Keep screen on

If you are doing a workout where you need to see your exercise stats all times, you can choose to keep your screen on during your exercise.

Good to remember:

  • Keeping the screen on through the whole exercise significantly decreases the battery life.

  • As image persistence or screen burn-in is normal behaviour for OLED displays, keeping your screen on for long periods of time affects the life span of your display.

  • This feature is turned off after each exercise.
