One of the best app to complement the Garmin's inbuilt data. One suggestion/wish, the secondary should be but larger, it becomes difficult to read them while riding.

Not sure what to think, same course and same effort, old version 6 months earlier shows 38 value, new version shows 57. any ideas?

Very cool data field. I enjoy the VO2 Max graph. Not certain how to decipher the energy expenditure graph. Overall, a very cool addition to my biking program.

This seems to be an excellent app. It is working for me but my results are not what I expected. I am 69, weigh 240 and am just getting back on my bike (indoor mount) to workout. My readings are in the mid 40's to low 50's. I've triple checked my setup values and am perplexed. I am using a Forerunner 920XT. Thanks for your insight.

How do I get the data field to start running? User guide available? All I can see is the settings and unistalled options.

Can't be deleted from Edge 520. Delivers always sync error.

Great data field, thank you for this. I was wondering how close and precise the calculated VO2max is compared to the values I got from a Swiss Olympic test. The data field VO2max value is almost 20 pioints higher that the value I got from the real test.

really good data field! the issue with the weight seems solved on there last version. cool! my only question is how the vo2max is calculated if Garmin needs the power data and this field works without it.

Hello Ramon and thanks for your comment. Power is not mandatory for the detailed, you can select, in the settings file, both HR or Power methods, if you do not own a power sensor, then select the HR method and, the data field will do the job.And if there is not a HR sensor too, no VO2 max will be calculated, of course...

Possuo o Garmin 235, o VO2 Max, permanece fixo em 27, já fiz mais de 7 atividades desde a instalação, o que devo fazer?

Dear Devloper, thanks for this wonderful datafield. But I have one important question. When I do the setting I have to enter a value for "Smooth VO2 Max". Unfortunately I do not understand the meaning of it and what I shall enter ... Can you explain? THX Peter

Developer Reply

Hello Peter and thanks for your comment. The field for Smooth VO2 max is here for both reasons: 1- you already know your VO2 max (the one already calculated by Garmin for example) and want to start with this known value otherwise, you will start from scratch; 2- in case of you loose the data field from your device (firmware issue, hard reset, etc), you can avoid to start from zero by setting your known VO2 max into this field so, the datafield continues its calculation with this base Smooth VO2 max, as if nothing ever happened !

Latest update works well enough on the vivoactive 4. -1 star until the algorithm and code are published or open sourced Thank you for this great datafield!

Thanks for this app! How is possible switch it to black background please? Thanks a lot

Developer Reply
May 15, 2020, Surfy66

Hello Robert and thanks for your question. To customize the background color, you need to enter the options of the whole activity and switch from white to black, the datafield will then automatically change its own background, this feature should normally be explained in your user manual, if your watch has this option.

It works fine . Is It possible ti import the data directly in the Connect VO2max field?

Developer Reply

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, it's not yet possible, Garmin does not allow us to replace their own VO2 max value, maybe in the future...

No longer working since latest update

Since the last update the app has a problem. As soon as you change your weight or resting heart rate, it no longer works. Too bad, because it's a great widget.

I confirm the behavior "Stipe" mentioned, data field does not work anymore after changing your weight. I am wondering if the weight have any influence on VO2 max calculation. I uninstalled and reinstalled without changing any setting, now it works as before. Apart from that great data field app (VA3 Music)

Kristof Deneire

Been using the app for a year now, works great on Garmin Edge Explore 820! Thanks a lot! Recently bought a Vivoactive 4, and somehow it took on my historical max VO2max in the user profile. I'm already wondering for the entire year now how it calculates the VO2max purely based on Heart Rate. Can you tell us what formula is used?

Stipe JC
April 15, 2020 | Version 2.15

It's normally working for default settings. When I change weight it doesn't work anymore. Why?

TJ
April 14, 2020 | Version 2.15

Information appears in Garmin Connect Activities which is great, but when I run VO2 Max reports to track my progress over time, it states there is no data.

Arvi Murel
April 13, 2020 | Version 2.15

Not working. I have Vivoactive 3. Installation and data field setup was without problems. ON cycling time I see on this field only "IQ!". After ride I saw chart where VO2 and Energy Expenditure charts is only 2,5 min. Ride was 30 min. I tested both basic and complex app.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
