Sailing
Tack Assist
While cruising or racing into the wind, the tack assist feature can
help you determine if your boat is being lifted or headed. When
you calibrate tack assist, the device captures your boat's port
and starboard
course over ground (COG) measurements,
and uses the COG data to calculate the mean true wind
direction
and the boat's tack angle .
The device uses this data to determine whether your boat is
being lifted or headed due wind shifts.
By default, the device tack assist is set to automatic. Each time
you calibrate the port or starboard COG, the device recalibrates
the opposite side and true wind direction. You can change the
tack assist settings to enter a fixed tack angle or true wind
direction.
NOTE: The device uses GPS-based course over ground to
determine your course in the tack assist feature, and does not
account for other factors that can affect your boat's direction,
such as currents and tides.
Calibrating the Tack Assist
1 From the watch face, select START.
2 Select Sail Race or Sail.
3 Select UP or DOWN to view the tack assist screen.
4 Select START.
5 Select an option:
• To calibrate the starboard side, select START.
• To calibrate the port side, select DOWN.
2
TIP: If the wind is coming from the starboard side of the
vessel, you should calibrate starboard. If the wind is coming
from the port side of the vessel, you should calibrate port.
6 Wait while the device calibrates the tack assist.
An arrow appears and indicates if your boat is being lifted or
headed.
Entering a Fixed Tack Angle or True Wind Direction
1 From the watch face, select START.
2 Select Sail Race or Sail.
3 Select UP or DOWN to view the tack assist screen.
4 Hold MENU.
5 Select Tack Angle or True Wind Direction.
6 Select Fixed.
7 Select UP or DOWN to set the value.
Tips for Getting the Best Lift Estimate
To get the best lift estimate when using the tack assist feature,
you can try these tips. See Entering a Fixed Tack Angle or True
Wind Direction, page 2 and Calibrating the Tack Assist, page 2
for more information.
• Enter a fixed tack angle, and calibrate the port side.
• Enter a fixed tack angle, and calibrate the starboard side.
• Use the Auto tack angle setting, and calibrate both the port
and starboard side.
Sail Racing
You can use the device to increase the likelihood that your boat
will cross the start line of a race exactly when the race begins.
When you synchronize the regatta timer in the sail racing app
with the official race countdown timer, you are alerted at oneminute intervals as the race start approaches. When you set the
starting line, the device uses GPS data to indicate whether your
boat will cross the start line before, after, or at the correct time to
start the race.

1 From the watch face, select START > Sail Race.
2 Wait while the device locates satellites.
3 Hold MENU.

Swim Terminology
Length: One trip down the pool.
Interval: One or more consecutive lengths. A new interval starts
after a rest.
Stroke: A stroke is counted every time your arm wearing the
device completes a full cycle.
Swolf: Your swolf score is the sum of the time for one pool
length and the number of strokes for that length. For
example, 30 seconds plus 15 strokes equals a swolf score of
45. For open water swimming, swolf is calculated over 25
meters. Swolf is a measurement of swimming efficiency and,
like golf, a lower score is better.

