You can set the device to alert you when your heart rate is above or below a target zone or a custom range. For example, you can set the device to alert you when your heart rate is above 180 beats per minute (bpm).

  2. Select .
  3. Select an activity.
  4. Select > HR Alert.
  5. Select an option:
    • To use the range of an existing heart rate zone, select a heart rate zone.

    • To use custom minimum or maximum values, select Custom.

    TIP: You can use your Garmin Connect™ account to define custom zones (Run Options on Your Garmin Connect™ Account).

Each time you exceed or drop below the specified range or custom value, a message appears and the device vibrates.
