Walking/Jogging at Your Own PaceFree Workout Mode

In the Free Workout mode, the BF-1 automatically matches the music to your exercise pace, selecting songs that have almost the same tempo as your jogging or walking speed. When you change pace, the music changes with you. This lets you jog freely and set your own paceand enjoy music that perfectly ts your pace.

If you want to constrain the length of your exercise session, you can use the Goal Setting parameters to automatically stop music playback once youve reached the desired target. You can set the target to be a specic time, a specic distance, or the amount of calories you wish to burn off. (Only one of the targets can be set and be in effect for a session.)

To call up the Free Workout mode: Select Free Workout from the Top Menu.

Exercising with Free Workout The Free Workout mode is an easy, convenient way to exercise using the versatile tempo changing features of the BF-1, since it automatically matches the music to your exercise pace.

n

Keep in mind that it takes a few seconds to detect your pace and call up a song that matches your pace.

h

If you nd that few songs matching your pace are called up, adjust the sensitivity of the step sensor (page 67).

1 From the Free Workout menu, select Start, then start jogging or walking. You can set the goal setting (targets for your exercise) and/or select a specic music playlist for the session. If you want to do so, select Setting here and go to page 27 (Goal Setting and Music Selection). Once you set the goal setting, it will be shown in the Start menu the next time you use the device, enabling you to continue with the same exercise settings as before.

IMPORTANT If the pulse sensor is not attached properly or accidentally slips off, a Measurement Error! message appears. Reattach the pulse sensor properly and select Try again in the menu to continue your exercise session. If you select Dont measure HR here, the exercise session continues, but heart rate is not memorized in the exercise log (page 29).

n

For playback of certain songs (and depending, of course, on the characteristics of those songs), you may nd that the song tempo does not match your pace. If this is the case, you can manually correct the tempo information with the BODiBEAT Station software. For details, refer to the BODiBEAT Station Owners Manual.

2 While youre jogging or walking, you can change the volume of the music, select different songs, or lock the pace. See Operation During Exercise on page 42.

3 Once the set target has been reached, music playback stops and your session is ended. A log showing detailed information on your session automatically appears. (For more about the session log, see After a Free Workout session below.) If your exercise is an open-ended session or you want to stop the exercise before the specied target has been reached, you can also stop the session manually by simultaneously holding both the / (Up/Down) buttons. This ends the session and calls up the log display.

n

When the Learning Function (page 74) is set to on, a conrmation message will appear before the log display appears and prompts you to update the maximum heart rate and tempo.

The Fitness modes provide the most appropriate music playback for optimal aerobic exercise. In that sense, they are similar to the Free Workout mode. However, they go much further, monitoring your heart rate and providing sophisticated ways of changing the music to give you a perfectly programmed, optimal aerobic workoutthat matches your physical condition and the intensity of your exercise.

The built-in pulse sensor detects your heart rate as you exercise. Continuously and in real time, the BF-1 calculates the optimal exercise pace for you, given your physical conditionand then automatically changes the music to match your pace and heart rate. If your exercise is too strenuous and your heart rate is too high (higher than optimal), the BF-1 plays slower tempo music. Likewise, if your exercise is too easy and relaxed to provide adequate exercise benets, the BF-1 plays faster music. This ensures that you get the best possible exercisenot too little, and not too much.

Each Fitness mode also features automatically programmed warming up and cooling down segments that effectively structure your exercise sessions and help you avoid unnatural stress and fatigue.

Since the Fitness modes monitor your heart rate, you will need to properly attach the pulse sensor. (For instructions, see page 20.) You will also need to make sure other settings have been made, such as your actual age and resting heart rate (page 71).

There are two Fitness modes: Walk Fitness and Jog Fitness. Essentially, they function and operate exactly the same, except that Walk Fitness is specically programmed for walking, while Jog Fitness is designed for the more strenuous and intense exercise you get while jogging. (However, slow tempo songs matched for walking may sometimes be played if your heart rate goes higher than optimal condition.)

To call up the Walk Fitness or Jog Fitness mode: Select Walk Fitness or Jog Fitness from the Top Menu.

Exercising with the Fitness modes The Fitness modes monitor your heart rate and take into account your maximum heart rate and resting heart rate to automatically program an optimal workout for you, changing the music to t your condition and the intensity of the exercise. Before exercising, make sure that youve properly entered your birthday and resting heart rate (page 71).

