What is a Fitness DJ feature?

Fitness DJ automatically detects your training intensity and plays songs from music stored on your phone with a matching number of beats-per-minute (BPM). To activate this option go Menu > Settings > Fitness DJ > Turn on. Fitness DJ detects tracks from your phone that have BPM and match them to your heart rate during the workout. BPM (beats per minute) in music is an indicator that determines the speed of playing a song. The tracks are selected from the memory of your phone, folder /Music, which have a BPM tag and are sorted according to the pulse zones (custom heart rate zones may be configured by the users Menu > Settings > Heart Rate zones). Fitness DJ works in 2 modes:

  1. Track will be selected on the initial value of the pulse at the workout beginning, will be played to the end and then a new track will be picked up to the current pulse value (tracks will be played without interruptions).
  2. Tracks will be switched with the variation of workout intensity (heart rate zones), and they will be interrupted: to activate put a tick «Frequent song change».

What if I activated the option but still no music files detected?

If your list of songs is empty after activation of the Fitness DJ option that means the app didn’t detected music files with BPM parameter at your phone.

Note! SGT application can not identify BPM parameter of you music, it can only read this parameter, so the music should possess it. That’s why, if your music files do not have BPM tag, by activating Fitness DJ you will see the corresponding message and no list of music. To create a music collection with the BPM parameter, you can use third-party software programs that assign BPM parameter to the track. Also, you can:

  1. Search Google by keywords BPM detector, BPM counter, check out recommended software features, install it on your computer, follow the instructions to the software, create music files and upload it to your phone folder /Music.
  2. Or install the software recommended by us using the link (follow the instructions to the software).

Follow the instructions on the software installation, run the program, go to Options, check the box “Additional – Save BPM values inside IDE3 tags for MP3 files – Ok, then in the left part of the program specify the path to the folder with your music (this may be a folder on the computer, or the folder / Music on the phone).

The program will identify and assign BPM tag to the music (if you selected folder on your computer, transfer the music from this folder on the phone /Music), and then in the SGT application after activating Fitness DJ, you will see a list of music files with a parameter BPM, sorted by intensity zones.

What are Intensity zones? How it may be configured?

Custom heart rate zones are configurable by the users zones of pulse to display on the graph in which HR zones the user stayed while training. One can configure it at Menu > Settings > Intensity zones.
