I managed to pair my Heart Rate monitor (Samsung Galaxy Fit Fitness Tracker) to the app with no issues.

However, I wanted to find out how do I adjust the HR zones shown on the app since different people have different HR zones.

Hi @Snowie, have you gone through this process to find your max heart rate?

Finding Your Max Heart Rate

To find your max heart rate, strap on your Echelon heart rate monitor, jump on the bike, and start with a ten-minute warm-up. Next, every 30 seconds, increase your output by 15 watts (or 1 mph of speed). Your max heart rate is the last 30 seconds of work before your watts decrease. Take note of this number, and use it to create your heart rate training zones.

Googling “heart rate zone calculator” provides a plethora of websites to assist with your calculations. Several mobile apps (iOS, Android) offer similar guidance. Below is output from FitDigits.com’s heart rate zone calculator.

So the next time your instructor mentions a zone, you’ll be able to respond appropriately with your effort. Remember to listen to your body. If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Your Echelon bike will be ready for you on your next ride.

Thanks, I know very well how to get my max HR as well as my correct HR zones. Which was why I was asking the question.

My question has to do with the app. Since the app can display HR, and apparently some semblance of "zones", how do I SET the zones so it matches mine? Otherwise it's meaningless.

Yep, apparently no way to actually set your max HR on the Echelon which makes the zones feature pretty useless.

Can anyone from Echelon prove us wrong here and guide us to a magical setting somewhere so we can customize our zones?

Update: You can set your zones by changing maxHR by logging into the Echelon website and changing your age. Looks like they use a standard 220-age formula for maxHR. Thanks to @TimmyH for the tip!
