These performance measurements are estimates that can help you track and understand your training activities and race performances. The measurements require a few activities using wrist-based heart rate or a compatible chest heart rate monitor. Cycling performance measurements require a heart rate monitor and a power meter.
These estimates are provided and supported by Firstbeat Analytics™. For more information, go to www.garmin.com/performance-data.
- VO2 max.
VO2 max. is the maximum volume of oxygen (in milliliters) you can consume per minute per kilogram of body weight at your maximum performance. Your device displays heat and altitude corrected VO2 max. values when you are acclimating to high heat environments or high altitude.
- Recovery time
The recovery time displays how much time remains before you are fully recovered and ready for the next hard workout.
