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?

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

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.

Scam. You need to use HR monitor from Garmin, which is x5 times more expensive than a normal one...

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!

Really confusing. In Garmin Connect you can have power zones set based on FTP and a Lactate threshold test. On the mobile app it doesn't seem to sync the sheetings and the zones don't map.

Power gauge working well. Set alerts for zone 2 power range, and get sufficient high and low alerts. Alerts would be better if they could also vibrate (like other training alerts) so you know to look at your watch. Would also be better to integrate running power into normal training widget (like cycling power training) as a lot of training programs can now upload running workouts with power intervals.

The power graph drops to 0 for some seconds several times during all my treadmill activities since version 1.70 published on September 13, 2019. Before that it was ok indoor and outdoor.

Had to add custom field to running app on my Fenix 5 them I was able to see the chart. Interesting metric.

Doesn't work with forerunner 935....

Doesn't work in my 935. Garmins apps are pretty lame. Does Garmin care about customer? Flagship and apps lame and watch freezes when using maps...

Doesn’t show any power with my hrm-tri and a garmin 935. Please fix!

The power number is cut off as the “Power” header is to large in the data field.

Really like it, but weird formatting bugs on FR945 after firmware 3.90 update.

Useful consistent feedback on pace and effort, started liking this a lot considering the rather poor fenix5+ actual pace measures. Today it stopped showing any value though, but guess this is a bug that will be fixed soon.

Suggestions: 1) Bigger numbers in single mode field, so people with vision problems can read easier 2) Allow power data to be uploaded to Strava 3) Release a Garmin tutorial to set Power Zones (what test we should do to determine power zones)

Not working on Fenix 6X with Stryd. Please, we need native power integration from Stryd on all running modes... I'm training with power zones and its a must
