Display Modes

Time

  • Time mode is the default display mode and shows the time, the activity meter man and the battery level.
  • The activity meter man shows your progress towards your step count target for the day. The default target is 10,000 steps per day. You can change this to be higher or lower by adding the Step It Up habit (visit our habit description page for more information) and setting a daily target. The next time you sync your device, the target will update to match your personal choice. The trophy icon indicates that the daily step target has been reached.
  • Basis Sync automatically sets the time on your device every time you sync. If the time on your Basis Band is incorrect, please follow the steps here.

Date

  • Pressing the bottom left touch button (button #2) while the time is displayed will bring up the Date display mode. The Date display mode shows the date, month and day of the week.
  • When the backlight goes off, the screen automatically reverts to Time mode.

Activity Screen

  • The Activity Screen is displayed during walking, running or biking. It is normally activated after you have been walking for 2 minutes, running for 30 seconds or biking for 3-5 minutes - times may vary if you are switching from one activity to the other.
  • Under the current time, the screen shows how long you’ve been walking / running / biking. (The length of time only refers to the current session of activity - it is not a cumulative total for the whole day so far).
  • You can switch between the Time, Date and Activity Screen by pressing the bottom left touch button (button #2).

Heart Rate

  • To get to this display mode, scroll through the various Metric display modes by pressing either of the touch buttons on the right-hand side (buttons #3 and #4) repeatedly.
  • If the heart icon is full and pulsing, this indicates that the heart rate is current. 

  • If an empty heart icon is shown beside the heart rate reading, that indicates that this was the last known reading. This happens when the Basis Band is unable to capture your current heart rate.

(For further information, please see http://www.mybasis.com/basis-heart-rate-tracking/)

  • An animated wave next to an empty heart icon indicates that the heart rate signal is being evaluated.

  • A line of dots next to an empty heart icon indicates that the Basis band is not on wrist, or is not detecting that it's on wrist.

Steps

  • To get to this display mode, scroll through the various Metric display modes by pressing either of the touch buttons on the right-hand side (buttons #3 and #4) repeatedly.
  • The Steps display mode shows the total number of steps taken so far that day.

 

Calories

  • To get to this display mode, scroll through the various Metric display modes by pressing either of the touch buttons on the right-hand side (buttons #3 and #4) repeatedly.
  • The Calories display mode shows the total number of calories burned so far that day. This includes both resting calorie burn as well as calories burned through activity.
  • In order to give you a more accurate calorie count for your full day, the Basis Band estimates your caloric burn based on your BMR when off wrist. This helps keep your total daily calorie count more accurate if you take the band off for a short while. This off-wrist calorie count is an estimate, since when the Basis Band is off your wrist, we can't know what specific activities you may have been doing.

Walking / Running / Biking

  • To get to these display modes, scroll through the various Metric display modes by pressing either of the touch buttons on the right-hand side (buttons #3 and #4) repeatedly.
  • Each display mode shows the total length of time spent walking / running / biking so far that day.
  • The number on the top of the screen, next to the little flame icon shows the total number of calories burned through walking / running / biking so far that day. (BodyIQ currently detects only outdoor cycling, not stationary biking / spinning.)
