What’s New

IMPORTANT: I have received some reports (thanks!) since October '21 that some users had trouble with this - from recent reports, it seems that data is visible in Garmin Connect but no longer in Training Peaks, independent of the app settings. Unluckily I haven't had the time to check this in details, but as there have been no changes on my side, my best guess at this moment is that Training Peaks changed how they handle custom data fields. I am deeply sorry that I have been very busy during the last months and unable to check in detail - I will look into this once I find time. Please be patient, appreciate that someone is working on this for free and don't flood with negative reviews... if you have time, please click the Contact Developer link and let me know if this works for you at this moment or not. Sorry if you messaged me and I have been too busy yet to respond - I do read all messages and am grateful as they help me understand the situation.</p>

Worked first time. Amazing effort put into this to make it work so easily and smoothly.

January 11, 2023 | Version 0.7.5

Amazing, thank you so much!!

December 21, 2022 | Version 0.7.5

It's a pretty impressive app. Scans and connects to my power meter quickly. Shows power and cadence. Although I'm not sure of it's usefulness if the power isn't showing in Training Peaks anymore. Any updates on this? Heck I'd even be willing to help figure it out if needed.

I use the app on my Edge 530 & 1030 and it works file. I have just installed on my Edge 1040 and the Settings button isn't visible and as a result I can't configure. Uninstall/reinstall hasn't made any difference.

Sorry for the trouble. Just checked my code and fixed a bug but don't have a 1040 to check. If it's still not working, please use "Contact Developer" if you have the time to interact with me as I might need more information from actual users.

September 8, 2022 | Version 0.7.4

Thank you very much for making this available. It's very nice to record both my usual crank arm based powermeter and the power data from my smart trainer when cycling indoors.

November 14, 2021 | Version 0.7.3

This is one if that programs that you need if you have PM and no PM compatibile garmin. Or if you have one but want to compare two diffirent PMs on PM enabled garmin. Good job!

November 14, 2021 | Version 0.7.3

irreplaceable program. six stars :)

Jamie Cook
August 30, 2021 | Version 0.7.3

Works great! Only problem I have is that my power is coming through in a field called "power2" which is confusing training peaks. I've fiddled with the watch faces and now it's "power3" anyone got any ideas

August 15, 2021 | Version 0.7.3

Works fine on Oregon 7xx with Stages Gen. 2+3. The new average data fields in v0.7.x are also great. This is exactly what was missing.

April 12, 2021 | Version 0.6

Great field! I had despaired of being able to record power on my Vivoactive HR until I discovered it. It works great on the ride albeit with a bit of a lag, possibly due to some smoothing I'm not aware of, which would be a pity because my PM automatically applies a 3 second smoothing to its output. Unfortunately, the data doesn't make it to Strava although everything else does. I know some people do see it on Strava and some don't. It's apparently a hit and miss affair, which is the only reason I deducted one star.

Vector 3 disconnects in ANT+ mode

March 28, 2021 | Version 0.6

The app does what it says. Works perfectly on my Forerunner 245. You can later get the average, normalized and max power in TrainingPeaks (free account). The only downside is that I cannot find a way to get the data to Strava but that's not the app's fault.

February 24, 2021 | Version 0.6

Very useful data fields that work smoothly and simply. He has a 2nd data field too so you could have one power meter DF in bike mode on your FR235 and then a different power meter DF on your indoor bike trainer (not FE-C) in indoor bike mode. I used them for the Vasa swim trainer on a more advanced garmin watch that didn't allow a power meter in swimmode...simple ...add this data field instead !

Andrii Kryvko
February 23, 2021 | Version 0.6

Works great with FR 250 Music!

February 21, 2021 | Version 0.6

Thank you! First time I tried to use I couldn't get it to connect to my 4iiii power meter. Just tried again today and everything worked perfectly. Power and cadence detected straight away during ride and automatically added to Strava and Garmin connect. Just what I was after.

Ben Cotsifas
January 12, 2021 | Version 0.6

Thank you very much! App works very good. The only issue I have encountered is the power data is not uploading to Training peaks. Is there any way to get the file to transfer over? Thanks!

December 20, 2020 | Version 0.6

You Sir are truly awesome :) Works great and i never had a problem.

November 1, 2020 | Version 0.6

This datafield is great! Congratulation, you have great coding skills! It works flawlessly with my vivoactive 4 and Favero Assioma pedals. The only thing missing, in my opinion, for it to be perfect is the AVG and MAX power. I saw on another datafield (powerbikefield 4) that it is possible to add extra IQ calculations that appears in the stats in Garmin Connect. Maybe it would also be possible to add it to this datafield? Anyway, thanks for this amazing work!

Great app if you have a device that doesn’t support native power (like a lower Forerunner series watch). Does the best with what Garmin allows it to access. I wish they’d recognize the ConnectIQ data as actually important and do some analysis of it in Connect but at the very least I can now see my power while I ride on my watch.

September 21, 2020 | Version 0.6

This is great. Thank you for this. I have it linked between the Watt Bike at the gym and my Garmin 245. I am able to add the Watt Bike as a Speed and Cadence Sensor. This now allows me to see a plot of my power post workout. The only left that I cannot figure out is how to determine my average power (easily). Any suggestions?

Bram Bontje
September 13, 2020 | Version 0.6

Excellent as a way to get real-time power from my 4iiii crank arm PM to my VA4 while riding. Thank you for creating this - as others have said it would have been a shame to have spent so much $$$ on ANT+ compatible hardware that could not communicate and this fills in a critical gap for many. This will save me dropping more money on an Edge head unit for a while. Graph overlays in Garmin are excellent too. Is there any way to extract the raw power data as a table? Garmin connect shows instantaneous power only, but being able to drag and average over a segment (like the native fields allow) would be helpful. Even being able to do this in Excel would would be great.

I am using on my Garmin Venu with Favero Assiamo pedals. Thank you so much for making this. I was so pissed that I couldn't connect my $500+ pedals to my $300+ watch when they both pretend to support ant+ and BT. Power and cadence can be plotted in Garmin connect over heart rate exactly how Garmin should have it from the factory.

July 14, 2020 | Version 0.6

This is fantastic, works great with garmin forerunner 245m and 4iiii power meter (podium rechargeable). I also had it linked to Zwift at the same time.

John Buchanan
July 9, 2020 | Version 0.6

Thanks for this app! It was just what I was looking for. I was considering getting another watch which is considerably more$$ just to get pwr meter data recorded. The graph is consistent with my lezyne head unit. App is on vivoactine 3.

Jacob Lambert
July 7, 2020 | Version 0.6

This worked one time wonderfully and now anytime I go to use it, it just says “Power(scan) paused. Can someone help? This is for a vivioactive4

Developer Reply

Dear Jacob, what you observe is intended correct behavior of the current version as the app behavior was changed to limit battery consumption on some devices. It's explained in the app descriptions which I have now edited to make this more noticeable. You can manually restart search or change the app settings to deactivate pausing. Hope this gets you further, please message me if you are still stuck. I don't know what you experienced with other developers, but my view is that contacting the developer is the most reliable way to have questions answered and solve issues. Cheers!
