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) 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
The device uses your user profile information from the initial
setup to determine your default heart rate zones. The device
has separate heart rate zones for running and cycling. For the
most accurate calorie data during your activity, set your
maximum heart rate. You can also set each heart rate zone and
enter your resting heart rate manually. You can manually adjust
Training
your zones on the device or using your Garmin Connect
account.

About Lifetime Athletes
A lifetime athlete is an individual who has trained intensely for
many years (with the exception of minor injuries) and has a
resting heart rate of 60 beats per minute (bpm) or less.
Activity Tracking
Turning On Activity Tracking
The activity tracking feature records your daily step count, step
goal, distance traveled, and calories burned for each recorded
day. Your calories burned includes your base metabolism plus
activity calories.

Running Dynamics
You can use your compatible f nix 3 device paired with the
HRM-Run™ accessory to provide real-time feedback about your
running form. If your f nix 3 device was packaged with the
HRM-Run accessory, the devices are already paired.
The HRM-Run accessory has an accelerometer in the module
that measures torso movement in order to calculate three
running metrics: cadence, vertical oscillation, and ground
contact time.
NOTE: The HRM-Run accessory is compatible with several
ANT+ fitness products and can display heart rate data when
paired. The running dynamics features are available only on
some Garmin devices.

5 Select Data Screens > Run Dynamics > Status > Enabled.
Cadence: Cadence is the number of steps per minute. It
displays 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.

Go for a run (Going for a Run).
Select UP or DOWN to view the running dynamics screen to
view your metrics.
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.

tips.
• Make sure you have the HRM-Run accessory.
The HRM-Run accessory has on the front of the module.
• Pair the HRM-Run accessory with your f nix 3 again,
according to the instructions.
• If the running dynamics data display zeros, make sure the
HRM-Run module is worn right-side up.
NOTE: Ground contact time appears only while running. It
cannot be calculated while walking.

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.
Foot Pod
Your device is compatible with the foot pod. You can use the
foot pod to record pace and distance instead of using GPS when
you are training indoors or when your GPS signal is weak. The
foot pod is on standby and ready to send data (like the heart
rate monitor).
After 30 minutes of inactivity, the foot pod powers off to
conserve the battery. When the battery is low, a message
appears on your device. Approximately five hours of battery life
remain.
Foot Pod Calibration
The foot pod is self-calibrating. The accuracy of the speed and
distance data improves after a few outdoor runs using GPS.
Calibrating Your Foot Pod Manually
Before you can calibrate your device, you must pair your device
with the foot pod (Pairing ANT+ Sensors).
Manual calibration is recommended if you know your calibration
factor. If you have calibrated a foot pod with another Garmin
product, you may know your calibration factor.