Running Dynamics
You can use your compatible MARQ device paired with the
HRM-Tri accessory or other running dynamics accessory to
provide real-time feedback about your running form.
The running dynamics accessory has an accelerometer that
measures torso movement in order to calculate six running
metrics.
Cadence: Cadence is the number of steps per minute. It
displays the total steps (right and left combined).
Vertical oscillation: Vertical oscillation is your bounce while
running. It displays the vertical motion of your torso,
measured in centimeters.
Ground contact time: Ground contact time is the amount of
time in each step that you spend on the ground while
running. It is measured in milliseconds.
NOTE: Ground contact time and balance are not available
while walking.
Ground contact time balance: Ground contact time balance
displays the left/right balance of your ground contact time
while running. It displays a percentage. For example, 53.2
with an arrow pointing left or right.
Stride length: Stride length is the length of your stride from one
footfall to the next. It is measured in meters.
Vertical ratio: Vertical ratio is the ratio of vertical oscillation to
stride length. It displays a percentage. A lower number
typically indicates better running form.
Training with Running Dynamics
Before you can view running dynamics, you must put on a
running dynamics accessory, such as the HRM-Tri accessory,
and pair it with your device (Pairing Your Wireless Sensors,
page 38).
1 Hold MENU.
2 Select Activities & Apps.
3 Select an activity.
4 Select the activity settings.
5 Select Data Screens > Add New.
6 Select a running dynamics data screen.
NOTE: The running dynamics screens are not available for
all activities.
7 Go for a run (Starting an Activity, page 4).
8 Select UP or DOWN to open a running dynamics screen to
view your metrics.
Color Gauges and Running Dynamics Data
The running dynamics screens display a color gauge for the primary metric. You can display cadence, vertical oscillation, ground
contact time, ground contact time balance, or vertical ratio as the primary metric. The color gauge shows you how your running
dynamics data compare to those of other runners. The color zones are based on percentiles.
Garmin has researched many runners of all different levels. The data values in the red or orange zones are typical for less
experienced or slower runners. The data values in the green, blue, or purple zones are typical for more experienced or faster
runners. More experienced runners tend to exhibit shorter ground contact times, lower vertical oscillation, lower vertical ratio, and
higher cadence than less experienced runners. However, taller runners typically have slightly slower cadences, longer strides, and
slightly higher vertical oscillation. Vertical ratio is your vertical oscillation divided by stride length. It is not correlated with height.
Go to www.garmin.com/runningdynamics for more information on running dynamics. For additional theories and interpretations of
running dynamics data, you can search reputable running publications and websites.

Ground Contact Time Balance Data
Ground contact time balance measures your running symmetry and appears as a percentage of your total ground contact time. For
example, 51.3% with an arrow pointing left indicates the runner is spending more time on the ground when on the left foot. If your
data screen displays both numbers, for example 48–52, 48% is the left foot and 52% is the right foot.

While developing and testing running dynamics, the Garmin team found correlations between injuries and greater imbalances with
certain runners. For many runners, ground contact time balance tends to deviate further from 50–50 when running up or down hills.
Most running coaches agree that a symmetrical running form is good. Elite runners tend to have quick and balanced strides.
You can watch the color gauge or data field during your run or view the summary on your Garmin Connect account after your run.
As with the other running dynamics data, ground contact time balance is a quantitative measurement to help you learn about your
running form.
Vertical Oscillation and Vertical Ratio Data
The data ranges for vertical oscillation and vertical ratio are slightly different depending on the sensor and whether it is positioned at
the chest (HRM-Tri or HRM-Run™ accessories) or at the waist (Running Dynamics Pod accessory).

About VO2 Max. Estimates
VO2 max. is the maximum volume of oxygen (in milliliters) you
can consume per minute per kilogram of body weight at your
maximum performance. In simple terms, VO2 max. is an
indication of athletic performance and should increase as your
level of fitness improves. The MARQ device requires wristbased heart rate or a compatible chest heart rate monitor to
display your VO2 max. estimate. The device has separate VO2
max. estimates for running and cycling. You must run either
outside with GPS or ride with a compatible power meter at a
moderate level of intensity for several minutes to get an
accurate VO2 max. estimate.
On the device, your VO2 max. estimate appears as a number,
description, and position on the color gauge. On your Garmin
Connect account, you can view additional details about your
VO2 max. estimate, including your fitness age. Your fitness age
gives you an idea of how your fitness compares with a person of
the same gender and different age. As you exercise, your fitness
age can decrease over time.
Turning Off Performance Notifications
Some performance notifications appear upon completion of your
activity. Some performance notifications appear during an
activity or when you achieve a new performance measurement,
such as a new VO2 max. estimate. You can turn off the

