Good power meter! Please fix the scaling issue on the Fenix 6s Pro! Would be cool to see zones also in multi field data fields like you did for the HR as well as running efficiency fields. Thank you and keep up the good work!

Fields display something that looks OK (I deactivated the "usage" of the wind). The field doesn't center vertically on 4 and 5 data layouts. Don't compare values to Stryd like absolute values, use them as relatives.

Just adding to the list. Screwed up display on a 6s. Why is Garmin not fixing this? It has been months.

Doesn’t work at all on Fenix 5X

The power estimates are completely bonkers. My Stryd shows power that is 100W or so lower! And I know that the Stryd number is more accurate, because my run FTP, as estimated by Stryd is much closer to my cycling FTP, measured with a different power meter (obviously).

The data is well captured by the device, however, after that it’s basically ignored by the whole Garmin analysis, reports, comparisons to paces, HR, over time, it’s kinda of just collecting data without no reason. It does not give you an idea of FTP. Also, it does not transfer to Strava either. Garmin, those are easy fix in SW, the device is great. Thanks

Cool function. Fields do not scale correctly on Felix 6 though. In a 4-field setup you only see half of the numbers which looks kind of ugly...

Doesn’t scale correctly on screens with more than 5 data fields - the ‘power’ title font does not scale, is too big for the cell, and value gets cut off as a result.

It doesn't work on my Garmin Fenix 5X. It shows 0, ZERO. Maybe I'm sweating without do anything?

with new view of garmin connect app from phone, with scheduled workout with repeated interval training, doesn't show the column with lap power value. Ok instead when i connect to Garmin connect server, i can see normally the column with power values

Davvero un parametro interessante! Ha cambiato il mio modo di allenarmi sulle ripetute!!! Ottima con Fenix 5plus!!

Power seems to be way too high compared to cycling power. A 4.47min/km (HR zone2) easy run gave me an average power of 319W, for the bike this would be 180-200W for a similar heart rate.

Works smoothly with my FR945 and pod. Very consistent measure.

Gorgeous on Fenix5! Thx

Very useful but can't be used on screen with multi datafields. The power value is truncated at the bottom.

Useful training data field. No issues with this for me on my FR945. The data field updates real-time whilst using in conjunction with the Running Dynamics pod. Syncs with Garmin Connect, all good. Shame about all the negative reviews.

Works perfectly fine with my fenix 5x and pod, and the app is free, so why complain?

les puissances sont bien trop elevées. Powers are too much high. useless and screw my stats whit training peaks .... stuff : fr935 + hrm4

I'm curious as to the negative reviews on this, I surmise that some aren't using the required equipment (need a Pod or Strap to get the Power data in the field, watch alone won't work). It works beautifully for me. I can drop the power data into any data field no matter how many are on the screen. I have a screen with Power, Heart Rate, Pace, and Lap time remaining. I can use a combination of these to ensure I hit the right speed and HR.

Needs to support other power pods (e.g. - Stryd)

Please make it possible to run on multi field screen. Now I don't see the wattage

I use power meter on my bike and the values are not the same but it is consistent. I am able to use it effectively to control heart rate. I use the HRM Tri and I wonder what a pod on my shoe would say

Dragos

I used with Fenix 5xPlus and it was useful. I installed on 6x Pro and even the app appear in data fields on Garmin connect, nothing on watch, like it is not installed. I used with dinamic pod. Could have some advice? Thank you.

Johan Liebenberg

On Fenix 6 with 5 or 6 data field display, the power is not fully visible as it gets cut off. The word "Power" is too big and you can only see half of the power reading. A suggestion would be to make this adapt like the other standard data fields.

Works well on the watch and data is also available in Garmin Connect. Good job!

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
