Running Dynamics
You can use your compatible Forerunner device paired with the
HRM-Run accessory or HRM-Tri accessory to provide real-time
feedback about your running form. If your Forerunner device
was packaged with the heart rate monitor, the devices are
already paired.
The heart rate monitor has an accelerometer in the module that
measures torso movement in order to calculate six running
metrics.
NOTE: The HRM-Run accessory and the HRM-Tri accessory
are compatible with several ANT+ fitness products and can
display heart rate data when paired. The running dynamics
features are available on only some Garmin devices.
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 for each step.
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 is not available while walking.
Training with Running Dynamics
Before you can view running dynamics, you must put on the
HRM-Run accessory or HRM-Tri accessory and pair it with your

Color Gauges and Running Dynamics Data
The running dynamics screen displays a color gauge for the primary metric. You can display cadence, vertical oscillation, or ground
contact time as the primary metric. The color gauge shows you how your running dynamics data compares 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. Less experienced runners tend to exhibit longer ground contact times, higher vertical oscillation, and lower cadence than
more experienced runners. However, taller runners typically have slightly slower cadences and slightly higher vertical oscillation. 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.

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.
• Knowing your heart rate zones can prevent you from
overtraining and can decrease your risk of injury.
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.
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. VO2 max. estimates are provided and
supported by Firstbeat Technologies Ltd. The Forerunner device
has separate VO2 max. estimates for running and cycling. You
can use your Garmin device paired with a compatible heart rate
monitor and power meter to display your cycling VO2 max.

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.
Recovery Advisor
You can use your Garmin device paired with the heart rate
monitor to display how much time remains before you are fully
recovered and ready for the next hard workout. The recovery
advisor feature includes recovery time and recovery check.
Recovery advisor technology is provided and supported by
Firstbeat.
Recovery check: The recovery check provides a real-time
indication of your state of recovery within the first several
minutes of an activity.
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
Before you can use the recovery advisor feature, you must put
on the heart rate monitor and pair it with your device (Pairing
Your ANT+ Sensors, page 8). If your Forerunner was packaged
with a heart rate monitor, the devices are already paired. For the

3 After your run, select Save.
The recovery time appears. The maximum time is 4 days,
and the minimum time is 6 hours.
12
If you are training with a compatible 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
