5:30 is an invalid value for target pace?

maybe you should read the first line of the description....

I ran the Chicago Marathon in 2017 and 2018. The GPS signal bounces all over the buildings giving you inaccurate information. This app fixes that issue when it matters the most. I just donated (sorry for the delay Peter). I just learned about the Perfect Pace data field. I will be using this function for my training and ready for Chitown 2019.

Just to make sure, do I need to press lap button every one or 2 laps? Will the right recalculation still happen if I just press the lap button once, let say at KM30 because that is the time when I see the distance difference between GPS and the marker?
28. august 2019, peterdedecker
It will be fine if you just press the lap button at km 30. Generally I only correct the distance 2 or 3 times when I run a marathon. Cheers, Peter.

I can't used it since 25 Aug 2019. I try to delete and re install that it can use but if change pace or distance that it will hang again.

Please note that there are flashing banners on the free version that say "Like it?" and "Donate!". These are described by scrolling down the Description ................................ DONATIONS. The data field is fully functional without donating. Donations are optional but encouraged from within the data field with a small encouragement text. If you find Peter’s (Race) Pacer useful and/or Peter’s (Race) Pacer helps you to achieve your goal you can show your appreciation by donating an amount (suggested donation: 5 euro) on my PayPal account: https://www.paypal.me/PeterDeDecker/5eur (Mention the name of the app: "Peter's (Race) Pacer", tip: "choose donate to a friend" for less paypal fees)
After donation you will receive a donation key on your paypal email address which will remove the encouragement message from the data field. (this is a manual process, but normally you should receive a key within 24 hours) ................................................................................ I had a difficult time figuring out what to do with the key code after receiving it. I made a YouTube video to help other people facing the same problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msjbNnekiBc

Great app for marathon PR! I ran my best marathon to-date using Peter’s Pacer (2:56:18)!! Each press of the lap button at the mile marker gave me an accurate pace and spot on projected finish time!

Way to go and congrats on such a great marathon time (wow!) Cheers, Peter.

I run with this app marathon and it was great! The correction od distance is very useful.
Can you add the Current Heart Rate and Average Heart Rate please?
14. juli 2019, peterdedecker
Will do. Cheers, Peter.

How do you change the time or distance ? On the connect app or garmin device ?
12. juni 2019, peterdedecker
you do this through the application settings. See https://forums.garmin.com/developer/connect-iq/w/wiki/14/changing-your-app-settings-in-garmin-express-gcm-ciq-mobile-store

I just used this app yesterday for a marathon and it worked perfectly. I will never run a race without this app again! Every field is useful but particularly the field that shows if you are ahead or behind your time goal. I wouldn't have hit my goal time if it wasn't for this field pushing me to run faster! Thank you for such a great app!

I love the look of the app, and while I agree that the whole 'miles' distance unit thing doesn't make any sense, I live in the US and it is the mess I have to live with, any chance of selecting 'miles' as a units preference or using the units as specified in the app.
17. maj 2019, peterdedecker
Choose settings - system -units and select the right settings there. Also make sure to set the lap size to 1609 in the app settings (so that it corresponds with an autolap of 1 mile). Cheers peter

I've been using the Data Field for a couple of years and it has served me very well indeed, both in training and during races. I hadn't spotted there was also an app version. One thing I'm not clear about are the pros / cons of using the app vs. the Data Field. All thoughts / comments on this would be greatly received.
30. april 2019, peterdedecker
The differences are explained somewhat on the Peter's Pacer (The App) page. It has been on my to do (for a while now) to make a page that compares all my pacer apps, but I just haven't got to it yet (writing documentation isn't as much fun as creating a new app, but someday I'll get to it). Cheers, Peter.

I ran my first 10k using this data screen. I really liked the combination of heart rate, smoothed pace and ahead//behind timer.
It helpt me keep a steady pace throughout, using the ahead and behind time to compensate for uphill and downhill sections and occasionally glancing at my heart rate to make sure I wasn't going in the red too hard.
Being able to adjust the distance at each km sign worked really well too. Using the manual lap button I could see the exact time for every km and knowing the distance was correct made me have the confidence to speed up in the last section, beating my target time.
I donated and intend to use it for my first half marathon in a couple of weeks.

I ran the Copenhagen halfmarathon with this yesterday and 10k in Malmø the week before and this is a great app for racing. Both the behind/ahead field and especially the possibility to align "distance" (and the pace fields + the estimated finish time) once in a while with the official markers on the road during the race were extremelly helpfull (at the end people around me were "beeping" 100m before the official distance markers - GPS can be off by a lot, but I think most of it has to do with the impossibility to run the ideal line in a bigger race). Just a remark. It would be good to add an additional payment method for donating - paypal is hardly used in the Czech Republic. I think the case might be similar for other central and eastern Europeian countries.

Well spent money, I love this app. Everything for your competition on one screen.

Great screen: configurable, does what you need. This is the only widget/datafield/app that I happily donated 5€.

Glad you like the app so much and thank you for your support Joachim. Cheers, Peter.

So, I logged in to garmin express and all the settings i originally set were gone?
31. juli 2018, peterdedecker
Hi Vincent, the review system is not intended for support questions, it's preferred to use the support topic or the contact developer option. It's a Garmin bug that when a new version of the app is installed through gcm that all settings are erased (both in express and gcm). Cheers, Peter.

Yesterday I run a HM with the racer app. App performed well
Race was at 18:00 and in the forest.
This makes reading of the ETA time almost impossible. Please make the bottom line font bigger. I know there is not so much space but hope removing the text ETA will give a bit more space.
Hope you can do the same at the top line

Hey Enver, glad the app performed so well in your race! Data fields are very tight in the memory budget that they allow. With all the functionality already consuming a lot of memory, this means that I can not import custom fonts and have to rely on the system fonts that are being provided (I can't increase the font size of system fonts, they are as they are...). Cheers, Peter.
