Screen during training

Control your screen during your practice time. There are 3 choices:

  • Default: the app doesn't interfere with your device's setting - if your screen dims in 10 sec idle, it will be the same while you are practicing;
  • Keep on all training: screen won't dim or turn off while you do your breathing exercises. It's very useful if you are new to this, so you don't get frustrated fighting with the screen dimming;
  • Turn off immediately: after you start the breathing session, screen will turn off. It's a good choice if you don't need to look at the training chart and are ok with guiding with sounds.
  1. Press on "Screen during training" item.
  2. Choose the screen behaviour you prefer.

Training duration

  • You can set the training duration either in time units (minutes and seconds) or in amount of cycles (their exact quantity). First is a good idea if you have just some certain time for your practice, for instance, no more than 10 minutesб the second — for ones who need the training with the certain cycle quantity.
  1. Press on "Training duration" item.
  2. Choose either "in amount of cycles" or "in time units".
  • Note that if you've chosen "in amount of cycles", the spinner for "Total training duration" lets you to pick the quantity of cycles.

Chart colors

  1. Press on a phase which color you'd like to change. In our case, "Retain".

  3. Once you are satisfied, press "OK".
  4. Also you can change the color of the "training progress bar" (inner circle in our case) - we go with silver instead of gold.
  • Note that the breath methods visual indicators have the same background color as the corresponding phase.
