Tips for Getting Your Training Status

The training status feature depends on updated assessments of your fitness level, including at least two VO2 max. measurements per week. Your VO2 max. estimate is updated after outdoor runs or rides with power during which your heart rate reached at least 70% of your maximum heart rate for several minutes. Indoor run activities do not generate a VO2 max. estimate in order to preserve the accuracy of your fitness level trend. You can disable VO2 max. recording for ultra run and trail run activities if you do not want those run types to affect your VO2 max. estimate (Turning Off VO2 Max. Recording).

To get the most out of the training status feature, you can try these tips.

  • At least two times per week, run or ride outdoors with a power meter, and reach a heart rate higher than 70% of your maximum heart rate for at least 10 minutes.

    After using the device for one week, your training status should be available.

  • Record all of your fitness activities on this device, or enable the Physio TrueUp™ feature, allowing your device to learn about your performance (Syncing Activities and Performance Measurements).
