Calibration overview

Updated 7 months ago by Peter Li

Because different body types and forms affect 3-dimensional motion patterns, a new user will need to calibrate their watch.

Calibration status icons (Green, red, and grey)

In the Atlas smartphone app, exercises that are already calibrated will be automatically sensed are designated by a green •. Exercises that require calibration are designated by a red • to the left of the exercise name. These exercises will not be automatically sensed. A new user will have green icons for 150 exercises, and red icons for the remaining exercises and any custom, user-added exercises.

Exercises that are set as "Manual" (e.g. isometric exercises like plank) will not be automatically Sensed are designated by a grey •. Learn more about logging isometric and non-repetitive exercises on Atlas Multi-Trainer.

In this example, Barbell Back Squat and Barbell Deadlift are calibrated and can be automatically sensed and logged by Atlas Multi-Trainer. Dumbbell Walking Lunge is an uncalibrated exercise that requires form recordings. Learn more about calibrating a new exercise. Wall Sit is an isometric exercise and requires manual logging.
