Hi Bal, if you set up an account on our app V.O2 you can sync workouts to Garmin Connect to get real-time guidance on your watch. This will work with any device. We built the IQ app before Garmin allowed us to sync directly to Garmin Connect.

Love it. I loved it when it was a platform for a VDOT coach to guide me through London Marathon Training, and love it just as much on my own when planning workouts. I think what I like best is that it keeps track of sets / reps and prescribed speed. I can never remember what set or rep I'm on once I'm deep into a track workout, so it really helps keep me honest.

I think that app is great but I can’t launch workouts from Fenix 5x plus.

Hi Dmitry, sorry for the inconvenience. Can you email us at [email protected] so we can help troubleshoot and resolve quickly for you? There is a bug related to 945 devices due to the latest Garmin firmware update. Garmin is hoping to have that resolved soon.

Spoke with support. Issue resolved by using the calendar sync instead of the VDOT app. Determined to be a firmware issue with 245/945 on Garmin’s side. Great support staff.

This app keeps me on track with my runsmart workouts! Having the workouts (including pace) sync with my watch has not only saved me time from having to manually input the workouts, but it has also helped to improve my workouts by keeping me on pace. The app was easy to download and access from my watch. It automatically updates with each day/workout. I have a Garmin Forerunner 735 and am familiar with using Garmin Connect from both my Mac and iPhone.

I highly recommend the VDOT/RunSmart program as a whole, and having this app on my Garmin while doing interval workouts on un-coached days, flying solo, makes it much easier to focus on my workout.

July 12, 2019 | Version 1.5

Great syncing capability for the customized workouts provided by the VDOT02 program. With the additional stressors of everyday life - work, housekeeping, cooking, etc. - it is difficult to fit in customizing workouts. The synchronization of the app. makes it feel as if the coach you're working with is with you. Additionally, it provides flexibility to fit the workout into your schedule and virtually carry your coach with you. Highly recommend the full program.

Takes lots of pain out of planning a session. Just two minor things I would like - ability to copy a session in calendat to new day. Now I have allways set sections of the run in the website provided while quite often workout is going same as some session last week or so. - Truli minor thing is. After last interval there is recovery part even if the next leg is cooldown. Not really an issue just feelt superfluos But overall great tool work injecting workout plan into wathch wirh reasonable effort

After years of staring at my watch through workouts obsessing about pace, distance and time this app seems to just let me focus on my effort and nudge me with what I’m supposed to be running during that set. Flawlessly synced with my vdot02 calendar the workouts are downloaded to my more need for a distance calculated track and cones! Big applause for the folks at VDOT and their development team!!

Extremely good app - it's my preferred platform for structured workouts. It's much easier to use than Garmin's or TrainingPeaks, and loads the workouts to your watch MUCH faster than TrainingPeaks' integration. Additionally, the developer is very responsive and quickly updated the app to support the new range of Forerunner watches including the 945. Highly recommended.

Hello, thanks for your feedback. This issue is related to Garmin Connect, not our IQ app. Please make sure you're using the latest version of Garmin Connect on your mobile app and this should be resolved now.

No offense to Garmin, but managing/building workouts through the VDOT website/app is so much nice than using connect. Love this.

As other have said, a perfect companion to Now I no longer have to manually re-create/copy my workouts from the VDOT O2 calendar to Gamin Connect. Well done!

February 19, 2019 | Version 1.4

I had no trouble adding to my watch and then downloading my workout. It quickly synced and I was ready to go! I really like that the watch keeps track of the number of reps that I'm on and will alert me when I'm at the correct pace. It's nice to just focus on the work I need to do and not the numbers (number of reps, desired pace range, rest periods, etc). Highly recommend!