1 From the Top Menu, select the mode depending on the type of exercise youll be doing: Walk Fitness (walking) or Jog Fitness (jogging).

2 Make sure the pulse sensor is properly attached (page 20). When it is properly attached, the LED will start ashing in time with your heart rate.

3 From the Walk Fitness or Jog Fitness menu, select Start, then start your exercise with the tempo of the song that plays. You can set the goal setting (targets for your exercise) and/or select a specic music playlist for the session. If you want to do so, select Setting here and go to page 27 (Goal Setting and Music Selection). Once you set the goal setting, it will be shown in the Start menu the next time you use the device, enabling you to continue with the same exercise settings as before.

WARNING In the Fitness modes, the device monitors your heart rate and provides a song at the optimum tempo. However, if you nd it too strenuous to match your pace to the song, do not force yourself to keep pace. Lower the pace accordingly (page 44) or stop the exercise.

n

If the pulse sensor is not attached properly or accidentally slips off, a Measurement Error! message appears. Reattach the pulse sensor properly and continue your exercise session.

n

When starting the exercise, a Warming Up segment of two minutes (for Walk Fitness) or three minutes (Jog Fitness) is inserted. You can change the pace during Warming Up manually if it seems too slow or too fast (page 44).

n

For audio song playback, the song tempo which is analyzed by the BODiBEAT Station software may differ from the actual tempo depending on the song characteristics. In this case, you can manually correct the tempo information with the BODiBEAT Station. For details, refer to the BODiBEAT Station Owners Manual.

What is Effective Aerobic Exercise? Aerobic exercise, such as walking and jogging, builds up your cardiopulmonary functions and increases your stamina. Since stamina is a good measure of physical age, regular and continuous aerobic exercise can make your body more youthful.

Aerobic exercise is also very effective for losing weight. Oxygen brought into body breaks down and burns off fat. Moreover, as your exercising builds muscle mass and increases basal metabolism, your whole body and constitution loses more and more fat. To achieve the maximum benets of aerobic exercise, you should avoid merely jogging in any haphazard fashion, but be careful to set appropriate exercise intensity levels (i.e., the pace for walking/jogging) and exercise lengths.

Exercise intensity and heart rate As you exercise, your heart rate rises. Since intense exercise increases your heart rate more signicantly than light exercise, heart rate is a reliable indicator for exercise intensity. To achieve the desired effect of your exercise, it is important that you determine the target heart rate in advance and try to bring your heart rate up to this target during exercise.

How can you determine the proper target heart rate? There are various methods for calculating heart rate, but the BF-1 adopts a method using %HRR (percentage of heart rate reserve). The %HRR gure assumes your resting heart rate as 0% and your maximum heart rate (heart rate during your most intense exercise) as 100%. For walking, a %HRR gure of 55 75% is optimal for aerobic exercise. For jogging, 65 75% is optimal. For the specic formula used to calculate your optimum target heart rate, see page 38.

n

The BF-1 calculates your heart rate according to the blood ow at your ear lobe detected by the included pulse sensor.

Using the Fitness modes, you can maintain the optimal heart rate during exercise without the need to be continually conscious of your heart rate, simply by entering your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate gures in advance. When your heart rate dips below the optimal level, faster songs are played to naturally prompt you to increase your pace; likewise, when your heart rate exceeds the optimal level, slower songs are played to prompt you to decrease your pace. Thanks to this feature, you simply match your walking/jogging pace to the tempo of the music, and your optimal heart rate is maintained (refer to the graph below). You can also easily check whether your heart rate is optimal or not from the LED. When it is optimal (%HRR is 55 75%), it ashes in green. When lower than optimal, it ashes in blue. When higher than optimal, it ashes in red.

Exercise length For best results, one exercise session should be at least fteen minutes. Twenty minutes or more is recommended, because as long as you exercise, the proportion of fat-burning increases and remains high. When you are walking, more time is required for this than when joggingroughly 30 40 minutes because your heart rate increases more slowly than when jogging.

Warming up and cooling down Warming up and cooling down is necessary not only for effective exercise but also for protection from injury and proper recovery from fatigue. Generally, bending and stretching, as well as minimum-stress exercises are good for warming up and cooling down. The Fitness modes of the BF-1 actually include warming up and cooling down segments to guide you naturally into lighter exercising. At the beginning of the exercise and at the end of the exercise, slower songs are automatically played back. Simply match your pace to the music playing, and you can warm up and cool down appropriately.

