The Performance Monitor turns on automatically when you do any of the following:
- Pull the handle(s) on the indoor rower or SkiErg
- Push a button on the PM
- Insert a LogCard into the PM
- Connect the PM to a computer
- Insert batteries or a battery pack
The PM turns off automatically. When the PM is displaying the Main Menu, it will turn off after one minute of inactivity; otherwise, it will turn off after four minutes of inactivity. A spinning flywheel is considered activity, so the count starts once the flywheel stops.
