CORE is validated for different uses cases, depending on the algorithm mode selected. On this page, you will find if your intended use case is covered by CORE. If you have any questions regarding this topic, please contact us. For more information about our algorithm technology, please check a full description on greenTEG's site. For a detailed explanation of how data accuracy and validation works, check our blog post on the topic.
Everyday living mode
When a heart rate monitor is not paired (or not in range), CORE uses a Low Activity Mode Algorithm which we also refer to as the Everyday living mode. The algorithm exclusively calculates using temperature and heat transfer signals from the sensor and the most “straightforward” approach of calculating core body temperature.
Run the Everyday Living Mode in the following cases
Intense Endurance Sports Activity Mode
To enable this mode, a heart rate monitor is paired to the CORE Body Temperature Monitor. When CORE is operating and detects the heart rate monitor’s signal, it switches to the Intense Endurance Sports Activity Algorithm. CORE can be paired with numerous heart rate monitors and it will then use the signal from the first heart rate monitor it detects. This Algorithm mode has been developed to achieve faster core body temperature calculation, making it more suitable for intense endurance sports activity.
Run the Intense Endurance Sports Activity Mode in the following cases
Use cases in validation
Some other cases, either for sports or extreme situations, are still being validated internally with the help of our research partners. CORE is not yet recommended for these cases, as the accuracy will be lower.