For safe exercise Pay careful attention to the environment around you to avoid accidents. Exercise in locations of light or minimal trafc, such as a park or a jogging path. Exercise in broad daylight if possible. Exercising at dusk or after the sun goes

downor worse yet, at nightyou may not be able to properly see dangerous obstacles, and other people or drivers may not be able to see you.

When jogging, pay more attention to your environment than when walking. The faster you are moving, the greater the danger.

Preset Training programs are also available for certain exercise situations or goals. You can use these as a starting point. (You may want to inspect these programs within the included software, to more easily view the contents and the targets over the programmed exercise).

Each program in the Training mode contains several segments, each lasting for a specic amount of time or for a specic distance. Each segment also has a different target. This can be a certain intensity of exercise (as measured by heart rate reserve), a specic music tempo, a specic heart rate, or a specic pace (as measured by minutes: seconds per mile). Simply put, a Training program divides an exercise session into multiple parts, each programmed exactly to suit your exercise needs or t a specic athletic training application.

You can create your own Training programs, and the included software gives you the tools to most easily and intuitively do this. Creating your own custom Training programs gives you enormous exibility and control over your exercise sessions. When used correctly, its almost like having a professional athletic coach by your side, telling you not only when to speed up and when to slow down, but exactly how much you should speed up or slow downall the while playing your favorite music to keep you on program.

To call up the Training mode: Select Training from the Top Menu.

Exercising with preset programs The BF-1 comes with specially programmed preset Training programs built into the unit. These are designed for a variety of specic exercise situations or goals.

h

The BF-1 also lets you create your own Training programs (see page 37), and you can use the preset programs here as starting points or templates in making your own (see page 39).

About heart rate reserve

Heart rate reserve (HRR) is a term used to describe the difference between a persons resting heart rate (HRrest) and maximum heart rate (HRmax). The formula is:

HRR = HRmax HRrest

The BF-1 actually measures and calculates the percentage of heart rate reserve (%HRR) and uses this as a measurement of exercise intensity. By using %HRR as the exercise intensity, the optimal heart rate (HR) in exercising is calculated. The formula is:

HR = HRR x %HRR + HRrest

For example, if your HRmax is 180 bpm, HRrest is 60 bpm and target %HRR is 70%, the HR is calculated as:

HR = (180 60) x 0.7 + 60 = 144

After the Interval and Target setting is nished, the following display appears.

3 Set the desired values for Interval and Target, and then simultaneously press the / (Up/Down) buttons to actually enter them for the segment. The segment is entered and operation returns to the previous display.

4 Select Add Segment to enter the next segment.

5 Repeat steps 3 and 4 above as needed to create all the desired segments for your program.

6 After youve created all the segments for the program, select OK in the display. The Select Music display appears (when some Playlists exist).

Operation During Exercise

At any time during your exercise session (in Free Workout, Fitness Walk, Fitness Jog or Training modes), you can change various settings.

Pausing the exercise This function lets you temporarily pause the operation of the BF-1 (for example, if you need to briey stop your exercise session). Music playback is stopped and your heart rate and steps are not monitored while pause is active.

Press (but do not hold) the / (Up/Down) buttons simultaneously. This pauses the music and exercise session. Press them again to restart the music and exercise.

Changing music playback volume

Use the / (Up/Down) buttons to call up the Volume display and change the volume while the music is playing.

After two seconds, the Volume display automatically closes and returns to the previous display. You can also close the Volume display manually (before the two seconds are up) by pressing the [MENU] button.

Changing songs This lets you select other songs having roughly the same tempo as the song currently playing or jump back to the beginning of the current song.

2 Press the (Down) button to select the next song as desired. Pressing the (Up) button returns to the top (beginning) of the current song. Pressing the (Down) button skips to the next or previous song (in the current Playlist or among all songs) that has roughly the same tempo as the currently active exercise tempo. Songs that do not match the current tempo will be skipped over. To better understand this, consider the example song Playlist below:

If your exercise pace is about 140 bpm in this situation, a song having a tempo of about 140 bpm will be played back. When Song 1 is played back, for example, you can skip to Song 3 or Song 4 by using the (Down) button. Songs 2 and 5 cannot be selected in this way, since they differ too greatly from the current tempo.

