My favorite! Thank you very much! Would be GREAT to have the same for heart rate.

Pros: It's a simple and really useful pacing tool. Cons: After personalising the default settings the app locked and I couldn't go back to default; ie - I changed to 10s power and it got stuck on 10s power even though the settings showed 3s power. I changed the text color from white to black, then it got stuck on black even though the setting showed white. Could not adjust my FTP either as it got stuck on a previous value. App would not uninstall, had to go into the 520 file system and delete the two app files individually. It's now back to default, I've only changed the FTP value .. hope it works this time.

This does exactly what I was looking for: a simple visual key to tell you what zone you're in at a glance. Please create exactly the same for Heart Rate please?! :-) Thanks

Almost perfect. Thank you so much for making this. The only feature i wish it had was the ability to rename the zones because my training plan (80/20 running) has 7 zones but they are called Z1, 2, X, 3, Y, 4, 5, so its confusing to map the names to numbers 1-7 in the data field. Otherwise it's 5/5 perfect and fixes the issue i had with my stryd power meter pefectly!

Outstanding. Have been using my FTP based power zones but am now trying it with zone settings that match the Best Bike Splits "cheat sheet" for an upcoming 200 mile race. About a dozen rides like this so far - really like the versatility. I run it in 10 sec average with a 3sec power, grade, HR, IF and speed data fields beneath it. I like this better than the BBS IQ app (192 segments for my upcoming race) because it allows easy implementation of the much simpler BBS cheat sheets. Based on the rides I've done so far, this app will help me pace a nearly perfect race.

Works super well on my Edge 1030! It is my only power data field on the main screen.

Good data field. Please add the option for 9 zones and also a power slider for HR zones.

Best Data Field to use on your wattage focused training sessions of races. Will make you hold your pace on climbs to avoid exploding your legs. Some issues with older versions required restarting the watch every once in a while or after some updates. Definetively worth it.

I can't set up the avg time for the power, on my edge 1030

Use the Garmin Mobile app on your phone to modify the settings for the app. This is accessed through the settings menu in the app and then /Garmin Devices/Edge 1030/Connect IQ Apps/Data Fields/PowerSlider/Settings. Make sure your device is connected to the phone app and remember to press the Save button at the bottom.

I've been using this app on a Fenix 3, its a shame its not compatible with my new 935 :(

Just released an update for the Edge 1030 and FR 935.

It simply and beautifully does what it advertises. Become indispensable for my running with Stryd.

The app no longer works on my 820, it is lacking a field for zone 1, and computes %ftp wrong so it wont let me input correct values into the other fields.

Real great data field. My main power view while riding. Liked the old colortheme better. Could you make it a configuration choice to use old og Zwift colors?

Works well on my Edge 1000. I find the small zone number useless because of the zone colors. It makes the display a bit harder to read. Zones can be pretty narrow if you configure a low FTP like 100W.

This is awesome! Tried it today. Pretty much exactly what I was looking for. Maybe you cloud find a way to add a second, longer average on the bottom where the black "needle" is. Like this, you replace yet another data field.

There is no download for V1.2, where the color of digits and power averaging period can be changed!

Tested the app today. Nice idea, works fine. In kombination with another app useful during power based training. There is only one problem: The power digits in black are not readable in dark green or red backgrounds! As far as I'm concerned WHITE digits would solve this problem! If changed this my rating will be 5*

Please check out version 1.2 where the text color can be configured.

simple, works great and well implemented. The lines and text for every 50W on the background scale is difficult to read on the Edge 520. The red on the last high end of the scale is very dark and makes the black text difficult to read (but who is looking at a power scale when in the deep red...)

Version 1.2 allows text to be selected as Black or White. White text is more readable for those spending time in the red zones :-)

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
