Broadcasting Heart Rate Data During an Activity

You can set up your Forerunner® watch to broadcast your heart rate data automatically when you begin an activity. For example, you can broadcast your heart rate data to an Edge® bike computer while cycling.

NOTE: Broadcasting heart rate data decreases battery life.
  1. Press START.
  2. Select an activity.
  3. Press Menu symbol.
  4. Select the activity settings.
  5. Select Broadcast Heart Rate.

    The Forerunner watch starts broadcasting your heart rate data in the background.

    NOTE: There is no indication that the watch is broadcasting your heart rate data during an activity.
  6. Begin the activity (Starting an Activity).
  7. Pair your watch with your compatible device.
    NOTE: The pairing instructions differ for each Garmin® compatible device. See your owner's manual.
    TIP: To stop broadcasting your heart rate data, stop the activity (Stopping an Activity (fenix 5)).
