Alpha Training Mode Explanation
There are two training stimulation modes for the Alpha 100, linear and traditional.
1. Linear: Has levels 1 through 18. 1 being barely noticeable and 18 being severe
2. Traditional: Has levels 1 through 6 with high, medium, and low options for each level. 1 low being barely noticeable and 6 High being severe.
With the Garmin Alpha regarding correction (shock) level, you have the option to select linear and traditional modes which basically give the same stimulation levels.
Traditional being a little more confusing for some. This is due to the L, M, H option for each of the 6 levels. For example as the chart below indicates, a 3 with the linear mode would be the same stimulation as a 1 high on the traditional mode, and a 13 on the linear mode would be the same stimulation as a 5 low on the traditional mode.
Double U recommends to use the linear Training mode to eliminate any and all confusion. The chart below illustrates the similarity and comparisons of the two(shock) modes.