After ten seconds, the Select Song display automatically closes and returns to the previous display. You can also close the Select Song display manually (before the ten seconds are up) by pressing the [MENU] button twice. (Pressing it once calls up the Pace display. Pressing it again calls up the normal display.)

n

When the Learning Function (page 74) is on, the skip/top count is memorized. When you skip a song, the BF-1 memorizes this action, assuming that the song is one that you dont like, and accordingly lowers the playback priority of the song. If you rewind (go back to the top of) the song, the song is memorized as a favorite and according raises the playback priority.

Locking the pace This function lets you maintain the current tempo (or one of your selection) indenitely. Your physical conditions in exercising (pace, heart rate, etc.) have no effect on the music tempo while the tempo is locked.

Managing the Exercise Logs

Each time you exercise with the BF-1, a new exercise log is automatically generated, creating a record of important information about your exercise session and your physical conditions. This information includes the date and time of your session, the distance covered, the average pace of your walking/ jogging, the amount of calories you expended, and your maximum heart rate (the highest recorded pulse during the session). The logs also provide two different graphs: one showing the changes in your pace during the session, the other showing changes in your heart rate during the same time.

Since your exercise logs are automatically stored to internal memory (up to 99 sessions), you can call up these logs and check your past exercise sessions. This feature also lets you view cumulative datafor example, how much total distance you walked or ran in a specic week, or how many calories you expended during a specic month.

n

The BF-1 has memory space for up to 99 exercise session logs. When you exceed this number, the earliest ones will automatically be deleted to make room for the new logs. By using the included software to transfer your data to computer, you can store all your exercise logs and not need to worry about the 30-log limit.

From the Top Menu, select Data.

Checking the Exercise Logs

1 From the Data menu, select the desired category: Workouts, Days, Weeks or Months. When selecting Workouts, you can view individual exercise session logs.

Mix Audio songs and BODiBEAT songs are mixed in a 50/50 ratio.

BODiBEAT Songs Only the pre-loaded BODiBEAT songs are played. (Audio songs are not selected.)

About the BODiBEAT songs The BF-1 contains many short phrases of specic song partsfor example, rhythm parts, melody parts, bass parts, and so on. Some of these are randomly and automatically chosen and mixed, giving you literally hundreds of thousands of songs suitable for your exercise sessions.

Tempo Guide This lets you turn on the sound of the Tempo Guide. (Tempo Guide is a sound that clicks for each beat, to help you feel the tempo of the song.) When you turn the Tempo Guide function on, the sound will come on only when your pace deviates from the basic tempo of the song.

Half Tempo This allows you to broaden the tempo criteria for songs to include songs that are at half the current tempo. For example, if the current pace is 160 bpm, you can set Half Tempo to On, and songs at 80 bpm will be included along with songs at 160 bpm. In other words, songs that are exactly twice as slow as the current pace will play back. Since the pace is mathemati- cally half, you can continue jogging/walking at the current pace and still stay in time with the music. This lets you program relaxing, slow-paced music for your exercising, and yet maintain a fast-paced exercise.

When Half Tempo is set to Off, only music at the selected tempo will play back.

n

Half Tempo is available only for the audio songs and only when using the Free Workout mode.

From the Workout Music menu, select the Half Tempo parameter.

Available settings: Off, On

Step Sensor This lets you adjust how sensitive the BF-1 sensor is to your pace. Normally, the BF-1 detects the exercise pace (tempo) when it recognizes your steps continuing at the same tempo within a certain range. If you nd that the exercise pace of the BF-1 slips out of sync with your walking/ jogging stride, adjusting the setting here can improve the pace recognition.

From the Sensors menu, select the Step Sensor parameter.

Available settings: High Sensitivity, Normal Sensitivity, Low Sensitivity

Normal is the default setting and should be ne for most people and situations. If the BF-1 doesnt seem to be responding properly, try changing the setting. Select High if your stride is reliably constant and it is easy for you to match the pace. Select Low if your stride varies too much within the pace. The Low setting allows you to deviate from the pace slightly, yet have the BF- 1 ignore those deviations and stay at the same pace.