About Training Effect
Training Effect measures the impact of an activity on your
aerobic and anaerobic fitness. Training Effect accumulates
during the activity. As the activity progresses, the Training Effect
value increases. Training Effect is determined by your user
profile information and training history, and heart rate, duration,
Heart Rate Features
and intensity of your activity. There are seven different Training
Effect labels to describe the primary benefit of your activity.
Each label is color coded and corresponds to your training load
focus (Training Load Focus, page 19). Each feedback phrase,
for example, "Highly Impacting VO2 Max." has a corresponding
description in your Garmin Connect activity details.
Aerobic Training Effect uses your heart rate to measure how the
accumulated intensity of an exercise affects your aerobic fitness
and indicates if the workout had a maintaining or improving
effect on your fitness level. Your excess post-exercise oxygen
consumption (EPOC) accumulated during exercise is mapped to
a range of values that account for your fitness level and training
habits. Steady workouts at moderate effort or workouts involving
longer intervals (>180 sec) have a positive impact on your
aerobic metabolism and result in an improved aerobic Training
Effect.
Anaerobic Training Effect uses heart rate and speed (or power)
to determine how a workout affects your ability to perform at
very high intensity. You receive a value based on the anaerobic
contribution to EPOC and the type of activity. Repeated highintensity intervals of 10 to 120 seconds have a highly beneficial
impact on your anaerobic capability and result in an improved
anaerobic Training Effect.
You can add Aerobic Training Effect and Anaerobic Training
Effect as data fields to one of your training screens to monitor
your numbers throughout the activity.

Heart Rate Variability and Stress Level
Stress level is the result of a three-minute test performed while
standing still, where the MARQ device analyzes heart rate
variability to determine your overall stress. Training, sleep,
nutrition, and general life stress all impact how a runner
performs. The stress level range is from 1 to 100, where 1 is a
very low stress state and 100 is a very high stress state.
Knowing your stress level can help you decide if your body is
ready for a tough training run or yoga.
Viewing Your Heart Rate Variability and Stress Level
This feature requires a Garmin chest heart rate monitor. Before
you can view your heart rate variability (HRV) stress level, you
must put on a heart rate monitor and pair it with your device
(Pairing Your Wireless Sensors, page 38).
TIP: Garmin recommends that you measure your stress level at
approximately the same time and under the same conditions
every day.

Performance Condition
As you complete your activity, such as running or cycling, the
performance condition feature analyzes your pace, heart rate,
and heart rate variability to make a real-time assessment of your
ability to perform compared to your average fitness level. It is
approximately your real-time percentage deviation from your
baseline VO2 max. estimate.
Performance condition values range from -20 to +20. After the
first 6 to 20 minutes of your activity, the device displays your
performance condition score. For example, a score of +5 means
that you are rested, fresh, and capable of a good run or ride.
You can add performance condition as a data field to one of
your training screens to monitor your ability throughout the
activity. Performance condition can also be an indicator of
fatigue level, especially at the end of a long training run or ride.
NOTE: The device requires a few runs or rides with a heart rate
monitor to get an accurate VO2 max. estimate and learn about
your running or riding ability (About VO2 Max. Estimates,
page 16).
Viewing Your Performance Condition
This feature requires wrist-based heart rate or a compatible
chest heart rate monitor.

Lactate Threshold
Lactate threshold is the exercise intensity at which lactate (lactic
acid) starts to accumulate in the bloodstream. In running, it is
the estimated level of effort or pace. When a runner exceeds the
threshold, fatigue starts to increase at an accelerating rate. For
experienced runners, the threshold occurs at approximately 90%
of their maximum heart rate and between 10k and half-marathon
race pace. For average runners, the lactate threshold often
occurs well below 90% of maximum heart rate. Knowing your
lactate threshold can help you determine how hard to train or
when to push yourself during a race.
If you already know your lactate threshold heart rate value, you
can enter it in your user profile settings (Setting Your Heart Rate
Zones, page 21).
Performing a Guided Test to Determine Your Lactate
Threshold
This feature requires a Garmin chest heart rate monitor. Before
you can perform the guided test, you must put on a heart rate
monitor and pair it with your device (Pairing Your Wireless
Sensors, page 38).
The device uses your user profile information from the initial
setup and your VO2 max. estimate to estimate your lactate
threshold. The device will automatically detect your lactate
threshold during runs at a steady, high intensity with heart rate.
TIP: The device requires a few runs with a chest heart rate
monitor to get an accurate maximum heart rate value and VO2
max. estimate. If you are having trouble getting a lactate
threshold estimate, try manually lowering your maximum heart
rate value.
1 From the watch face, select START.

