Work / Rest Timer
The Work / Rest Timer is an interval timer that can be used with any workout profile to help break workouts into periods of active “work” and “rest”. Since continuous muscle use leads to quicker fatigue, splitting up a workout into work and rest intervals allows athletes to conserve resources and/or change muscle groups. In addition to the options available on the RIVAL itself, the Work / Rest Timer has additional settings available on the ELEMNT Companion App's Settings tab as detailed below.
Using the ELEMNT Companion App:
With your ELEMNT RIVAL actively paired, you can find the new Work / Rest Timer in the WORKOUT FEATURES section of the Settings tab of the ELEMNT Companion app, as shown here.
In the Work / Rest Timer section, users have access to the following options:
Once satisfied with your settings choices, you can use the feature from the ELEMNT Companion app by selecting the Workout tab and choosing your desired workout profile to find new options which appear on the page for the Work / Rest Timer.
Toggle the feature on to enable the Work / Rest Timer and customize your settings below. You can specify work and rest interval times as well as how many times you would like the timer to repeat.
NOTE: The longest available work or rest interval is 60 minutes while the shortest interval is 5 seconds. The interval can be repeated from 1-50 times or can be set to continue repeating indefinitely as long as the workout remains active.
Using the ELEMNT RIVAL:
To setup the Work / Rest Timer on ELEMNT RIVAL, select the workout profile of your choice and hold the bottom left button to open the menu and find the new Work / Rest Timer option.
Using this new menu will allow you to turn the timeron/off and is also where you can set the work /rest timer ratio and number of repeats.
When the timer is active for your workout, a new workout page will appear, as shown below.
A few things to highlight:
- This page shows the amount of time left in the active Work or Rest interval
- The second data field on this page can be customized in the ELEMNT Companion App where you normally edit workout pages on the Settings tab
- While the Work / Rest Timer is active, the lap button is used to advance the interval from Work to Rest or vice versa. Manual lapping is not available. However, in the ELEMNT Companion App's Settings tab you may still select if you would like work/rest intervals to automatically create laps for the chosen intervals.
