Doesn't show up in my devices data fields (FR935), tried looking in every sub menu within the data screens selection menu as well.

Is there a way to fast forward a couple weeks?

Yes, but not on the watch. You need to use the Garmin Connect app on your phone or Garmin Express on a PC. On your phone, run the app, click settings then Garmin Devices, select watch, Activities Apps & More, Data Fields then Couch to 5k running app. From the SETTINGS menu you can set the day and week of your next workout.

Hi! Great up. But is it possible to switch off annoying and useless 1min vibrations?! They really badly interfere with signals that inform to switch between jog and run. Another thing is that it is not possible to see any time at what phase you are. That would be extra fine to have a J or W letter near the countdown to mark up the training phase.

Hi, Thanks for your comments. It is not currently possible to turn off the 1 minute vibrations without disabling all vibrations but it is something I will consider adding in a future update. Some people like these, and as a run leader I find them really helpful as a queue for providing encouragement to runners, so I think making this optional would be the best way forward.
I would eventually like to extend this to a more advanced data field which would allow me to combine text, graphics and colour with the numbers to provide a much more informative screen. Just need to find the time.

Finished! Worked great.

Is there a printable or downloadable copy of the training plan? I would like to see it over the 9-10 weeks.

The watch app follows the UK NHS Couch to 5k program. You can find details here: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/couch-to-5k-week-by-week/

Great app!! Thank you for creating this.
Is it possible to change it from timed runs to distance runs (similar to the app)?

Sorry, there is currently no option for this. It is something I will consider for future releases.

I have a vivoactive 3, how do i get this to work please?

The Couch to 5k app is a data field. When you download a new data field to your watch it does not appear automatically. It just becomes available for use in an activity.
You need to customise one of your activities to display this new data field. I recommend copying your default run activity, then adding the Couch to 5k data field to the copy. This way you can select to use either your default run activity or the modified copy depending on the type of run you will be doing.
You can find information on how to customise your data screens on Vivoactive 3 here: https://www8.garmin.com/manuals/webhelp/vivoactive3/EN-US/GUID-C6CF3D4D-4671-4EAD-95D7-83F52C2B51CD.html
I have not used the Vivoactive 3, but the Couch to 5k data field usually appears in a group called 'ConnectIQ Fields'.
Hope this helps.
