Conducting an FTP Test
Before you can conduct a test to determine your functional threshold power (FTP), you must pair a chest heart rate monitor and a power meter with your device (Pairing Your Wireless Sensors), and you must get your VO2 max. estimate (Getting Your VO2 Max. Estimate for Cycling).
- From the watch face, select START.
- Select a cycling activity.
- Hold MENU.
- Select .
Follow the on-screen instructions.
After you begin your ride, the device displays each step duration, the target, and current power data. A message appears when the test is complete.
After you complete the guided test, complete the cool down, stop the timer, and save the activity.
Your FTP appears as a value measured in watts per kilogram, your power output in watts, and a position on the color gauge.

Select Accept to save the new FTP.
Select Decline to keep your current FTP.
