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>

I downloaded it, but I can’t access it from my watch.

I just installed this but it is not appearing in my Forerunner 245 Music. What should I do. Thanks

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.

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

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.

Really nice data fields.

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.

I have the same problem as ine of the earlier reviewers. When I input the distance in meters and time in seconds for some reason the datafields disappear and I see “IQ!” on the screen. When I try to ‘reset’ the settings, the problem still exists. Any advice?

Great app but still struggling to get the predicted time up. If I input the distance in meters snd time in seconds for some reason the datafields disappear and I see “IQ!” on the screen. Any advice?

I like this application, specially since all the data can be read perfectly. Just one fault, I would Iike to see the pace and time of the current lap.

Awesome app! Really useful when trying to achieve a goal time in a race, especially in races with many tunnels or tall buildings, like the Chicago Marathon.

The best race screen! For people who can't find it on their watch, read the description..

Exactly what I want. Time. HR, Distance and AVG pace but it won't show on my forerunner 235 menu. It shows in connect IQ but isn't a choice on my watch.

Andrea Petteruti

To use Race Screen, configure a data screen in an App on your device (e.g. the built-in Run app) with 1 Field as the layout, in Field 1 select Connect IQ Fields, and select Race Screen. The field displays distance based on the unit (km/mile) set for distance in your device's settings and recent and average pace based on the unit set for pace. These can be different, so that you can match the distance unit to your race's course markers and keep a different pace unit if you wish. As a precaution, configure additional screens on your device to display information relevant for your race, and try Race Screen while training before using it during a race.

I've found Race Screen really useful on my training runs. It is a well thought out design, with all the information I could ask for during a race. The customisation options help get even more out of an already excellent screen! Definitely recommend.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