If this is your first lactate threshold estimate, the device
prompts you to update your heart rate zones based on your
lactate threshold heart rate. For each additional lactate
threshold estimate, the device prompts you to accept or
decline the estimate.
Getting Your FTP Estimate
Before you can get your functional threshold power (FTP)
estimate, you must pair a chest heart rate monitor and power
meter with your device (Pairing Your Wireless Sensors,
page 38), and you must get your VO2 max. estimate (Getting
Your VO2 Max. Estimate for Cycling, page 17).
The device uses your user profile information from the initial

Heart Rate Features
Training Status
These measurements are estimates that can help you track and
understand your training activities. The measurements require a
few activities using wrist-based heart rate or a compatible chest
heart rate monitor. Cycling performance measurements require
a heart rate monitor and a power meter.
These estimates are provided and supported by Firstbeat. For
more information, go to garmin.com/performance-data/running.
NOTE: The estimates may seem inaccurate at first. The device
requires you to complete a few activities to learn about your
performance.
Training status: Training status shows you how your training
affects your fitness and performance. Your training status is
based on changes to your training load and VO2 max. over
an extended time period.
VO2 max.: VO2 max. is the maximum volume of oxygen (in
milliliters) you can consume per minute per kilogram of body
weight at your maximum performance. Your device displays
heat and altitude corrected VO2 max. values when you are
acclimating to high heat environemnts or high altitude.
Training load: Training load is the sum of your excess postexercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) over the last 7 days.
EPOC is an estimate of how much energy it takes for your
body to recover after exercise.
Training load focus: Your device analyzes and distributes your
training load into different categories based on the intensity
and structure of each activity recorded. Training load focus
includes the total load accumulated per category, and the
focus of the training. Your device displays your load
distribution over the last 4 weeks.
Recovery time: The recovery time displays how much time
remains before you are fully recovered and ready for the next
hard workout.
Training Status Levels
Training status shows you how your training affects your fitness
level and performance. Your training status is based on changes
to your training load and VO2 max. over an extended time
period. You can use your training status to help plan future
training and continue improving your fitness level.
Peaking: Peaking means that you are in ideal race condition.
Your recently reduced training load is allowing your body to
recover and fully compensate for earlier training. You should
plan ahead, since this peak state can only be maintained for
a short time.
Productive: Your current training load is moving your fitness
level and performance in the right direction. You should plan
recovery periods into your training to maintain your fitness
level.
Maintaining: Your current training load is enough to maintain
your fitness level. To see improvement, try adding more
variety to your workouts or increasing your training volume.
Recovery: Your lighter training load is allowing your body to
recover, which is essential during extended periods of hard
training. You can return to a higher training load when you
feel ready.
Unproductive: Your training load is at a good level, but your
fitness is decreasing. Your body may be struggling to
Heart Rate Features
recover, so you should pay attention to your overall health
including stress, nutrition, and rest.
Detraining: Detraining occurs when you are training much less
than usual for a week or more, and it is affecting your fitness
level. You can try increasing your training load to see
improvement.
Overreaching: Your training load is very high and
counterproductive. Your body needs a rest. You should give
yourself time to recover by adding lighter training to your
schedule.
No Status: The device needs one or two weeks of training
history, including activities with VO2 max. results from
running or cycling, to determine your training status.
Tips for Getting Your Training Status
The training status feature depends on updated assessments of
your fitness level, including at least two VO2 max.
measurements per week. Your VO2 max. estimate is updated
after outdoor runs or rides with power during which your heart
rate reached at least 70% of your maximum heart rate for
several minutes. The trail run and indoor run activities do not
generate a VO2 max. estimate in order to preserve the accuracy
of your fitness level trend.
To get the most out of the training status feature, you can try
these tips.
• At least two times per week, run or ride outdoors with a
power meter, and reach a heart rate higher than 70% of your
maximum heart rate for at least 10 minutes.
After using the device for one week, your training status
should be available.
• Record all of your fitness activities on this device, or enable
the Physio TrueUp feature, allowing your device to learn
about your performance (Syncing Activities and Performance
Measurements, page 16).
Heat and Altitude Performance Acclimation
Environmental factors such as high temperature and altitude
impact your training and performance. For example, high
altitude training can have a positive impact on your fitness, but
you may notice a temporary VO2 max. decline while exposed to
high altitudes. Your MARQ device provides acclimation
notifications and corrections to your VO2 max. estimate and
training status when the temperature is above 22ºC (72ºF) and
when the altitude is above 800 m (2625 ft.). You can keep track
of your heat and altitude acclimation in the training status
widget.
NOTE: The heat acclimation feature is available only for GPS
activities and requires weather data from your connected
smartphone. Full acclimation takes a minimum of 4 training
days.
Training Load
Training load is a measurement of your training volume over the
last seven days. It is the sum of your excess post-exercise
oxygen consumption (EPOC) measurements for the last seven
days. The gauge indicates whether your current load is low,
high, or within the optimal range to maintain or improve your
fitness level. The optimal range is determined based on your
individual fitness level and training history. The range adjusts as
your training time and intensity increase or decrease.
Training Load Focus
In order to maximize performance and fitness gains, training
should be distributed across three categories: low aerobic, high
aerobic, and anaerobic. Training load focus shows you how
much of your training is currently in each category and provides
training targets. Training load focus requires at least 7 days of
training to determine if your training load is low, optimal, or high.
After 4 weeks of training history, your training load estimate will
19
have more detailed target information to help you balance your
training activities.
Below targets: Your training load is lower than optimal in all
intensity categories. Try increasing the duration or frequency
of your workouts.
Low aerobic shortage: Try adding more low aerobic activities
to provide recovery and balance for your higher intensity
activities.
High aerobic shortage: Try adding more high aerobic activities
to help improve your lactate threshold and VO2 max. over
time.
Anaerobic shortage: Try adding a few more intense, anaerobic
activities to improve your speed and anaerobic capacity over
time.
Balanced: Your training load is balanced and provides allaround fitness benefits as you continue training.
Low aerobic focus: Your training load is mostly low aerobic
activity. This provides a solid foundation and prepares you for
adding more intense workouts.
High aerobic focus: Your training load is mostly high aerobic
activity. These activities help to improve lactate threshold,
VO2 max., and endurance.
Anaerobic focus: Your training load is mostly intense activity.
This leads to rapid fitness gains, but should be balanced with
low aerobic activities.
Above targets: Your training load is higher than optimal, and
you should consider scaling back the duration and frequency
of your workouts.
Recovery Time
Body Battery™
Your device analyzes your heart rate variability, stress level,
sleep quality, and activity data to determine your overall Body
Battery level. Like a gas gauge on a car, it indicates your
amount of available reserve energy. The Body Battery level
range is from 0 to 100, where 0 to 25 is low reserve energy, 26
to 50 is medium reserve energy, 51 to 75 is high reserve energy,
and 76 to 100 is very high reserve energy.

