Workout Builder

Workout Builder is designed to help you perform structured running and cycling workouts.
The app guides you through the exercise, and the duration of each action can be defined in terms of distance traveled, elapsed time, calories spent or the number of steps taken.
If an action has a goal like a pace, speed, cadence or heart rate range, the watch will alert you during the workout to stay within the specified zone.
With these ingredients, it is possible to build a great variety of workouts, including intervals, repetitions, progressions, and tempo runs.

Workout Actions

The workout setup system is based on 3 main concepts, REPETITION, DURATION and GOAL, and with these 3 ingredients you can build a great variety of workout sequences, including intervals, repetitions and progressions.

There is a limit of 20 actions per exercise and it is possible to keep 3 workouts at once in your device. The site will allow you to configure 25 different workouts and you can easily swap the ones in your device.

  • repeatRepetition: A repetition can contain one or more actions inside of it. It defines a group of actions to be repeated a given number of times. A workout can contain various repetition blocks and a repetition block can contain many actions
  • Action: The action has 2 attributes, duration and goal.
    • Duration: It is the size of the action, it defines how long the action will last, and the following kinds of duration are supported:

    Workout Builder action goals


Examples

All actions and goals combined in one workout

This example demonstrates the flexibility of the system. All duration types can be combined with all types of goals and groups of actions can be nested inside repetition blocks.

All Actions

Interval

This example shows a 10 minutes warm up action at HR Zone 3, followed by 7 repetitions of an interval then a 5 minutes cool down at HR Zone 3.

Simple Interval

Progression

This example shows a progression that starts with a 10 minutes warm up action. The actions 2 to 8 are a progression with 4 increasing duration blocks (2, 3, 4 and 5 minutes) at a fast pace with a 2 minutes rest action in between each one. The action 9 is a 10 minutes cool down.

Progression

Display

The screen is divided in two. The upper half will be automatically generated by the app depending on the duration and goal of the current action. A data field will display the duration and one will display the goal. If there is no goal defined for the current action, only the duration data field will be shown.

Examples of actions and generated data fields:

  • Run for 1 mile at heart rate zone 4: Lap distance and heart rate zone data fields.
  • Cycle for 1 minute at 100 rpm: Lap timer and cadence data fields.
  • Walk for 500 steps: Lap steps data fields.
  • Expend 200 Calories and keep at pace range 5:00 to 6:00: Lap calories and current pace data fields.

Indicator bar

If the current action has a goal, a colored bar dividing the screen will provide visual feedback. In the example below the configured goal is to stay in heart rate zone 3. The red bar will display when out of range (below or above), the orange bar will display when near the lower or upper limit and the green bar when in range.

Additional data fields

In addition to the automatically generated data fields at the top of the screen, the app allows to configure up to 3 additional data fields at the bottom of the screen. There are more than 40 data fields available for you to select.

Colors

Pick up your favorite color or use then to easily identify your training presets. The background color (black or white) and foreground color of the display (gray, red, orange, green, blue or purple) can be configured.

Training Calendar

Plan your training ahead, add the activities on the calendar and have the correct workouts downloaded to your device. After the set up of your training schedule, the app will download the right exercises on your device during the online sync process.
All Genius Wrist's apps are integrated into the calendar.


Training Calendar

Activity Feed

You can track your completed workout details in the activity feed.

Time, duration, calories, heart rate, distance and the list of exercises you performed will be listed.

Genius Wrist's system will give your workout a score. The points are based on the perceived effort during the activity. That means the same workout can have different values every time you execute it. The score will be very low if you do not measure your heart rate during the workout sessions.

Activity Feed

Statistics

The activity feed displays the individual result of each workout and stats page will give you a broader view of your gym activities.

The system will track the calories, duration, distance, number of sets, number of activities and the score of your workouts, allowing you to follow your monthly progression.

Achievements

The achievements system will level you up based on the number of points you score in each of your workouts. The scoring system gives points based on perceived effort, not fitness level, that means, the easier the exercise is perceived by you, the fewer points you will score. That way you are stimulated to keep your workouts on a challenging level.

Gym Genius Level Up Badge Level Up Badge

Some achievements will be awarded recurrently. For example the each month you will receive a new Calories badge.
