Race Screen


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...

Is there a way to change the length of the race from meters to miles?

Meters are only used to specify the target distance in the App settings. The watch will then display this distance in whatever distance unit is set in your watch. So if you are running a half-marathon, set the target distance to 21098 meters in the App settings. Then, if your device's distance unit is set to miles, it will display 13.1 miles.

How do I change the target pace and distance to 8:45 and half marathon?

January 27, 2018 | Version 1.4.2

Impossible to install on my Fenix 3. Ask me an update, can't do I have the latest version. What did I do wrong ?

January 24, 2018 | Version 1.4.2

Wont install on my brand new Fenix5. GarminExpress also tells me version of fenix is up to date

I use vivoactive 3 and I download it. The interface is good and suitable for me. However, the background is unable to turn to black even I change it in the settings. Please fix it.

понравилось, спасибо. Но информации очень много(вроде и все важно), но глаза при взгляде блуждают по часам секунды 3. Может дело привычки. Может темп выделить красным для более быстрого считывания???

Love the data field but it drains the battery way too fast. My watch went from 49% to 0 in 10k. If i use the default Garmin data fields, 10k would drain about 10%. I am not sure why it eats away at the battery life so quick.

Used this field for my last marathon - works perfectly and helped me set a massive new PB. Changing color if you are ahead or behind desired pace, and finish time based on current pace are killer features

It does a great job, being my one and only data page for every workout except intervals. Anyway, today I ran my first workout using the new running power data from Garmin (935 + Running Pod) and it would be super to have it in Race Screen (making it configurable instead of cadence). Thanks for all.

Hi Developer, You did a fantastic job of creating this single data field - very useful. I have not tried it in a race situation but use it on all my especially the long and tempo runs

Ho utilizzato il Race Stern qualche giorno fa nel corso della maratona di Firenze. Devo dire che si e' comportato perfettamente. Non ha sbagliato di una virgola ed avevo sempre presente il tempo previsto di arrivo. Ottimo

Much, much more useful since you updated the program and enabled the average pace to be used as a basis for the predicted time, instead of the instant pace. The app now has everything I need. Well, almost everything. It would be fantastic if you replaced the cadence measurement with a lap pace measurement. Question: what happens if you leave the automatic lap alert from the regular watch set on 1 mile per lap, automatically. Does this distort the app’s very useful manual lap correction function (which you can use to correct things if the distance is slightly too much or too little when you come to a mile marker? I’m asking because it would be nice at the end of a raise to have every automatic mile split available laps in case I forget to press the manual that button once in a while.

Hi, with new Garmin Connect Apps in IPhone , I am looking for how to change settings for Race Screen Field. Could you help and explain in détails please ? /pascal

Hello, I have some observations/questions : - on Garmin 935 i select black background so it is black at the beginning but when i start an activity it turns white. - about the option "default is to assume you keep your current pace until the end", what does it change if i don't select it? - why should we set "Auto-Lap" to off? - with a target time, the background changes color when you are behind target, so it changed from black to white or from white to black? What do you mean? Thanks!

November 12, 2017 | Version 1.4.0

Perfect, works fine. Could you add an option to have timer to the lower-left corner even if I don't specify a race distance different from 0 ?

Looks good and has all the info that are important to me but when I tried it for the first time it added 1km over the real distance after about 1.5k which is not acceptable. The total distance and avg pace were useless after that (data fields on other screens were not affected so I think this is really a bug a this field - I have a VivoActive3)

It looks very cool! I've downloaded it but I'm not able to install on my device? Someone could help me? Thanks!

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.

Brilliant. Everything you need and nothing you don't to Pace your race. I tried a few of this type of app and this is hands down the best by a long way.
