EPOC stands for Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption. It is an increase in oxygen uptake above resting levels that occurs during and after exercise.</p><p></p><p>Similar to how a car’s engine remains warm after being turned off, once a workout is over and you are back in your daily routine, your body’s metabolism can continue to burn more calories then when at complete rest. This physiological effect is called Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption, or EPOC.</p>

I find the EPOC value good to use especially for endurance rides and the app works good. But it would be very useful to see a graph with the progress or the value of EPOC of the last for example 2 minutes. This would be great. Thanks so far.

Hi. Have a Garmin Edge 820. Have downloaded this data field and had hoped to see graphic presentation of EPOC in the data reports of Garmin Connect. I don´t see any data. If I can´t find data in Garmin Connect - then where to find a presentation of data?

Hi. Did you use this datafield in one of your data screens ? It is mandatory !
