Cool field. Never used polar before, but this seems similar to a vo2max calculation? Garmin Connect does graph the running index per run but not over time. If you use GoldenCheetah you can create a user metric and average the index for each day then graph from there.

I was looking for that but apparently Garmin does not support such figures from customised values like the running index; sorry...

Is it possible to get it on cycle works?

Unfortunately the algorithm is not suitable for cycling, only for running.

As already mentioned that's a killer addition to a Garmin watches for people coming from Polar ecosystem. And for me even absolute value being calculated here matches what Polar used to calculate for me - that's really awesome. So thanks so much for doing it, really appreciate!
And now I have 1 suggestion for improvement and 1 question.
1. I guess it might be helpful to add a note in the app's description that Running Index is being only calculated if corresponding "data field" was added to one of the activity's data pages. I.e. it's not enough to just install this app from here.
2. Is there a way to graph Running Index in Garmin Connect? In the app and even more importantly in Garmin's web-service. In the same way as in Polar Flow I may see how Running Index changes with time.

Many thanks for your feedback. I have updated the description accordingly. To my knowledge there is no way to graph Running Index in the same way as in Polar Flow for trending. I am also missing this but unfortunately this seems not to be supported by Garmin Connect!

Thank you! What is the formula/expression for calculting RI? Just trying to understand how it can be improved.

Here are some useful explanations for understanding the algorithm:

I just installed it on vivoactive 4s, where it's gonna appear?
January 17, 2020 | Version 1.0.4
I get no result with Treadmill profile.
I currently use Stryd and Polar H10 with Garmin Fenix 6.
Does this work only with GPS?
January 17, 2020, Rider68
Yes, it works only with GPS
September 27, 2019 | Version 1.0.4
Interesting, calculation seems to be quite correct
May 17, 2019 | Version 1.0.2
Will this be available on the Forerunner 945 soon?
May 19, 2019, Rider68
Yes, an update is available, see Version 1.03.

I come from Polar and I missed Running index !
Thanks a lot, it works perfectly on my F5X !
