Tips for Getting Your Training Status

The training status feature depends on updated assessments of your fitness level, including at least one VO2 max. measurement per week (About VO2 Max. Estimates). 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 one time 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 watch for one or two weeks, your training status should be available.

  • Record all of your fitness activities on your primary training device, allowing your watch to learn about your performance (Syncing Activities and Performance Measurements).
  • Wear the watch consistently while you sleep, to continue generating an up-to-date HRV status. Having a valid HRV status can help maintain a valid training status when you do not have as many activities with VO2 max. measurements.
