This experimental data field will display estimated core body temperature based off heart rate during a physical activity. Please note this is only an estimate of core body temperature.</p><p></p><p>FAQ: https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=HU77nu3wOJ8Vx46Aw62Re9</p><p></p><p>Most athletes are at risk for heat illness when performing intense activities. According to Physiological Responses to Acute Exercise-Heat Stress by Sawka and Wenger, during physical exercise, heat production can increase by 10-20 times. Also, in the same paper, Sawka and Wenger note that less than 30% of the heat generated is converted to mechanical energy and the rest must be transferred outside the body. The body does this using the blood to transfer the heat to the skin.</p>
