I have my Polar F6 set up for Percentages rather than HR, and I just ignore the Not In Zone notice. My goal is to be consistant if I can, but if I go higher that's okay.

As for getting back in the zone you want, try altering the cardio you're doing to ease up a bit: take shorter steps in your jog perhaps.

Have you ever gone ABOVE what your 'personal training computer' says is the top of your Zone 3? What happens in the monitor, what where/what data is stored/recorded?

Background: I just got my first heart rate monitor 2 days ago, a Polar FT60. I don't think it's all set up correctly yet. My question is not health related, I'm just trying to figure out my new tool.

I went from a walk to a jog while on the treadmill this morning, and it beeped at me, 'not in zone'.

So, two-fold question: What happens in the HRM when this happens, and what do I need to do so this doesn't happen again?
