Educating Your Stride Sensor
About the stride sensor
This device contains a stride sensor that uses a stride algorithm to learn your pace from your actual speed and your
body's vibration frequency. This allows the device to calculate distance and laps with high precision, as well as measure
your pitch and stride even when GPS signal is lost such as in a tunnel, and so on (SF-710/SF-510 only).
Educating the stride sensor
When using the device for the first time, run under the following conditions so that the stride sensor can learn your
Run or walk in the following locations that allow GPS positioning.
❏ When outside with no obstructions overhead: Approximately 10 mins.
❏ When surrounded by tall buildings: approximately 30 mins.
Measure using the chronograph function.
"Measuring Time, Distance, and Speed (Chronograph Function)" on page 38
❏ You need not make these preparations from the second time. However, note if the device is reset so you have to go
through the device set up again you will need to repeat this process.
❏ When you mainly use the device for walking, from the Measure set. menu, set Activity Type to Walk.
"Measure set." on page 106
❏ The device's stride sensor is used for running and walking.
❏ Usage, for example educates the stride sensor according to your primary usage for example if you plan to use the device
to measure running, run at your usual pace to educate the sensor. Errors may occur if your stride pattern is significantly
different to the learning session.
