone effort points calculated?

MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs) are a new metric for measuring physical activity. MEPs accumulate for every minute of activity that a user spends in the 5 effort (intensity) zones based on one’s individual maximum heart rate. The more effort that is put in, the more MYZONE Effort points are earned.

How are Myzone MEPs calculated?

MEPs is an acronym for MYZONE Effort Points, and it’s the metric by which everything is measured in the fitness tracking system. MEPs are earned by exercising in your target heart rate zones over a period of time. The more effort you put into each of your workouts, the more MEPs you earn!

How does Myzone fitness tracker work?

What should my max heart rate be Myzone?

A: MYZONE users a formula accredited by the ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) to automatically establish your MAX HR based on your age: MaX HR = 207 – (0.7 x age). This is based on population norms. If you are able to push your maximum HR past this limit, MYZONE will automatically adjust to this new limit.

Is Myzone calorie count accurate?

Myzone does not track calories in the light gray zone, or below 50% of your MHR. The equation is most accurate at intensities above 50% and therefore calories will only be calculated above 50% (grey-red zones). NOTE: Is it important to note that calories measured are an estimate.

What is 75 percent of my max heart rate?

The American Heart Association generally recommends a target heart rate of: Moderate exercise intensity: 50% to about 70% of your maximum heart rate. Vigorous exercise intensity: 70% to about 85% of your maximum heart rate.

Is it good if your max heart rate is high?

Is it Good to Have a High Max Heart Rate? No. Max heart rate in itself is not an indicator of fitness. It does not rise as your fitness improves, nor is it a sign that you are more fit than someone else if you have a higher max HR than they do.

Why is my max heart rate increasing?

Your max heart rate increases as a response of your body as it adapts to the neurological and physiological changes that come from aerobic and high intensity training (like interval training). As your cardiovascular system improves, you’ll be able to perform at a higher intensity for the same fitness level.

How do I lower my max heart rate at Myzone?
