I just bought a Garmin running dynamics pod. I'm very disappointed that my Garmin power readings don't show in the results in the app or on the Connect website. I can see the lap power value on the data screen while I run, although it is in very small sized figures. It's no real use though, if I have no record of it on Connect. I can't see whether I am improving or not or analyse the power readings lap by lap. All the other running dynamics values are shown in the laps, and in graphic form. Why not Garmin Power? I do have a Stryd pod as well. That shows up in Garmin Connect in laps and in graphic form. Unfortunately, the Stryd also comes with lots of other duplicated data that I already have on the Garmin pod or from an HRM-Run strap. The Stryd does however lack Ground Contact Balance, which is one of the most interesting metrics for me. I also wanted to compare the Garmin Power readings with my Stryd readings to see which is best. I can't understand why there is no record of Garmin Power kept on the Connect app or website.
It is working with HRM-Run band and fenix 5x, got 651w Power @ 5000m@ 3:50 min/km pace

with new view of garmin connect app from phone, with scheduled workout with repeated interval training, doesn't show the column with lap power value. Ok instead when i connect to Garmin connect server, i can see normally the column with power values
Measures 400W at all speeds - no matter whether running 6:30 or 4:30

What a disappointment, as the other reviewers said (more than a year ago!!!) The lap power does not work with the laps of a structured workout. Totally useless.
Works well for me. I put on my screen focussed on Laps and watch the Lap Power. It essentially gives me something like Grade Adjusted Pace. More useful to me than the current Run Power that tends to jump around, same as my power meter on my bike.
As per the other reviews, lap power works fine when auto-laps are active or by pressing the lap button if in the manual lap setting. However, when you use a structured workout (e.g. using the Training Peaks app), disable auto-laps (to allow laps to be dictated by the structured workout schedule) the display shows average power for the entire run, which is far from ideal.
Having the same issue as previous reviewer. It occurs when using structured workouts. This field shows average power for the whole run, not lap power for each step.
Hello! Thanks Garmin for the good work during the last fews months to offer us power data for run. I'm using this data field with my Fenix 5 and I get average power for all my run and not only my current lap. Looking for a fix asap. Regards.
