I really like this app. However, it crashes after about 23 minutes of exercise. Can this be fixed? I will gladly give a 5-star if this issue is fixed.

works fine in garmin gives me a better result than vO2max calculated by garmin but it's ok because this value of this app is the same with the one measured in ergometric test i have done!

14 de agosto de 2017 | Versión 1.24

Hi, Unfortunately the app doesn't show VO2 in real time, it has shown constant 0,12 yesterday. Am I misunderstood anything related the using of the app? Thanks, Balázs

Sorry, but diuring run, the letters of this app on my watch Fenix 3, are unreadibel for me. Is it possible to enlarge them?

Very good with new features. Only a tip, if you accept it. Add the chance to add the final cardiac drift as summary at the end of workout (on Connect of course). Drif is important related to long run (it's a nonsense, imho, use drift in interval workout for example) so to have it as simple value in connect at the end of workout should be great. No need of graph, imho, only the final value. Thanks.

Thanks Sergio for your nice comment. I will do all my best to add this data in the summary, sure !

Very good app, nice to have it. thank you. I will try it more from now on!

2 de agosto de 2017 | Versión 1.20

Very useful app !! Should be great to add, to have a complete view of the cardiovascular fitness, the cardiac drift too. With these features (vo2 e cardiac drift) together will be a killer application !!

Hello Sergio, and many thanks for your comment. It is a great suggestion, and I will try to add this feature soon, if possible. I need time to think about calculating and coding it.

Hello, you have a wonderful IQ, would have the option to be able to configure the speed that instead of km / h was in min / km ??? hola, tienes una IQ maravillosa, habria la opcion de poder configurar la velocidad que en vez de km/h fuese en min/km ???

Hello and thanks for your comment. Your suggestion is already available in the new release 1.17, min/km or min/miles depending the watch settings.

"Nice to have" will be estimator of copper test results before reach 12minutes what can be caluculated like = current time in s *(goal time in s/current distance in m)

No lo he usado pero hace mucho que buscaba una funcionalidad como esta. Según veo en los comentarios es muy buena y ya estoy ansioso por usarla. I have not used it but it has long been looking for functionality like this. As I see in the comments is very good and I am already anxious to use it. Best Regards from Dominican Republic

This App is great. Does what it is supposed to do. Yet the calculation für V02 seems to be somewhat off. Every other app on the market says my V02 average is between 52 and 49. Yet this app calculates it between 39 and 40. When I am running fast it switches to 67+. So this is very confusing for me.

11 de julio de 2017, Surfy66

Hello Lukas and thanks for your comment. This DF is intended to calculate your VO2 max and the average of each VO2 max, but absolutely not your average VO2 during your session. So, 67 VO2 max with this DF for a known calculated average VO2 between 49 and 52 seems to be some quite coherent.

I'm very happy with this widget really good work. but I would like to ask you, if it is possible to add cooper test countdown (12min or adjustable) with vybration on end. as currently i need to use 2 datafiled and theres no space for third on my Vivoactive HR.

Hello and thanks for your comment. I am afraid it will be difficult to add this functionality to this data field as it almost reaches the memory limit of 16 Ko on certain models, like VivoHR. And yes, we are all a little bit frustrated with this two IQ apps limitation, even on Fenix 5 ! So, I will try, but without promise... However, I guess I can easily add it in the new simple similar data field you can find here Will try the two combinations.

Very useful data field for runners. Nice to have "real time" access to VO2 max during workout. The balance between highest VO2 max of the current (or previous) session and the current VO2 is very motivating when training. Works very well on Fenix 3 HR, once installed. The only limitation is the difficulty to access to highest VO2 Max and average VO2 Max after the workout. Hopping that could be solved in next release. Very good support, with quick answer to requests. Thansk for this app. --- Un champ de données très utile pour les coureurs. Super d'avoir accès à sa VO2 Max durant les sorties. L’accès simultané de la valeur la plus élevée durant la session (ou la session précédente) et la valeur courante est très motivante pendant un entrainement. Fonctionne très bien sur Fénix 3 HR, après installation correcte. La seule limitation réside dans la difficulté d'accès à la valeur VO2 Max et VO2 Max moyenne après une sortie. En espérant une solution de ce bug dans une prochaine version. Une support sympathique, rapide et efficace quelle que soit la question. Merci pour cette app.

Works well on my F3 but it doesn't give me a readings chart when viewing a run in GC. Also it's not saving a reading to my F3. The cycling version does both of those.

Thanks for your comment. This issue is fixed, you can now have the graph in your Garmin Connect profile, like the Cycling VO2 max data field.

Very useful and cool VO2 data field for running. Works perfect on my fenix 5, as well as the similar cycling VO2 data field from Surfy66. Author of the VO2 Max software instantly replied me to a functional question.
