What is the battery life of my Band?

The PUSH Band is equipped with a Lithium Polymer battery which will give you 30 hours of continuous motion recording. While powered down your Band will hold it's charge for 12 days.

It only takes 1.5 hours to fully charge your PUSH Band, but If you're in a hurry you can get 50% of battery life off of just 30 minutes of charging.

When should I start and stop my exercise tracking?

The PUSH Band is designed to specifically monitor your exercises and not the time in between. Start tracking an exercise when the athlete is in position to lift. Stop tracking right after they finish their last rep.

Pressing the button at the top of the Band can both start and stop your set. Or, If you have your iOS device nearby, you can control it all from there.

What if the PUSH rep count is different than the actual?

Extra movement before or after a set may cause PUSH to display a rep count that is too high or too little. This won't happen often, but if it does we've made it easy for you to fix.

Edit your reps in the post set summary and the PUSH App will recalculate your velocity readings considering the new rep count.

Can I train multiple athletes?

Yes! By creating teams and athlete profiles in the PUSH App or PUSH Portal, you can train as many athletes as you'd like with one Band.

To ensure you are collecting accurate data, make sure you are selecting the proper athlete profiles. Height, weight, and lifting experience are all variables that significantly affect the PUSH Algorithms.

Does the PUSH Band track exercises in real time?

There are currently over 20 real time exercises supported by PUSH. The remaining exercises will give you each rep's velocity score immediately after the set.
