Love it, really frustrated Garmin hadn't written one themselves but this is great. Would love a countdown on the screen to help know what stage you are at i.e. run 3 of 8 etc but still this is fantastic, thank you

This is a fantastic data field. I love that you can change what day you are in within connect iq settings. Nearly all of the bad reviews are because people don't know how to use their watch. READ OR WATCH VIDEO ON GARMIN DATA FIELD. Since this is a data field you can integrate right into the run activity with screens however you like. My setting is 3 screens. Screen 1 is 3 fields...this on top, pace mid and HR bottom. I then have a 2nd screen that is distance, totally time and Avg HR. Last screen is HR zone. Love it!

8. April 2022 | Version 1.0.5

Once you know how to add it as a data field (thankfully I knew how to do this already) it was easy to use, and was helpful to be able to change the next run if needed. So good to have a couch25k that isn't a phone app or podcast. I agree with another comment that it would be good to have an audible notification.

Would be nice to have HR-zone top-screen, and the HR-number under the timer, can i change that in the datafield myself?

This is a good data field and if you need to step back or repeat a stage it is easy to do. I used in on my Venu but please make it compatible with the Instinct 2.

Don't know how to find and use this once it's been installed

2. Februar 2022 | Version 1.0.5

Works well as a data field. I had to redo a couple of my c25k weeks and was able to "rewind" in the settings.

This looks like a great data field for running. Some of the reviews below are due to user error I think, as this is a sata field for your running app and not an app itself.

Installed but can’t seem to find how to add it onto the watch or garmin app. Any ideas plz

Can someone please answer old mates question below. I’d also like to add it to my 6x solar

What are the steps to add this to a Fenix 6x Pro, once it’s been installed?

Works great. I used to be super into running averaging 15-20 miles per week. I got a few injuries (not running related) and a couple surgeries in the past 2 years so I haven't been able to run in quite a while. I've been using this for about 2 weeks now to get myself back into running shape and it has worked very well to keep me progressing at a slow yet productive rate to avoid injuring myself. Not sure if it would be possible or not, but is there a way you could add an audible notification to play through connected headphones when switching between running and walking? Thanks!

Absolutely this program.. It is so hard to believe week 5 and I’m actually running after over 30 years.. So easy to install and follow

22. November 2021 | Version 1.0.5

Only a few little things keep me from giving this a 5 star, it's an excellent data field. Is there a way to edit the font size of the timer? It's so small that it's hard to read while running. If there is a way to edit that this would absolutely be a 5 star data field.

Does exactly what I want it to do. The only request might be to have an interval counter that tells you X/Y interval so you know how many intervals are left but otherwise it performs exceptionally well!

I love this data field. Moved to a forerunner 945 LTE and it is no longer available. I wish it was compatible.

13. September 2021 | Version 1.0.5

can some one show how to get this on my 945. i for the life of me can not find the data field/app to get it to work. i shows downloaded but i don't see it on my watch. thanks

I love this app! Having successfully completed C25K years ago I really disliked carrying my phone and listening for prompts. This go around I was happy to find this app as a data field and the vibration cues work great for me. Happy user and plan on donating since I like it so much.

4. September 2021 | Version 1.0.5

Just started using this, and for a simple watch based couch 2 5k it just works. Recommend if you just want simple progression based intervals I really want a 2 day per week variant, but Garmin don't do one either.

I LOVE this app! The fact I don't have to have my phone or headphones on is so liberating. I've recently bought an EdgeGear watch strap so I can see my watch on my hand and it makes it all soooo easy to just enjoy getting back into running after injury. Thank you! I've set my first data field to C25K, and yesterday I set my second to my Stryd, but since I've done this I've lost the walk/run visual prompts on the watch. Is there any way to adjust the settings so they show, or is it a conflict with the 2 data fields? Thanks for any help in advance! Kate

Has potential, but as a first time user it was a bit aggravating. Is there a way to have the timer labeled "jog" and "walk" during the countdown? It took me forever to figure out the 5min countdown was a warm up. Maybe label warm up and cool down as well. As hard as it was to install this thing, it could stand to be a little more user friendly.

28. Juli 2021 | Version 1.0.5

Great app!! Or should I say data field…? I’m new to garmin so I had to play with the watch to follow the creators instructions to use this but it’s worked beautifully since. I am NOT a natural runner but have really enjoyed the simplicity of this guidance as I painfully put each foot forward. Thank you for sharing your creation with us!

Really good after working out how to add it to my watch (forerunner245) here is a quick guide which might help out others: After installing, copy activity (run) then rename it on the watch to whatever, I did C25K. Then select the new activity (C25K) on the watch to use it. Arrow up to Options (^Options) > C25K Settings > Data Screens > scroll down > +Add New > Custom Data > Field 1 '000' > ConnectIQ Fields > Couch To 5k. Thereafter it should be fairly easy to continue to use.

Thank you for making this! Worked so well for me on the Venu, just completed week 9 and it’s been so useful in keeping track of all the intervals
