I was interested to try this data field but when I installed it on my watch - my elevation and barometer data went all screwy. I uninstalled, factory reset and tried again - same thing...

It's OK, not more than that, in my opinion. A missed opportunity is that power data isn't available for the custom datafields in the IQ app store. With the Stryd footpod, the triathlon watches can connect to the footpod also as a power meter. That enables other datafields to display power as well. If one uses a custom datafield with 7 metrics (like Datarun plus for example), power should be on it. Garmin doesn't facilitate this and one has to revert to 4 metrics or browse to screen number 2 and back all the time. Even better would have been if running power would have been a native metric in the Garmin watches....

Really great app. Well designed and executed. The analysis in garmin Conenct could be improved. A great place to lern more about how to use POWER data in running can be found at

It's interesting to see power but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with the data? Would be nice if the Connect mobile app would show average and maximum power for each run instead of just a chart.

Hello! Thanks for the good work! Appreciate to use power data for run. A bit surprised with the different data I got (compare with cycling power) but I like it! Works fine.

How should we understand this data?
