Hi all, I have recently got a garmin watch instead of a polar watch. So I’m getting used to it. I selected a Hitt profile for a workout, I did some battle ropes in my session as well as freeletics and the watch seemed to read this as running/steps. Any idea what profile is best to use on garmin?
Considering the number of Garmin watches available, this is not easy to answer. I have used multiple Garmins of the ForeRunner series and I use the Strength app for my workouts.
Depending on what stats you want to collect, you should play with the apps and profiles and find your best fit. For me this is Strength: it counts time and calories, shows HR and even counts repetitions and / or sets.
I’ve used cardio setting and renamed it to Freeletics, now I’m using the HIT and so far no complaints.
You can edit each profile to your needs and screens
I’m on the Fenix 6 Pro, have been using it now on the Strength settings but just customised it to be Hitt as that’s all my workouts inc freeletics are. My main desire is to best collect the calories I’m burning and not to wrongly collect so that I think I’ve burnt more than I have, or flip side, burnt way more than what the watch is telling me. I know these things are never 100% but when I did my first session with the watch, it clocked battle ropes as walking/running and my calories was much higher.
I guess it’s just a case of playing around and customising it where needed
