Good datafield, I ask if possible to have a big size text when both carb and fat are selected on Fenix 5. Too small. Thank you.

In "simple" data fields the text size is not under control of the developer but chosen by the Garmin software. Cheers, Peter.

Great Idea! But a little inaccurate, I think. When I walk almost 100% of the calories burned are attributed to fat. May I suggest that you use the information provided on this website to make the fat burn a little more accurate? http://www.exercisemed.org/research-blog/exercise-intensity-for.html

Developer Reply
18 May 2018, peterdedecker

you can configure the percentages in the app settings. See this link for how to do app settings: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/developers/connect-iq/connect-iq-showcase/115055-how-to-app-settings Cheers, Peter

Great work! Thanks for your effort. I have a small suggestion. Wouldn't it be more meaningful if the graphs display fat/carbs burned per hour instead?

Developer Reply
13 May 2018, peterdedecker

Doing it on a hourly base is a bit of a problem. What if you don't run for an hour for example? Cheers, Peter.

As I have been able to verify, the application has a fault, every time you put on pause and resume the exercise, the burned fat increases considerably, therefore, the data of burned fat is erroneous. I checked it by doing indoor bike, in 14 minutes of exercise stopping and resuming the clock, I burned 10.05g of fat and 7.38g of carbs and 120 Kcal, and the same day but later, in 43 minutes of continuous exercise I burned 9 , 60g of fat and 129.90g of carbs and 606 Kcal. Therefore the data of burned fat is not correct, and I repeat, I have detected the fault when during an activity, you stop the timer and continue several times. I hope it can be solved because it is a good application. Greetings.Sorry for the translation

Theoretical a nice data field but still a bad bug: In case you choose 'fat and carbs' and record (!) both ... than pause the exercise and follow it up it up later ... this fit file gets corrupt and prevents synchronisation with Garmin Express. The only way to get it working again is deleting that fit file from the watch and (!) from the computer ! Strange thing as it does not happen when 'fat and carbs' are not recorded.

For future support questions please use the support topic. Fit file writing is not something that is under my control, all I can do is set the value, the writing to FIT file is something that the Garmin API handles. There's a multitude of FIT issues that all have been reported. If you synchronize through Garmin Connect Mobile and use the Garmin Connect web version to consult seems to be the best combo. Cheers, Peter.

It's really great to see that you can give us back us in some way what Garmin has withdrawn, namely the fat calorie calculation which they introduced already for 310XT and 910XT. I wrote a longer message with 'contact developer', but let me highlight here too, that the predefined percentages of the widgetis are too high for people except for pro athletes. I guess before you assigned the percentages to the HR zones the latter were considered as zones applying the modified Karvonen approach, so breaking down the HRR into 5 zones like 50-60%, .... and 90-100%. Since I participated in respirometry test in real labs where even a cardiologist supervised the whole procedure I must say that my Respiratory Exchange Ratio at different HRs implies that already in the upper part of Z0 the share of fat is less than 80%. So for the whole Z0 and especially for Z1, 100% is an overly optimistic estimation. And similarly 80% for Z2 is almost double of my numbers. Certainly I could tweak my HR zones to get a better fat cal estimation, but I fear that some other numbers will be accidently tweaked and ruined like training effect. Anyway my main message should not be this one, but the happiness seeing that somebody started to deal with fat calories burnt as a data filed of Garmin gadgets, Zoltan

my Favorit IQ DataField on FR3 and Edge820. Thank you very much, Peter. Is it possible to make a simple linear (or expo) function to calculate the fat grams (100% = HFrest, 0%=HFmax) instead of clustering to HF zones, perhaps it will be more precise? Don't misunderstand, it's a good tool already.

Hey JD, for questions preferably use the support topic. I think the answer to your question might be stated here in this post: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/developers/connect-iq/connect-iq-showcase/159060-?p=1228852#post1228852 In case that doesn't fix it, let me know. Cheers, Peter.

in the next version of the fatburner I'll try to add the totals to the summary info. Regarding month totals, I don't think that you'll be able to sum developer fields in the reports on garmin connect.

This is the most useful app I have downloaded, good accurate information on fat/carb calories burned related to effort. This app provides motivation when training at Zone1/2 fat burning level. I use an Edge 1000 and have found the counter dose not reset to zero after stopping and saving the ride, it will only reset by changing between activities.

this functionality is available as of version 2.0, be sure to enable the settings to record to the fit file in the settings of the app (you reach the settings via Garmin Connect Mobile / Garmin Express)

Thank you for this datafield Peter!...I made manual calculations and it works perfect! For more accuracy, users have to use Karvonen formula in their user's profile HR zones. You have to choose % HRR method...put your HR-Rest in your profile and then set Z1@50-65%, Z2@65-75%, Z3@75-85%, Z4@85-95%, Z5@95-100%.....

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
