Optional Fitness Accessories
You can use optional fitness accessories including a heart rate
monitor or a cadence sensor with your device. These
accessories use ANT+ wireless technology to send data to the
device.
Before you can use the fitness accessory with your device, you
must install the accessory according to the instructions included
with the accessory.
Pairing Your ANT+ Sensors
Before you can pair, you must put on the heart rate monitor or
install the sensor.
The device is compatible with the heart rate monitor, GSC™ 10
speed and cadence sensor, and tempe™ wireless temperature
sensor. You can customize a data field to display sensor data.
1 Bring the device within range (3 m) of the sensor.
NOTE: Stay 10 m away from other ANT+ sensors while
pairing.
2 Select Setup > ANT Sensor.

Tips for Pairing ANT+ Accessories with Your Garmin Device
• Verify that the ANT+ accessory is compatible with your
Garmin device.
• Before you pair the ANT+ accessory with your Garmin
device, move 10 m (32.9 ft.) away from other ANT+
accessories.
• Bring the Garmin device within range 3 m (10 ft.) of the ANT+
accessory.
• After you pair the first time, your Garmin device automatically
recognizes the ANT+ accessory each time it is activated. This
process occurs automatically when you turn on the Garmin
device and only takes a few seconds when the accessories
are activated and functioning correctly.
• When paired, your Garmin device receives data from only
your accessory, and you can go near other accessories.

About Heart Rate Zones
Display Settings
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.
Select Setup > Display.
Backlight Timeout: Sets the length of time before the backlight
turns off.
Screen Capture: Allows you to save the image on the device
screen.
Battery Save: Saves the battery power and prolongs the battery
life by turning off the screen when the backlight times out
(Turning On Battery Save Mode, page 11).
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 14) 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.
Setting Your Heart Rate Zones
Before the device can determine your heart rate zones, you
must set up your fitness user profile (Setting Your Fitness User
Profile, page 10).
You can manually adjust the heart rate zones according to your
fitness goals (Fitness Goals, page 8).
1 Select Setup > Fitness > HR Zones.
2 Enter the maximum and minimum heart rate for zone 5.
The maximum heart rate for each zone is based on the
minimum heart rate of the previous zone. For example, if you
enter 167 as a minimum heart rate for zone 5, the device
uses 166 as the maximum rate for zone 4.
3 Enter your minimum heart rate for zones 4-1.
Customizing the Device
Adjusting the Backlight Brightness

Device Information
Appendix
tempe
The tempe is an ANT+ wireless temperature sensor. You can
attach the sensor to a secure strap or loop where it is exposed
to ambient air, and therefore, provides a consistent source of
accurate temperature data. You must pair the tempe with your
device to display temperature data from the tempe.

accessories to display data.
24hr Max Temperature: The maximum temperature recorded in
the last 24 hours.

on the route. You must be navigating for this data to appear.
Elapsed (Total) Time: The total time recorded. For example, if
you start the timer and run for 10 minutes, then stop the timer
for 5 minutes, then start the timer and run for 20 minutes,
your elapsed time is 35 minutes.
Elevation: The altitude of your current location above or below
sea level.
Elevation Above Ground: The altitude of your current location
above ground level (if maps contain sufficient elevation
information).
Elevation - Maximum: The highest elevation reached since the
last reset.

change in vertical distance.
Glide Ratio To Dest: The glide ratio required to descend from
your current position to the destination elevation. You must
be navigating for this data to appear.
GPS Elevation: The altitude of your current location using GPS.
GPS Heading: The direction you are moving based on GPS.
GPS Signal Strength: The strength of the GPS satellite signal.
Grade: The calculation of rise (elevation) over run (distance).
For example, if for every 10 ft. (3 m) you climb you travel
200 ft. (60 m), the grade is 5%.
Heading: The direction you are moving.
Heart Rate: Your heart rate in beats per minute (bpm). Your
device must be connected to a compatible heart rate monitor.
Heart Rate Percent Max: The percentage of maximum heart
rate.
Heart Rate Zone: The current range of your heart rate (1 to 5).
The default zones are based on your user profile and
maximum heart rate (220 minus your age).

Lap Cadence: The average cadence for the current lap.
Lap Descent: The vertical distance of descent for the current
lap.
Lap Distance: The distance traveled for the current lap.
Lap Heart Rate: The average heart rate for the current lap.
Lap Heart Rate Percent: The average percentage of maximum
heart rate for the current lap.
