Running Power


This app displays your current running power.

Not working on my Fenix 6 Pro. Also impossible to add it as part of the new layouts screens where the gauge are displayed on top and bottom (like heart rate)

Not working on Fenix 6 Pro, IQ and exclamation mark shown Very strange, nothing changed , suddenly worked on the second run.

Not working on Fenix 6X. Using HRM tri and no data shown.

September 14, 2019 | Version 1.70

Not working on Fenix 6. Just get an exclamation mark in the data field

September 11, 2019 | Version 1.60

I love this datafield and would love support for Garmin fenix 6s

Alexis Menard

Fenix 6 support please.

September 5, 2019 | Version 1.60

Unfortunately as of right now (and I've confirmed with Garmin chat support) there is no way to enable the power gauges on the data field. You can change the settings on the GCM app for the data field, and update the zone boundaries, and yes, the GCM app tells you the settings were saved. But if you try to go back into the settings, it gives an error that the GCM cannot connect with the device. In my case, a FR945. Apparently this is also the case with customization of the watch faces as well. Garmin Chat support stated "this is a high priority, but have no idea when it will be fixed."

Para el fénix 6???? acabo de cambiar y no puedo descargarla...

This CIQ's data output seems like just for fun. Compare to the Stryd, this give the double power data. FYI, Stryd is certified to be good as they have the measurement with force plate to calculate and compare their output data. Hope this will be better in the future. We don't need this to be exact perfectly but need some more reality for input into other system. Thank you very much.

Enjoying the additional information this app is giving on my 945 linked with running Dynamics pod. Works very well and very easy to setup.

Why has this suddenly stopped working?

Paul Rosenberg
July 9, 2019 | Version 1.60

The data field will work intermittently. I have contacted Garmin by email 3 times for this data field since June 1, 2019 and as of July 8, 2019, I am yet to receive a response. This is DISGRACEFUL!

June 12, 2019 | Version 1.60

Como dice Mielero1980 no funciona, arréglenlo por favor!!! . Gracias

June 5, 2019 | Version 1.60

Hola. Hace mucho que uso esta aplicación. Con Forerunner 935 y banda HRM-Tri. Hasta ahora todo ok pero con esta actualización hay fallos. La configuro para que me muestre el valor y el gráfico de colores con la zona donde estas. Todo ok hasta que configuro en la app de movil Connect iQ las zonas con sus potencias. Después de hacer eso, voy al modo de deporte y me sale un icon0 de iQ con una admiración... como que hay un fallo. Ya no sale el gráfico con colores. Si la desinstalas y vuelves a instalar se soluciona, pero en cuanto le configuras las zonas otra vez pasa. Hay que solucionarlo porque sino podemos ver en que zona estamos en cada momento vale para poco. Por favor darle una solución. Muchas gracias. Un saludo

Not working as expected on the 945. Data on Garmin connect shows only some spikes

It's working, however when using training peaks, it does not show the power on the gauge.

April 4, 2019 | Version 1.40

¿Como podría calcular las zonas de trabajo de potencia?

March 24, 2019 | Version 1.40

+30% overstated measurements vs Stryd. Stryd matches Garmin's vo2max...

Have you any others that have cope with the problem that the running power (Garmin Lab) stopped working mid March for Garmin 935 watch. It have been working until recently, it just stopped and now I can´t see the power anymore when I am out running.

Dejan Bogdanovic

Today no avg and graphs at garmin connect? Fenix 5 and 935, both. During activity shows data field ok.

the power data as it is is unusable. it also varies too much to constant efforts in plan. you should be able to set the interval to 3" 5"

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
