Took me a while to figure out how to get in on my watch in the data field, but when I did it worked well for the first run. What I can’t figure out is where to view anything on my app? When I go to use my watch again it is still stuck on week 1 Day 1.

Did my first run with this app, starting at week 5 day 2 as I was using my phone before buying my Vivoactive 4. Using 3 data faces didn't show me any times related to c25k, just showed the text that said "Couch to 5k", not sure if having just 1 data face will change this. The 1 minute vibrations do motivate you, but I personally don't find them necessary. Not sure if I can sync the data with the C25K app on my phone to keep track. I will come back to update my review after a few weeks. For now, so far so good.

am using 735XT, struggled and felt frustrated for 4 days to find out the app on watch, in phone it shows installed. It's data field. Please see posts below by Jung Kim, Annie, Anabel..... Thanks to them for giving instructions how to find it on the watch (device). Thanks a ton to developer for giving this app.

Just completed week 5 run 3 this morning. This data field has worked perfectly the entire time. No problems. Would recommend.

Was loving the app up until week 5 run 2 when it didn’t run the session. I have done nothing different with the watch or the app for it not to work and now I have set the app to start the next run as week 5 run 3 and when I go into the run function on the watch it is not running the session. Anyone know how to fix this before my next run?

Uninstalled it. Have tried, but simply have no idea how this is supposed to work. I’m very tech savvy but I simply don’t get this...

I'm new to the C25K thing and the simple walk-run-walk-run with vibrating prompts along the way is all I need. Now I realise there's a 5 minute walking warm up at the start and cool down at the end of week 1 instead of a run I put myself through before I read the instructions, I'll skip ahead, change the settings and tackle week 4. Built myself a data screen with the C25K data field to glance at when needed. Many thanks 'developer guy' :-)

The idea is great and the implementation would be great too if only it did not have two major flaws. 1 - It is not synchronised with the official mobile app. As the majority of Couch to 5K users will know, It is the reassuring voice of Laura and her clear instructions that make this whole process possible. This app does not take into account the slight gaps between the end of a run and the start of a walk or the end of a walk and the start of a run so it quickly gets out of step. By the end of the last run is about 15 seconds fast which makes the really useful countdown feature a lot less useful. It gives a false sense of progress with is really disheartening. 2- At the end of run three on Week two (and may be others) it added an extra two minutes walk before the final warm down walk. This means that when the mobile app had finished, this app still had about 90 seconds to go! - Where did that two minutes come from? It does not instil much confidence. This is a real shame. The app is a really good idea, but the first issue makes it far less useful than it could be. As a software developer I know this is easy to fix, I just hope the developer takes it on board. I gave it Okay rather than Bad because it has a lot potential and could easily be great.

@Francesca I had the same problem but I found out how it works. I have the VivoActive 3 Music and you just need to install C25K through the app on your phone and then go to the activities on your watch, then press :Run". Afterwards scroll down to "Settings" -> "Data Screens". Scroll down again and enable the 3rd Screen "Screen 3" -> "Edit Data Fields" -> then you can choose "Couch to 5k" as a new data field :) You're welcome

How do I get this app to show on my watch? I have the Vivoactive 3. It shows as installed when I look under Data Fields on my phone but I've not been able to find it on my watch.

Vivoactive 4. The field just reads couch to 5 k without timer or any other indication that is working. The vibration though works properly according to the workout. Any idea what is wrong?

I love it! Is there any way to view each run or walk timings for each session? Im a run leader and just used it for week one. On the first day my partner said we'd completed 8 runs but the app still had one more left. I thought she was mistaken. So, we then did day two on week one and counted them this time. there were definitely a total of 9 runs instead of 8. Please can you check if an extra run has crept in on week one? Brilliant implementation - thanks so much :)

Love the app however I was wondering if there is a way of removing or skipping the warm up and warm down? I would like the tracking to only record the run and walk intervals between the runs, otherwise would be 5 star.

Instructions to access on watch were not provided, except in comments. Needs functionality to select which day of the program you'd like to use - I'm on Week 5 on the app my phone, but have no way to adjust this in the watch program. It would also be nice to be able to repeat days, as desired. That said, I appreciate the availability of this free app, it's just not very useful if you've already started the C25K program on another device.

You can adjust the week and day of the next workout, but you need to do this using Garmin Connect on your phone. This is a Garmin limitation and not something I can work around. In Garmin Connect (on your phone) enter the menu and select Garmin Devices. Select your device, then Activities, Apps and more. Select Data fields, then Couch to 5k running app. Select SETTINGS and you will abe able to choose which week and day you will use for your next workout.

App looks good. I have just started using the Garmin watch after previously doing part of the programme on a different app on my phone. Is there any way to pre select which week programme I want to use? Eg I had reached week 3 on my other provider but when I use this on the watch i cant find a way to skip week 1 and 2 to start at week 3 ? Thanks in advance

I really like this app, but not a fan of the notifications. I’d like to get rid of the 1-minute and 10-second notifications, and add a turn around notification. Also, is there a way to make it beep when it vibrates? Since I intend to continue using this app, is there a way I can make a donation?

Thanks for the feedback. It is possible to turn off all notifications for this data field via the settings in Garmin Connect on your phone. I could look at making these individually controllable. Not sure what you mean by 'turn around' notification. I assume you are doing this as an out and back run and are looking for a half way alert. The problem is that not all workouts are symetrical, so half way in distance is not necessarily half way in time and the actual time will depend on the pace of your jog and walk sections. Thanks for your offer of a donation. I have added a link at the bottom of the description on the main page.

Annie Turner’s directions work for the Forerunner 245 as well. Thank you for posting how to this!! Also, the couch to 5k program on the watch is better than on the phone in my opinion!

Works perfectly! Especially helpful in allowing you to leave the phone at home while tracking the CouchTo5k plan from the watch

Very useful app! One feature request: could you put a 'W' for walk or 'J' for jog before or after the countdown?

Thanks for the feedback. I will look at your suggestion. Unfortunately the way the Garmin API works for this type of data field means that as soon as you add one or more letters, the text gets smaller, making the numbers more difficult to read. Perhaps it could be an optional setting.

Ok so putting this app on your watch is really frustrating initially BUT the girl below me posted how to do it and it works and is amazing YAY This is what she said ATTENTION: everyone who couldn’t get this to show up on their watch. I have the vivoactive 3 music. Go to settings - activities & apps - add (at the bottom) - create - copy an activity (I chose run) - choose a name - data screens - screen 1 - edit data fields - click one of the 4 “data fields” to edit - connect IQ apps - couch to 5k

Thank you for posting this information. I do not have access to a range of watches to test with, so cannot provide instructions for every variant.

Once added, the app works as described. I do wish it was possible to adjust the alert settings. It did take a little bit to get the data field to show up in my Run app. These steps are for my Garmin Descent Mk1. Refer to your paper or online manual. - Press and hold Menu button on the device. - Scroll down and enter Settings - Scroll down and enter Activities & Apps - Scroll down to Run or any other activity - Enter Run Settings (or scroll down to copy and create a new activity) - Enter Data Screens - Press your Edit button to select Layout (1 field) - Select Field 1 - ConnectIQ Field to find the "Couch to 5k" data screen That should then add the data to your Run activity.

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.