The MARQ device has a wrist-based pulse oximeter to gauge
the peripheral saturation of oxygen in your blood. Knowing your
oxygen saturation can help you determine how your body is
acclimating to high altitudes for alpine sport and expedition.
You can manually begin a pulse oximeter reading by viewing the
pulse oximeter widget (Getting Pulse Oximeter Readings,
page 21). You can also turn on all-day readings (Turning On
All-Day Pulse Oximeter Readings, page 21). When you remain
motionless, your device analyzes your oxygen saturation and
your elevation. The elevation profile helps indicate how your
pulse oximeter readings are changing, relative to your to
elevation.
On the device, your pulse oximeter reading appears as an
oxygen saturation percentage and color on the graph. On your
Garmin Connect account, you can view additional details about
your pulse oximeter readings, including trends over multiple
days.
For more information about pulse oximeter accuracy, go to
garmin.com/ataccuracy.
Recovery Heart Rate
If you are training with wrist-based heart rate or a compatible
chest heart rate monitor, you can check your recovery heart rate
value after each activity. Recovery heart rate is the difference
between your exercising heart rate and your heart rate two
minutes after the exercise has stopped. For example, after a
typical training run, you stop the timer. Your heart rate is
140 bpm. After two minutes of no activity or cool down, your
heart rate is 90 bpm. Your recovery heart rate is 50 bpm (140
minus 90). Some studies have linked recovery heart rate to
cardiac health. Higher numbers generally indicate healthier
hearts.
TIP: For best results, you should stop moving for two minutes
while the device calculates your recovery heart rate value. You
can save or discard the activity after this value appears.

