Fenix 3 HR, only value 0 shown

Shit shit shit doesn't work

Lenny Fox

unable to set the HR zone in garmin express. Always asking me to put value under zero. What is the point of this app and zero support.

René

Same here (Fenix 5 Plus), see no score. Please fix it!

useless, don't waste your time installing it, shows 0 all the time (fenix 5 plus)

I assured that heart rate settings are the same in both apps... still just showing 0 the whole time during my workout!

Steve Hillman

That was a waste of time and effort.

Thomas Lopata

The relative effort score stays at zero during any activity.

On my Vivoactive 3 and Forerunner 235, the relative effort was similar to the number of kilometers I ran (e.g. 10 km at normal pace had a relative effort of 10). On my new Forerunner 945, I get very strange, high score (e.g. 10 km at normal pace has a relative effort of 40), while for cycling, the data field works the same as on my old watches. Is this a bug on the Forerunner 945?

I've just about given up with this. Checked and re-checked that the HR zones in Strava match the data field settings on the watch and still it reads 50% higher on the watch than the uploaded activity on Strava. Tried it from another angle and tweaked the HR zones on Strava slightly to match the ones Garmin calculates and RE on Strava is now about 1/3 of what it was. All this has done is made me realise the Strava RE figure is probably a load of rubbish.

Kind of useless. I think regular HR info is much more accurate than such figures which don't even match the ones you get on Strava once your activity is loaded.

It doesn't work on my Vivoactive 3 Music. I can see it in the watch screen, but it doesn't show any data. It's always with a zero.

Worked pretty good for me, often 10-20% off maybe (high). However I just now realized that in your desktop software "Garmin Express" you need to select "IQ Apps" to manage apps. Select the settings (three white circles in grey oval) for the Stra Relative App. In there is where you need to set your heart rate ranges/zones. I thought it was in your user settings... didn't match in my case! Should be automatic IMO. We'll see if the Score is a bit closer tonight! :-)

This link isn't working. My watch is synced with the phone and they still don't let me to download the app.

Mesmo após update em 2019 não funciona ( ou não estou sabendo configurar) os valores no 645 ficam mais que o dobro do site após subir a atividade. Uma pena pois seria um ótimo recurso de medida para os treinos.

Same values ​​in the web and in the application but it does not give the same results nor is it close. In the small field the STRAVA logo is well visible but the number is cut above. It is not useful with these errors.

Marcin

The value is not even near to what is calculated on the Strava page. HeartRateZones are identical

Won't install on fenix3hr

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
