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?

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.

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. januar 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.

Bonjour, pouvez vous m aider, j ai installé l appli mais ça ne fonctionne pas, j'en arrive a avoir aucune donnees de vo2 max, il y a t il quelque chose de spécifique à faire, j ai une vivoactive

Bonjour Lessire et merci pour votre commentaire. Ce datafield fonctionne parfaitement, mais pour cela, il faut qu'il ait été intégré à un profil d'activité sportive, en l'occurrence ici, le profil course à pied. Ouvrez le profil course, entrez dans le mode édition du profil, choisissez un écran de données et paramètrez-le sur 1 donnée puis, intégrez le champ IQ Running VO2 comme nouveau champ de données. Sauvegardez la modification et sortez du mode édition. En défilant maintenant les écrans du profil sportif, vous devriez voir apparaître mon datafield. Lorsque vous lancerez l'activité, tous les calculs s'effectueront automatiquement, résultats que vous pourrez alors consulter dans Garmin Connect une fois votre activité synchronisée avec Connect. N'hésitez pas à me contacter par mail si vous rencontrez toujours des difficultés.

Nice data field! Lots of useful info-almost too much while running, but once I get used to it, I’m sure this will help me in my training! Good job!

Did a test: Cycling app showed 5 ml/kg/min more than the running app at maximum (nearly same conditions, same pace etc). Is it possible to add watts (via Stryd for instance) to the running formula?
9. august 2019 | Version 1.47
I can only give three stars now because I have been unable to even find it on my watch!
I have a Forerunner 735 XT and was really looking forward to getting an ongoing assessment of my VO2 max. I downloaded the app, and according to Garmin Express, it has been installed on my watch - but - where is it?
Suspect I have done something wrong and would appreciate any help offered!

Hello Nick. As explained on the description, this is a data field not an application and needs to be added to a single data screen within a sport activity.
1- go to settings, apps, sport activity, data screen, screen 1
2- set layout to 1 field
3- set field 1 to ConnectIQ Fields, JMGDTFRunningVO2

Great data field and very useful. Though I don't get the same score in the Garmin watch I think the watch score is the wrong one. Thankyou!!!

Une l’application chargée et installée sur la montre, comment fait-on pour la lancer svp ???
30. maj 2019 | Version 1.47
Garmin told me VO2max at 50 and this app at 46,5
I've done a interval training to go at the max to obtain this result.
What is the difference in term of computation algorithm ? Which one is the "good one" ?
Many thanks for your answer.
PS : suggestion : instead of 1 data field written in small on my VivoActive3, why not 2 data field, to allow bigger figures (easier to read ... :-)) thanks !
26. maj 2019 | Version 1.47
Great data field! It is pretty much what I was looking for to have on my vivoactive 3. Just a minor point: Could you maybe also add the export of the calculated training effect, so that it can be checked as well in the saved activity in the app. Right now it can only be read during the activity on the watch. That would be great! Thank you in advance.
27. maj 2019, Surfy66
Hello Flo and thanks for your comment. Actually, the Training Effect value is already saved by default by Garmin, you can find it in the summary of the activity.
19. april 2019 | Version 1.46
This feature is great, thank you! Using it from treadmill running. It would be great if it could integrate with Garmin Graphs for historic. Is there a way at least to extract data build a graph on the computer?
27. maj 2019, Surfy66
Hello Marco and thanks for your comment. In fact, when you synchronize your device with Garmin Connect, the activity is transferred to your Garmin profile then, you can see it in the list of all your activities, with all the data and graphs displayed.

I'm using your VO2 apps for both running and cycling; Garmin missed the boat on this feature on my fenix watch and I'm really happy you're filling the gap. Thanks!

I worked on a running simulator and in the report, the Vi2max classes is 41, and in the Garmin Conect program, the VO2max indicator did not change the indicator and remained equal to 39, why?
26. februar 2019, Surfy66
Hello and thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, it's not possible to modify the VO2 calculated by Garmin with third party calculated data. That's the reason the Garmin VO2 did not changed by this datafield.

Question regarding Elliptical
I trained for 50 min with peak of 169 (max is 175) bpm
Sustained 20 min above 158 bpm and VO2 shows no record at all...
22. januar 2019, Surfy66
Hello and thanks for your comment. This datafield was originally developed for use in dynamic running, so it means that it requires a non-zero speed to operate and calculate the value of VO2 max, something impossible on an elliptical trainer with a zero-speed value. So, this will unfortunately not be possible to adapt this datafield for this activity

Congrats on being the only third party app to do this (at least that I can find). Amazing data field with VO2 dynamically updated during a run/cycle. The standard Garmin VO2 reports (which are static not dynamic) do not take elevation into account as I understand it. So if you run up a big hill VO2 will be worse than running on the flat. I wondered if this app does or could integrate elevation, which would be very neat (perhaps the maths is too hard). I know it can only ever be an estimate outside the physiology lab, but lets face it we are all obsessed by VO2 and the more accurate you can make the estimate the better. Keep up the good work.
