maximum performance. In simple terms, VO2 max. is an
indication of athletic performance and should increase as your
level of fitness improves. VO2 max. estimates are provided and
supported by Firstbeat. You can use your Garmin device paired
with a compatible heart rate monitor and power meter to display
your cycling VO2 max. estimate.
Getting Your VO2 Max. Estimate
Before you can view your VO2 max. estimate, you must put on
the heart rate monitor, install the power meter, and pair them
with your device (Pairing Your ANT+ Sensors, page 10). If your
device was packaged with a heart rate monitor, the device and
sensor are already paired. For the most accurate estimate,
complete the user profile setup (Setting Up Your User Profile,

®
Tips for Cycling VO2 Max. Estimates
The success and accuracy of the VO2 max. calculation
improves when your ride is a sustained and moderately hard
effort, and where heart rate and power are not highly variable.
• Before your ride, check that your device, heart rate monitor,
and power meter are functioning properly, paired, and have
good battery life.
• During your 20 minute ride, maintain your heart rate at
greater than 70% of your maximum heart rate.
• During your 20 minute ride, maintain a fairly constant power
output.
• Avoid rolling terrain.
• Avoid riding in groups where there is a lot of drafting.
Setting Your Heart Rate Zones
The device uses your user profile information from the initial
setup to determine your heart rate zones. You can manually
adjust the heart rate zones according to your fitness goals
(Fitness Goals, page 9). For the most accurate calorie data
during your activity, you should set your maximum heart rate,
resting heart rate, and heart rate zones.
1 Select Menu > My Stats > Training Zones > Heart Rate
Zones.
2 Enter your maximum and resting heart rate values.
The zone values update automatically, but you can also edit
each value manually.
3 Select Based On:.
4 Select an option:
• Select BPM to view and edit the zones in beats per
minute.
• Select % Max. to view and edit the zones as a percentage
of your maximum heart rate.
ANT+ Sensors
• Select % HRR to view and edit the zones as a percentage
of your resting heart rate.
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.
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 20) 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.
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.
• Follow the care instructions (Caring for the Heart Rate
Monitor, page 16).
• 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.

Vector measures the force you apply a few hundred times every
second. Vector also measures your cadence or rotational
pedaling speed. By measuring the force, the direction of force,
the rotation of the crank arm, and time, Vector can determine
power (watts). Because Vector independently measures left and
right leg power, it reports your left-right power balance.
NOTE: The Vector S system does not provide left-right power
balance.
Cycling Dynamics
Cycling dynamics metrics measure how you apply power
throughout the pedal stroke, and where you apply power on the
pedal, allowing you to understand your particular way of riding.
Understanding how and where you produce power allows you to

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.
