songs), you may find that the song tempo does not match your pace. If this is the case, you can
manually correct the tempo information with the BODiBEAT Station software. For details, refer to
the BODiBEAT Station Owner’s Manual.


While you’re jogging or walking, you can change the volume of the
music, select different songs, or lock the pace.
