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>


Version 1.0.1 has been updated to support new devices

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

20 janvier 2020 | Version 1.0.1

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 janvier 2020 | Version 1.0.1

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

8 janvier 2020 | Version 1.0.1

Doesn’t show up on my Fenix 5x

Doesn't show up on the Vivoactive 4S watch. Not able to use it.

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 novembre 2019 | Version 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 août 2019 | Version 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 juillet 2019 | Version 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 juillet 2019 | Version 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 mai 2019 | Version 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.

5 avril 2019 | Version 1.0.0-upd1

Finished! Worked great.

27 mars 2019 | Version 1.0.0-upd1

Is there a printable or downloadable copy of the training plan? I would like to see it over the 9-10 weeks.

The watch app follows the UK NHS Couch to 5k program. You can find details here:

23 mars 2019 | Version 1.0.0-upd1

Great app!! Thank you for creating this. Is it possible to change it from timed runs to distance runs (similar to the app)?

Sorry, there is currently no option for this. It is something I will consider for future releases.

I have a vivoactive 3, how do i get this to work please?

Réponse du développeur

The Couch to 5k app is a data field. When you download a new data field to your watch it does not appear automatically. It just becomes available for use in an activity. You need to customise one of your activities to display this new data field. I recommend copying your default run activity, then adding the Couch to 5k data field to the copy. This way you can select to use either your default run activity or the modified copy depending on the type of run you will be doing. You can find information on how to customise your data screens on Vivoactive 3 here: I have not used the Vivoactive 3, but the Couch to 5k data field usually appears in a group called 'ConnectIQ Fields'. Hope this helps.

5 mars 2019 | Version 1.0.0-upd1

I just finished the program today, and it worked great. Now I need to find a 10k version that picks up where this left off.

Désolé, aucune statistique n'est disponible pour le moment.
