If you are following the 80-20 training methodology this app is a great help and better than the native Garmin screens.
I really like the fact you can see two metrics on the same screen (I use HR and Pace). Having an optional buzz when you transition from a zone can help you stop from straying too fast or slow in your training.
The developer responded to my query very quickly, which was much appreciated.

Feature request: Please enable to use this data screen with Stryd as a stand alone daya screen (without necessarily having to enable Stryd connect iq app). In the current usage (80/20 + stryd iq) all the connect iq slots are used up and I would very much appreciate to have one slot free for another connect iq app. Thank you for all the good work you do.

Hello. There is no need to use Stryd app. (There never was!?). Just bind your Stryd as foot pod and power meter and then you're good to go.
March 6, 2021 | Version 2.0.0
Downloaded and started using a couple weeks ago, and think we be great for keeping me at the right pace (love the Bike app on my trainer) but wondering if I'm missing a setting somewhere (Fenix 5). On my last interval run, the pace that was showing between a hard zone 3 run and a zone 1 run (almost walking) and back again was almost nothing, and seemed like an average over the entire run time. Tried an experiment and came to a complete stop and the pace showing on my watch did not change for 30 seconds, and then only by a second or two.

The 80/20 app directly use the speed value it gets from the watch. So when speed/pace is not shown correctly, your watch does not serve the correct value! Using GPS for pacing is the most inaccurate way to go. Especially when using an old and outdated watch. Fenix 5 is well known for having very bad GPS measurement. Fenix 5+ or F6 are better but still not perfect. I'd recommend to get yourself a food pod if you intend to train witch pacing and get the most accurate pacing. Personally I'm using the Stryd V3 which is not cheap but worth every penny.
When already using a foot pod, maybe your battery was empty or bluetooth/ANT+ connection was bad, so the watch stopped to send correct speed data to the app.

App works well. However, since I downloaded the training peaks plan the heart rate gauge no longer shows the 80/20 zones and instead shows easy, aerobic, etc... is this a change in the app I need to make or a change somewhere else? I like the gauge because I can easily see it while running. Also, is it possible to give the zone alert based upon 80/20 zones vs the standard heart rate zones?
February 17, 2021, EHO-Systems
Hello, the 80/20 data field has nothing to do with training peaks integration. Check you activity settings maybe you've moved or deleted the 80/20 screen.
February 13, 2021 | Version 2.0.0
Thank you for your application.
I am trying to connect my stryd to the app but I have no data coming into the data field while my other stryd data field is working fine.
Is it not possible to connect the stryd with the antID?
February 15, 2021, EHO-Systems
Hello, you must bind Stryd as power meter sensor otherwise it will not work! When your watch does not allow to bind a (bike) power meter you can't use my app with power data, sorry.
January 22, 2021 | Version 2.0.0
Thanks should go to you again and again for implementing so many user requests and ideas.
January 21, 2021 | Version 2.0.0
Thanks for the app! Works great and makes it easier to follow the workouts.
I don’t know if this is a bug or my setup but my HR stopped reading when I pressed “Start/Stop” button. I had to press “Stop” at traffic light and pressed “Start” but it kept on showing “No data”. But when I went to Garmin screen it showed HR but nothing on 80/20 app. I used chest strap for HR and Garmin D2 Delta.
January 21, 2021, EHO-Systems
Hello, no, it's not a bug, it's a feature! Please disable the option "Use start/stop to switch metrics". Otherwise the app will toggle between hr, pace and power each time you press Stop/Start.
January 10, 2021 | Version 2.0.0
That's amazing! Thank you very much for your quick update and having possibility to show 2 parameters on single screen!
December 31, 2020 | Version 1.8.3
Would be great to have possibility to show 2 zones in time. I mean I want to see both HR and Pace based zones. I need to install Run zones, put pace as an indicator and install HR zones field application to port it as second field on 2-fields screen as a workaround. It duplicate data in report.
I could install both HR an Pace zone simplified apps, but pace one is not adapted well for 2 field screen.
Can you please either update pace one or add this functionality here.
Thank you and Happy New Year!

