Looking to make your workouts more interesting? Check out the games on your Performance Monitor. As well as providing variety, each game also has a more serious intention, such as helping to teach consistency at a given pace and stroke rate. The PM5 comes with the Fish Game, Darts, Target Training and Biathlon. The PM3 comes with the Fish Game and Biathlon. Read on for a brief description of each.

You can use the Biathlon Game to ski or row intervals alternating with target shooting or some other activity. Learn more
