Using your MZ-3
How do I use my MZ-3?
Your MZ-3 picks up electrical signals generated by the contractions of your heart. To be effective, your MZ-3 belt must be worn under your clothing to make proper contact with your skin. To wear it, place the
module in the center of your chest on top of your sternum with the logo facing out. The MZ-3 should fit snugly but comfortably around your chest.
How do I adjust the size of my MZ-3 strap?
You adjust the strap size using the plastic adjusters. To shorten it, use both hands to pull the adjusters apart. To lengthen it, hold one end in one hand and use your other hand to pull the upper adjuster downwards.
Can I use my MZ-3 outside of a Myzone support facility?
Yes, if you are live streaming your session to the Myzone App, your data is regularly uploading to your account. If you workout without live streaming to the App, your belt will store the data until you open your Effort Stream while wearing your belt, or until you stand within range of the Myzone receiver at your facility. You will see an updated date and time at the bottom of the Effort Stream page upon successful upload. Keep in mind that your belt has 14 to 16 hours of stored data capacity.
How do I know my belt is on and recording my heart rate?
The belt will beep 1 time when the belt is activated and 3 times when you take it off.
How is my heart rate displayed on the screen in a Myzone support facility?
Once you have created your Myzone account at www.myzonemoves.com, your Myzone MZ-3 is automatically detected by the Myzone receiver in the facility when you are within range of the receiver. Depending on the layout of the space and the gym, a user can typically show on the screen if they are within 6,000 square feet of the receiver with clear sight and the receiver does not have any obstructions to the user.
On the screen you will have a dedicated tile that shows your nickname, calories burnt, current heart rate in beats per minute, Myzone Effort Points and status ranking, and in the center, a% of your maximum effort.
How do I know my module has a low battery?
You will receive a notification from Myzone when your module detects <20% of battery life. Your MZ-3 comes with a charging cable that will be used when you charge your module. To charge, plug the USB into a laptop or use a standard 5V adapter and plug it into a wall outlet.

How does my workout data upload to my Myzone account?
Your personal workout data is wirelessly updated to your Myzone account using the Myzone App or will upload automatically when you are live streaming to a Myzone supported facility's console. If you are uploading stored data, be sure to wear your belt when you upload your data. If you are uploading via the app, confirm your belt is on (1 beep = on) and navigate to the 'home' tile. Refresh the page until you see an option to 'rename your workout' which indicates a successful upload.
If you are uploading stored data to a Myzone facility console, simply wear the belt and stand in front of the Myzone tv until you see your name scroll at the top of the software with a time stamp. This indicates a successful upload.
When will I receive my reports and be able to view my data online?
Within 30 minutes of your upload, you will receive an email report to your nominated email account of your latest session. On the email, there will be a link to www.myzonemoves.com. Data will be immediately
available on your www.myzonemoves.com account or on your Myzone App.
How many hour's worth of data will my MZ-3 store?
14-16 hours of activity will be stored on your module.
Can I upload my data at home?
Yes, your belt stores data away from your Myzone facility and will upload it to your account both when the belt is connected to the Myzone App and upon returning to the range of the Myzone Hub at your
How can I record two separate workout sessions?
Your belt must be off for a total of 10 minutes before turning the belt back on for your second session. If your belt is off for less than 10 minutes, then your second session will be combined with your first workout session graph.
Can I have more than one MZ-3?
You are only able to register 1 Myzone MZ-3 per Myzone facility and email address.
Can I still wear my MZ-3 if I have a hairy chest?
Yes, however, you may need to moisten the contact pads located on the fabric strap to improve the conductivity of the pads. You can also try rotating the red strap so that the contact pads are located on your back where there might be less interference.
I have a heart condition, should I take any special precautions when wearing my MZ-3?
It is always encouraged to discuss the start of a fitness regimen with your primary care doctor first before engaging in physical activity. Myzone is not meant to be a tool that will detect heart conditions or irregularities, so it will be important to take precautions and monitor your exercise and stop immediately if you do not feel good.
Is the MZ-3 waterproof?
Although the Myzone MZ-3 is waterproof, it is not appropriate to gather data while swimming due to water causing the strap to regularly detach from the chest. It is waterproof up to 10 meters.
