The loop Á and hook  connection should be on your right
side.
4 Wrap the heart rate monitor around your chest, and connect
the strap hook to the loop.
NOTE: Make sure the care tag does not fold over.
After you put on the heart rate monitor, it is active and sending
data.
Tips for Erratic Heart Rate Data
If the heart rate data is erratic or does not appear, you can try
these tips.
• Reapply water to the electrodes and contact patches (if
applicable).
• Tighten the strap on your chest.
• Warm up for 5 to 10 minutes.
Heart Rate Features
• Follow the care instructions (Caring for the Heart Rate
Monitor, page 23).
• Wear a cotton shirt or thoroughly wet both sides of the strap.
Synthetic fabrics that rub or flap against the heart rate
monitor can create static electricity that interferes with heart
rate signals.
• Move away from sources that can interfere with your heart
rate monitor.
Sources of interference may include strong electromagnetic
fields, some 2.4 GHz wireless sensors, high-voltage power
lines, electric motors, ovens, microwave ovens, 2.4 GHz
cordless phones, and wireless LAN access points.
Running Dynamics
You can use your compatible fēnix 3 device paired with the
HRM-Run™ accessory or other running dynamics accessory to
provide real-time feedback about your running form. If your fēnix
3 device was packaged with the HRM-Run accessory, the
devices are already paired.
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 the
HRM-Run accessory and pair it with your device (Pairing ANT+
Sensors, page 21). If your fēnix 3 was packaged with the
accessory, the devices are already paired, and the fēnix 3 is set
to display running dynamics.
1 Select an option:
• If your HRM-Run accessory and fēnix 3 device are already
paired, skip to step 8.
• If your HRM-Run accessory and fēnix 3 device are not
already paired, complete all the steps in this procedure.
Hold
UP.

3 Select Settings > Apps.
4 Select an activity.
5 Select Data Screens.
6 Select a running dynamics data screen.
NOTE: The running dynamics screens are not available for
all activities.
7 Select Status > Enabled.
8 Go for a run (Going for a Run, page 6).
9 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.
NOTE: The color gauge for ground contact time balance is different (Ground Contact Time Balance Data, page 3).
Go to www.garmin.com 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.
Tips for Missing Running Dynamics Data
If running dynamics data does not appear, you can try these
tips.
• Make sure you have the HRM-Run accessory.
Accessories with running dynamics have on the front of the
module.
• Pair the HRM-Run accessory with your fēnix 3 device again,
according to the instructions.
• If the running dynamics data display shows only zeros, make
sure the heart rate monitor is worn right-side up.
NOTE: Ground contact time and balance appears only while
running. It is not calculated while walking.
Physiological Measurements
These physiological measurements require wrist-based heart
rate or a compatible heart rate monitor. The measurements are
estimates that can help you track and understand your training
activities and race performances. These estimates are provided
and supported by Firstbeat.
NOTE: The estimates may seem inaccurate at first. The device
requires you to complete a few activities to learn about your
performance.
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.
Predicted race times: Your device uses the VO2 max. estimate
and published data sources to provide a target race time
based on your current state of fitness. This projection also
presumes you have completed the proper training for the
race.
Recovery advisor: The recovery advisor displays how much
time remains before you are fully recovered and ready for the
next hard workout.
Stress score: Stress score requires a chest heart rate monitor.
Stress score measures your heart rate variability while
standing still for 3 minutes. It provides your overall stress
level. The scale is 1 to 100, and a lower score indicates a
lower stress level.
Performance condition: Your performance condition is a realtime assessment after 6 to 20 minutes of activity. It can be
added as a data field so you can view your performance
condition during the rest of your activity. It compares your
real-time condition to your average fitness level.
Lactate threshold: Lactate threshold requires a chest heart rate
monitor. Lactate threshold is the point where your muscles
start to rapidly fatigue. Your device measures your lactate
threshold level using heart rate and pace.
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 fēnix 3 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 can pair your
device with a compatible power meter to display your cycling
VO2 max. estimate.
Your VO2 max. estimate appears as a number and position on
the color gauge.

Recovery Time
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.
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 4).
You can use your Garmin device with wrist-based heart rate or a
compatible chest heart rate monitor to display how much time
remains before you are fully recovered and ready for the next
hard workout.
Recovery time: The recovery time appears immediately
following an activity. The time counts down until it is optimal
for you to attempt another hard workout.
Turning On the Recovery Advisor
For the most accurate estimate, complete the user profile setup
(Setting Up Your User Profile, page 9), and set your
maximum heart rate (Setting Your Heart Rate Zones,
page 9).
1 Hold UP.
2 Select My Stats > Recovery Advisor > Status > On.
3 Go for a run.
After 6 to 20 minutes, your performance condition appears
(Viewing Your Performance Condition, page 5).
4 After your run, select Save.
The recovery time appears. The maximum time is 4 days.
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.
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 9).
Performing a Guided Test to Determine Your Lactate
Threshold
Before you can perform the guided test, you must put on a heart
rate monitor and pair it with your device (Pairing ANT+ Sensors,
page 21). You must also have a VO2 max. estimate from a
previous run (About VO2 Max. Estimates, page 4).
TIP: The device requires a few runs with a heart rate monitor to
get an accurate maximum heart rate value and VO2 max.

Stress Score
Stress score is the result of a three-minute test performed while
standing still, where the fēnix 3 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 score 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 score can help you decide if your body is
ready for a tough training run or yoga.
Viewing Your Stress Score
Before you can view your stress score, you must put on a heart
rate monitor, pair it with your device (Pairing ANT+ Sensors,
page 21), and show the stress score app in the apps list

About Training Effect
Training Effect measures the impact of an activity on your
aerobic fitness. Training Effect accumulates during the activity.
As the activity progresses, the training effect value increases,
telling you how the activity has improved your fitness. Training
Effect is determined by your user profile information, heart rate,
duration, and intensity of your activity.
It is important to know that your Training Effect numbers (from
1.0 to 5.0) may seem abnormally high during your first few runs.
It takes several activities for the device to learn your aerobic
fitness.
Training
1 If necessary, add the project waypoint app to the apps list
