Is CORE right for me?

The CORE sensor is validated for specific activities and there are two algorithm modes available. This page will enable you to see if your intended use case is covered by the current capabilities of the CORE sensor.

An advantage of the CORE sensor technology is that the capabilities can be extended - when validation for a new activity is completed and the high level of accuracy is confirmed, the subsequent algorithm update is then available to all customers.

A detailed explanation of how data accuracy and validation works is outlined in this blog post.

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 the thermal energy transfer signals from the sensor to calculate core body temperature.

Sports Activity Mode

This mode is available when a heart rate monitor is paired to the CORE Body Temperature Monitor. When CORE is operating and detects the heart rate monitor’s signal and a sufficiently elevated heart rate, it switches to the Sports Activity Algorithm which is suited to sport activities such as running, cycling and triathlon. 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 to making it more suitable for intense endurance sports activity.

Use cases in validation

Many activities for sports or extreme situations are being validated internally with the help of our research partners. CORE is not yet recommended for these cases, as the accuracy will be lower.
