The DATA CENTER can be used for all TOPLINE 2009, TOPLINE 2012, and ROX series devices.
When using a chest belt, what do I have to consider to ensure that my heart rate can be correctly measured?
To activate the chest belt, regardless of the model, the electrodes must be moist. If these are NOT moist, a seamless heart rate measurement cannot be guaranteed.
My heart rate is only correctly displayed after approx. 15 min. What can I do?
If an inaccurate heart rate reading is often displayed at the start of a training session, this can be due to the chest belt being too dry. If you experience this problem regularly, also moisten the chest belt at the points that are directly beneath the contact surfaces of the chest belt. This will provide moisture for the first few minutes until you start to sweat. The heart rate measurement should now work properly again.
Where can I get the DATA CENTER evaluation software?
DATA CENTER can be purchased from the SIGMA online shop at www.sigma-data-center.com.
What must I consider when taking care of my chest belt?
Care instructions for the standard chest belt: After every training session, wash the belt and the transmitter with clean water and hang them up to dry.

Regularly clean the transmitter with a mild soap solution.

Wash the belt regularly (every 3 - 4 weeks) using your washing machine’s hand wash program. For washing, only use mild detergent and a wash bag. Care instructions for textile chest belts such as COMFORTEX/COMFORTEX+: Remove the transmitter from your COMFORTEX/COMFORTEX+ chest belt after every training session. Wash the COMFORTEX/COMFORTEX+ belt with clean water and hang it up to dry.

Wash the COMFORTEX/COMFORTEX+ chest belt regularly (every 3 - 4 weeks) using your washing machine’s hand wash program. For washing, only use mild detergent and a wash bag.

Please note that you should never put your COMFORTEX/COMFORTEX+ in a dryer or allow it to dry in direct sunlight. It should also not be bleached or ironed

Never clean your COMFORTEX/COMFORTEX+ chest belt with aggressive detergents or chemicals.
Are additional accessories needed to transmit and evaluate the trip data?
The trip data can be manually input directly into the software or automatically transmitted using the optionally available docking station.

The docking station not only enables you to automatically transmit data but also to conveniently configure your bike computer via your PC.

It can be purchased from the SIGMA online shop at www.sigma-data-center.com or in store from your specialist retailer.
Why is the bike computer displaying the message "Low Bat" even though the voltage reading shows as 3V?

A pure voltage measurement (e.g. with a multimeter) without any battery load does not provide precise information about the (residual) capacity of a button cell battery. The battery can still have a voltage of 3 V without load but of only 2.4 V when under load, e.g. if the wireless receiver is operating.

How does Sigma determine if a battery is dead?
The bike computer measures the voltage of the button cell under a defined load. It can then calculate the cell’s residual capacity based on the voltage dip under this load. The "Low Bat" message is activated when the total capacity falls below approx. 25%.
What minimum and maximum temperatures are displayed?

Minimum temperature: 14°F/-10°C

Maximum temperature: 158°F/70°C

What is the purpose of the intensity zones?

Intensity zones originate from sports medicine and are mainly used in relation to endurance training. Intensity zones help to track long term fitness goals where target zones are best for short term goals. In the ROX 5.0 and ROX 6.0, the default setting is as follows:

BE1: Basic endurance 1, 60-70% of the HR max

BE1/2: Basic endurance 1/2, 70-80% of the HR max

BE2: Basic endurance 2, 80-90% of the HR max

CE: Competition endurance, 90 – 100% of the HR max

What is the purpose of the target zone?

The target zone defines the heart rate range in which you should be training. A visual and acoustic alarm signals if your heart rate is outside this zone.

Can I change the battery of ROX 10.0 GPS?

The capacity of a Lithium Ion battery naturally decreases over the life cycle of the battery. The ROX 10.0 GPS lithium ion battery is guaranteed to maintain 75% capacity (9 hours) for up to 2 years, or 300 complete battery charge cycles; whichever comes first. After this warranty period, a battery exchange program is available through SIGMA SPORT USA for $79.99 .
