This measure reports the rate of oxygen consumption during a maximal aerobic exercise involving a large part of total muscle mass.
With Hexoskin, your VO2max will be estimated by performing the fitness test “12 minute Run Fitness Test” (available on the Hexoskin App). Hexoskin VO2 max value is the equivalent of a Cooper test that is an estimate of the VO2max based on your profile information and the distance covered for a 12-minute run (measured with GPS data - to activate this feature, please refer to this link). Please note that the value of VO2max calculated is not based on the respiratory data collected by Hexoskin.
If the Cooper test has not been completed, Hexoskin will use an approximate value of the VO2max (according to the age of the person) in order to estimate the energy expenditure of the user.
