Did not work for my half marathon. Kept saying I was 2 miles off of where I actually was. For example, had me at 8 miles when I just past the race 6 mile marker. Will not be using again.

I have only used this app a few times on a runs and once at a half marathon, I will say it’s my favorite and it’s a HUGE help to see if I am above or below my expectations for my time. It was confusing to get it on my watch but after a rewatching a YouTube video, I figured it out. I definitely recommend to anyone for races!!

I have no idea how to get it on my watch, 645 music ? I’ve synced and downloaded and repeated the process but still have no joy?

Excellent App. Used it for my recent 10k race. The PP helps to change your pace to reach the desired goal time. Got a paid version of this App. PS - The alert function when running behind didnt work on my Fenix 5 :(. Also wish there was an option to change the rest of the fields.

1st run using "Peter's (Race) Pacer" and found that it was great to see all the stats showing up during the 1st km, but once I started to slow down past 6km/hr pace and the markers went red I could not see how much off the pace I was. I wear glasses for reading but not when I am running, so the red was too bright for me to read the digits. Dont know if they can chance the colours for those of us that just cannot see the digits over that red. Maybe a lighter red will do the trick?

Have you taken a look at my other project "Peter's (Hi Vis) Pacer"? It's a project made especially to have higher visibiliy. Cheers, Peter.

Excellent app. Does exactly what you need it too. Perfect tool for hitting your time targets with clear information screen. As long as you watch the video and read the settings carefully you shouldn’t have a problem. Peter definitely earns his donation.

Marvellous app, It’s been a constant companion on my last 10 marathons. Very accurate, I would be lost without it.

Fantastic Pacer App - Datafield - very supportive and definetely a must have for Garmin Running Devices. Enables you to stay on course. Much better than the new pace Pro Plan Option from Garmin. So highly recommended and many thanks to Peter for this great improvement.

Very nice app. I'm using it for training and it's does the job. The distance adjustment is very practical.

Diese App hat mir geholfen, bei meinem letzten 10km Lauf unter 50min zu bleiben. Kann ich nur jedem empfehlen, wenn man einen Wettkampf bestreitet.

I love this data field, it has really helped me with my pacing during both training and on race day.

With this data field I controlled my pace every time and got a new PB in Frankfurt with 2:47, thanks!

This app is amazing. I've used it twice and it has pace my races perfectly. This is exactly what the doctor ordered.

I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong, but whenever I try to set the data field layout to “Peter’s Pacer” a small battery-shaped icon appears instead of the format I programmed. Any thoughts?

Hi Peter, Maybe my mistake. Maybe I am missing the necessary information. Would you kindly give information for how to donate? Thanks in advance

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.