Fitness Goals
Knowing your heart rate zones can help you measure and
improve your fitness by understanding and applying these
principles.
• Your heart rate is a good measure of exercise intensity.
• Training in certain heart rate zones can help you improve
cardiovascular capacity and strength.
If you know your maximum heart rate, you can use the table
(Heart Rate Zone Calculations, page 22) to determine the best
heart rate zone for your fitness objectives.
If you do not know your maximum heart rate, use one of the
calculators available on the Internet. Some gyms and health
centers can provide a test that measures maximum heart rate.
The default maximum heart rate is 220 minus your age.
About Heart Rate Zones
Many athletes use heart rate zones to measure and increase
their cardiovascular strength and improve their level of fitness. A
heart rate zone is a set range of heartbeats per minute. The five
commonly accepted heart rate zones are numbered from 1 to 5
according to increasing intensity. Generally, heart rate zones are
calculated based on percentages of your maximum heart rate.
Setting Your Heart Rate Zones

Intensity Minutes
To improve your health, organizations such as the World Health
Organization recommend at least 150 minutes per week of
moderate intensity activity, such as brisk walking, or 75 minutes
per week of vigorous intensity activity, such as running.
The device monitors your activity intensity and tracks your time
spent participating in moderate to vigorous intensity activities
(heart rate data is required to quantify vigorous intensity). You
can work toward achieving your weekly intensity minutes goal by
participating in at least 10 consecutive minutes of moderate to
vigorous intensity activities. The device adds the amount of
moderate activity minutes with the amount of vigorous activity
minutes. Your total vigorous intensity minutes are doubled when
added.
Earning Intensity Minutes
Your MARQ device calculates intensity minutes by comparing
your heart rate data to your average resting heart rate. If heart
rate is turned off, the device calculates moderate intensity
minutes by analyzing your steps per minute.
• Start a timed activity for the most accurate calculation of
intensity minutes.
• Exercise for at least 10 consecutive minutes at a moderate or
vigorous intensity level.
• Wear your device all day and night for the most accurate
resting heart rate.
Garmin Move IQ™
When your movements match familiar exercise patterns, the
Move IQ feature automatically detects the event and displays it
in your timeline. The Move IQ events show activity type and
duration, but they do not appear in your activities list or
newsfeed. For more detail and accuracy, you can record a timed
activity on your device.

You can do several things to extend the life of the battery.
• Change the power mode during an activity (Changing the
Power Mode, page 4).
• Turn on the battery saver feature from the controls menu
(Viewing the Controls Menu, page 1).
• Reduce the backlight timeout (Changing the Backlight
Settings, page 38).
• Reduce the backlight brightness.
• Use UltraTrac GPS mode for your activity (UltraTrac,
page 33).
• Turn off Bluetooth technology when you are not using
connected features (Connected Features, page 8).
• When pausing your activity for a longer period of time, use
the resume later option (Stopping an Activity, page 4).
• Turn off activity tracking (Turning Off Activity Tracking,
page 23).
• Use a watch face that is not updated every second.
For example, use a watch face without a second hand
(Customizing the Watch Face, page 35).
• Limit the smartphone notifications the device displays
(Managing Notifications, page 9).
• Stop broadcasting heart rate data to paired Garmin devices
(Broadcasting Heart Rate Data to Garmin Devices, page 14).
• Turn off wrist-based heart rate monitoring (Turning Off the
Wrist-based Heart Rate Monitor, page 14).

Wheel Size and Circumference
Your speed sensor automatically detects your wheel size. If
necessary, you can manually enter your wheel circumference in
the speed sensor settings.
The tire size is marked on both sides of the tire. This is not a
comprehensive list. You can also measure the circumference of
your wheel or use one of the calculators available on the
internet.
