Getting Your VO2 Max. Estimate for Running

This feature requires wrist-based heart rate or a compatible chest heart rate monitor. If you are using a chest heart rate monitor, you must put it on and pair it with your device (Pairing Your ANT‍+ Sensors).

For the most accurate estimate, complete the user profile setup (Setting Up Your User Profile), and set your maximum heart rate (Setting Your Maximum Heart Rate). The estimate may seem inaccurate at first. The device requires a few runs to learn about your running performance.

  1. Run for at least 10 minutes outdoors.
  2. After your run, select Save.

    A notification appears to display your first VO2 max. estimate and each time your VO2 max. increases.