Pace Sensor This allows you to tailor the response of the BF-1 to changes in your walking/jogging speed. In the Free Workout mode, the BF-1 recognizes that you intend to change the pace when you speed up or slow down the pace greater than a certain range. Changing this setting lets you adjust how sensitive the BF-1 is in responding to your pace changes.

Learning Function The BF-1 memorizes the skip/top count and analyzes the playback priority for each song. It also memorizes your manual pace change and calculates your optimal pace and maximum heart rate in the Fitness modes and Training mode. These features are together called the Learning function. When you change songs while exercising, the BF-1 memorizes the skip/top countin other words, the number of times you skip over certain songs or go back to the top of certain songsand determines the playback priority of the song. If a song has a high skip count (meaning you often skip it and go on to another song), it is given a lower playback priority. If a song has a high top count (meaning you often rewind back to the top of the song), it is given a higher playback priority. When you change the pace manually while exercising, the BF-1 memorizes the pace changes and your heart rate and calculates your optimal starting pace, fastest pace and maximum heart rate. If the calculated maximum heart rate differs from the maximum heart rate setting you set before, you can manually register the new value to the BF-1. If you change your pace manually or change songs while exercising, a conrmation message will appear when the workout reaches its end to prompt you to memorize the changed information.

The sound is not heard from the earphones, or is only heard from one ear. Make sure that the earphone connector is rmly connected to the device

(page 17).

Make sure that the volume is not set to minimum (pages 42 and 59).

The LED doesnt ash even if I attach the pulse sensor. The LED ashes only during an exercise session in the Free Workout, Walk

Fitness, Jog Fitness or Training modes, or when the Checking HR display is shown (page 72). In all other situations, the LED is off.

My heart rate cannot be detected. Make sure to rmly connect the earphone cable to the device.

Gently rub or massage your ear to stimulate blood circulation.

Try changing the pulse sensor location.

Adjust the sensitivity or the pulse sensor (page 66).

Wipe the lens of the pulse sensor with a soft and dry cloth. If dirt, oil or sweat adheres to the lens of the pulse sensor, your pulse may not be detected properly.

Song doesnt change even when I speed up or slow down the pace. Adjust the Pace Sensor and/or Step Sensor settings (page 66).

The device becomes hot during charging. Some heat during charging is normal. However, if the device becomes

extremely hot, some malfunction may have occurred. Have the device inspected by qualied Yamaha service personnel.

Power cannot be turned off while charging the battery with the AC power adaptor. This is normal. The BF-1 is always on during battery charging, for power

control purposes, when connected with the optional AC power adaptor.

It takes a certain amount of time to start up and/or shut down. This is normal and indicates that the device is analyzing the music data and/

or exercise log data. (Depending on the data size, this may take a few minutes.)

One song (or a few songs) is repeatedly played while exercising. There are few songs which match in tempo to your exercise pace in the BF-

1. Make sure to load more songs of the appropriate tempo from your computer or set the Music Priority setting to Mix or BODiBEAT Songs (page 61).

After connecting with the computer, some information is changed (Training Programs, User Settings, etc.) Depending on the synchronize setting of BODiBEAT Station, the data on the

BODiBEAT Station will automatically transferred to the BF-1 and the information on the BF-1 will be replaced when you connect the BF-1 to the computer. For more information, refer to the BODiBEAT Station Owners Manual.

In the Training mode, I set the appropriate target as Pace but the played songs tempo seems to be different from the set pace. The pace is determined based on the jog stride setting. If the stride setting

differs from your actual stride, the tempo of the song playing back while exercising may be too fast or too slow. Change the stride setting (page 73).

The distance of the exercise logs seems to be wrong. The distance you walk or jog is calculated based on your stride setting

(page 73). Entering the exact value for your walking/jogging stride may bring the calculated distance closer to the actual value.

The time of the exercise logs seem to be wrong. The clock of the BF-1 may go wrong or stop if you dont use the BF-1 for a

long period or you dont adjust the time for a long period. To avoid this situation, check the Date/Time setting frequently (page 70).

A Memory Full message appears during creating/editing the training program and a new program/segment cannot be created. The number of programs/segments that can be saved to the BF-1 is limited

(refer to page 37). If a Memory Full message appears, save all programs within the BODiBEAT Station software to your computer and delete them from the BF-1. Then, load only the ones you need from the computer to the device just before exercising.
