Couch to 5k running app


If you are taking part in a Couch to 5k training plan, either as a new runner, or as a training companion, then this data field could be just what you need. </p><p></p><p>During a workout session it provides a count-down timer showing the time left for the current phase of the workout. As you transition between walk/run stages it shows a prompt indicating that it is time to Walk or Jog. There are also vibration prompts 10 seconds before a transition and for each 1 minute during the countdown to keep you motivated.</p>

Says "Installed" on Garmin IQ, and my device is supposedly compatible, but i can't for the life of me get it to appear in my installed apps list.

Works great on my 645 music, also got it working on my old 235. Love the vibrations at each minute of the run and the 10 second warning. Only criticism is the last run was for 30min not 5km.

11. maaliskuuta 2020 | Versio 1.0.1

Not good. I can't find this app on my watch. There are instructions on the review page from a Garmin employee with words like "make a copy" or "data field" in. Those instructions are hopeless because I don't know how to make copies, don't know what a data field is. I need to be told, "press the button that looks like [picture of the actual thing I'm meant to press]". I tried to find out what a data field was, but everything about it was just composed of other jargon. I just want to use an app on a watch I've paid for. The running programme itself is a good one though. I gave up on the app and just manually created every run from the C25k programme as a workout. Took ages, but it didn't involve instructions which are opaque to the point of stupidity.

Used this app for the first time today and despite the app stating the run and walk sections it stopped at 15 minutes! Am I missing something?

Rubbish - doesn’t show up on forerunner 630 and loads into Harmon connect as data field not app - don’t bother

Martin Moran

This is a great data field. While I didn't create a new "run" profile, I just added it to the main page of my run profile. It's a fantastic addition to the run, with both a warm up and a cool down. Very well done!

8. tammikuuta 2020 | Versio 1.0.1

Says installed on my Fenix 5 Plus, but cant find anywhere?

8. tammikuuta 2020 | Versio 1.0.1

Doesn’t show up on my Fenix 5x

I cannot view this on my vivoactive, please can someone help?

I figured out how to add it to the data field but can't figure out how to copy the run and run indoor activities for when I don't want to use the couch to 5k. Can anyone help on forerunner 235?

29. marraskuuta 2019 | Versio 1.0.1

I know this program and used it in my phone apps. problem with this garmin app, that it doesn't give you the 5 minute warm-up and cool down periods. can't say for sure if it's a bug in this app or compatibility issues with my garmin forerunner 245 music watch.

Brilliant, thank you a lot for this! Much prefer using this rather than listening to the app as I run. Added as a data field in my running activity on my 235 and it works flawlessly. I also use the lap timer function so I can see the splits in Strava!

Works great on my VA3! Would love to see the interval number displayed so you can see which one you are on.

Cannot find this on my Forerunner 235 - any ideas? Would love to start this but cannot figure out where it is...

10. elokuuta 2019 | Versio 1.0.0-upd1

It doesn’t show up. I copied activity and try do add new field but there aren’t any new. Forerunner 645. What can I do?

31. heinäkuuta 2019 | Versio 1.0.0-upd1

Awesome! Had no problem adding it to my data field on vivoactive 3 music. Thank you!

Craig Whelan

vivoactive 3 music. Easily added data field to screen for my ‘treadmill’ & ‘run’ activities. Progressed my run to where I am in the program no issues. TYVM!

Works perfectly on forerunner 735 and really helped me achieve my goal of running 5k!

7. heinäkuuta 2019 | Versio 1.0.0-upd1

I was so excited to see this app and that it was compatible with VivoActive however it doesn't show up in your apps! I have searched everywhere

11. toukokuuta 2019 | Versio 1.0.0-upd1

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

Would love to use this app but it does show up in the apps on vivoactive 3

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.
