Overview

Atlas Multi-Trainer 3 is the most advanced fitness tool compatible with many workout modalities.

You can discover and create custom workouts with the Atlas Fitness app and add them to your Multi-Trainer 3. The Atlas watch is compatible with many workout modes that cover many genres of fitness.

Workouts are organized into groups. All workouts within the workout groups in your library are available on your Multi-Trainer 3.

Atlas Body Sensing is compatible with thousands of exercises. You must first calibrate an exercise with 3 recordings before it will be automatically sensed. Learn more about calibrating your Atlas Multi-Trainer.

I follow a "Reps And Sets" routine

Atlas supports a wide variety of workout modalities. One of the most common types of workouts is based on repetitions and sets with a variety of exercises. These are example settings for a simple reps and sets workout.

Create the workout, add the workout to your Atlas Multi-Trainer and start the workout. The workout timer begins and the first exercise in the routine appears. The Multi-Trainer senses your repetitions and after a few repetitions, updates to display the total counted repetitions. After completing the pre-set repetition target, the Multi-Trainer vibrates to let you know you hit your target. Atlas Multi-Trainer then automatically starts your rest timer and counts down to your next set. When the rest timer reaches 0, the Multi-Trainer vibrates again to let you know it's time to start moving again!

I make up my workout as I go

Sometimes the map to success is already in your head. You already know what you want to do, and when you want to do it. You just want Atlas Multi-Trainer to log your workout. These are example settings for a simple unguided (freestyle) workout.

Workout Mode

Unguided (Freestyle)

You must add any exercise you may perform to the unguided workout. Atlas Multi-Trainer can sense up to 50 exercises in a single workout.

Create the workout, add the workout to your Atlas Multi-Trainer and start the workout. The workout timer begins and the list of exercises appears on the display. The Multi-Trainer senses all calibrated exercises in the ticker. You can begin to perform any of the exercises in the list and after a few repetitions, updates to display the total counted repetitions. After you complete the set, Atlas Multi-Trainer automatically starts your rest timer and counts up until you literally begin your next set.

I do different exercises to warm up before I start my workout

Atlas Multi-Trainer organizes your workouts into different sessions. Since sessions can be compared over time, keeping your Warm-Up separate from your "actual" workout makes it easy to compare the same workout to itself, apples to apples. If you do different exercises to warm up before you start your actual workout, try the following recommendations.

  1. Create TWO workouts, "Warm Up A" and "Actual Workout".
Warm Up Workout: Unguided (freestyle) workouts are fantastic for a dynamic warm up. In the example below, you can add all the types of exercises you like to perform in your workout. In unguided (freestyle) workouts, you can perform any of the calibrated exercises and Atlas Multi-Trainer automatically identifies and tracks your completions.
  1. Then add the workouts to your Atlas Multi-Trainer and start the "Warm Up A" workout.
  2. After completing the warm up, save and end the session.
  3. Then find and start the "actual" workout.

When reviewing your log, your warm up and actual workout will be displayed as two separate sessions. You can then view your progress within each session to compare your progress over time.

I do the same warm up before my workout

Atlas Multi-Trainer organizes your workouts into different sessions. Since sessions can be compared over time, keeping your Warm-Up separate from your "actual" workout makes it easy to compare the same workout to itself, apples to apples. If you do different exercises to warm up before you start your actual workout, try the following recommendations.

  1. Create TWO workouts, "Warm Up C and "Actual Workout".
Warm Up Workout: Standard guided workouts are fantastic for a warm up routine. In the example below, you can add the specific exercises and set targets you want to perform before your workout. In guided workouts, you can specify the order and set targets for each set and Atlas Multi-Trainer guides and senses your exercises.
  1. Then add the workouts to your Atlas Multi-Trainer and start the "Warm Up C" workout.
  2. After completing the warm up, save and end the session.
  3. Then find and start the "actual" workout.

When reviewing your log, your warm up and actual workout will be displayed as two separate sessions. You can then view your progress within each session to compare your progress over time.
