Race Screen

Description

Race Screen is a data field that displays the most relevant information for running a race or training. It also corrects the difference between the GPS-measured distance and the actual race course distance: pressing the lap button when passing a course marker rounds the distance it displays and adjusts the average pace accordingly. If you set a race distance, it predicts your finish time.</p><p></p>

It seems not working on Fenix 6 Pro. Earlier everything was good but now I receive just the "IQ!" . How can I sole? I loved this app

Hello, the app is great ; Does it work if my watch does not display the correct screen (it is loaded in the activity settings but I have got a lot of different screens) but I press LAP ? Thanks

Wonderful data field ! Works like a charm and helped me to beat my record in my last race last weekend. The rounding distance and predicted race time helped to manage my pace during the race. Thanks !

Cadence in color still not working. Should show orange, shows white.

Cadence is not intended to be shown in orange. If the option "Display HR and cadence in color" is enabled in the settings, then cadence is shown in green when below 175, white when between 175 and 185, and red when above 185. For heart rate, there are user-defined zones, and Race Screen reads and uses those. For cadence, there are no user-defined zones, hence it uses fixed values and most of the time (between 175 and 185) it will show white.

Pace and average pace seem to be wrong compared to garmin screens.

Fantastic !!! it would be very nice to have the possibility to exclude one or more fields from the ones proposed by keeping only those of interest

Awesome stuff! Just one issue. Ran an ultra using prediction feature. The time I stood still pausing were subtracted, only moving time accounted for, resulting in false low predicted time. Any ideas?

Developer Reply

The prediction is based on the timer for the activity. If periods of pause will be counted towards the final time, then you should leave the timer running even when not moving and set auto-pause to off.

I downloaded on my vivoactive 3 music. It's not showing? All I see is 6 battery sign all over the screen.

Race Screen is not an App but a Data Field so it will not appear in the list of Apps on the watch. Instead, you need to display it as a field within another App, like the standard Run App. See my reply below or the Description for details on how to do this.

Race Screen is not an App but a Data Field so it will not appear in the list of Apps on the watch. Instead, you need to display it as a field within another App, like the standard Run App. Go into Settings of the Run App, then Data Screens. Scroll down the list of Screens and either edit one you wish to replace or add a new one. For Layout, set to 1 Field. Scroll down to Field 1, in ConnectIQ Fields select Race Screen. Garmin limits the number of Connect IQ data fields that you can display across all data screens to a maximum of 2, so you will only be able to select Race Screen if you are displaying at most 1 other ConnectIQ data field in all of the data screens.

Data field has stopped working on my vivoactive 3, it was working fine till few months back. I have uninstalled and installed many a times. Any help

Seems fine. I would though have preferred the HR digits to have been a different colour to red which is very difficult to see. Hence using the option that removes colours for HR and cadence.

It would be great if colored cadence and heart rate would be not color digits but color background with black digits (for white screen). On white screen it is extremely hard to read while running...

Fantastic app. Very useful when running races to know your exact pace and expected finishing time.

Marc Iwan

Great app! I had the following error another user experienced too: "It only allows a value of 0 for seconds used to calculate average pace. If one puts any other number in the app says "Must be between 0 and 0."" I had the error with Garmin Express version 6.15 (Mac). Surely I've been able to set a reasonable value about some months ago. So I grabbed a Garmin Express 6.13 from my Time Machine as I did not find a suitable download on garmin.com. With 6.13 I made it to set a value of 3!

Great data field!!! Works as intended, perfect for races!!! Use it for the last two years for each race longer than 5k. It is invaluable for marathons!!! If I were to suggest improvements, I would allow an option to turn off HR and cadence to make the screen more legible.

I love the idea but I am having a problem with the distance field . It is drifting badly from the regular garmin screen . For example it is1Km out in 7KM that I ran today . That means that the average pace and predicted are useless . I am using on a forerunner 235 . I assume this is not working as intended . Can anyone help fix the problem?

Exceptional! The only thing I have not understood is how to set the desired distance in order to get a prediction of time

John Hudson
June 23, 2019 | Version 1.4.7

Very well thought out. Great for training, but even better for race or just trying to nail a specific time with measured splits. Do read info and try out before you race with it: I was super confused before I realized how the app works. Colors on cadence and HR are key for people like me who have trouble with small type.

l'ho avuta sul 935 funzionava perfettamente,ma acquistato il 945 appena inserisci la distanza per preveder il tempo appare sullo schermo dell'orologio il simbolo iq con il punto esclamativo.Da revisionare subito perchè è un campo dati stupendo.Grazie

Does not work with FR 945. Loads fine. As soon as a setting is changed it crashes. Help? I placed this here because the contact the developer link does not work. Great screen, just no luck with FR 945

This has become my go-to screen, even for training. Outstanding.

Great app. One issue. It only allows a value of 0 for seconds used to calculate average pace. If one puts any other number in the app says "Must be between 0 and 0." Can't find any help on this issue. I am using the app on a Fenix3 HR and I connect with a Mac.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