Hi, thank you for your request. Dual screen was added with v2.0.0!
December 8, 2020 | Version 1.8.1
Nice datafield, it would be great if one can see time and percentages spent in zones also in the connect graph on smartphone in the last tab or at least if it is possible to see the percentages in the activity summary where "time low intensity" and "time high intensity" are showed. Thank you.
January 4, 2021, EHO-Systems
Hi. Thank you for your request. I will see how to solve this. Infortunately there are not much options to display data with the Garmin platform.
November 27, 2020 | Version 1.7.3
This is a great app. Would be good if you could easy swap between HR and Pace instead of App settings or if you have Pace selected you could see HR zone instead of the percentages in High/Low or vise versa
January 4, 2021, EHO-Systems
Hi, added with version 1.8.x! Now you can switch metrics during activity by briefly pressing "Stop/Start" once.
October 3, 2020 | Version 1.7.3
Very Good. But it would be great to add 30sec smoothness for easy or longer runs. Or hilly courses.
December 6, 2020, EHO-Systems
Hi, 30s averaged added with version 1.8.x!
September 29, 2020 | Version 1.7.3
Unsure as to the reasoning behind removing the lap time during a training session. Was very useful to know how far into a Zone 4 sprint you were!! Now I only have the split between high and low zones, which is easy to look at AFTER a run. Please undo this update, or at least give the user the option to have lap times if they choose to. Otherwise it is a brilliant app!!
September 29, 2020, EHO-Systems
Hello, thank you for your review. The cycling view between lap time and zone summary has been removed for a more transparent layout. Now the datafield only shows 80/20 zone summary. If needed, please simply add laptime as second datafield. I see no reason to display lap time directly inside the 80/20 datafield when there already exists a generic datafield. Putting lap time in the 80/20 datafield makes things much more complicated (more code, more app size, more error prone, less transparency). So I decided to remove it, as there was no real need to put it there. If you overlay the summary with lap time, you will still see the zone summary when activity is paused/finished!
August 21, 2020 | Version 1.7.3
Very powerful and much appreciated data field. Easily allows one to monitor, and thus apply, the 80/20 principles while on a run.
August 7, 2020 | Version 1.7.3
You reacted pretty fast, so did I.
Thanks for the reverse change.
August 4, 2020 | Version 1.7.2
From a user perspective it was a very bad decision to remove the low and high from activity screen. I think there is much less value in checking actual lap time during a 80/20 training than getting a constant feedback how much time/percentage you spent low and how much high.
It is evident that the purpose of a 80/20 training is not to control the lap times, but the times spent in different HR/pace/power zones.
Therefore it is not understandable for me at all why one cannot check the actual low and percentages.
As a sidenote: I switched off autopause, because any pause during an activity done with the purpose of training often distorts the real peak power (or pace or HR) data over different time spans. So I cannot check low and high at all.

Hello, fixed this with version 1.7.3 ...

Es un campo de datos excelente para mejorar los entrenamientos siguiendo las ideas de 80/20. Su uso es muy sencillo y los datos que aporta son muy útiles. Me resulta imprescindible.
July 5, 2020 | Version 1.6.3
Great for following 80/20 zones during a run and for reviewing in Garmin Connect afterwards. A nice addition would be do display a decimal place when using the data field on a screen with other fields (eg on a 4 field layout). Currently it will just read Z2 but I can’t tell where in zone 2 I am. If it said eg: Z2.9 then I would know I am at the top end of that zone.
June 20, 2020 | Version 1.6.3
was great but seems to have stopped working on my 935, screen no longer shows gauge or % in zones, doesn't vibrate as I move through zones, no graphs in the run data?
June 29, 2020, EHO-Systems
Hello. Why not contact me so we could find out together why it is not working?! I must say, I don't see any issues with my app at this point, so there must be s.th. wrong on your side...
June 14, 2020 | Version 1.6.3
It's nice to have instant feedback during running and this part of the app works very well. (*****)
Nevertheless, the intensity minutes calculations have a bug. Often times they are not not summed up and displayed in garmin connect. Also there's an additional bug with the calculation itself:
Although, the tracking of the HRZ during a 3h low intensity run worked, and the graphs are shown in garmin connect, the app calculated 45 min in low and 6 min in high intensity - what happened to the 129 remaining minutes?

Great app for running...
One doubt from my side... Where can I switch between imperial and metrical pace in the settings? Thanks
May 30, 2020, EHO-Systems
Hello, switching units is done in the system settings. Open the options menu of the watch. Choose "Settings" - "System" - "Units". Change "Pace/Speed" here to kilometres or miles.
May 24, 2020 | Version 1.6.1
This is a truly great app to have if you follow 80/20 and want to see zones easily using 80/20 7 zone system. Like others, I’d love to see a way to have Hrm and Pace zones on 1 screen. The either or method is the only draw back.
It installed easily, setup is clear and it performs exactly how it should. Can’t ask for more! I look forward to future enhancements.
May 13, 2020 | Version 1.5.0
Although I dont care about avoiding ZX and ZY zones, this data field is a fantastic tool to see which zone I am in. A development idea: what if one could see his present pace and HR at the same time, and while the actual pace zone would be depicted as the upper arc, then the actual HR zone would be drawn as the arc in the lower half? Or vice versa based on the users’ setting. Certainly this solution could work only in full screen mode, and not half screen, and I guess without showing low and high percentages. Or maybe with them too, but in this case low% should be put left to pace and HR, and high% should be put right to them. In this last case there would be 8 precious data on the screen: 2 arcs, 2 low%, 2 high%, actual pace and actual HR. Moreover upper and lower half could be coloured differently based on the actual zones. And finally any 2 of pace, HR and power could be chosen. So it is my idea! :-) Keep going...
February 12, 2020 | Version 1.1.3
Great for training, only really works as a full screen data field though. Hopefully the devs will make the less than full screen data fields more useful later on (just displays Z1, Z2, etc... could display the range in half mode at least)
March 2, 2020, EHO-Systems
Hi, thank you for the request. Half mode will be added with the next update!
February 11, 2020 | Version 1.1.3
Brilliant!! Just what I needed!!
