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>

What’s New

- Now with option to set a lap length different from 1km or 1 mile</p><p>- Now with option to predict race finish time assuming the average pace so far is kept until the end (default is instead to assume the current pace is kept until the end)</p><p></p><p>See https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/12/pacing-races-garmin.html for a detailed review by DC Rainmaker</p><p></p><p>IMPORTANT NOTE: The distance displayed by this data field may differ from the built-in distance field. This is by design, to help the user correct the difference between the GPS-measured distance and the official course distance when running a race by triggering a manual lap when passing an official course marker. If you wish to use this field only as a way to display information nicely in a single screen, you can switch off the distance/average pace adjustment and set the race distance and target time to 0 in the app settings.</p>

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.

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.

I have a FR235 - Love this race screen, however I have noticed that sometimes the default screen comes up when starting an activity (run). I think this is more of a Garmin issue than app issue, curious if there are theories on why this is happening.

I downloaded this application which appears on garmin connect. I can then manage the different parameters. But once synchronized, on the watch, I can not find this application ?! Can you help me, please? laurent

Really enjoyed this so far on practice runs. Paired it with a second data screen that displays list of laps. One question: is there a way to make the data field black writing on white rather than the other way round? Tried toggling the black as default background but doesn't seem to do anything on my FR235

Hello. It's a fantastic data field. I would just like to be able to display the "percentage of my maximum heart rate" instead of "heart rate" and that would be perfect. Cordially.

Great data field! I love the predicted time but I'd like to keep average pace in big centered numbers since I don't need timer. Would it be possible? Thanks

I use it on my Forunner 235 since 1 year and I love it but today I have updated it and now I cannot save info, sync with my mobile and open it properly on my Garmin. Please help me!

There is currently a bug in the Garmin Connect App (not specific Race Screen) that is preventing many users from changing settings in the Garmin Connect App. Garmin say they are working on fixing this issue. Hopefully, they will do so soon. Unfortunately, this is completely outside of my control.

I have a Fenix 5 Plus and cannot get this on here. I've used comments below and not working. Frustrated!! There has to be an easier way!

I use it as the main screen for my runs. I would also love to have a trail running version of it, containing alro ascent/descent info. The only think that I don't like so much is the shade of green used in cadence and hr: with white background, it's too light and thus a bit hard do read. A darker shade of green would be perfect.

Nice data field but everytime my watch does an update I have to uninstall and re-install the data field to make it work again. Please fix this bug.

Downloaded it on my FR 235 and sync couple of times. Then I went to Run - Menu - Activity Settings - Data Screens All I could see are the default ones only, not this one which I had downloaded. How to make it work?

I like this datafield. I think it is a verry good work and it is the base for more. Please test this datafield. For every runner it should be a perfect help to find the right time.

Great datafield! Congratulations! A question: is there a way to configure %HR max instead HR value in the HR fieal? Regards,

Race Screen is not an App but a Data Field. 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. You first install Race Screen on your watch using Garmin Express or Garmin Express Mobile. Then go to Settings, Apps, Run, Data Screens. Scroll down the list of Screens and until you reach one that is Off, toggle to On. Scroll down to Layout, if it is set to something else change 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.

Hello, thanks for developing this. If I'd like the background color to change colors when my pace is behind, do I leave the "set black as default background" on, or turn it off? I wasn't quite what the language meant. Thanks in advance.
