Why the variance in v02 max between this and Garmin app? I also see that cardiac drift is available in details of my run from this app; I don't see any mention of that in the details provided here; can you share how that is calculated?
4. července 2021, Surfy66
Hello and thanks for your comment. Algorithms are probably different but, after a certain number of sessions, you will see that the smoothed VO2 will tend to approach the VO2 calculated by Garmin
Cardiac drift is explained in the text description, as follow:
Cardiac drift corresponds to a large upward deviation of the HR at equal speed / pace. In this DF, the cardiac drift begins to be checked and calculated after 10 minutes of running, the drift is displayed next to the HR and these 2 values then go red as long as there is a drift.

The 21 October 2020 latest update has a dark background not too sure why, quite hard reading metrics

Hello Thato and thanks for your comment. I did not personally update the datafield on this 10/21, it was an automatic one from Garmin so, you can check the background color of your data fields in the general settings of your activity, this Garmin update may have changed it

Seems to work well for my Garmin Approach S62, get similar result to what I got from my old tracker so no complaints.

No lo puedo utilizar en mi vivo active hr

Had to reset my watch. After 2 days (this was the only change made) my battery started draining at 89% per day. Not good. Not sure is anyone else had this issue. Loved the data, but I would have had to charge my watch every day and then some. Might as well go back to the Galaxy at that point.

Hi team. I want to download the app for cycling. When I try to access the link for cycling, it brings me back to the same running app. What am I doing wrong?

More accurate than built-in VO2 from Firstbeat, if you use HRM strap!! [Forerunner 245 & Feix 5 plus].

Spent 81% of my workout time in Anaerobic/Maximum zones and my V02 Max is 41 and am almost in red zone??? I am using a Garmin Vivo Active 3 and have input my correct age, height and weight and the heart rate monitor is accurate.
3. srpna 2020, Surfy66
Hey man ! Before posting such comment, you should know that the VO2 is not only determined with the HR value only, but with other parameters like speed, pace, etc. So, if you run "almost in red zone" at 3 mph, you can understand that you won't get the same VO2 max as if you run "almost in red zone" at 9 mph... That may probably explain your result, sorry.

Works greate. But is there a Option To Show it in the Garmin Connect App Like Garmin (smooths the vo2 all over runs). Since Garmin doesnt Show me the vo2 any more on my vivoactiv 4s i thought this App could Show me this insteat. But greate Job.thanks.

Great data field, a must have and definitely one I'd recommend to anyone. Performing a Cooper Test now with a warm up delay makes it perfect for me. Great developer, very good work!

Hi can anyone tell me how it works? I have forerunner 245 but I have no idea where on my watch it is!? Thanks

first of all thanks for this wonderful datafield.
Today I tried it on a long run, and everything was working fine, incl. writing into fit file.
But there is one thing I do not understand. At the end of the run my Garmin watch (Fenix 6s) said VO2max of 46. But your data says between 30 and 34 during the run.
This seems to me a little bit far off ... almost 50%.
Do you have any idea what happended or what I made wrong?
Do I have to do any settings?
27. dubna 2020, Surfy66
Hello Peter, and thanks for your review. The main difference between this datafield and the VO2 calculated by the firmware of your watch is that this datafield calculates your VO2 in real time, whereas Garmin smooths it all over your runs, which could explain the difference. The second thing to take in consideration is the reliability of the HR during the ride, as the datafield uses this datum to calculate the VO2. So, if your HR is not as accurate or reliable as it should be, the VO2 calculated in real time will not be accurate too and, as the datafield works fine for the whole majority of all the users (that it seems to be), this could also be the issue.

A little confusing at first, but I now understand what this means and feel a little better knowing my VO2max can be calculated more accurately. Thanks so much for this app. Hope you can get a job soon

Works only with the white background. If I choose black, it does not show data but only records it.

What is coopers test timing. As watch is vibrating continue while running.

He descargado la app y he sincronizado, pero no consign a accede a fella.
Podéis decirme como?

Hello Jose. First, to ask such a question, it would have been better to send me an email rather than posting a bad evaluation here which is not related to a malfunction of the datafield. If you can delete your comment after reading (or reassess the note), thank you.

Esta bien. Pero cuando pongo la pantalla se pone a vibrar.
8. ledna 2020, Surfy66
Hello and thanks for your comment. It's probably normal as there are two reasons when this datafield may vibrate: 1- your current HR exceeds your max HR (check if your max HR is correctly set into your profile); 2- you set the Cooper test with a duration of 0 mn. So, check those two conditions and this should solve the issue.
