Starting an Activity

When you start an activity, GPS turns on automatically (if required). If you have an optional wireless sensor, you can pair it to the Forerunner® device (Pairing Your ANT‍+ Sensors).

  1. From the watch face, select START.
  2. Select an activity.
    NOTE: You can select different activities to display on the device through your Garmin Connect™ account (Changing Your Displayed Activities).
  3. If the activity requires GPS signals, go outside to an area with a clear view of the sky.
  4. Wait until the green status ring appears.

    The device is ready after it establishes your heart rate, acquires GPS signals (if required), and connects to your wireless sensors (if required).

  5. Select START to start the activity timer.

    The device records activity data only while the activity timer is running.

    TIP: You can hold DOWN while in an activity to open the music controls (Controlling Music Playback on a Connected Smartphone).
